Art incorporated the story of contemporary art by Julian Stallabrass ( )
11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A controversial and fascinating attempt to define what is 'contemporary' about contemporary art, and the dramatic changes that have taken place in the last twenty years. Stallabrass reveals the growing inclusiveness of the contemporary art world, pointing to the greatly increased visibility for women and non-western artists, and the blurring of boundaries between art and other areas of culture. Does this modernization threaten to undermine the world of art as we know it, or is this. just another example of a global market demanding a certain product? And where are the artists in all this? - ;T

Internet art : the online clash of culture and commerce by Julian Stallabrass ( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 462 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."--BOOK JACKET

Gargantua : manufactured mass culture by Julian Stallabrass ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 294 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 )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 238 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."--BOOK JACKET

Guantanamo : if the light goes out by Edmund Clark ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 83 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 )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 33 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 32 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
