  • Installation and the Moving Imageby Catherine Elwes

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 25.99

    Film and video have a double nature; they create an illusory world, a reality elsewhere and a material presence that both dramatises and demystifies the magic trick of moving pictures. Since the 1960s, artists have systematically explored filmic and televisual phenomena in the controlled environments of galleries and museums, drawing on multiple antecedents... more...

  • Arts of Independenceby Alan Riach; Alexander Moffat

    Luath Press Ltd 2014; US$ 14.95

    Arts of Independence takes a hard look at the most neglected aspect of the argument for Scotland's distinctive national identity: the arts.

  • Bilder, Kulturen, Identitätenby Stephanie Geise; Katharina Lobinger

    Herbert von Halem Verlag 2014; US$ 26.21
