Ghost in the shell : photography and the human soul, 1850-2000 : essays on camera portraiture by Robert A Sobieszek ( Book )
12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In "'Tolerances of the Human Face': The Affectless Surfaces of Andy Warhol," the author places Warhol's photo-silkscreened portraits in the modern contexts of social and anthropological classification and the symbolism of fame, but suggests that physiognomy has not been entirely silenced. Finally, "'Abstract Machines of Faciality': The Dramaturgical Identities of Cindy Sherman" explores the theatrical aspects of portraiture, tracing a continuum that links Sherman's work to the demonstrations of hysteria staged by the nineteenth-century French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, Surrealist masks, performance art, and the use of schizophrenia and multiple selves as metaphors for the postmodern human condition."

Ports of entry : William S. Burroughs and the arts by Robert A Sobieszek ( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William S. Burroughs, the Beat iconoclast turned cultural icon, has been practicing a postmodern voodoo alchemy, via his cut-up and fold-in techniques, that accurately reflects our fragmented, discontinuous experience of a universe that is fluid, undetermined, tangential, and absurd. His novels, once banned and condemned, have over the years earned him membership in the American Academy and Institute for Arts and Letters and the title Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. Now Robert A. Sobieszek, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's curator of photography, demonstrates how Burroughs's creative practice extends to and permeates most of the arts, how his work has paralleled and in some cases anticipated significant developments in painting, assemblage, music, sculpture, video, and film. Sobieszek discusses and offers illustrations of Burroughs's extensive body of visual art - including his collages, photomontages, sculptural assemblages, shotgunned paintings, and text-image works - as well as the work of artists with whom Burroughs has either collaborated or had an affinity, including Brion Gysin, Keith Haring, Philip Taaffe, and Robert Rauschenberg
