"As the art world eagerly embraces a journalistic approach, Aesthetic Journalism explores why contemporary art exhibitions often consist of interviews, documentaries and reportage. This new mode of journalism is grasping more and more space in modern culture and Cramerotti probes the current merge of art with the sphere of investigative journalism. The attempt to map this field, here defined as 'Aesthetic Journalism', challenges, with clear language, the definitions of both art and journalism, and addresses a new mode of information from the point of view of the reader and viewer. The book explores how the production of truth has shifted from the domain of the news media to that of art and aestheticism. With examples and theories from within the contemporary art and journalistic-scape, the book questions the very foundations of journalism. Aesthetic Journalism suggests future developments of this new relationship between art and documentary journalism, offering itself as a useful tool to audiences, scholars, producers and critics alike." --Résumé de l'éditeur.

The Violence of the Image

Photography and International Conflict

Author: Liam Kennedy,Caitlin Patrick

Publisher: I.B.Tauris

ISBN: 0857735748

Category: Social Science

Page: 288

Photography has visualized international relations and conflicts from the midnineteenth century onwards and continues to be an important medium in framing the worlds of distant, suffering others. Although photojournalism has been challenged in recent decades, claims that it is dead are premature. The Violence of the Image examines the roles of image producers and the functions of photographic imagery in the documentation of wars, violent conflicts and human rights issues; tackling controversial ideas such as ‘witnessing’, the making of appeals based on displays of human suffering and the much-cited concept of ‘compassion fatigue’. In the twenty-first century, the advent of digital photography, camera phones and socialmedia platforms has altered the relationship between photographers, the medium and the audience- as well as contributing to an ongoing blurring of the boundaries between news and entertainment and professional and amateur journalism. The Violence of the Image explores how new vernacular and artistic modes of photographic production articulate international friction. This innovative, timely book makes a major contribution to discussions about the power of the image in conflict.

Increasingly, academic communities transcend national boundaries. “Collaboration between researchers across space is clearly increasing, as well as being increasingly sought after,” noted the online magazine Inside Higher Ed in a recent article about research in the social sciences and humanities. Even for those scholars who don't work directly with international colleagues, staying up-to-date and relevant requires keeping up with international currents of thought in one's field. But when one's colleagues span the globe, it's not always easy to keep track of who's who—or what kind of research they're conducting. That's where Intellect's new series comes in. A set of worldwide guides to leading academics—and their work—across the arts and humanities, Who's Who in Research features comprehensive profiles of scholars in the areas of cultural studies, film studies, media studies, performing arts, and visual arts. Who's Who in Research: Performing Arts includes concise yet detailed listings include each academic's name, institution, biography, and current research interests, as well as bibliographic information and a list of articles published in Intellect journals. The volumes in the Who's Who in Research series will be updated each year, providing the most current information on the foremost thinkers in academia and making them an invaluable resource for scholars, hiring committees, academic libraries, and would-be collaborators across the arts and humanities.

Digital Prohibition

Piracy and Authorship in New Media Art

Author: Carolyn Guertin

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

ISBN: 1441166432

Category: Social Science

Page: 304

View: 9940

The act of creation requires us to remix existing cultural content and yet recent sweeping changes to copyright laws have criminalized the creative act as a violation of corporate rights in a commodified world. Copyright was originally designed to protect publishers, not authors, and has now gained a stranglehold on our ability to transport, read, write, teach and publish digital materials. Contrasting Western models with issues of piracy as practiced in Asia, Digital Prohibition explores the concept of authorship as a capitalist institution and posits the Marxist idea of the multitude (Á la Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt, and Paulo Virno) as a new collaborative model for creation in the digital age. Looking at how digital culture has transformed unitary authorship from its book-bound parameters into a collective and dispersed endeavor, Dr. Guertin examines process-based forms as diverse as blogs, Facebook, Twitter, performance art, immersive environments, smart mobs, hacktivism, tactical media, machinima, generative computer games (like Spore and The Sims) and augmented reality.

The Creative Edges of Photography and Film

Publisher: Intellect Books

ISBN: 1841505625

Taking as its starting point the notion of photocinema—or the interplay of the still and moving image—the photographs, interviews, and critical essays in this volume explore the ways in which the two media converge and diverge, expanding the boundaries of each in interesting and unexpected ways. The book's innovative approach to film and photography produces what might be termed a hybrid “third space,” where the whole becomes much more than the sum of its individual parts, encouraging viewers to expand their perceptions to begin to understand the bigger picture. The latest edition in Intellect's Critical Photography series, Photocinema represents a nuanced theoretical and practical exploration of the experimental cinematic techniques exemplified by artists like Wim Wenders and Hollis Frampton. In addition to new critical essays by Victor Burgin and David Campany, the book includes interviews with Martin Parr, Hannah Starkey, and Aaron Schumann, and a portfolio of photographs from various new and established artists.

Symbolist Journals

A Culture of Correspondence

Author: Pamela Antonia Genova

Publisher: Ashgate Pub Limited


Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 352

Made famous by poets such as Stéphane Mallarmé, Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud, the Symbolist movement is one of the most analysed of literary schools. The many journals which it inspired, however, have often been overlooked by critics, though infact they represent a crucial forum for cultural exchange and for multifaceted artistic expression.Pamela Genova explores in detail the intellectual concerns, aesthetic significance and interdisciplinary dialogue which lie at the heart of such Symbolist reviews as La Revue Indépendante, Le Décadent, La Revue Blanche and Le Mercure de France. Beginning with an examination of the evolution and development of Symbolist thought and criticism in the second half of the nineteenth century, Genova moves on to discuss the history of the Symbolist journal and its culmination in la guerre des petites revues.Along with poetry, two additional art forms in particular preoccupied Symbolist journalism: painting and music. The latter chapters of the book centre on the relationship, often antagonistic, between poetry and these other arts. Genova analyses the Symbolist interest in artists such as Edouard Manet, the English Pre-Raphaelites and Gustave Moreau. In the realm of music, Richard Wagner proved a powerful figure for the Symbolist poets and critics, provoking widespread debate on the importance of myth and legend in art.The wide ranging discussion of artistic ideas is one of the aspects of the Symbolist journals which gives them such vital cultural significance in the context of a rapidly changing society. In the pages of these reviews, Genova argues, today's reader can unearth an 'other' nineteenth century; one where writers could test their experimental theories, and the greater artistic freedom offered them enabled fresh and exciting correspondences among the arts to emerge.

The Rhetoric of Empire

Colonial Discourse in Journalism, Travel Writing, and Imperial Administration

Author: David Spurr

Publisher: Duke University Press

ISBN: 9780822313175

Page: 212

The white man's burden, darkest Africa, the seduction of the primitive: such phrases were widespread in the language Western empires used to talk about their colonial enterprises. How this language itself served imperial purposes--and how it survives today in writing about the Third World--are the subject of David Spurr's book, a revealing account of the rhetorical strategies that have defined Western thinking about the non-Western world. Despite historical differences among British, French, and American versions of colonialism, their rhetoric had much in common. The Rhetoric of Empire identifies these shared features—images, figures of speech, and characteristic lines of argument—and explores them in a wide variety of sources. A former correspondent for the United Press International, the author is equally at home with journalism or critical theory, travel writing or official documents, and his discussion is remarkably comprehensive. Ranging from T. E. Lawrence and Isak Dineson to Hemingway and Naipaul, from Time and the New Yorker to the National Geographic and Le Monde, from journalists such as Didion and Sontag to colonial administrators such as Frederick Lugard and Albert Sarraut, this analysis suggests the degree to which certain rhetorical tactics penetrate the popular as well as official colonial and postcolonial discourse. Finally, Spurr considers the question: Can the language itself—and with it, Western forms of interpretation--be freed of the exercise of colonial power? This ambitious book is an answer of sorts. By exposing the rhetoric of empire, Spurr begins to loosen its hold over discourse about—and between—different cultures.

Narrative Means to Journalistic Ends

A Narratological Analysis of Selected Journalistic Reportages

Author: Nora Berning

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9783531926995

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 158

View: 5064

Nora Berning grasps the narrative potential of journalistic reportages via a set of narratological categories. Spurred by an interdisciplinary framework, she builds on transgeneric narratological research and shows that journalistic reportages can be described, analyzed, and charted with categories that originate in structuralist narratology. The author spells out minimal criteria for particular types of reportages, and challenges the argument that journalism and literature have distinct, non-overlapping communicative goals. By showing that the reportage is a hybrid text type that seeks to inform, educate, and entertain, this study advances a re-conceptualization of journalism and literature as two fields with permeable borders.

Unmapping the City

Perspectives of Flatness

Author: Alfredo Cramerotti

Publisher: Intellect Books

ISBN: 1841503169

Category: Photography

Page: 78

View: 4990

Unmapping the City, the first title in the new Intellect series Critical Photography, features photographs shot between 2004 and 2008 in different cities around the world. The images are linked by their shared attempts to define a two-dimensional approach to a three-dimensional built reality, and to address spatial representation, ritual, and urbanity through art. In representing the cityscape through a flat texture of lines and bold colors, the reader is drawn into a conversation about the interplay between reality and its representation. This volume significantly challenges and expands the critical discourse on photography and text and will be of interest to artists, curators, photographers, architects, and critical theorists.
