Salt in the Wound takes the reader on a journey through Europe, following different paths of 18 established and mid-career contemporary artists, including Anish Kapoor, Bridget Riley, Luc Tuymans, Paula Rego, and Sean Scully. What drives their work? How do cultural landscape, political climate, and other circumstances filter through it? By encountering the artists directly, through conversation and debate, the author delves into both local and global dimensions of the art world. Further reflection on various traditions and regions of the continent allow new perspectives to emerge that speak to the diversity of art across Europe.
