Gillian Wearing and Claude Cahun : behind the mask, another mask by Sarah Howgate( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated book draws together for the first time the work of French artist and writer Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and British contemporary artist Gillian Wearing (b. 1963) Although they were born almost a century apart, their work shares similar themes - gender, identity, masquerade, and performance. In 2015, Sarah Howgate traveled with Wearing to the island of Jersey, in the English Channel, where Cahun lived and worked until her death, and where her archive is housed, In examining Cahun's photographs, Wearing was struck by the remarkable parallels with her own explorations of the self-image through photography. Cahun was a contemporary of André Breton and Man Ray, but her work was rarely exhibited during her lifetime. Wearing, who has exhibited extensively and is a recipient of Britain's prestigious Turner Prize, was no stranger to Cahun's work when she made the trip to Jersey -- her 2012 self-portrait, 'Me as Cahun holding a mask of my face', is a reconstruction of Cahun's iconic 'Self-portrait' made in 1927. In this book, Howgate examines the work of both artists, investigating how their cultural, historical, political, and personal contexts have affected their interpretations of similar themes."

Disavowals : or, cancelled confessions by Claude Cahun( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Cahun (nee Lucy Schwob) was without a doubt one of the most extraordinary literary and artistic figures of the twentieth century. While her reputation as an artist of startling originality has steadily grown since her death in 1954, her achievement as one of the leading avant-garde writers of her generation has been largely overlooked in the English-speaking world, primarily due to the lack of adequate English translations. First published in 1930 in a limited edition of only 500 copies, Disavowals is now seen as her key literary work and a lost masterpiece of surrealist literature. It is now made available to an English-speaking public for the first time." "In an extensive commentary, leading authorities introduce the work and explore how Cahun's mysterious and poetic writings relate to the photomontages created to accompany them, reproduced here from the original glass-plate negatives."--BOOK JACKET

Des textes desquels se dégage une image de la femme insolite, parfois féroce, où se déplacent les inclinations sexuelles dans une sorte d'autoportrait
Inverted odysseys : Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman by Lynn Gumpert( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman were born in different countries, in different generations - Cahun in France in 1894, Deren in Russia in 1917, and Sherman in the United States in 1954. Yet they share a deeply theatrical obsession that shatters any notion of a unified self. All three try out identities from different social classes and geographic environments, extend their temporal range into the past and future, and transform themselves into heroes and villains, mythological creatures, and sex goddesses. The premise of Inverted Odysseys is that this expanded concept of the self - this playful urge to "try on" other roles - is more than a feminist or psychological issue. It is central to our global culture, to our definition of human identity in a world where the individual exists in a multicultural and multemporal environment. This book is an "odyssey" through historical, theoretical, critical, and literary perspectives on the three artists viewed in the context of these issues."--Jacket

Claude Cahun by Claude Cahun( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les photographies de Claude Cahun (1894-1954), aujourd'hui l'objet d'un véritable engouement, sont restées quasiment inconnues jusqu'au début des années 80.¦Sa vie, son ouvre (littéraire et artistique) font de Claude Cahun un être d'exception, en marge par rapport aux ordres dominants (sexuels, sociaux.), à une époque d'exploration avant-gardiste intense et de bouleversement des mours - notamment en ce qui concerne l'émancipation des femmes. Parmi toutes les ouvres de Claude Cahun, qui a commencé à pratiquer la photographie à l'âge de quinze ans, ce sont sans doute ses autoportraits qui ont suscité le plus d'intérêt.¦L'artiste se sert de sa propre image pour démonter un à un les clichés associés à l'identité. Claude Cahun s'est réinventée à travers la photographie (comme à travers l'écriture), en posant pour l'objectif avec un sens aigu de la performance, habillée en femme, en homme, cheveux longs ou crâne rasé (chose des plus incongrues pour une femme de l'époque. L'exposition (140 ouvres environ et divers documents) et l'ouvrage qui l'accompagne proposent plusieurs axes de lecture qui vont de ses autoportraits évoquant une identité subversive jusqu'à ses métaphores érotiques ou ses incursions dans le champ politique

Frauen der 1920er Jahre Glamour, Stil, Avantgarde by Thomas Bleitner( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bald gibt es wieder "20er-Jahre", doch falls die auch zu "Roaring Twenties", "Années Folles", "Goldenen Zwanzigern" werden, wird das wegen anderer Themen sein als 100 Jahre zuvor. Da ging es um ungeahnte neue Freiheiten für Frauen, um Jazz und Charleston, um überbordende, rebellische Lebensfeier in den Metropolen. Nachzulesen in 18 Porträts von Ausnahmefrauen, Idolen ihrer Zeit, durchgehend illustriert mit markanten Fotos. Über einige wie Zelda Fitzgerald, Coco Chanel, Josephine Baker oder Amelia Earhart gibt es bereits reichlich Literatur, andere, wie Nancy Cunard, Claude Cahun, Lavinia Schulz oder Suzanne Lenglen, dürften weniger bekannt sein. Nach der Weltwirtschaftskrise 1929 endete ein wildes Jahrzehnt, die Enge der 1930er-Jahre liess es zu Geschichte werden. Der Autor (Jahrgang 1966) veröffentlichte bereits den lokal viel beachteten Titel "Hamburgerinnen, die lesen, sind gefährlich" (2011; hier nicht besprochen), sein neuer Bildband bedient die Sehnsucht nach Vorbildern, Mut, Gröe︢, Extravaganz, Bewegtheit und Lebenslust, die der aktuelle feministisch-buchhalterische Diskurs nicht befriedigt.
