This book aims to investigate the perspective of painting in the current context, choosing a philosophical approach that carefully delineates mechanisms and capabilities in relation to the history of painting, to its contemporaneity and difference, also in relation to other media, trying to grasp those aspects related to its continuous questioning, as a dialectic body constantly evolving / repeating. This book is the first in Italy not to follow a historical path, but to present a survey of contemporary painting. Main figures from the international scene have joined this project: Thierry De Cordier, Peter Doig, Marc Desgrandchamps, Jonathan Meese, Neo Rauch, Luc Tuymans, Norbert Witzgall, and from Italy, in addition to the book’s curators, Flavio de Marco, Barbara Nahmad, Marco Pellizzola.
