Art incorporated : the story of contemporary art by Julian Stallabrass( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary art is supposed to be a realm of freedom where artists shock, break taboos, flout generally received ideas, and switch between confronting viewers with works of great emotional profundity and jaw-dropping triviality. Away from shock tactics in the gallery, there are many unanswered questions. Who is really running the art world? What effect has America's growing political and cultural dominance had on art?" "Julian Stallabrass takes us inside the international art world to answer these and other controversial questions, and to argue that behind contemporary art's variety and apparent unpredictability lies a grim uniformity. Its mysteries are all too easily explained, its depths much shallower than they seem. Contemporary art seeks to bamboozle its viewers while being the willing slave of business and government. This book is your antidote and will change the way you see contemporary art."--Jacket
Contemporary art : a very short introduction by Julian Stallabrass( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary art has never been so popular, but what is its role today and who is controlling its future? Contemporary art is supposed to be a realm of freedom where artists shock, break taboos, flout generally received ideas, and switch between confronting viewers with works of great emotional profundity and jaw-dropping triviality. But away from shock tactics in the gallery, there are many unanswered questions. Who is really running the art world? What effect has America's growing political and cultural dominance had on art? Here Julian Stallabrass takes us inside the international art world to answer these and other controversial questions, and to argue that behind contemporary art's variety and apparent unpredictability lies a grim uniformity. Its mysteries are all too easily explained, its depths much shallower than they seem. Contemporary art seeks to bamboozle its viewers while being the willing slave of business and government.

Henry Moore by David Mitchinson( Book )

23 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 5 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the major sculptures of Henry Moore over sixty years of his highly productive life as an artist. The works chosen range from intimate figures less than 20 centimetres high to monumental pieces six metres long, from those hand-carved in stone or wood to those modeled and then cast in bronze and lead. They thus represent the whole spectrum of the work of this great sculptor, tracing his development of ideas - most notably through the themes of the
Internet art : the online clash of culture and commerce by Julian Stallabrass( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its brief history Internet art has moved from being the concern of a few brilliant amateurs to a position of prominence on the art scene. While much material art seen in conventional galleries feels disengaged with the world, caught up in weary variations of art-world concerns, Internet art is often humorous, socially aware and politically active. Accessible and jargon-free, this book explores the character of this new, dematerialised online art and the Internet's transformation into an arena for consumerism. The author, Julian Stallabrass, suggests that Net art may have radical implications for the way in which we think about art's authorship and ownership and more fundamentally, our understanding is of what is and what is not art."--Jacket
Documentary( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary has undergone a marked revival in recent art, following a long period in which it was a denigrated and unfashionable practice. This has in part been led by the exhibition of photographic and video work on political issues at 'Documenta' and numerous biennials and, since the turn of the century, issues of injustice, violence and trauma in increasing zones of conflict. Aesthetically, documentary is now one of the most prominent modes of art-making, in part assisted by the linked transformation and recuperation of photography and video by the gallery and museum world. Unsurprisingly, this development, along with the close attention paid to photojournalism and mainstream documentary-making in a time of crisis, has been accompanied by a rich strain of theoretical and historical writing on documentary

Gargantua : manufactured mass culture by Julian Stallabrass( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this brilliant polemic on visual mass culture, Julian Stallabrass argues that culture's status as a commodity is the most important thing about it. He shows how the consistent and unifying capitalist ideology of mass culture leads to an increasingly homogeneous identity among its consumers. Even in radical and marginal activities, like graffiti writing, there can be seen the tyranny of the brand name and the reduction of the individual to a cipher." "Starting with an analysis of subjects which concern specific groups - amateur photography, computer games and cyberspace - Stallabrass works out to wider aspects of the culture which affect everybody, including cars, shopping and television." "Gargantua raises profound questions about the nature and direction of mass culture. It challenges postmodern theory's attachment to subjectivity, indeterminacy and political indifference. If manufactured subjectivities are always shot through with the objective, then they may not be merely part of the colourful but meaningless postmodern smorgasbord, but an accurate reflection of our current cultural situation, and a map showing paths beyond it."--Jacket

Paris pictured by Julian Stallabrass( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This selection of images examines the growth and development of photography through the changing character of Paris in the remarkable period of 1900-1968. During these years, photography became a mass medium, with cheap reproductions appearing in the press. Technical advances made it possible to capture rapid movement and street photography flourished; some of the finest images in documentary photography were made on the streets of Paris by Atget, Brassai, Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau and Ronis, among many others. The transience of city life and the histories of Paris are brilliantly evoked in these images: from the elegiac photographs of the early twentieth century which recorded those quartiers later condemned by modernisation projects, through the Occupation, to the upheaval of the May 1968 demonstrations. With over 130 photographs and Julian Stallabrass's authoritative text, this book is an essential purchase for anyone interested in the art of photography and the city of Paris."--Jacket

Guantanamo : if the light goes out by Edmund Clark( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For eight years the American naval base at Guantanamo Bay on Cuba has been home to hundreds of men, all Muslim, all detained in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on suspicion of varying degrees of complicity or intent to carry out acts of terror against American interests. Labelled 'the worst of the worst', most of these men were guilty of nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Many fell prey to a US military policy of paying bounty money for anyone the Pakistani secret service, border guards or village leaders on both sides of the blurred Afghan-Pakistan border considered a possible or potential 'suspect', thereby becoming currency in the newly defined 'War on Terror'. Held in legal limbo for years and repeatedly interrogated, almost all have been released without charge and only a very few have been tried in the special military commissions set up for the purpose. Guantanamo: If the light goes out illustrates three experiences of home: at Guantanamo naval base, home to the American community; in the camp complex where the detainees have been held; and in the homes where former detainees, never charged with any crime, find themselves trying to rebuild lives. These notions of home are brought together in an unsettling narrative, which evokes the process of disorientation central to the Guantanamo interrogation and incarceration techniques. It also explores the legacy of disturbance such experiences have in the minds and memories of these men"--Provided by publisher

Memory of fire : images of war and the war of images( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrations include work by: Simon Norfolk, Paul Seawright, Thomas Hirschhorn, Don McCullin, Tim Page, Ashley Gilbertson, Susan Meiselas, Sebastiao Salgado, Stephanie Sinclair, and Ghaith Abdul-Ahad. This richly illustrated book is a visual, theoretical and historical resource about the photography of war, and how images are used as instruments of war. It comprises essays and interviews by prominent theorists, artists and photographers and covers the urgent issues of the depiction of war, the use of images of war by the media, various forms of censorship, the military as a PR and image-producing machine, the circulation of unofficial images and the impact of the digital mediascape. High-level critical texts about the image war and the reproduction of some of the most compelling images of war, offer readers a unique experience. Memory of Fire draws on content gathered for the 2008 Brighton Photo Biennial, curated by the book's editor Julian Stallabrass, supplemented with commissioned texts and interviews. Covering a range of twentieth-century war photography from the Russian Revolution to current wars, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan, many types of images are illustrated and analysed, from large-scale museum photography and artist installations, through photojournalism and official army propaganda, through to amateur images made by soldiers and civilians."--Page 4 of cover

Kyopo by CYJO( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In modern, spare and elegant portraiture, artist Cindy Hwang (CYJO) highlights the diversity, identity and immigration of the global KYOPO, those of Korean descent that reside outside of the Korean Peninsula, seven million strong. Mass emigration from Korea began in the mid-nineteenth century and accelerated during the Japanese colonial period, a time of foreign occupation that saw Koreans conscripted into forced labor. A second wave of emigrants fled beginning in the 1960's, and it is these emigrants and their children that KYOPO captures as the face of the modern Korean diaspora. Through her singular lens, CYJO seeks to unify these people and challenge the idea of the stereotypical Korean émigré. Yet perhaps a shared ancestry is the only thing that connects kyopo. CYJO decontextualizes her subjects to emphasize a sense of forced unity, allowing their spectrum of experience to contradict the apparent sameness of identity. Juxtaposed are the graduate student, the novelist, the human rights activist, the architect. The photographs, coupled with words from kyopo themselves, challenge the idea of a monolithic, 'authentic' Korean identity, while stimulating exploration and a renewed perception of what it means to be both Korean and a citizen of the world."--Photographer's website
