Item description for Remastered by Sebastien Agneessens...

In this book, a new generation of artists and designers defining today's visual culture deconstruct iconic masterpieces by pre-eminent masters from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance through to the 20th century and re-contextualize them to contemporary culture. "We have been so extensively exposed to these images that we automatically assign them the mythical status of masterpieces, but rarely look to understand what makes them so unique", says Curator Sebastien Agneessens.

Agneessens has commissioned over 50 international visual artists to "remaster" celebrated works , from "Guernica" by Pablo Picasso and "Gabrielle d'Estree and her Sister" by Ecole de Fontainbleau to "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt. The transformations by renowned contemporary artists and designers include Kenzo Minami, Vincent Skeltis, Mika Machida, Antoine et Manuel, Insect and more. The result is a collection of reinterpretations infused with energy, expressive imagery, insightful wit and socio-political commentary in a wide variety of styles.

Each contemporary image is juxtaposed alongside the original masterpiece on a double-page spread, with comments from both the artists and the curator, lending depth and insight to the interpretations and giving readers the opportunity to re-encounter the classics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Remastered?

Meh.  Oct 23, 2007
I bought this book immediately after visiting Stina Persson's website and seeing her striking interpretation of "The Birth of Venus". I couldn't get the image out of my mind. Unfortunately, the rest of the "remastered" works in this book are a mixed bag. Some of the artists really took the assignment to heart and produced images of real depth and intensity, but most of the works in this book are completely forgettable. Save yourself some money and buy it used, as I did. I plan on removing the pages that I like and chucking the rest in the garbage.
