  • After the Silentsby Michael Slowik

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 29.99

    Many believe Max Steiner?s score for King Kong (1933) was the first important attempt at integrating background music into sound film, but a closer look at the industry?s early sound era (1926–1934) reveals a more extended and fascinating story. Viewing more than two hundred films from the period, Michael Slowik launches the first comprehensive study... more...

  • On Slownessby Lutz Koepnick

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 34.99

    Speed is an obvious facet of contemporary society, whereas slowness has often been dismissed as conservative and antimodern.

As he engages... more...

  • Stealing All Transmissionsby Randal Doane; Barry "the Baker" Auguste

    PM Press 2014; US$ 9.99

    Stealing All Transmissions is a love story. It?s the story of how the Clash fell in love with America and how America loved them back.

This history situates the Clash amid the cultural... more...

  • Szene ohne Theaterby Heiner Wilharm

    transcript Verlag 2014; US$ 52.00

    The scene is omnipresent. It originated in the theater, but we know and experience it as the political, public, private, profane, and sacred scene as well. Away from the stages of art, media, and entertainment, staging takes place. In a historically and systematically sweeping »extended scenography« that integrates design and compositional thought... more...

  • Auftritteby Ulf Otto; Jens Roselt; Annemarie Matzke

    transcript Verlag 2014; US$ 45.00

    Ob Theaterbühne oder Internet, ob Parlament oder Castingshow: Auftritte sind kulturelle Praktiken - sie ermöglichen Vorgänge des Sich-Zeigens und Wahrnehmens. Der Auftritt ist ein exemplarischer Akt des In-Erscheinung-Tretens, bei dem das instabile Verhältnis von Akteuren und Zuschauern ausgehandelt wird. Doch obwohl die Inszenierungen der Künste,... more...
