Artists as Iconographers

 - Artists as Iconographers
Catalogue dedicated to contemporary artists whose production concentrate on the reuse of existing images. This publication investigates the various practices of these iconographer artists through documentation, illustrations, essays, and interviews. Included is a leaflet with excerpts from Luis Jacob's Album XIII, as part of his image bank project of found material from printed media.
For over a century now, iconographer artists have fuelled their approach by tapping into the diversity of images produced by othersand spread through society by industrial means. From collage to the post-internet school, from archival installations to Appropriationist quotation and image constellations, the present book puts these art practices into perspective, focusing on the last forty years, an extraordinarily dynamic period that recently witnessed the invention and development of a new way of disseminating information and images, the internet. Through theoretical texts, artists' interviews, and exhibition practices, the book maps the connections artists maintain with images and examines emotion as the driving force in our interactions with them.
