Abstract

O livro de artista é um produto da arte contemporânea, construído deliberadamente a partir de um suporte preexistente, o livro, que é o seu protótipo, e ao qual louva ou faz contraposição crítica. A página e a estrutura podem ser enaltecidas ou sofrer todas as possibilidades de injúria e objeção, até alcançarem o estatuto da escultura e abandonarem a condição objetiva de livro. A página violada, de Paulo Silveira, propõe que as gradações percebidas não só podem como devem ser instrumentos da conceitualização e caracterização da obra e da categoria na qual ela se insere, desde certos exemplares do livro ilustrado até todo e qualquer livro-objeto. São apresentadas cerca de duzentas obras através de mais de seiscentas imagens, que também incluem eventos e documentos, a maioria delas coloridas e originais para este trabalho.

Abstract

Fragmenting Modernism is about Ford Madox Ford, a hero of the modernist literary revolution. Ford is a fascinating and fundamental figure of the time; not only because as a friend and critic of Ezra Pound and Joseph Conrad, editor of the 'English Review', and author of 'The Good Soldier', he shaped the development of literary modernism. But as the grandson of Ford Madox Brown, and son of a German music critic, he also manifested formative links with mainland European culture and the visual arts. In Ford there is the chance to explore continuity in artistic life at the turn of the century, as well as the more commonly identified pattern of crisis in the time. The argument throughout is that modernism possesses more than one face. Setting Ford in his cultural and historical context, the opening chapter debates the concept of fragmentation in modernism; later chapters discuss the notion of the personal narrative, and war writing. Ford's literary technique is studied comparatively, and plot summaries of his major books ('The Good Soldier' and 'Parade's End') are provided, as is a brief biography. Fragmenting Modernism will be useful for anyone studying the literature of the early twentieth century, impressionism or modernism in general terms, as well as for those who seek to investigate in detail one of the great polymorphous figures of the time.

Abstract

Art auctions have long captured the public imagination. They regularly make news headlines and have become synonymous with glamour, money and social distinction. The marketing of auction houses and the works they sell has resulted in firms attaining authoritative positions and the ability both to influence and reflect collecting tastes. Pedigree and Panache is the first comprehensive history of the art auction in Australia. In this fascinating work, Shireen Huda investigates the construction of the glamorous reputation of art auctions and art auction houses. Featuring absorbing case studies of key art auctions and major art auction houses in Australia (including Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Deutscher-Menzies) the work provides an overview of the origin and international development of art auctions. The development of the Australian marketplace is then explored, detailing colonial inception and continuing until Christie’s withdrawal of its saleroom presence in 2006. This book is an engaging read for those involved in the art industry, as well as historians, artists, collectors and anyone interested in the art market, art investment, social history and art history.

Abstract

Der Band befragt die Videokunst der frühen 1970er Jahre hinsichtlich ihrer Interventionen in Körper- und Mediendiskurse bzw. Subjektdiskurse der Zeit. Im Anschluss an Walter Benjamin entwickelt die Studie hierfür ein operatives Bildverständnis und arbeitet »den wachen Sinn für die Signatur der Zeit« aus den Praktiken und Diskursen der Videokunst heraus. Analysen zu Videowerken von Eleanor Antin, Lynda Benglis, Lili Dujourie, Sanja Ivecoviç, Martha Rosler, Lisa Steele, Hannah Wilke und anderen Künstlern und Künstlerinnen belegen einen repräsentationskritischen Einsatz des Mediums, der die Arbeit an, mit und in Bildern als eine ebenso ästhetische wie politische Argumentation lesbar macht.

Abstract

Current findings from anthropology, genetics, prehistory, cognitive and neuroscience indicate that human nature is grounded in a co-evolution of tool use, symbolic communication, social interaction and cultural transmission. Digital information technology has recently entered as a new tool in this co-evolution, and will probably have the strongest impact on shaping the human mind in the near future. A common effort from the humanities, the sciences, art and technology is necessary to understand this ongoing co- evolutionary process. Interactivity is a key for understanding the new relationships formed by humans with social robots as well as interactive environments and wearables underlying this process. Of special importance for understanding interactivity are human-computer and human-robot interaction, as well as media theory and New Media Art. »Paradoxes of Interactivity« brings together reflections on »interactivity« from different theoretical perspectives, the interplay of science and art, and recent technological developments for artistic applications, especially in the realm of sound.

Abstract

Dreamtime Superhighway presents a thorough and original contextualization of the rock art and archaeology of the Sydney Basin. By combining excavation results with rock art analysis it demonstrates that a true archaeology of rock art can provide insights into rock art image-making in people’s social and cultural lives. Based on a PhD dissertation, this monograph is a significantly revised and updated study which draws forcefully on rich and new data from extensive recent research—much of it by McDonald herself. McDonald has developed a model that suggests that visual culture—such as rock artmaking and its images and forms—could be understood as a system of communication, as a way of signaling group identifying behaviour. For the archaeologist of art, the anthropologist of art and those of us who try to think about past worlds… this monograph is a must read.

Abstract

While the first volume of the overalll work, which was published as "The historical Area of Austria" ("Geschichtsraum Österreich") in 2006, focused on the Hapsburgian "whole state" from the perspective of the most important phenomena and protagonists of the "Hapsburgian iconography", this second and concluding volume examines multifarious visualisations of the regional and supraregional historical myths of the 19th century in Vienna, the "centre", and in the regions, i.e. the Austrian Crownlands (part of which are identical with today´s federal provinces of the Republic of Austria). The difficult relationship between the "whole state" and the Crownlands constitutes the entire, extremely complex spectrum of reflections on Austrian 19th century history. Here, the kinds of methods and concrete goals with which regional memorial foundations interact or compete with dynastic strategies is a pivotal issue - on that has been examined only far too rarely in the past. Hence the present work intends to discuss both art-historical and historical phenomena with explore various historical reflections at the - frequently neglected - "periphery" and investigate visual approaches to one´s "own" history from the "present" of the 19th century (using prominent events such as the second Ottoman siege of 1683 and the "wars of liberation" against Napoleon as an example). The degrees of complexity, quantitative permeation and significant contrasts between Vienna - the "centre" - and the "provinces" in their different reflections on Austrian history clearly begin to emerge when we examine an extensive range of topics against the background of competing national, regional and communal strategies. Compared to the first volume "The historical Area of Austria", the perspective of the multifarious "historical area of Austria" shifts from the "whole state" to an analysis of a highly distinct "plurality of areas" (Karl Schlögel) with its own intrinsic laws. Such diversity is also an essential factor when we come to investigate the prolific amount of Austrian landscape art in the 19th century and the role it played in forging identity. It graphically demonstrates that a deeper understanding of Austria´s federal structures is not possible without gaining a comprehensive insight into 19th century history.

Abstract

Die Choreographin Meg Stuart arbeitet mit Tänzern, Schauspielern, Musikern, Videokünstlern und bildenden Künstlern zusammen. Auf diese Weise entstehen Choreographien, die weniger auf der reinen Tanzbewegung aufbauen als vielmehr auf Relationen zwischen Körperbewegung, Stimme, Videobild, Kostüm und Raumanordnung. Die Unterteilung der Bühne, die Gleichzeitigkeit und das Nebeneinander von unabhängigen Momenten, die Bewegung auf der Stelle heben die Linearität des Verlaufs auf. Die Choreographien entgrenzen sich in Richtung Bewegungs- und Sprachstudie, Installation und Tableau vivant. Die Studie betrachtet diese Merkmale erstmals unter dem Gesichtspunkt eines erweiterten Bildbegriffs. Dabei werden Themen wie die Projektion, die Blicklenkung, die Pose, der Affekt und die Duration ausgearbeitet. Die Frage nach Bildqualitäten in der Ordnung von Bewegung und Choreographie geht über die Fokussierung auf Meg Stuart hinaus und liefert einen wichtigen Beitrag für die Bild- und Kunstwissenschaft.
