    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 56.00

    Why should we take interest in that which doesn't concern us? Where does the growing concern for the private sphere originate? Artistic practices of the 1990s act within this zone of tension when they reproduce private experiences candor or even demonstrate »live«: Wolfgang Tillmans has photographed intimate scenes of his circle of friends since 1990,... more...

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 34.00

    Projektionen lösen Bilder von ihren Trägermedien und lassen sie immateriell im Raum flottieren. Diese Mobilisierung lässt die umgebende Architektur zum temporären Screen werden und integriert die Betrachter in den erweiterten Bildraum. Jenseits einer Projektionsgeometrie, die etwa aus Architektur und Kartografie geläufig ist, aber auch jenseits des... more...

These objects challenge our perception of ‘Chineseness’ and their style, content and the means of their production question accepted notions of how we perceive... more...

  • The Image of the Prophet between Ideal and Ideologyby Avinoam Shalem; Christiane Gruber
