📒 ✍ Сонтаг С.
📝 Book Synopsis : Коллекция эссе Сьюзен Сонтаг «О фотографии» впервые увидела свет в виде серии очерков, опубликованных в New York Review of Books между 1973 и 1977 годами. В книге, сделавшей ее знаменитой, Сонтаг приходит к выводу, что широкое распространение фотографии приводит к установлению между человеком и миром отношений «хронического вуайеризма», в результате чего все происходящее начинает располагаться на одном уровне и приобретает одинаковый смысл. Главный парадокс фотографии заключается, согласно Сонтаг, в том, что человек, который снимает, не может вмешаться в происходящее, и, наоборот, – если он участвует в событии, то оказывается уже не в состоянии зафиксировать его в виде фотоизображения.
📒Where Is The Photograph ✍ David Green
📝Where is the Photograph Book Synopsis : "With photography's increasing incorporation into a wide range of fine art practices and the rapid development of evermore sophisticated electronic and digital technologies, it is clear that it is now extremely difficult to say precisely where and how we are to define the boundaries that separate photography from other media. We have been forced to abandon our preconceptions about what a photograph might be or mean and to ask the more fundamental question of where, in the complex space created by contemporary technologies and representational practices, something called the photograph might be; what it might mean for us to identify it and try to relate it to the reality beyond. This collection of essays draws together a range of different historical and philosophical perspectives as a way of addressing the significant changes that have taken place in our critical and theoretical understanding of photography and the photographic over the past decade."--BOOK JACKET.

📒Educating Artists For The Future ✍ Melvin L. Alexenberg
📝Educating Artists for the Future Book Synopsis : Publisher's description: In Educating Artists for the Future, some of the world?s most innovative thinkers in higher education in art and design offer fresh directions for educating artists for a rapidly evolving post-digital future. Their creative redefinition of art at the interdisciplinary interface where scientific enquiry and new technologies shape aesthetic and cultural values offers groundbreaking guidelines for art education in an era of emerging new media. This is the first book concerned with educating artists for the post-digital age, propelling artists into unknown territory. A culturally diverse range of art educators focus on teaching their students to create artworks that explore the complex balance between cultural pride and global awareness. They demonstrate how the dynamic interplay between digital, biological, and cultural systems calls for alternative pedagogical strategies that encourage student-centered, self-regulated, participatory, interactive, and immersive learning. Educating Artists for the Future charts the diaphanous boundaries between art, science, technology, and culture that are reshaping art education.

📒Photography Between Poetry And Politics ✍ Hilde van Gelder
📝Photography Between Poetry and Politics Book Synopsis : Lieven Gevaert Series 7Does photography have a hybrid or chameleonic character because it can be part of entirely different mixed-media works of art? Photography as a medium is faced with the challenge of escaping from its too-frequent use as rather noncommittal and "poetic" visual imagery. How best might photographers proceed to maintain the integrity of their art? A distinguished group of art historians, art theorists, and specialists in contemporary photography address these issues in Photography between Poetry and Politics. They suggest that by raising a critical debate on the internal workings of the artistic system itself or on broader social problems, photographers might be able to transcend both political and aesthetic concerns, and so revitalize their art form and regain its autonomy.
📝Art Photography and the Contentions of Contemporary Art Rhetoric Practice and Reception Book Synopsis : Chapters 1 and 2 challenge Greenberg and Krauss' theoretical characterizations of photography as literary and indexical, arguing that the photographs of Stieglitz, Woodman, and Sherman demonstrate photography's multifaceted characteristics. My analysis of the artists' works allows for a reassessment of postmodern art criticism. Chapters 3 and 4 explore photography's reciprocal relationships with Conceptual Art, European--American institutional interchange, the reemergence of the painting movement, and advances in digital and print technology that made art photography a central form of contemporary art. While examining how the Conceptualists' idea-centered photographic practice paradoxically led to the reaestheticization of the deaesthetized photograph, I construct a coherent account of art photography by connecting the photographic practice of Stieglitz, Ed Ruscha, and Gursky.
📝Found Sculpture and Photography from Surrealism to Contemporary Art Book Synopsis : Taking its departure point from the 1933 surrealist photographs of ?involuntary sculptures? by Brassa?nd Dal?Found Sculpture and Photography from Surrealism to Contemporary Art offers fresh perspectives on the sculptural object by relating it to both surrealist concerns with chance and the crucial role of photography in framing the everyday. This collection of essays questions the nature of sculptural practice, looking to forms of production and reproduction that blur the boundaries between things that are made and things that are found. One of the book?s central themes is the interplay of presence and absence in sculpture, as it is highlighted, disrupted, or multiplied through photography?s indexical nature. The essays examine the surrealist three-dimensional object, its relation to and transformation through photographs, as well as the enduring legacies of such concerns for the artwork?s materiality and temporality in performance and conceptual practices from the 1960s through the present. Found Sculpture and Photography sheds new light on the shifts in status of the art object, challenging the specificity of visual practices, pursuing a radical interrogation of agency in modern and contemporary practices, and exploring the boundaries between art and everyday life.

📒Anywhere Or Not At All Philosophy Of Contemporary Art ✍ Peter Osborne
📝Anywhere or Not at All Philosophy of Contemporary Art Book Synopsis : A new reading of the philosophy of contemporary art by the author of The Politics of Time Contemporary art is the object of inflated and widely divergent claims. What kind of discourse can help us give it a critical sense? Anywhere or Not At All is a major philosophical intervention in art theory that challenges the terms of established positions through a new approach at once philosophical, historical, social and art-critical. Setting out the claim that ‘contemporary art is postconceptual art’, the book elaborates a series of conceptual constructions and interpretations of works by Navjot Altaf, the Atlas Group, Amar Kanwar, Sol LeWitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Gerhard Richter and Robert Smithson, among others. It concludes with new accounts of the institutional and existential complexities of ‘art space’ and ‘art time’. Anywhere or Not At All maps out the conceptual coordinates for an art that is both critical and contemporary in the era of global capitalism.

The works presented here take many forms, including physical archives arranged by peculiar cataloguing methods, imagined biographies of fictitious persons, collections of found and anonymous photographs, film versions of photographic albums, and photomontages composed of historical photographs. These images have a wide-ranging subject matter yet are linked by the artists shared meditation on photography and film as the quintessential media of the archive. Artists in the exhibition include Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Zoe Leonard, Ilán Lieberman, Walid Raad, Thomas Ruff, Anri Sala, Fazal Sheikh, Eyal Sivan, Lorna Simpson, and Vivan Sundaram, among others.

📒Contemporary Art About Architecture ✍ Nora Wendl
📝Contemporary Art About Architecture Book Synopsis : An important resource for scholars of contemporary art and architecture, this volume considers contemporary art that takes architecture as its subject. Concentrated on works made since 1990, Contemporary Art About Architecture: A Strange Utility is the first to take up this topic in a sustained and explicit manner and the first to advance the idea that contemporary art functions as a form of architectural history, theory, and analysis. Over the course of fourteen essays by both emerging and established scholars, this volume examines a diverse group of artists in conjunction with the vernacular, canonical, and fantastical structures engaged by their work. I? Manglano-Ovalle, Matthew Barney, Monika Sosnowska, Pipo Nguyen-duy, and Paul Pfeiffer are among those considered, as are the compelling questions of architecture's relationship to photography, the evolving legacy of Mies van der Rohe, the notion of an architectural unconscious, and the provocative concepts of the unbuilt and the unbuildable. Through a rigorous investigation of these issues, Contemporary Art About Architecture calls attention to the fact that art is now a vital form of architectural discourse. Indeed, this phenomenon is both pervasive and, in its individual incarnations, compelling - a reason to think again about the entangled histories of architecture and art.
