This is the third of three text books, published in association with the Open University, which offer an innovatory exploration of art and visual culture. Through carefully chosen themes and topics rather than through a general survey, the volumes approach the process of looking at works of art in terms of their audiences, functions and cross-cultural contexts. While focused on painting, sculpture and architecture, it also explores a wide range of visual culture in a variety of media and methods. "1850-2010: Modernity to Globalisation" includes essays which engage directly with topical issues around art and gender, globalisation, cultural difference and curating, as well as explorations of key canonical artists and movements and of some less well-documented work of contemporary artists.

Key topics, including "Baroque Rome", "Dutch Painting of the Golden Age", "Georgian London", the "Paris Salon", and the impact of the discovery of the South Pacific.

A History of Visual Culture is a history of ideas. The recent explosion of interest in visual culture suggests the phenomenon is very recent. But visual culture has a history. Knowledge began to be systematically grounded in observation and display from the Enlightenment. Since them, from the age of industrialization and colonialism to today's globalized world, visual culture has continued to shape our ways of thinking and of interpreting the world. Carefully structured to cover a wide history and geography, A History of Visual Culture is divided into themed sections: Revolt and Revolution; Science and Empiricism; Gaze and Spectacle; Acquisition, Display, and Desire; Conquest, Colonialism, and Globalization; Image and Reality; Media and Visual Technologies. Each section presents a carefully selected range of case studies from across the last 250 years, designed to illustrate how all kinds of visual media have shaped our technology, aesthetics, politics and culture.

From couture fashion to opulent perfumes and decadent food, the luxury goods and services industry has grown at an unprecedented rate even in the context of a global recession. But in contemporary digital culture does luxury still reside in material things, or rather the look of things? In this first study of luxury through the lens of visual culture, Armitage argues that luxury is undergoing a shift from material culture to the immaterial culture of the visual, offering new forms of luxury engagement and unparalleled levels of pleasure never before offered to the senses. Calling for a new understanding of luxury in the changing visual landscape of contemporary society, Luxury and Visual Culture embraces an extraordinary range of cultural forms, including fashion, photography, social media, television, and art. From the masterpieces of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, to Richard Avedon's photography and Louis Vuitton's Flagship stores, the book explores key issues of globalization, digitization, consumer identity, “mass” luxury, and the role of art. This text is ideal for all students of contemporary luxury studies, as well as scholars and researchers in the field of visual culture.

Capital Karma

"Capital & Karma constitutes the largest presentation of contemporary Indian art and culture ever to,be displayed in the Germanspeaking realm.

In the past decade India's cities have been caught in the grip of an enormous push towards globalisation. This abrupt internationalization of capital, consumption, and media has also effected changes in the contexts of Indian contemporary art. Global television stations, commercials, the Internet, video, and computer games are becoming important points of reference. The relationships between world and nation, individual and community, politics, economy, and culture are being redefined. The artists participating in "Capital & Karma confront these changes with varying strategies, transferring in this way the media surfaces of "Indian" and "Western" elements into a globalized context of symbols. Essays by Indian and international authors address the conflicting effects of the new flows of capital in art, popular culture, politics, and urban development, as well as in Indian cinema and other forms of mass media. "Capital & Karma constitutes the largest presentation of contemporary Indian art and culture ever to,be displayed in the Germanspeaking realm.

Tiré du site Internet de Marsilio: "Wind und Wetter sind atmosphärische Gegebenheiten, denen wir uns ausgesetzt sehen. Sie wurden seit jeher als besondere Naturkräfte eingestuft, vor denen es sich zu schützen galt, die aber ebenso zu nutzen waren und die im Laufe der Frühen Neuzeit auch Gegenstand der Naturwissenschaft wurden. Die meteorologischen Phänomene wurden beschrieben, visualisiert und zunehmend analysiert, wobei Kunst und Wissenschaft eigenständige Wege beschritten, die doch miteinander vernetzt waren. Gegenstand der in dem vorliegenden Band versammelten Beiträge sind die Konzeptualisierung von Wind und Wetter in Topoi und Metaphern, epistemische Zugriffe in den Feldern von Geographie und Meteorologie und nicht zuletzt in der bildenden Kunst. Folgende Fragestellungen stehen im Fokus : die Metaphorik von Wind und Wetter seit der Antike ; Interferenzen der historischen Klimaforschung und ihrer medialen Aufbereitung in Bild und Text, ebenso Interferenzen von historischen Forschungsergebnissen und der zeitgleich zu konstatierenden Funktionalisierung von natürlichen Atmosphären zur Darstellung psychischer Gestimmtheiten; Darstellungsprobleme von Blitz und Donner (Phänomene, an denen sich seit Plinius' Historia naturalis die Künstler zu beweisen haben), und nicht zuletzt die ästhetische und erkenntnistheoretische Kategorie der Transparenz, an der sich Theoreme der Bildwissenschaft erproben lassen."

The growth of Shanghai in the late nineteenth century gave rise to an exciting new art world in which a flourishing market in popular art became a highly visible part of the treaty port's commercialized culture. Art Worlds examines the relationship between the city's visual artists and their urban audiences. Through a discussion of images ranging from fashionable painted fans to lithograph-illustrated magazines, the book explores how popular art intersected with broader cultural trends. It also investigates the multiple roles played by the modern Chinese artist as image-maker, entrepreneur, celebrity and urban sojourner. Focusing on industrially produced images, mass advertisements and other hitherto neglected sources, the book offers a new interpretation of late Qing visual culture at a watershed moment in the history of modern Chinese art.Art Worlds will be of interest to scholars of art history and to anyone with an interest in the cultural history of modern China.

Black Milk

Black Milk is the first in-depth analysis of the visual archives that effloresced around slavery in Brazil and North America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In its latter stages the book also explores the ways in which the museum cultures of North America and Brazil have constructed slavery over the last hundred years. These institutional legacies emerge as startlingly different from each other at almost every level. Working through comparative close readings of a myriad art objects - including prints, photographs, oil paintings, watercolours, sculptures, ceramics, and a host of ephemera - Black Milk celebrates just how radically alternative Brazilian artistic responses to Atlantic slavery were. Despite its longevity and vastness, Brazilian slavery as a cultural phenomenon has remained hugely neglected, in both academic and popular studies, particularly when compared to North American slavery. Consequently much of Black Milk is devoted to uncovering, celebrating, and explaining the hidden treasury of visual material generated by artists working in Brazil when they came to record and imaginatively reconstruct their slave inheritance. There are painters of genius (most significantly Jean Baptiste Debret), printmakers (discussion is focussed on Angelo Agostini the 'Brazilian Daumier') and some of the greatest photographers of the nineteenth century, lead by Augusto Stahl. The radical alterity of the Brazilian materials is revealed by comparing them at every stage with a series of related but fascinatingly and often shockingly dissimilar North American works of art. Black Milk is a mould-breaking study, a bold comparative analysis of the visual arts and archives generated by slavery within the two biggest and most important slave holding nations of the Atlantic Diaspora.

This substantially revised and expanded second edition offers several new features, including: an updated and expanded timeline and bibliography; inclusion of more recent trends and perspectives in design; a larger section on contemporary design; and more discussion of designed artifacts in relation to interior's rather than as stand alone 'objects, ' to promote discussion of lifestyles and the experience of design by users. -- Book Jacket.
