  • Contemporary Perspectives on Art and International Developmentby Polly Stupples; Katerina Teaiwa

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Visual artists, craftspeople, musicians, and performers have been supported by the development community for at least twenty years, yet there has been little grounded and critical research into the practices and politics of that support. This new Routledge book remedies that omission and brings together varied perspectives from artists, policy-makers,... more...

  • Posters for the Peopleby Ennis Carter

    Quirk Books 2017; US$ 50.00

    This lavishly illustrated volume amasses nearly 500 of the best and most striking posters designed by artists working in the 1930s and early 1940s for the government-sponsored Works Progress Administration, or WPA. Posters for the People presents these works for what they truly are: highly accomplished and powerful examples of American art. All are... more...

  • Sabotage Artby Sophie Halart; Mara Pologovsky Ezcurra

    I.B.Tauris 2016; US$ 29.00

    Sabotage is the deliberate disruption of a dominant system, be it political, military or economic. Yet in recent decades, sabotage has also become an artistic strategy – most notably in Latin America. In Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Chile and Argentina, artists are producing radical, unruly or even iconoclastic work that resists state violence, social... more...

  • Antiquitiesby Maxwell L. Anderson

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 10.99

    The destruction of ancient monuments by the Taliban and the Islamic State have shocked observers worldwide. Art historian Maxwell Anderson's Antiquities: What Everyone Needs to Know® analyzes continuing threats to our heritage as well as a balanced account of treaties and laws, collections past and present, forgeries, and other controversial issues.... more...

  • Looking Beyond Borderlinesby Lee Rodney

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    American territorial borders have undergone significant and unparalleled changes in the last decade. They serve as a powerful and emotionally charged locus for American national identity that correlates with the historical idea of the frontier. But the concept of the frontier, so central to American identity throughout modern history, has all but... more...

  • Enfants du mondeby Françoise Caillette-Deneubourg

    Primento Digital Publishing 2017; US$ 14.99

    Publié en partenariat avec l'association "Solidarité laïque". Avec 100 portraits d’enfants de tous les horizons, l’infatigable voyageuse Françoise Caillette-Deneubourg illustre la très mal connue « Déclaration des droits de l’enfant » adoptée par l’Assemblée générale de l’ONU en novembre 1959. Où il est démontré par l’image que ceux qui représentent... more...

  • The Politics of Contemporary Art Biennialsby Panos Kompatsiaris

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Contemporary art biennials are sites of prestige, innovation and experimentation, where the category of art is meant to be in perpetual motion, rearranged and redefined, opening itself to the world and its contradictions. They are sites of a seemingly peaceful cohabitation between the elitist and the popular, where the likes of Jeff Koons encounter... more...

  • The Gamin de Paris in Nineteenth-Century Visual Cultureby Marilyn R. Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 150.00

    The revolutionary boy at the barricades was memorably envisioned in Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People (1830) and Victor Hugo’s novel Les Misérables (1862). Over the course of the nineteenth century, images of the Paris urchin entered the collective social imaginary as cultural and psychic sites of memory, whether in avant-garde... more...

  • Monstersby Derrick Jensen

    PM Press 2017; US$ 9.99

    Monsters is an illustrated collection of wild, weird, and whimsical tales with a twist. These stories are not about mythical creatures; here, the creatures speak for themselves. There's an orc who hates Tolkien, a young demon awash in teenage angst, an angel abandoned by Jesus who finds the Fates. Jensen creates a world both delicately dreamlike... more...

  • András Visky’s Barrack Dramaturgy: Memories of the Bodyby Jozefina Komporaly

    Intellect Books Ltd 2017; US$ 32.19

    Widely considered one of the most innovative voices in Hungarian theater, András Visky has enjoyed growing audiences and increased critical acclaim over the last fifteen years. Nonetheless, his plays have yet to reach a wider English-language audience. This volume, edited by Jozefina Komporaly, begins to correct this by bringing together a translated... more...
