Azerbaijan: The colours of wind and fire - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Azerbaijan
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Teymur Daimi, Lana Sokolova, Monica Steinberg
Multiculturalism, coexistence, overlapping influences, mediation, contrasts and integration are all elements running through this creative account of the new art of Azerbaijan. A story that spans East and West, Islam and Christianity, ecology - environmental and moral - and the race to success, colours of the memory and materials in everyday use.
The works of over 200 artists collected in this volume are a reflection of the great political and cultural change in this country at the very tip of Asia, of its intense and dynamic dialogue between the past, tradition, modernity and the future.
Azerbaijan: The colors of wind and fire is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. Each country is represented by the works of established and emerging artists, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10 x 12 cm format.
