Alexander Kluge (born 1932) is a German filmmaker, author, television producer, theorist, and digital entrepreneur. Since 1960, he has made fourteen feature films and twenty short films and has written more than thirty books - including three with Marxist philosopher Oskar Negt. His television production company has released more than 3,000 features, in which Kluge converses with real or fictional experts or creates thematic montages. He also maintains a website on which he reassembles segments from his film and television work. To call Kluge ´´prolific´´ would be an understatement. This is the first English-language monograph devoted to the full scope of Kluge´s work, from his appearance on the cultural scene in the 1960s to his contributions to New German Cinema in the 1970s and early 1980s to his recent collaborations with such artists as Gerhard Richter.

Glittering Images (eBook, ePUB)
14,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

WIth full-color illustrations throughout From the best-selling author of Sexual Personae and Break, Blow, Burn and one of our most acclaimed cultural critics, here is an enthralling journey through Western art´s defining moments, from the ancient Egyptian tomb of Queen Nefertari to George Lucas´s volcano planet duel in Revenge of the Sith. America´s premier intellectual provocateur returns to the subject that brought her fame, the great themes of Western art. Passionately argued, brilliantly written, and filled with Paglia´s trademark audacity, Glittering Images takes us on a tour through more than two dozen seminal images, some famous and some obscure or unknown-paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art that have defined and transformed our visual world. She combines close analysis with background information that situates each artist and image within its historical context-from the stone idols of the Cyclades to an elegant French rococo interior to Jackson Pollock´s abstract Green Silver to Renée Cox´s daring performance piece Chillin´ with Liberty. And in a stunning conclusion, she declares that the avant-garde tradition is dead and that digital pioneer George Lucas is the world´s greatest living artist. Written with energy, erudition, and wit, Glittering Images is destined to change the way we think about our high-tech visual environment. From the Hardcover edition.

Cultural Equivalence Principle in the Translati...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

For literary translation, the key point of the translator should be how to reproduce the vivid image (character, situation and event) of the original work in order to achieve the goal of preserving the original work´s artistic charm. This requires the translator to translate with a mission to positively take the culture elements into consideration and try to convey the cultural characteristics and artistic beauty of the original work. Here are the concrete examples taken from the practice of the Engligh-Chinese translation of Miroslav Penkov´s novel collection East of the West, guided by the cultural equivalence principle, and followed with in-depth discussions, reflections, and suggestions.

Aesthetics and the Revolutionary City
102,99 € *

This book explores alternative ways of understanding Havana both as an imagined political construct and as a cultural product. It provides a vision of how and why we see the city as we do and evaluates the ways in which images of Havana have been (mis)constructed in the global imaginary. Bringing out interactions and tensions between real and imaginary spaces, it examines the political implications of unique spatial and metaphorical representations of the city and explores the crucial role that image-makers and cultural producers have played in the global perception of Havana through photography, material culture and documentary film.

The Enemy in Contemporary Film
83,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While filmic representations of ´enemies´ are legion, film studies have so far neglected the way in which filmic mediations of enemy images have contributed to shaping cultural memories. The present volume investigates the (de)(re)constructions of enemy images in international film since the 1970s. The three parts deal with (re)configurations of the enemy in contemporary global cinemas, analysing films on the two world wars, on regional military conflicts, ethnic, racial and gender conflicts, socio-political conflicts and forms of terrorism. The essays concentrate on film aesthetics and contemporary (geo)politics, on filmic renderings of identity crises caused by troubled national pasts, and on the way films explore the collective psychological mechanisms at play in the construction, perpetuation or problematizing of enemy images. The volume aims to show how in spite of the diversity of national cinemas, moving images are constitutive of national collectivities by rendering conflicts involving an external or internal enemy as the defining points in national or communal histories. It also points out how the dynamics of internalism and exteriority (of ´we´ and ´they´) has proved vital in this process.

Der Bürger erhebt seine Stimme

Der seit zwei Jahrhunderten aktive Düsseldorfer Musikverein hat durch seine Beteiligung an den Niederrheinischen Musikfesten und seinen Einfluss auf die städtische Kulturpolitik das musikalische Leben der Stadt nachhaltig geprägt. Die Betrachtung seines Wirkens erlaubt Rückschlüsse auf das kulturelle Selbstverständnis der vereinstragenden bürgerlichen Schicht und zeigt ausgehend von Programmgestaltung, Organisationsstruktur und der Interaktion mit Berufsmusikern exemplarisch, wie sich Vertreter der bürgerlichen Musikkultur im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert auf dem zunehmend professionalisierten Musikmarkt positioniert haben. The Musikverein (´´Music Association´´) at Duesseldorf has been active for 200 years. Due to its participation in the Lower Rhenish Music Festivals, and its influence on the cultural and educational municipal policy the Musikverein left an enduring mark on the musical life of the city. Analysing its activities draws conclusions from the cultural self-image of the bourgeois classes which supported the association. Concepts of programs of concerts, organisational structure, and interaction with professional musicians, stand for a change. Members of the civil musical culture had to find a new position in an increasing, and even more and more professionalized musical market in between the 19th and the 20th century.
