      Summary
      • As the fiftieth anniversary of the Kennedy assassination approaches, the traumatic aspects of the tragedy continue to haunt our perceptions of the 1960s. One reason for this lies in the home movie of the incident filmed by Abraham Zapruder, a bystander who became one of the twentieth century's most important accidental documentarians. The first book devoted exclusively to the topic, Zaprudered traces the journey of the film and its effect on the world's collective imagination. Providing insightful perspective as an observer of American culture, Norwegian media studies scholar Oyvind Vagnes begins by analyzing three narratives that are projections of Zapruder's images: performance group Ant Farm's video The Eternal Frame, Don DeLillo's novel Underworld, and an episode from Seinfeld. Subsequent topics he investigates include Dealey Plaza's Sixth Floor Museum, Zoran Naskovski's installation Death in Dallas, assassin video games, and other artifacts of the ways in which the footage has made a lasting impact on popular culture and the historical imagination. Vagnes also explores the role of other accidental documentarians, such as those who captured scenes of 9/11. Zapruder's footage has never yielded a conclusive account of what happened in Dealey Plaza. Zaprudered thoroughly examines both this historical enigma and its indelible afterimages in our collective imagination.
      • Review: "In a newly published book, Zaprudered: The Kennedy Assassination Film in Visual Culture , the Norwegian scholar Oyvind Vagnes attempts to trace the tangled history of the film and the ways in which it has travelled through popular culture, imprinting itself on our collective memory of the assassination." John Byrne, The Irish Times "Oyvind Vagnes examines how the images from Zapruder's film have traveled and spread virally through American culture over the past almost-50 years, recycled and re-mediated endlessly in picture magazines and television news, to art works - from paintings to video art to installations - to novels, Hollywood cinema, TV sitcoms, video games, and 3-D virtual reality animation." - The Sixties

      • Review: "Helena Buffery and Carlota Caulfield have assembled an excellent edition that succeeds in pushing on-going discussions of Barcelona, its space, and art in new directions. Through a series of thoughtful essays by leading critics, 'Barcelona: Visual Culture, Space and Power' provides an intriguing interdisciplinary treatment of a city that continues to enthral and challenge both locals and visitors alike. Highly recommended." Professor Robert Davidson, University of Toronto "The volume offers a fascinating, visually engaging portrait of how artists from multiple disciplines have employed innovative aesthetic practices to negotiate the urban environment of Barcelona. The included essays will most certainly appeal to readers interested in the relationship between culture and European cityscapes." Professor Sharon Feldman, University of Richmond

      Symbols of plural faith : Muslim popular visual culture in India / by Yousuf Saeed.

      Summary
      • This book highlights the history of Islamic popular devotional art and visual culture in 20th-century India, weaving the personal narrative of the author's journey through his understanding of the faith. The volume begins with an introductory exploration of how the basic and universal image of Mecca and Medina may have been imported into Indian popular print culture and what variants it resulted in here. Besides providing a historical context of the pre-print culture of popular Muslim visuality, the book also explores the impact the Partition of India of 1947 may have made on the calendar art in South Asia. A large portion of the book focuses on the contemporary prints of different localised images found in India and what role these play in the users' lives, especially in the augmentation of their popular faith and cultural practices. It also compares the images published in India with some of those available in Pakistan, since the different trends in both countries reflect important socio-political trajectories. Finally, the volume provides a short introspection on why such a vibrant visual culture continues to thrive among South Asian Muslims despite the questions raised by the orthodoxy on its legitimacy in Islam, and why images and popular visual cultures are inevitable for popular piety despite the orthodox Muslims' increasing dissociation from them. An illustrated volume, this is arguably the first book of its kind on Indian Muslim poster art. Using rare images and simple narratives, with anecdotes about rituals, ceremonies and cultural traditions running parallel to research findings, it will appeal to the lay reader as well as the specialist.

      Summary
      • The first of three text books, published in association with the Open University, which offer an innovatory exploration of art and visual culture. Through carefully chosen themes and topics rather than through a general survey, the volumes approach the process of looking at works of art in terms of their audiences, functions and cross-cultural contexts. While focused on painting, sculpture and architecture, it also explores a wide range of visual culture in a variety of media and methods. "1000-1600: Medieval to Renaissance" includes essays on key themes of Medieval and Renaissance art, including the theory and function of religious art and a generic analysis of art at court. Explorations cover key canonical artists such as Simone Martini and Botticelli and key monuments including St Denis and Westminster Abbey, as well as less familiar examples.

      Summary
      • "Exploring Art and Visual Culture: A Reader" brings together essential primary texts by artists, critics and art historians ranging from the medieval period right through to our own times. There is no other reader available that covers such an extensive period. Selected by leading academics in their field, and published in conjunction with the Open University, the reader will be an essential sourcebook for every student of art history as well as all those seeking a greater understanding of art and of the cultural and historical context in which it is made. "The Reader" is organised in three parts. The first section, Medieval to Renaissance, 1000 - 1600, includes extracts from the writings of the Venerable Bede, Vasari, Bernard of Clairvaux, Aristotle, Erwin Panofsky, Nikolaus Pevsner, Erasmus and Walter Pater, among others, and sections on sacred art, Gothic architecture, the art of the crusades and the Renaissance. The second part Patronage to the Public Sphere, 1600 - 1850 includes texts by W.J.T. Mitchell, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Crowe, Richard Shiff and Caspar David Freidrich and examines the city and the country, the golden age of Dutch painting, London and Paris, landscape design, exploration, neoclassicism and the birth of Romanticism. The section on Exploring Art from Modernity to Globalisation, 1850 - 2010 includes writings by Marinetti, Gauguin, John Ruskin, William Morris, John Berger, Clement Greenberg, Lucy Lippard and Miwon Kwon examining modernism, the rise of abstraction, conceptual art and globalisation.

      Summary
      • Icons provide depictions of God or encounters with the divine that enable reflection and prayer. 'In the Beginning is the Icon' explores the value of these images for a theology of liberation. Iconology, art theory, philosophical aesthetics, art history and anthropology are integrated with rigorous theological reflection to argue that the creation and observation of pictures can have a liberating effect on humanity. In presenting art from across the world, 'In the Beginning is the Icon' reflects the ethnocentricity of both art and religious studies and offers a new cross-cultural approach to the theology of art.

      Summary
      • Geopolitics is changing. The conduct of war and peace is being transformed by our increasing dependence on visual images and practices. Satellite surveillance, computer games, streaming video, retinal scanning and mobile phone cameras are just some of the technologies that are shaping contemporary geopolitics. From the horrors of 9/11 and Abu Ghraib to the mechanical, mundane functioning of airport biometrics, geopolitical truths are established through a process of visual demonstration. Visual culture has become part of the apparatus of persuasion. 'Observant States' brings together leading international authors to explore the developing relationship between geopolitics and visual culture. The result is a definitive contribution to a globally significant, newly emergent field of enquiry.
      • Review: 'Observant States is one of the best ever collections addressing visual genres and the geopolitics and biopolitics of war. Chapter after chapter, it delivers conceptual innovation and powerful political critique. It's an ideal text to build a course around; I am eager to use it' - Michael Shapiro, Professor of Political Science, University of Hawaii at Manoa

      • The First World War was waged through the participation not just of soldiers but of men, women, and children on the home front. Mass-produced, full-color, large-format war posters were both a sign and an instrument of this historic shift in warfare. War posters celebrated, in both their form and content, the modernity of the conflict. They also reached an enormous international audience through their prominent display and continual reproduction in pamphlets and magazines in every combatant nation, uniting diverse populations as viewers of the same image, and bringing them closer, in an imaginary and powerful way, to the war. Most war posters were aimed particularly at civilian populations. Posters nationalized, mobilized, and modernized those populations, thereby influencing how they viewed themselves and their activities. The home-front life - factory work, agricultural work, domestic work, the consumption and conservation of goods, as well as various forms of leisure - became, through the viewing of posters, emblematic of national identity and of each citizen's place within the collective effort to win the war. Essays by Jay Winter, Jeffrey T. Schnapp, Jennifer D. Keene, and others reveal the centrality of visual media, particularly the poster, within the specific national contexts of Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States during World War I. Ultimately, posters were not merely representations of popular understanding of the war, but instruments influencing the reach, meaning, and memory of the war in subtle and pervasive ways.

      Summary
      • Between 1777 and 1816, botanical expeditions crisscrossed the vast Spanish empire in an ambitious project to survey the flora of much of the Americas, the Caribbean, and the Philippines. While these voyages produced written texts and compiled collections of specimens, they dedicated an overwhelming proportion of their resources and energy to the creation of visual materials. European and American naturalists and artists collaborated to manufacture a staggering total of more than 13,000 botanical illustrations. Yet these images have remained largely overlooked - until now. In this lavishly illustrated volume, Daniela Bleichmar gives this archive its due, finding in these botanical images a window into the worlds of Enlightenment science, visual culture, and empire. Through innovative interdisciplinary scholarship that bridges the histories of science, visual culture, and the Hispanic world, Bleichmar uses these images to trace two related histories: the little-known history of scientific expeditions in the Hispanic Enlightenment and the history of visual evidence in both science and administration in the early modern Spanish empire. As Bleichmar shows, in the Spanish empire visual epistemology operated not only in scientific contexts but also as part of an imperial apparatus that had a long-established tradition of deploying visual evidence for administrative purposes.

      • Includes bibliographical references.
      Summary
      • Abstract: This thesis examines developments within contemporary experimental moving image production in Northern Ireland, exemplified in works by established and emerging artists, film-makers and performers. It identifies technological and formal convergences across media, and examines these in relation to the physical forms in which work is currently being exhibited and circulated, interpreted and evaluated. The aesthetic aspects of the works are contextualized within broader creative practices that blur boundaries between visual arts and subvert categories such as 'new media' and 'expanded cinema' that are becoming institutionalized. The study is shaped by four linked investigations into work concerned with the watching/being watched dyad emerging in issues of imprisonment, surveillance, traumatic recall, and myth-making. The first considers prison film-making from positions of memory-telling and rehabilitation in projects by the Prisons Memory Archive and Educational Shakespeare Company. Examined are video installations consisting of recordings of site-reactive testimonies told by former prisoners and staff of the now closed Maze and Armagh prisons. This is followed by serving prisoners' reinterpretations of Shakespeare as a means of telling their own collective story. The project turns to artists' inversions of state observation, which use surveillance devices reflexively to show how the real can be compromised by perception of the real. Public and private memories of trauma are encountered in live mixed media performance installations where the thesis explores connections between people's suffering expressed through varied art objects (e.g. screens, props, artists' bodies, etc.) in the same space. This raises questions surrounding the ethics and processes of representing difficult memories while confronting perceptions of female roles in conflict. Finally, the project considers artists' disruptions of history, myth, language, and interpretation to find different ways of articulating individual truths suppressed by communal 'official histories'.

      Summary
      • Abstract: In much of the existing literature on everyday life the spaces, rhythms and routines of the modern city are overwhelmingly privileged as sites of the everyday. This research relocates the topography of the everyday from its habitually urban focus, out into the English countryside by presenting an account of certain aspects of everyday life from a non-metropolitan perspective. The rural is often portrayed as existing outside of modernity, or as its passive victim. This thesis recasts the rural as an active and complex site of modernity and as such contributes to alternative ways of thinking the rural and a new perspective on the everyday. A central concern is to complicate established distinctions between the city and the country through developing the notion of the non-metropolitan. Also important, is discussion of how the ongoing tension between ancient and modern, and preservation and development, is articulated in non-metropolitan everyday practices. This study theoretically repopulates the rural, thinking it not only as a space to be looked at, moved through or visited, but as a space which is lived in. The first chapters examine everyday practices more often associated with the urban such as driving and littering, and rethinks them through a rural perspective. The later chapters focus on practices that are more traditionally embedded in the non-metropolitan: membership of the Women's Institute and calendar customs such as village fetes, examining how these activities might be re-situated in discourses of modernity. The work is primarily informed by visual cultures including scrapbooks, photographs and films, that articulate how these aspects of the everyday might operate differently in non-metropolitan places. In addition, textual and original archival work contributes significantly to this study.

      Summary
      • Fascinating and highly informative, "The Appearance of Witchcraft" explores how visual representations of witchcraft contributed to the widespread acceptance of witch beliefs in sixteenth-century Europe and helped establish the preconditions for the widespread persecution of witches. Focusing on the visual contraction, or figure of the witch, and the activity of witchcraft, Zika places the study in the context of sixteenth-century witchcraft and demonological theory, and in the turbulent social and religious changes of the period. Zika argues that artists and printers used images to relate witchcraft theories, developed by theologians and legitimated by secular authorities, to a whole range of contemporary discourses on women and gender roles, sexuality, peasant beliefs and medical theories of the body. He also examines the role of artist as mediators between the ideas of the elite and the ordinary people. For students of medieval history or anyone interested in the appearance of witchcraft, this will be an enthralling and invaluable read.
      • Review: 'This fascinating study of the images of witchcraft produced during the period from about 1480 to 1590 shows how artists and printers gave a visual dimension tothe newly defined crime of witchcraft and how audiences may have viewed and understood them. Charles Zika's extensive knowledge of the production of these images, his detailed analysis of more than 150 illustrations, his mastery of the vasts cholarship on early modern witchcraft and his demonstration of the way in which artists and printers drew upon different artistic and literary traditions to convey social and cultural meaning make this study one of the most valuable contributions to the history of European witchcraft in the past twenty years... sets the standard for future work on the subject.' - Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'This long awaited book is the definitive history of the image of the witch in fifteenth and sixteenth century Europe. Zika's scholarship is extraordinary - he takes us through popular perceptions, iconography and intellectual history as he unravels the meanings of these compelling images. A masterly study, it will interest all historians of sexuality, art, and culture.' - Lyndal Roper, The University of Oxford 'This is a major reworking of the visual history of witchcraft and more comprehensive than anything that has gone before. The scholarship is exhaustive and impeccable throughout... It will be the standard work on the subject for many years.' - Stuart Clark, University of Swansea 'beautifully illustrated... very readable narrative...' History Teaching Review
