Citizen Kane by Laura Mulvey( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Citizen Kane's unchallenged reputation as one of the greatest films in all cinema is matched only by the accumulation of critical commentary that surrounds it. What more can there be to say about a masterpiece so universally acknowledged? As Laura Mulvey shows in a fresh and original reading, the richness of the film, both thematically and stylistically, is inexhaustible. In a lucid and perceptive critique she investigates the psychoanalytic structure that underlines the film's presentation of Kane's biography, for once taking seriously what Orson Welles himself disparagingly referred to as "dollar-book Freud". She also illuminates the film's historical context, revealing it to be a prescient commentary on the isolationist politics of prewar America."--Global Books in Print
Jimmie Durham by Laura Mulvey( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and German and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Jimmie Durham (b. 1940) is an internationally acclaimed artist, writer and poet of Cherokee descent. His intricate sculptures and installations mimic the attributes of human beings and animals, and the ways they make or are made into history. Durham collages discarded objects and fragments of organic matter, transforming them with dazzling colour into startling, anthropomorphic configurations. His sculptures, wall-based collages and ersatz ethnographic displays deliver ironic assaults on the colonizing procedures of Western culture. An activist in the American Indian movement during the 1970s, he has also published poetry, fiction and critical theory. Featured at Documenta IX (1992), his work has also been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Ghent and Brussels museums of art and the ICA, London. The Survey by British film and art critic Laura Mulvey, author of 'Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema' and other influential essays, explores themes of history and language, space and time in Durham's work. Belgian curator Dirk Snauwaert talks with the artist about his multi-faceted practice. Mark Alice Durant, US performance artist and writer, analyses Durham's diary of Shakespeare's Caliban. Durham has selected texts by Italo Calvino about the loss of speach and the poetry of the invisible. The Artist's Writings include essays, poems and a screenplay published here for the first time.""--Publisher's description

Citizen Kane by Laura Mulvey( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Citizen Kane's reputation as one of the greatest films of all time is matched only by the accumulation of critical commentary that surrounds it. What more can there be to say about a masterpiece so universally acknowledged? Laura Mulvey, in a fresh and original reading, illuminates the richness of the film, both thematically and stylistically, relating it to Welles's political background and its historical context. In a lucid and perceptive critique she also investigates the psychoanalytic structure that underlies the film's presentation of Kane's biography, for once taking seriously what Orson Welles himself disparagingly referred to as 'dollar-book Freud.' In her foreword to this special edition, published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BFI Film Classics series, Laura Mulvey focuses on the film's politics, highlighting the contemporary 'rhymes' in Kane's portrayal of a scandal-prone press baron in a time of economic crisis
Isaac Julien : riot by Isaac Julien( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Riot is an intellectual autobiography of the artist Isaac Julien, whose trail-blazing career has pushed film through the forms of documentary, biography, dance, narrative, and multiscreen installation and into the spaces of art. As such, the book is an original, firsthand account of one of the crucial aesthetic developments of the last thirty years. Riot is the first book to offer an overview of Julien's career and to set it in the context of his personal and intellectual path: the friendships, mentors, films, politics, songs, and artworks that have informed his thinking. Punk rock, urban riots, club and disco culture, the AIDS crisis, the migration of populations, the globalization of the art world -- these and much more make appearances in Riot, in chapters written by Julien with Cynthia Rose and in essays by a distinguished group of his friends and colleagues with their own perspectives on his career. The book is richly illustrated with images from Julien's work and from his personal and studio archive."--Publisher's website
Godard's Contempt : essays from the London Consortium by Colin MacCabe( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Godard's Contempt (Le Mepris) remains one of the most intriguing and critically discussed twentieth century films. An experimental film made with a Hollywood budget and a stellar cast, an adaptation of a famous novel which completely transforms the source material's themes and concerns, and the climax of the Nouvelle Vague, which also signalled its collapse, Contempt is paradoxical as well as one of the most beautiful movies ever made. The essays collected in Godard's Contempt construct a framework for a renewed set of questions and analyses of Godard's great modern classic. Drawing on work by young scholars from the London Consortium, the essays benefit from their wide range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. One of the most exciting recent experiments in graduate education, the Consortium is a partnership of five institutions: the Architectural Association, Birkbeck, University of London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Science Museum and the Tate. With an introduction by MacCabe and a post-script by Mulvey, the collection combines work from those most established of film critics with the very freshest and most varied voices"--

Other cinemas : politics, culture and experimental film in the 1970s by Sue Clayton( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Its innovations and debates have had far-reaching and long-lasting influence, with a resurgence of interest in the decade revealed by new gallery events, film screenings and social networks that recognise its achievements. Professor Laura Mulvey, and writer and director Sue Clayton, bring together journalists and scholars at the cutting edge of research into 1970s radical cinema for this collection. Chapters are at once historically grounded yet fused with the current analysis of today's generation of cine-philes, to rediscover a unique moment for extraordinary film production. Other Cinemas establishes the factors that helped to shape alternative film: world cinema and internationalism, the politics of cultural policy and arts funding, new accessible technologies, avant-garde theories, and the development of a dynamic and interactive relationship between film and its audiences.Exploring and celebrating the work of The Other Cinema, the London Film-makers' Co-op and other cornerstones of today's film culture, as well as the impact of creatives such as Stephen Dwoskin, Derek Jarman, and Sally Potter - and Mulvey and Clayton themselves - this important book takes account of a wave of socially aware film practice without which today's activist, queer, minority and feminist voices would have struggled to gather such volume

The illusionists( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Illusionists examines how global advertising firms, mass media conglomerates, and the beauty, fashion, and cosmetic surgery industries are changing the way people around the world define beauty and see themselves. Taking us from Harvard to the halls of the Louvre Museum, from a cosmetic surgeon's office in Beirut to the heart of Tokyo's Electric Town, the film explores how these industries saturate our lives with narrow, Westernized, consumer-driven images of beauty that show little to no respect for biological realities or cultural differences. Features Jean Kilbourne, Susie Orbach, Laura Mulvey, Gail Dines, Susan Linn, and other prominent sociologists, politicians, magazine editors, scientists, artists, and activists in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia
