Cindy Sherman : untitled horrors by Cindy Sherman( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An in-depth look at the disturbing and abject sides of the American photo artist's oeuvre. Throughout her career, Cindy Sherman (*1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey) has been interested in the derailed and deviant sides of human nature, noticeable both in her selection of subject matter (fairytales, disasters, sex, horror, and surrealism) and in her disquieting interpretations of well-established photographic genres, such as film stills, fashion photography, and society portraiture. This richly illustrated publication seeks to highlight and acknowledge these aspects of her work based on selected examples and accompanied by texts by well-known authors, filmmakers, and artists who likewise deal with the grotesque, the uncanny, and the extraordinary in their artistic practice."--Publisher's website
Historiographische Metafiktionen Ransmayr, Sebald, Kracht, Beyer by Robin Hauenstein( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Studie {u201E}Historiographische Metafiktionen: Ransmayr, Sebald, Kracht, Beyer2 widmet sich mit dem postmodernen historischen Roman einem hoch aktuellen und international bedeutsamen Phänomen der Gegenwartsliteratur, das sich für die Thematisierung zentraler theoretischer Aspekte der literarisch-künstlerischen Postmoderne als besonders empfänglich erwiesen und vor allem im angelsächsischen Raum großer Aufmerksamkeit und Beliebtheit erfreut hat. Doch auch in der deutschsprachigen Literatur lässt sich die Tendenz zu einem historienaffinen Erzählen und einer damit einhergehenden Metaisierung beobachten. Die entstandenen Prosaformen sind von hoher ästhetischer und intellektueller Qualität und unterscheiden sich erzähltechnisch und inhaltlich grundlegend sowohl von der Nachkriegsliteratur als auch der Tradition des klassischen historischen Romans. Die Studie geht der konstatierten Bewegung nach und analysiert fünf ausgewählte Werke aus dem Bereich der histori(ographi)schen Metafi ktionen, legt deren allgemeine (geschichts-)philosophische Grundlagen und Spezifika dar. Sie orientiert sich dabei vor allem an den kontext- und kulturbezogenen, historiographietheoretischen Ansätzen innerhalb der postklassischen Narratologie und beleuchtet die inhaltliche und formale Konstruktion der narrativen, geschichtsbezogenen Repräsentationen sowie auch deren Selbstreflexion. -- From publisher's website
