Images des Sports in Österreich
€ 45.00 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sport hat seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in Österreich eine enorme gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Bedeutung. Die damit verbundenen Werte und Normen werden primär bildhaft vermittelt. Daher nimmt dieser Band zentrale Images und Topoi der Bewegungskultur in den Fokus. Durch starke Emotionen haben sich viele dieser Bilder in die kollektive Erinnerung des Landes eingeschrieben. Das Buch beleuchtet ihre aktuelle und vergangenheitspolitische Bedeutung, die immer wieder aufs Neue verhandelt werden muss. In den Beiträgen entsteht ein selektives und doch inklusives Gesamtbild des modernen österreichischen Sportgeschehens und seiner Populärkulturen von den Anfängen vor 1900 bis in die Gegenwart. Since the end of the 19th century sports are of great social and cultural importance in Austria. The values and ethics related to sports are primarily conveyed via images. Thus, this volume focuses on central images and topoi of sports. Due to their strong emotions these images have found their way into the collective memory of the country. This book illustrates their recent and past political meaning which has to be repeatedly negotiated. The contributions show a selective but yet inclusive presentation of the modern Austrian sports culture and its popular cultures from the beginning before 1900 until recent years.

Art, Trade, and Cultural Mediation in Asia, 160...
€ 52.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This Palgrave Pivot explores the social and cultural impact of global trade at a micro-level from around 1600 to 1950. Bringing together the collaborative skills of cultural, social, economic, and art historians, it examines how the diffusion of trade, goods and objects affected people´s everyday lives. The authors tell several stories: of the role played by a host of intermediaries - such as apothecaries, artisans and missionaries who facilitated the process; of objects such as Japanese export lacquer-ware and paintings; of how diverse artistic influences came to be expressed in colonial church architecture in the Philippines; of revolutionary changes wrought on quotidian tastes and preferences, as shown in the interior decoration of private homes in the Dutch East Indies; and of transformations in the smoking and drinking habits of Southeast Asians. The chapters consider the conditions from which emerged new forms of artistic production and transfer, fresh cultural interpretations, and expanded markets for goods, objects and images.

Black Fire! New Spirits!: Images of a Revolutio...
€ 32.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

At the start of the 1960s, jazz entered a unique new period of revolution as African-American musicians redefined the art form in the context of the civil rights movement, afro-centric rhythm and thought and an ideology of black economic empowerment. John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler and others developed a new cosmology of sound that was as revolutionary as the social and political changes that took place in America throughout the decade. From the musical explorations of John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor and Ornette Coleman, to the collective and community concerns of Chicagos Advancement for Creative Musicians and the black science fiction of Sun Ra, the new jazz musicians created a musical and cultural landscape from which jazz music never looked back. This large-format deluxe hardback book features hundreds of stunning photographs of the new jazz musicians in the USA throughout the 1960s presented with introductory essay and biographies on the many artists included in the book.

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 â??Perceiving and Understanding: Functions, Perception Processes, Forms of Visualizations, Cultural Strategies of Pictures and Textsâ? at the University of Regensburg.

McQueen´s Motorcycles
€ 20.99 *
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.
