  • Szenen der Gewaltby Reinhold Görling

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 35.00

    Torture and other forms of extreme violence threaten the ascertainable intermediate spaces of media in which the subject negotiates the respective differences between sensation and community, autonomy and language, binding and trauma, and obsession and distance. Reinhold Görling shows that because the history of (the phantasms of) torture is a history... more...

  • Handel, Handlung, Verhandlungby Urs Urban; Beatrice Schuchardt

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 56.00

    Dem Theater der Frühen Neuzeit ist ein spezifisch ökonomisches Wissen eingeschrieben - lange bevor dieses in den Volkswirtschaftslehren zur großen Erzählung gerinnt. Das gilt in besonderer Weise für Spanien, wo das Theater seine erste Blüte zur selben Zeit erlebt, in der die Frühphase der Globalisierung einsetzt und die Nation zur Weltmacht aufsteigt.... more...

    Der »Cremaster Cycle« von Matthew Barney erweist sich in der Ausstellungssituation als ein medial hybrides Konstrukt aus Filmen, Objekten, Fotos und Zeichnungen. Erst im Wandern des Blicks zwischen der Diachronie der Film-Narration und der Synchronie der Ausstellungssituation entsteht der Cycle - der Betrachter selbst vollendet das Werk mit seinem... more...

  • Fractal Narrativeby German A. Duarte

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 63.00

    Fractals suggest recursivity, infinity and the repetition of a principle of order. They are digital pictures of the universe's continuous movement ignored by mankind during millennia. This book investigates the relationship existing between geometries and technology, and how it guided cognitive processes and thus the organization of narrative spaces.... more...

  • Plastic Realityby Julie A. Turnock

    Columbia University Press 2014;

    Julie A. Turnock tracks the use and evolution of special effects in 1970s filmmaking, a development as revolutionary to film as the form?s transition to sound in the 1920s. Beginning with the classical studio era?s early approaches to special effects, she follows the industry?s slow build toward the significant advances of the late 1960s and early... more...
