The sculpted foot of Michelangelo's David was damaged in by a purportedly mentally ill artist. With each incident, intellectuals must confront the unsettling dynamic between destruction and art. Renowned art historian Dario Gamboni is the first to tackle this weighty issue in depth, exploring specters of censorship, iconoclasm, and vandalism that surround such acts.
Gamboni uncovers here a disquieting phenomenon that still thrives today worldwide. As he demonstrates throug. Dario Gamboni reassesses the motives and circumstances behind deliberate attacks carried out - by institutions as well as individuals - on public buildings, churches, sculptures, paintings and other works of art in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Motivated in the first instance by the recent destruction of countless monuments in Europe's ex-Communist states, which challenged the assumption that iconoclasm was truly a thing of the past, the author has discovered just how widespread the destruction of art is today, whose forms include explicable and inexplicable vandalism, political protest and censorship of every kind.
The history of iconoclasm is shown to reflect the changing and conflicting definitions of art itself. Theories and Methods; 2. A Historical Outline; 3. The Fall of the 'Communist Monuments'; 4.

The Destruction of Art
Enlarge Image. With each incident, artists and intellectuals must confront the unsettling dynamic between destruction and art. Renowned art historian Dario Gamboni is the first to tackle this weighty issue in depth, exploring spectres of censorship, iconoclasm and vandalism that surround such acts. Initially galvanized by the sweeping obliteration of architecture and art under the Communist regimes of the Soviet Union and eastern bloc countries, Gamboni investigated other instances of destroyed art and architecture around the globe, uncovering a disquieting and surprisingly widespread phenomenon that still thrives today. As he demonstrates through analyses of incidents occurring in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in both the United States and Europe, a complex relationship exists among the evolution of modern art, contemporary destruction of art, and the long history of iconoclasm.
