This compelling book brings together physicians, artists, and scholars of film, literature, philosophy, art, and politics to discuss the representation of the corpse in Western culture. Spanning a timeline from the Renaissance to the present, these essays introduce readers to a modern autopsy, a public execution and dissection in seventeenth-century England, the genre of postmortem photography, the corpse as artist’s model, images of dead women in such popular films as Copycat and The Silence of the Lambs, and post-mortem scenes in the works of Flaubert, Balzac, Andres Serrano, and others.

Andres Serrano (born 1950) has photographed the homeless, Ku Klux Klansmen, corpses and feces, but he is most famous--or infamous, in some circles--for his “Piss Christ” (1987), showing a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine. Serrano returns again and again to scandalous or uncomfortable themes like religion, death, sex and violence, and his work prompts debate or even violent reaction, making vandalism and censorship inexorably part of the story of Serrano’s art as well. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium, Andres Serrano: Uncensored Photographspresents the many faces of Serrano and his work, tracing the trajectory of his career in more than 100 photographs.

This signed and numbered limited edition of Holy Works, the culmination of Andres Serrano's reinterpretation of Christian iconography, comes in a cloth box and includes a print. Serrano's intention with his newest works is not to recreate specific medieval or renaissance religious paintings, nor to invest them with the iconoclasm that made his name in the 1980s, but rather to renew the genre of sacred portraiture: "Rather than destroy sacred icons," says the artist, "I reinvent and reinforce them." Serrano's subjects for this series are selected from among his friends and acquaintances, emphasizing (like Caravaggio before him) the ordinariness of human features. The genres and themes are familiar, and Holy Worksincludes a "Last Supper" and a "Stations of the Cross" (rendered as a triptych panel), as well as bolder portrayals typical of Serrano-a "Blood Madonna" and a "Chinoise Madonna," for example. This volume is Serrano's major statement of his religious and artistic belief.
Protestant, and evangelical—presume that Andres serrano is an anti-Christian
artist whose work is intended to impugn the Christian tradition, revealing the
latent atheism of the contemporary art world as a whole. Although the controversy

Modern art can be confusing and intimidating--even ugly and blasphemous. And yet curator and art critic Daniel A. Siedell finds something else, something much deeper that resonates with the human experience. With over thirty essays on such diverse artists as Andy Warhol, Thomas Kinkade, Diego Velazquez, Robyn O'Neil, Claudia Alvarez, and Andrei Rublev, Siedell offers a highly personal approach to modern art that is informed by nearly twenty years of experience as a museum curator, art historian, and educator. Siedell combines his experience in the contemporary art world with a theological perspective that serves to deepen the experience of art, allowing the work of art to work as art and not covert philosophy or theology, or visual illustrations of ideas, meanings, and worldviews. Who's Afraid of Modern Art? celebrates the surprising beauty of art that emerges from and embraces pain and suffering, if only we take the time to listen. Indeed, as Siedell reveals, a painting is much more than meets the eye. So, who's afraid of modern art? Siedell's answer might surprise you.
