Archéologie, art contemporain et recyclage des déchets
Micol Grazioli

Works of art are by nature eminently irreplaceable objects. Yet the term covers works whose functions have been very diverse and have become superimposed through time: focussed on sexuality in the Palaeolithic; celebrating power and its ally the divine from the Chalcolithic onwards; illustrating the prestige of elites in urban societies; and also, conferring an aesthetic dimension to utilitarian objects (what we now call design).
