Surrealism and Photography in Czechoslovakia

On the Needles of Days

Surrealism and Photography in Czechoslovakia: On the Needles of Days sheds much-needed light on the location of the greatest concentration of Surrealist photography and examines the culture and tradition within which it has taken root and flourished. The volume explores a rich and important artistic output, very little of which has been seen outside of its land of origin. Based on extensive research at museums in Prague and Brno and many conversations with participants in and historians of the movement, Krzysztof Fijalkowski, Michael Richardson and Ian Walker analyse how this photographic work has developed cohesively and rigorously, from the beginnings of Czech Surrealism in 1934, to the intriguing researches of the present-day Czech and Slovak Surrealist group by way of mysterious veiled responses to the repressive contexts with which they were faced from the 1950s to the 1980s. The main chapters, ordered chronologically, are intersected with shorter texts examining specific works. The reader will find in this volume images that present challenges to our understanding of how photographic work has been used within surrealism, pinpointing individual pictures whose dynamic charge may induce instants of compelling interrogation and disruption.

September 1938 – in München treffen sich Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini und Daladier zu einer kurzfristig einberufenen Konferenz. Der Weltfrieden hängt am seidenen Faden. Im Gefolge des britischen Premierministers Chamberlain befindet sich Hugh Legat aus dem Außenministerium, der ihm als Privatsekretär zugeordnet ist. Auf der deutschen Seite gehört Paul von Hartmann aus dem Auswärtigen Amt in Berlin zum Kreis der Anwesenden. Den Zugang zur Delegation hat er sich erschlichen. Insgeheim ist er Mitglied einer Widerstandszelle gegen Hitler. Legat und von Hartmann verbindet eine Freundschaft, seit sie in Oxford gemeinsam studiert haben. Nun kreuzen sich ihre Wege wieder. Wie weit müssen sie gehen, wenn sie den drohenden Krieg verhindern wollen? Der neue Politthriller von Robert Harris – ein Roman über Hochverrat und Unbestechlichkeit, über Loyalität und Vertrauensbruch. Und wie immer bei Robert Harris lassen sich über die historischen Figuren und Ereignisse erhellende Bezüge zur aktuellen Weltpolitik herstellen.

Only Imagine

Fiction, Interpretation and Imagination

Author: Kathleen Stock

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0192519239

Category: Philosophy

Page: 256

View: 9201

Only Imagine offers a theory of fictional content or, as it is sometimes known, 'fictional truth'. The theory of fictional content Kathleen Stock argues for is known as 'extreme intentionalism'; the idea that the fictional content of a particular work is equivalent to exactly what the author of the work intended the reader to imagine. Historically, this sort of view has been highly unpopular. Literary theorists and philosophers alike have poured scorn upon it. The first half of this book attempts to argue that it should in fact be taken very seriously as an adequate account of fictional truth: better, in fact, than many of its more popular rivals. The second half explores various explanatory benefits of extreme intentionalism for other issues in the philosophy of fiction and imagination. Namely, can fiction give us reliable knowledge? Why do we 'resist' imagining certain fictions? What, in fact, is a fiction? And, how should the imagination be characterised?

Yamamoto Masao: Tori

The master of the silent moment trains his lens on his lifelong obsession: birds As a small boy growing up in the Japanese countryside, photographer Masao Yamamoto enjoyed looking up at the sky. From his classroom window, he would gaze at the windblown clouds, mesmerized by airborne creatures such as birds, butterflies and winged insects. He sometimes dreamed of riding on the back of a bird and flying away to faraway places. Yamamoto's career as a photographer began in 1993. One of Japan's most important living photographers, Yamamoto has taken many different approaches to photography over the past 20 years. But what has remained constant is the artist's belief that humans are just a small part of nature, united with it and part of it. Throughout his career, Yamamoto has often returned to animals, particularly birds, as a subject, reflecting his childhood fascination with the creatures and his eternal commitment to the unity of humanity and nature. With Tori, the photographer departs on yet another artistic journey, with a new series of quietly moving animal images (torimeans "bird" in Japanese). Yamamoto asks himself, and his viewers: What do we see, and what do we identify with, in birds? Yamamoto Masao (born 1957) trained as an oil painter before turning to photography. His portraits, landscapes and still lifes are silver prints that are delicately toned and sometimes overpainted/dyed. Among his previous publications is Small Things in Silence (RM/Seigensha, 2015). In the US, Yamamoto is represented by the Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, Jackson Fine Arts in Atlanta, Craig Krull Gallery in Los Angeles and the Etherton Gallery in Tucson, among others.

Cloud studies

Clouds are fleeting entities - studying them so as to correctly classify, name and read their forms was considered in the 19th and early 20th centuries an important step in coming to understand the secrets of the atmosphere. In its early stages photography offered scientists completely new ways of depicting clouds. They used cameras to make precise, lifelike images, which provided in turn insights into the interaction of clouds and the atmosphere. Helmut Völter's Cloud Studies presents six different stations of scientific cloud photography, from its beginnings in the 1880s to the images made by the first weather satellites in the 1960s. Each of the six chapters represents a very different scientific and photographic perspective of clouds.

Musik stellt heute soziale Beziehungen her, die kein Eigentum mehr verlangen. Aber sie kann trotzdem nicht systemunabhängig agieren, ohne selbst Teil einer kapitalen Verwertungslogik zu sein. Dieser unauflösbare Konflikt ist die Basslinie für einen Mix, den Andrzej Steinbach und Achim Szepanski in Ultrablack of Music: Feindliche Übernahme vorlegen. Steinbach montiert drei unterschiedliche Texte: Eine TV-Talkshow als Kammerspiel, eine Namensliste aller RAF-Mitglieder in Form einer Partitur und einen Computercode einer zerhackten McKinsey Werbung. 1971 hatte der WDR die Sendung "Ende offen: Pop und Co - die andere Musik zwischen Protest und Kommerz!" ausgestrahlt, bei der Nikel Pallat, Mitglied der Band Ton Steine Scherben, eine Axt unter seiner Jacke hervorholte und mehrmals mit voller Kraft auf den Tisch einschlug. Er ging dabei nicht kaputt, aber die Geste war unmissverständlich.
