This volume assembles case studies of the diverse processes and manifestations of emblematic strategies in contemporary art from an art historical perspective. Traditional emblematic strategies, such as the combination and juxtaposition of pictorial and textual elements along with enigmatic aspects of codification, find their aesthetic transformation in contemporary art. The contributions highlight specific ways in which emblematic strategies are still present in artworks of the 20 th and 21 st centuries.
