STATUES ALSO DIE: Destruction and Preservation in Ancient and Modern Times

This volume collects the viewpoints of the speakers of the International Symposium held on 28 and 29 May 2018 in Turin, following the opening of the exhibition “Statues Also Die”.
The conference was attended by scholars from different disciplinary and artistic areas, engaged in a critical discussion on the destruction and preservation of material culture in the past as well as in more recent times. These chronologically and geographically widespread phenomena are examined here through the lenses of archaeology, history, contemporary art, sociology, anthropology, and museology.
