Stattdessen sollten wir akzeptieren, daß letzterer sich auf zwei verschiedene Arten von Eigenschaften bezieht: die... more...

  • Symptom of Beautyby Francette Pacteau

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 16.00

    For a woman in the Western world, there is no escaping beauty. Either she possesses it, or she lacks it. If she lacks it, she may hope to gain it. If she already has it, she will certainly lose it. But what is "it"? Not an objective thing, Francette Pacteau tells us, but a generic term for an unspecifiable number of psychological experiences in the... more...

  • Ruins and Fragmentsby Robert Harbison

    Reaktion Books 2015; US$ 35.00

    What is it about ruins that are so alluring, so puzzling, that they can hold some of us in endless wonder over the half-erased story they tell? In this elegant book, Robert Harbison explores the captivating hold these remains and broken pieces?from architecture, art, and literature?have on us. Why are we, he asks, so suspicious of things that are... more...

  • Landscape Theoryby Rachel DeLue; James Elkins

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 36.95

    Artistic representations of landscape are studied widely in areas ranging from art history to geography to sociology, yet there has been little consensus about how to understand the relationship between landscape and art.

  • Feminist Art and the Maternalby Andrea Liss

    University of Minnesota Press 2009; US$ 75.00

    Feminist motherhood is a surprisingly unexplored subject. In fact, feminism and motherhood have been often thought of as incompatible. Profound, provocative, and innovative, Feminist Art and the Maternal is the first work to critically examine the dilemmas and promises of representing feminist motherhood in contemporary art and visual culture. Andrea... more...

  • Bürger, Gott und Götterschützlingby Sabine Schlegelmilch

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 210.00

    Portrayals of children became increasingly common in Greek literature and art during the Hellenistic period. It has long been thought that the reasons for this lie in the alienation of the Greeks as a result of the collapse of the polis and its structures, which was then compensated for by a concentration on private subjects. A review of recent... more...
