“From the very beginning, self-chosen poverty has offered itself as a path towards spiritual practices, in a more modest way than with the Christian ascetics in the desert. In the art of our times a movement like Arte Povera has, in names like Beuys, Burri and Paolini, reconnected to this tradition. Today, when the display windows overflow, the poor and obsolete expressions of a work of art position themselves in shocking contrast to the seductive commercial aesthetics and commodity fetishism that permeate contemporary culture: reclaiming the inner life from the excesses of the material world.” (Peter Cornell, from the foreword)
