It is the second catalogue in the range. At the same time it is the first Erarta catalogue devoted to a certain issues in contemporary art. The painting, graphics, sculpture, and objects published in the catalogue are united by the fact that these works deliver interpretations of Biblical and mythological scenes and heroes. The way contemporary artists view these scenes turns out unusual and even shocking for the on-looker. Yet, this context helps contemporary artists understand important aesthetic and philosophical problems of today and reveals the bonds existing between contemporary art and the art of past époques. Why do contemporary artists are still willing to address Biblical and mythological scenes? What new meanings do these scenes traditional for European art gain and what can they tell us nowadays? These are the issues the catalogue is pursuing to answer.
