What do contemporary and historical art have in common? Can Old Masters help us understand more contemporary works?

You might think it's easy to spot the difference between contemporary and historical art, but how about what they have in common? Can Old Masters help us understand works such as 'the pile of bricks' and 'the unmade bed'? This lecture explores whether they can help us understand modern works, and whether artists' intentions and strategies have really changed across the centuries.
