The Annual Lodown Art Special - VOL.7
Following up on the success of “Mystery“ - our special edition from last year, which got awarded a several times by prestigious circles you never heard about - Lodown continues its exploration of contemporary art under a single-topic superstructure:
What remained of the idea of Humanism in our days and age? Are we heading towards another intellectual awakening or should we better abandon all hope immediately? Originally associated with the cultural movement in Italy in the late Medieval period, we’ll twist and turn this particular term up to the point where settled definitions start to crumble in order to reveal a rather abstract concept. This undermining is an assault to your senses. Renaissance is our dogma for this year’s annual art compendium. Its theme should be erratically taken, a profound platonic adaptation to zeitgeist.
We are not trying to explain but to entertain – you pick your draft hacking this library. It’s a show – the surface is so deep as rhizomes shape-shift right in front of you. It’s an ode to the renaissance! An unauthorized collection of images build into this frame.
