ART & FOOTBALL
This page is part of the Ekkono training in values through football initiative. The objective is to contribute to the interpretation of contemporary problems through the link between Football and Art, offering different possibilities of reading and understanding this sport in the context of today’s society.
We will be uploading and sharing art works linked to football made by artists, with the aim of creating a «collection» of references with which to promote thinking and reflecting on this sporting practice, from different disciplines: illustration, video, sculpture, painting, etc.
ARTIST: ANDREAS GURSKY (Photographer, 1955 – . Germany)
TITLE: Amsterdam, EM Arena II
This photograph taken from an aerial viewpoint, creates an otherworldly perspective. The extended view of the manicured grass and the players "dancing" on it, make the image become almost abstract, reduced to dots, lines and gestures on a field of color.
