TRENCH ART: MATERIALITIES AND MEMORIES OF WAR
BERG PUBLISHERS, 2003

Resumen del libro

Trench art is the evocative name given to a dazzling array of objects made from the waste of industrialized war. Each object, whether an engraved shell case, cigarette lighter or a pen made from shrapnel, tells a unique and moving story about its maker. For the first time, this book explores in-depth the history and cultura l importance behind these ambiguous art forms. Not only do they symbolize human responses to the atrocities of war, but they also act as mediators between soldiers and civilians, individuals and industrial society, and, most importantly, between the living and the dead. Trench art resonates most obviously with the terror of endless bombardment, night raids, gas attacks and the bestial nature of trench life. It grew in popularity between 1919 and 1939 when the bereaved embarked on battlefield pilgrimages and returned with objects intended to keep alive the memory of loved ones. The term trench art is, however, misleading, as it does not simply refer to materials found in the trenches. It describes a diverse range of objects that have in some way emerged from the experience of war all over the world. Many distinctive objects, for example, were made during conflicts in Bosnia, Vietnam, Northern Ireland and Korea. Surprisingly, trench art predates World War I and it can be made in a number of earlier wars such as the Crimean War, the American Civil War, and the Boer War. Saunders looks at the broader issues of what is meant by trench art, what it was before the trenches and how it fits in with other art movements, as well as the specific materials used in making it. He suggests that it can be seen as a bridge between the nineteenth century certainties and the fragmented industrialized values and ideals of the modern world. This long overdue study offers an original and informative look at one of the most arresting forms of art. Spanning from 1800 to the present day, its analysis of art, human experience, and warfare will pave the way for new research and will be of great interest to cultural and military historians, anthropologists, art historians and collectors. ...

LES DANSEUSES SACREES D'ANGKOR
SEUIL, 2002

Resumen del libro

De la magnificence d’Angkor, l’ancienne capitale de l’Empire khmer, il ne reste pas seulement les plus beaux temples d’Extrême-Orient, vertigineuses cathédrales surgissant de la jungle tropicale. Un art sacré, la danse, a survécu à l’effondrement de l’Empire au XVe siè cle, à la colonisation et même au génocide khmer rouge. Cet art aurait disparu s’il ne touchait pas à l’identité même du Cambodge. Il est l’âme d’un peuple. Grâce à l’obstination des quelques survivants, les Apsaras, ces fameuses danseuses célestes sculptées sur les murs d’Angkor Vat, sont à nouveau les intermédiaires entre les dieux, le roi et le peuple khmer. La fille aînée du roi Norodom Sihanouk, la princesse Buppha Devi, était danseuse étoile dans les années 1960. Elle est aujourd’hui ministre de la Culture du royaume. Sous sa direction, le Ballet royal a retrouvé sa splendeur d’antan. Pendant quatorze ans, le photographe Christophe Loviny a suivi cette résurrection. Il est revenu chaque année s’installer pendant quelques semaines, quelques mois, dans l’unique village encore habité au c?ur de cette cité perdue que les dieux-rois khmers façonnèrent dans le grès. Finalement, grâce à l’aide de la princesse Buppha Devi, il a pu photographier les parties les plus importantes du répertoire dans le lieu même où officiaient les ancêtres des Apsaras. Des statues de pierre aux ballerines du Ballet royal contemporain, la danse sacrée est le fil conducteur pour découvrir non seulement Angkor mais aussi comprendre un pays dont le seul nom évoque une danseuse. L’auteur a retrouvé d’extraordinaires photos inédites des temples ensevelis sous la jungle ainsi que des dessins peu connus d’Auguste Rodin et de George Groslier. Etayé par les textes des plus grands spécialistes khmers, français et américains - Suppy ... Leer resumen completo

ANCIENT PUEBLO SOUTHWEST
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2003

Resumen del libro

Ancient Puebloan Southwest traces the evolution of Puebloan society in the American Southwest from the emergence of the Chaco and Mimbres traditions in the AD 1000s through the early decades of contact with the Spanish in the sixteenth century. The book focuses on the social and political changes that shaped Puebloan people over the centuries, emphasizing how factors internal to society impacted on cultural evolution, even in the face of the challenging environment that characterizes the American Southwest. The underlying argument is that while the physical environment both provides opportunities and sets limitations to social and political change, even more important evolutionary forces are the tensions between co-operation and competition for status and leadership. Although relying primarily on archaeological data, the book also includes oral histories, historical accounts, and ethnographic records as it introduces readers to the deep history of the Puebloan Southwest. ...

TRIBES OF THE IROQUOIS CONFEDERACY
OSPREY PUBLISHING, 2003

The Five (later Six) Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy were central to the story of the white colonization of the American Northeast.

Sir William Johnson's efforts in the Mohawk Valley en sured that the Iroquois Nations were allies of the British crown; and the loyalty of his kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) during the American Revolution forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile. This richly illustrated book introduces Iroquois history, social organization, religion and material culture. ... Leer resumen completo

NEW TENDENCIES IN MEXICAN ART: THE 1990 S
PALGRAVE MACMILLAN, 2003

Resumen del libro

The decade of the 1990s was one of the most turbulent periods in recent Mexican history marked by political assassinations, the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, the signing of NAFTA, a catastrophic economic crisis, and the defeat of the PRI after seventy years of one-party rule. How did art respond to these events? To answer this question, Gallo examines some of the most radical artistic experiments produced in this period, from Daniela Rossell's photographs of Mexican millionaires to Teresa Margolles's manipulations of human remains, from Santiago Sierra's controversial work with human subjects to Vicente Razo's creation of a Salinas museum. ...

GAUCHOS

H.F. ULLMANN, 2001

Resumen del libro

Aldo Sessa took four years to bring this hugely impressive photographic, artistic and documentary book to reality. During this time, he visited every province, travelled 40,000 kilometres and took 50,000 photographs. The Gaucho so captivated Sessa that he can now be considered an expert on authentic Gaucho culture. His phot ographs show that Argentina is a marvellous country and the Gaucho an exceptional person. We will consider ourselves well compensated if, through this record, our fellow citizens discover that the Gaucho exists, in flesh and blood, and performs as the Argentine archetype. People from other lands will have a document through which they can witness the existence of these special people; "The Gauchos". ... Leer resumen completo

CONSIDER THE LOBSTER

Resumen del libro

Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humour? What is John Updike's deal anyway? And who won the Adult Video News' Female Performer of the Year Award the same year Gwyneth Paltrow won her Oscar? David Foster Wallace answers these questions and more in his new book of hilarious non-fiction. For this col lection, David Foster Wallace immerses himself in the three-ring circus that is the presidential race in order to document one of the most vicious campaigns in recent history. Later he strolls from booth to booth at a lobster festival in Maine and risks life and limb to get to the bottom of the lobster question. Then he wheedles his way into an L.A. radio studio, armed with tubs of chicken, to get the behind-the-scenes view of a conservative talkshow featuring a host with an unnatural penchant for clothing that only looks good on the radio. In what is sure to be a much-talked-about exploration of distinctly modern subjects, one of the sharpest minds of our time delves into some of life's most delicious topics. ... Leer resumen completo
