Eros was the Greek god of Love. But Eros is also what fuels our desire for knowledge and our creativity. Passion and lust likewise come under the heading of Eros. And in Freudian psychoanalysis, Eros is the libido, one of our two vital instincts. The representation and exploration of Eros is a classic and recurring motif in art. The catalogue documents the 2007 exhibition devoted specifically to Eros in modern art. Eros in der Kunst der Moderne contains an essay by Konrad Liessmann on the relationship between art and eroticism, plus a glossary of related terms.
