The Return of Religion
and Other Myths:
A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art

BAK (basis voor actuele kunst)
Utrecht, Netherlands

For this FSA Inspiration, we feature The Return of Religion and Other Myths: A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art (2009), a collection of anthologized writings compiled from the symposium On Post-Secularism (2009), and the exhibition The Art of Iconoclasm, curated by Sven Lütticken. These initiatives jointly explore “..the popular assumption of the return of religion to the field of contemporary art, the public sphere, present day politics, and the media in the West as a constitutive ‘myth’ of our current condition.”
