The sculpted foot of MichelangeloOCOs David was damaged in 1991 by a purportedly mentally ill artist.

With each incident, intellectuals must confront the unsettling dynamic between destruction and art. aRenowned 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.aGamboni uncovers here a disquieting phenomenon that still thrives today worldwide. As he demonstrates through analyses of incidents occurring in nineteenth- and twentieth-century America and Europe, a complex relationship exists among the evolution of modern art, destruction of artworks, and the long history of iconoclasm.

From the controversial removal of Richard SerraOCOs Tilted Arc from New York CityOCOs Federal Plaza to suffragette protests at LondonOCOs National Gallery, Gamboni probes the concept of artistOCOs rights, the power of political protest and how iconoclasm sheds light on societyOCOs relationship to art and material culture.aCompelling and thought-provoking, The Destruction of Art forces us to rethink the ways that we interact with art and react to its power to shock or subdue.aa
