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.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1,50, Management Center Innsbruck, language: English, abstract: Homo Sapiens is the story telling animal and for more than 100 years, it is film, more than any other medium, which has taken us on journeys on which we are temporarily drawn into a fictional story. Although the main purpose of a film is not to persuade the audience to travel to a certain place presented in a movie, location placement may stimulate the travel demand. Due to intangibility a main characteristic of services tourists are often faced with uncertainty during their decision making process. Tourism researchers provided empirical proof that movies and television series may help to reduce perceived risks, enhance familiarity and lead to a favourable image formation in consumers? minds. Epic story telling can be seen as a main characteristic that unites the film and tourism industry, which both make a living from creating experiences. Within the latter destination image is of paramount importance because it fundamentally affects tourists? decision making process in which emotions play an essential role. Films and television series are said to communicate emotions and viewers often identify themselves with the stories and places depicted in the movie. Movies can be seen as an effective marketing tool that can lead to high market penetration without the ?hard sell? impressions of usual promotional activities. Furthermore films serve as cultural ambassadors that present the uniqueness of a place. Therefore tourism organisations often go into partnership with the film industry and agree to host film crews in order to leverage the effects of film-induced tourism

Pictorial Cultures and Political Iconographies
€ 107.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The pictorial turn in the humanities and social sciences has foregrounded the political power of images and the extent to which historical, political, social, and cultural processes and practices are shaped visually. Political iconographies are taken to interpret norms of actions, support ideological formations, and enhance moral concepts. Visual rhetorics are understood as active players in the construction and contestation of the political realm and public space. The twenty-one articles by scholars from Europe and the United States explore the political function and cultural impact of images from the perspectives of Art History, American Studies, Visual Culture Studies, History, and Political Science. The contributions in particular address the complex interplay between agent and addressee in the public space as well as issues of national identity, discourses of inclusion and exclusion, and the designation of political spaces within transnational contexts. The publication is part of the interdisciplinary research initiative ´´Perceiving and Understanding: Functions, Perception Processes, Forms of Visualizations, Cultural Strategies of Pictures and Texts´´ at the University of Regensburg. ersity of Regensburg.

Darkness
€ 15.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Darkness divides opinion. Some are frightened of the dark, or at least prefer to avoid it, and there are many who dislike what it appears to stand for. Others are drawn to its strange domain, delighting in its uncertainties, lured by all the associations of folklore and legend, by the call of the mysterious and of the unknown. The history of attitudes to what we cannot quite make out, in all its physical and metaphorical manifestations, challenges the notion that the world is possible to fully comprehend. Nina Edwards explores darkness as both physical feature and cultural image, through themes of sight, blindness, consciousness, dreams, fear of the dark, night blindness, and the in-between states of dusk or fog, twilight and dawn, the point or period of obscuration and clarification. Taking readers through different historical periods, she interrogates humanity´s various attempts to harness and suppress the dark, from our early use of fire to the later discovery of electricity. She reveals how the idea of darkness pervades art, literature, religion and every aspect of our everyday language. Darkness: A Cultural History shows us how darkness has fed our imagination. Whether a shifting concept or real physical presence, it always conveys complex meaning.

McQueen´s Motorcycles
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The long-departed Steve McQueen is still the coolest man on two wheels. Even thirty years after his death, Steve McQueen remains a cultural icon. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture and his fan base spans from car lovers to racing enthusiasts to motorcycle obsessives. In his movies, McQueen´s character always had an envy-inducing motorcycle or car, but in his personal life, motorcycles were always McQueen´s first true love. McQueen´s Motorcycles focuses on the bikes that the King of Cool raced and collected. From the first Harley McQueen bought when he was an acting student in New York to the Triumph ´´desert sleds´´ and Huskys he desert raced all over California, Mexico, and Nevada, McQueen was never without a stable of two wheelers. His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, Elsinore Grand Prix, and even as a member of the 1964 ISDT team in Europe. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen maintained his body like it was a machine itself. He trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts. Later in his life, as he backed away from Hollywood, his interests turned to antique bikes and he accumulated an extensive collection, including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Triumph, Brough Superior, Cyclone, BSA, and Ace motorcycles. Today, McQueen still has the Midas touch; anything that was in the man´s possession is a hot commodity. McQueen´s classic motorcycles sell for top dollar at auctions, always at a multiple of what the same bike is worth without the McQueen pedigree. McQueen´s Motorcycles reveals these highly sought-after machines in gorgeous photography and full historical context.
