Death of the Artist

Art World Dissidents and Their Alternative Identities

Author: Nicola McCartney

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 1786734729

Category: Art

There exists a series of contemporary artists who continually defy the traditional role of the artist/author, including Art & Language, Guerrilla Girls, Bob and Roberta Smith, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and Lucky PDF. In Death of the Artist, Nicola McCartney explores their work and uses previously unpublished interviews to provoke a vital and nuanced discussion about contemporary artistic authorship. How do emerging artists navigate intellectual property or work collectively and share the recognition? How might a pseudonym aid 'artivism'? Most strikingly, she demonstrates how an alternative identity can challenge the art market and is symptomatic of greater cultural and political rebellion. As such, this book exposes the art world's financially incentivised infrastructures, but also examines how they might be reshaped from within. In an age of cuts to arts funding and forced self-promotion, this offers an important analysis of the pressing need for the artistic community to construct new ways to reinvent itself and incite fresh responses to its work.

Encyclopedia of Gender in Media

The media strongly influences our everyday notions of gender roles and our concepts of gender identity. The Encyclopedia of Gender in Media critically examines the role of the media in enabling, facilitating, or challenging the social construction of gender in our society. The work addresses a variety of entertainment and news content in print and electronic media and explores the social construction of masculinity as well as femininity. In addition to representations of gender within the media, we also analyze gender issues related to media ownership and the media workforce. Despite an abundance of textbooks, anthologies, and university press monographs on the topic of gender in media, until now no comprehensive reference work has tackled this topic of perennial interest in student research and papers. Features and benefits: 150 signed entries (each with Cross References and Further Readings) are organized in A-to-Z fashion to give students easy access to the full range of topics within gender in media. A thematic Reader's Guide in the front matter groups related entries by broad topical or thematic areas to make it easy for users to find related entries at a glance, with themes including "Discrimination & Media Effects," "Media Modes," "New Media," "Media Portrayals & Representations," "Biographies," and more. In the electronic version, the Reader's Guide combines with a detailed Index and the Cross References to provide users with robust search-and browse capacities. A Chronology in the back matter helps students put individual events into broader historical context. A Glossary provides students with concise definitions to key terms in the field. A Resource Guide to classic books, journals, and web sites (along with the Further Readings accompanying each entry) helps guide students to further resources for their research journeys. An Appendix provides users with a number of reports related to gender in media.

New Queer Cinema

The Director’s Cut

Author: B. Ruby Rich

B. Ruby Rich designated a brand new genre, the New Queer Cinema (NQC), in her groundbreaking article in the Village Voice in 1992. This movement in film and video was intensely political and aesthetically innovative, made possible by the debut of the camcorder, and driven initially by outrage over the unchecked spread of AIDS. The genre has grown to include an entire generation of queer artists, filmmakers, and activists. As a critic, curator, journalist, and scholar, Rich has been inextricably linked to the New Queer Cinema from its inception. This volume presents her new thoughts on the topic, as well as bringing together the best of her writing on the NQC. She follows this cinematic movement from its origins in the mid-1980s all the way to the present in essays and articles directed at a range of audiences, from readers of academic journals to popular glossies and weekly newspapers. She presents her insights into such NQC pioneers as Derek Jarman and Isaac Julien and investigates such celebrated films as Go Fish, Brokeback Mountain, Itty Bitty Titty Committee, and Milk. In addition to exploring less-known films and international cinemas (including Latin American and French films and videos), she documents the more recent incarnations of the NQC on screen, on the web, and in art galleries.

"Ein Bericht für eine Akademie" ist eine Erzählung von Franz Kafka. Nach der Erstveröffentlichung 1917 in der Zeitschrift "Der Jude" erschien sie 1920 im Rahmen des Bandes "Ein Landarzt". Der ehemalige Affe namens Rotpeter legt einer Akademie einen Bericht über seine Menschwerdung vor, der als Geschichte einer erzwungenen Assimilation und als pädagogische Satire verstanden werden kann. Der Gegenstand des Berichts ist aber nicht, wie von der Akademie gewünscht, die Erinnerung an das äffische Vorleben, sondern die Schilderung des Anpassungsvorganges.

Dämonologie

Page: 296

Ausgehend von der Beziehung zwischen Colette Peignot und Georges Bataille, erzählt Meine Mutter: Dämonologie von den Verstrickungen einer Frau in die widersprüchlichen Impulse von Zuneigung und Einsamkeit: Zu Beginn ihres Lebens als Erwachsene gerät Laure in eine leidenschaftliche und alles verschlingende Affäre mit ihrem Gefährten B. Das lässt sie aber letztlich unbefriedigt, weil ihr die Notwendigkeit einer eigenen Identität - unabhängig von ihrem Geliebten - klar wird. Im Verlangen, zu entdecken, wer sie ist, begibt sie sich auf eine Reise der Selbstfindung: eine Odyssee in das Territorium ihrer Vergangenheit, in Erinnerungen und Phantasien ihrer Kindheit, in Zügellosigkeit und Hexerei. Kathy Acker ist eine Legende, ihre Werke sind Klassiker der postmodernen Literatur. Sie gilt immer noch als die einzig wahre Erbin William S. Burroughs. Ihre Arbeiten waren ebenso vielfältig und umfassten unterschiedlichste Textsorten. Die selbsternannte »Literaturterroristin« war der Inbegriff einer weiblich geprägten Punk-Literatur, die die Themengebiete Sexualität, Philosophie und Technologie produktiv aufnahm und in eigenständige literarische Arbeiten umwandelte. Ackers Werke, die von einer Haltung der Umschrift und der vorsätzlichen Piraterie geprägt sind, genießen zurecht Kultstatus und spiegeln Geschlechter- und Gesellschaftsverhältnisse ebenso kritisch wie unterhaltsam. Acker ist Kult.
