Painting the town( Visual )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1937 Yosl, a 17-year-old Polish Jew, arrived in Melbourne where he joined his sister Ruth, a dancer, and his father Melech Ravich. A leading Yiddish writer, Ravich had journeyed to Australia to search for a new homeland for Jews fleeing anti-Semitism and fascism in Europe. But Australia in the late 1930s was still suffering the effects of economic depression. Unemployment was widespread and few people had been left unscathed by the disenchantment of the decade. Jim Wigley and Albert Tucker, who appear in Painting the town, tell of a school of painters committed to representing their experience of this era. Their group, which included artists Noel Couniham, Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Joy Hester, Danila Vassilieff and John Perceval, learned much from Yosl Bergner who, in spite of his youth, became an inspirational figure in this circle. Drawing their themes and images from the modern world, these painters were pre-occupied with the horror, waste and dispossession of the years in which the world drifted from depression into war. Yosl painted both from memories of Warsaw, his home city, and from experience of a new land, Australia. Together with his paintings of refugees, ghettos and the destruction of Europe, he exhibited works depicting the sufferings of Australian Aboriginals, for Yosl saw their plight and that of his own people, the Jews, as one. The story of Bergner and his work is the story of a movement which gave birth to an Australian city art, a movement which battled to create a new Australian identity in the face of cultural isolation and a conservative pastoralist artistic tradition. Yosl Bergner, Ruth Bergner, Jim Wigley and Albert Tucker bring the richness of their experience to Painting the town. Their anecdotes and reflections combine with archival film and significant art works of the period to tell an important and vibrant story; a story in which history makes paintings and paintings make history
Megalomedia by Bruce Petty( Visual )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those familiar with cartoonist Bruce Petty's award winning film Leisure will enjoy the same sharp wit brought to bear on another institution, the media. This three-part film is a satirical enquiry into the origins of media, their distribution and their effects on the way we behave. The first part provides a brief history of print, radio, television and film. The second part proposes that a market-placed media produces the problem of monopolisation leading to mediocrity. Finally, Petty produces a caricature of the way ideas form in the mind from reading print, as distinct from passive looking and listening
