  • Art and Animalsby Giovanni Aloi

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 14.95

    ?Art is continually haunted by the animal,? wrote Deleuze and Guattari. Over the past two decades, animals have quite literally invaded the gallery space, from Joseph Beuy?s co-habiting with a coyote, Janis Kounelli?s instillation of live horses, Damien Hirst?s shark in formaldehyde to Mark Dion?s natural history displays and Marco Evaristti?s ?goldfish... more...

  • Art of Deathby Nigel Llewellyn

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 22.95

    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... more...

  • The Art of the Bodyby Michael Squire

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 14.95

    The art of the human body is arguably the most important and wide-ranging legacy bequeathed to us by Classical antiquity. Not only has it directed the course of western image-making, it has shaped our collective cultural imaginary - as ideal, antitype, and point of departure. This book is the first concerted attempt to grapple with that legacy: it... more...

  • Artist Animalby Steve Baker

    University of Minnesota Press 2013; US$ 90.00

    Animals have always been compelling subjects for artists, but the rise of animal advocacy and posthumanist thought has prompted a reconsideration of the relationship between artist and animal. In this book, Steve Baker examines the work of contemporary artists who directly confront questions of animal life, treating animals not for their aesthetic... more...

  • Black Artists in British Artby Eddie Chambers

    I.B.Tauris 2014; US$ 14.95

    Black artists have been making major contributions to the British art scene for decades, since at least the middle of the 20th century. Sometimes, these artists - with backgrounds in the countries of Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia - were regarded and embraced as British practitioners of note and merit. At other times, particularly during the... more...

  • Christian Artby Beth Williamson

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 9.99

    Christian images have a long history within the Western art tradition from the narrative and devotional works of the Medieval and Renaissance periods, to the radical new interpretations of the twenty-first century. This fascinating new book explores the changing nature of the representation of key themes and subjects found in Christian art, covering... more...

  • Das Antlitz der Agonieby Silke Kurth

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2009; US$ 59.17

    Medusa, Prometheus, Tityos und Marsyas gelten seit der Antike als Inbegriff mangelnden Respekts gegenüber den Göttern und darauf unerbittlich folgender Bestrafung. In allen vier Mythen geht es um ein explizites Machtgefälle und die gewaltsame Wiederherstellung verletzter Autorität, um grausame Körperstrafen, die auf die Zerstörung physischer, Identität... more...

  • Depicting Canada's Childrenby Loren Lerner

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2009; US$ 27.95

    Depicting Canada's Children is a critical analysis of the visual representation of Canadian children from the seventeenth century to the present. Recognizing the importance of methodological diversity, these essays discuss understandings of children and childhood derived from depictions across a wide range of media and contexts. But rather than... more...

  • Der Hirsch: Popularisierung und Individualisierung eines Motivsby Silke Krohn

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2008; US$ 23.86

    Der Hirsch ist das Tiermotiv, das in der abendländischen Kultur nicht nur am häufigsten dargestellt wurde, es ist auch eines der am frühesten dargestellten Motive und beinhaltet zahlreiche Bedeutungen, die sich bis in die Ursprünge menschlicher Kultur zurückverfolgen lassen. Heute wird das Motiv häufig auf den "Röhrenden Hirsch" über dem... more...
