As an essential dynamic of our human existence and of our fundamentally ephemeral time, the TRANSITORY becomes manifest in contemporary art. The publication explores the work of 14 international artists who in shaping the ephemeral are imbuing it with varying degrees of permanence. Central themes running through their aesthetic approaches are a keen engagement with the human condition and existential figurations of the ephemeral and the transitory, in which both the cycles of life and evanescence and the transcendent energies of empathy, love, and collective die transzendenten Energien der Empathie, der Liebe und der kollektiven participation are activated.
