A glimpse of the concealed. Body intuition art.

Art & Religion in the 21st Century.

Some exploit the shock potential of religious imagery – but many also reflect deeply on spiritual matters and are, in fact, some of the most profound and sensitive commentators on religion today. Here, Aaron Rosen shows how religious themes and images permeate the work of contemporary artists from across the globe. Artist-run Europe. Practice, projects, spaces.

Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation.

Silvia Federici recovers its historical substance by telling its story starting at the beginning, with the throes of its birth. This is a book of remembrance, of a trauma burned into the body of women, which left a scar on humanity's memory as deep and painful as those caused by famine, slaughter and enslavement. Federici shows that the birth of the proletariat required a war against women, inaugurating a new sexual pact and a new patriarchal era: the patriarchy of the wage. Ceramics.

Curating context. Beyond the gallery and into other fields. Curating Context describes a field where the curatorial practice is extended beyond curating exhibitions into working with entire contexts.

Curating context. Beyond the gallery and into other fields.

It articulates the why and how of curating art projects that gain their meaning in relation to a surrounding context, or which need a specific structure in order to play out. In this practice, curatorial considerations are interwoven with the production, and the intentions of artists and curators lead the way rather than institutional structures.The texts and conversations in this book reflect on how these curatorial methodologies not only situate works in different places, but also transfer curatorial methods into other fields, such as the contexts of law, urban development, and constructions of the civic.

This exciting curatorial approach where each project sets new demands, requires very specific skills rarely taught in curatorial programs. More... De Griekse oudheid. De Middeleeuwen.

De stilte en het onuitsprekelijke. Over beeldcultuur, kunst en mystiek.

Dit impliceert vrijwel altijd ook een zoektocht naar een diepere, existentiële en spirituele dimensie, een ervaring van het onuitsprekelijke die meer dan ooit de geijkte grenzen tussen kunst en mystiek, religie en atheïsme, tussen westerse en oosterse filosofie doorbreekt.

Goran Djurovic. Tragicomedia casting.

Seine Gemälde zeigen irritierende, ans Absurde grenzende Inszenierungen, die eine verstörende und zugleich magisch wirkende Anziehungskraft besitzen. Eine dramatisch ausgeleuchtete, kulissenhafte Architektur lässt seine darin agierenden Protagonisten in einer kühlen, aber nicht kalten Szenerie auftreten. In mehreren Farbschichten bringt der Künstler seine mal düstere, mal heitere Vision von einer tragikomischen Existenz auf die Leinwand.

Dabei greift er auf die Malweise alter Meister zurück: Viele Farbschichten liegen unter der sichtbaren Oberfläche. Gregor Schneider. Wand vor wand / Wall before wall.

Postmodernism: A Very Short Introduction. Poststructuralism: A Very Short Introduction. Public servant. Art and the crisis of the common good. “Public Servants boldly reaffirms the necessity of talking about art and politics together. In it, everything we thought we knew about both becomes questionable. This bracing, passionate, thrilling collection shakes it all up and goes after the clichés and the taboos with unrelenting fervor. It doesn’t tell us what to do, but it will certainly help us to figure that out for ourselves.” Red Star Over Russia. A visual history of the Soviet Union from 1917 to the death of Stalin. Posters, photographies and graphics from the David King collection. 'Powerful and immaculately produced' - Eye Magazine. Red Star Over Russia is a breathtaking visual history of the Soviet Union, from 1917 to the death of Stalin. Its urgent, cinema-verité; style plunges the reader into the centre of the shattering events that brought hope, chaos, heroism and horror to the citizens of the world's first workers' state.

Revolutionary upheaval turns into Civil War and famine; Stalin's Great Terror of the 1930s is followed by the brutal onslaught of Nazi invasion. The story ends with the intrigue surrounding the dictator's gruesome death in 1953. More than 550 posters, photographs and graphics are reproduced to the highest quality, accompanied by insightful and informative texts. Regina José Galindo. Curatore: prometeogallery di Ida Pisani.

Engaging the Senses in Culture and Social Theory David Howes Offers a full-bodied approach to the study of culture in which each sense serves as a potent register of meaning Description With audacious dexterity, David Howes weaves together topics ranging from love and beauty magic in Papua New Guinea to nasal repression in Freudian psychology and from the erasure and recovery of the senses in contemporary ethnography to the specter of the body in Marx.

Through this eclectic and penetrating exploration of the relationship between sensory experience and cultural expression, Sensual Relations contests the conventional exclusion of sensuality from intellectual inquiry and reclaims sensation as a fundamental domain of social theory. Seth Price. Social synthetic. Social Synthetic geeft een uitgebreid overzicht van de artistieke carrière van Seth Price (1973). Zijn vernieuwingen, interesses en thema’s hebben een grote invloed op zijn eigen generatie en jongere kunstenaars, mede door zijn benadering van digitale manipulatie en culturele transformatie.

Talking Art 1: Interviews with Artists Since 1976. The second edition of this indispensable anthology of Art Monthly’s best artist interviews since the early 1970s is now available in a more portable format. This popular collection of the best of Art Monthly's interviews since the magazine's inception in the early 1970s provides a supplementary history of twentieth-century art, from over 150 perspectives, through discussions between artists and critics.

The interviews provide the most immediate access to an artist's thought processes and offer compelling narratives of changing creative activities. Many leading practitioners – from Naum Gabo to Douglas Gordon – have been interviewed, often at highly significant moments in their careers. The artist interview has occupied an important position in Art Monthly since its first issue, and the book was first published as part of the magazine's 30th anniversary celebrations in 2007.

Tell Them I Said No. Martin HerbertTell Them I Said No This collection of essays by Martin Herbert considers various artists who have withdrawn from the art world or adopted an antagonistic position toward its mechanisms. A large part of the artist’s role in today’s professionalized art system is being present.

Providing a counterargument to this concept of self-marketing, Herbert examines the nature of retreat, whether in protest, as a deliberate conceptual act, or out of necessity. By illuminating these motives, Tell Them I Said No offers a unique perspective on where and how the needs of the artist and the needs of the art world diverge. Essays on Lutz Bacher, Stanley Brouwn, Christopher D’Arcangelo, Trisha Donnelly, David Hammons, Agnes Martin, Cady Noland, Laurie Parsons, Charlotte Posenenske, and Albert York.
