      Summary
      • The 'archive' is often viewed as a collection of historical documents that records and orders information about people, places and events. This view nevertheless obscures a crucial point: the archive, whilst subject to the vagaries of time and history, can also determine the future. This point has gained urgency in modern-day North Africa and the Middle East where the archive has come to the fore as a site of social, historical, theoretical, and political contestation. Dissonant Archives is the first book to consider the ways in which contemporary artists from the Middle East and North Africa - including Emily Jacir, Walid Raad, Jananne Al Ani, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Mariam Ghani, Zineb Sedira, and Akram Zaatari - are utilizing and disrupting the function of the archive and, in so doing, highlighting a systemic, perhaps irrevocable, crisis in institutional and state-ordained archiving across the region. In exploring and producing archives, be they alternative, interrogative or fictional, these artists are not simply questioning the authenticity, authority or authorship of the archive; rather, they are unlocking its regenerative, radical potential.The result provides essential insights into the nexus between art and politics in the contemporary Middle East.

      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
      • How did our ancestors die? Whereas in our own day the subject of death is usually avoided, in pre-Industrial England the rituals and processes of death were present and immediate. People not only surrounded themselves with memento mori, they also sought to keep alive memories of those who had gone before. This continual confrontation with death was enhanced by a rich culture of visual artefacts. In "The Art of Death", Nigel Llewellyn explores the meanings behind an astonishing range of these artefacts, and describes the attitudes and practices which lay behind their production and use. Illustrated and explained in this book are an array of little-known objects and images such as death's head spoons, jewels and swords, mourning-rings and fans, wax effigies, church monuments, Dance of Death prints, funeral invitations and ephemera, as well as works by well-known artists, including Holbein, Hogarth and Blake.

      Summary
      • This survey of Mexico s visual culture from the mid-1800s to the present illuminates the powerful role of photographs, films, illustrated magazines, and image-filled books in the construction of Mexican identity.
      • In Looking for Mexico, a leading historian of visual culture, John Mraz, provides a panoramic view of Mexico's modern visual culture from the U.S. invasion of 1847 to the present. Along the way, he illuminates the powerful role of photographs, films, illustrated magazines, and image-filled history books in the construction of national identity, showing how Mexicans have both made themselves and been made with the webs of significance spun by modern media. Central to Mraz's book is photography, which was distributed widely throughout Mexico in the form of cartes-de-visite, postcards, and illustrated magazines. Mraz analyzes the work of a broad range of photographers, including Guillermo Kahlo, Winfield Scott, Hugo Brehme, Agustin Victor Casasola, Tina Modotti, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Hector Garcia, Pedro Meyer, and the New Photojournalists. He also examines representations of Mexico's past in the country's influential picture histories: popular, large-format, multivolume series replete with thousands of photographs and an assortment of texts. Turning to film, Mraz compares portrayals of the Mexican Revolution by Fernando de Fuentes to the later movies of Emilio Fernandez and Gabriel Figueroa. He considers major stars of Golden Age cinema as gender archetypes for mexicanidad, juxtaposing the charros (hacienda cowboys) embodied by Pedro Infante, Pedro Armendariz, and Jorge Negrete with the effacing women: the mother, Indian, and shrew as played by Sara Garcia, Dolores del Rio, and Maria Felix. Mraz also analyzes the leading comedians of the Mexican screen, representations of the 1968 student revolt, and depictions of Frida Kahlo in films made by Paul Leduc and Julie Taymor. Filled with more than fifty illustrations, Looking for Mexico is an exuberant plunge into Mexico's national identity, its visual culture, and the connections between the two.
      • Review: "Mraz's book constitutes a significant step in our understanding of Mexican photography in the twentieth-century Mexican landscape. The sections on contemporary photographers, from Hector Garcia to Pedro Meyer and from Manuel Alvarez Bravo to the rise of photojournalism in Mexico, are particularly noteworthy." - Juan Javier Pescador, Hispanic American Historical Review "To paraphrase Octavio Paz, Mexican identity is constructed of distinct races and languages, as well as of various levels of history. Mraz's thoughtful treatment of this profound idea benefits scholars, students, and other interested readers with its near comprehensive, but necessarily abbreviated, coverage of a rich and colorful topic." - Charles Heath, H-Net Reviews "Looking for Mexico represents a significant advance in the fields of visual culture and Mexican history that should be read by all those interested in the construction of national identities in Latin America and beyond... Accessible, engaging, and innovative, Looking for Mexico will surely find a well-deserved place on many undergraduate and graduate course outlines and become a standard work on the topic." - Amelia M. Kiddle, The Latin Americanist "Mraz not only displays an encyclopedic knowledge of Mexican photography; he also proposes extremely original, insightful, and creative ways of organizing and making sense of this vast archive... Looking for Mexico is brilliantly researched, passionately argued, and beautifully written. It will become the definitive history of Mexican photography. No other available book is as broad and as informed." - Ruben Gallo, Hispanic Review "Mraz's ambitious study remains of great value in providing an overview that enables the reader to make connections across a vast terrain of photographic and cinematic practice, and will no doubt inspire further investigation into the still underdeveloped field of Latin American visual studies." - Pippa Oldfield, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies "[T]he scope, accessibility, and argument of this important book make it a great choice for use in a course on visual culture, or a more general course on modern Mexico." - John Lear, The Americas "John Mraz contributes new insights to a growing body of literature that examines the role of photography and film within the "renaissance" that emerged in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution of 1910... [T]he book is written in an easily accessible and engaging style... Looking for Mexico brings together a provocative array of images and image-makers." - Adriana Zavala, Visual Resources "No one is better qualified to present and analyze Mexico's vast visual archive than John Mraz, and he does so with great finesse. Drawing a broad arch from the daguerreotype to digitalization, he successfully links the past to the present in ways that only one as knowledgeable as he could accomplish."-Eric Zolov, author of Refried Elvis: The Rise of Mexican Counterculture "Looking for Mexico represents a significant advance in the fields of visual culture and Mexican history that should be read by all those interested in the construction of national identities in Latin America and beyond... Accessible, engaging, and innovative, Looking for Mexico will surely find a well-deserved place on many undergraduate and graduate course outlines and become a standard work on the topic." -- Amelia M.
