Item description for Mythos by Eckhard Schneider Uwe Schneede...
The Greek word mythos means "story" or "legend." This exhibition catalogue gathers together work by three major living artists who have very much used myth in their creative processes--and referenced it in their resulting artworks--alongside work by the greatest myth-maker of them all, the late German sculptor and performance artist, Joseph Beuys, who created a new story of origin for himself and championed the healing power of art and universal creativity. With ample illustrations, scholarly essays, biographies and bibliographies, this volume will shed new light on the work of Douglas Gordon, Matthew Barney and Cy Twombly in the context of Beuys.
