Foucault against himself( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his private life, as well as in his work and political attitudes, Michel Foucault often stood in contradiction to himself, especially when his expansive ideas collided with the institutions in which he worked. In Francois Caillat's provocative collection of essays and interviews based on his French documentary of the same name, leading contemporary critics and philosophers reframe Foucault's legacy in an effort to build new ways of thinking about his struggle against society's mechanisms of domination, demonstrating how conflict within the self lies at the heart of Foucault's life and work."--
Invention of hysteria : Charcot and the photographic iconography of the Salpêtrière by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic of French cultural studies, Georges Didi-Huberman traces the intimate and reciprocal relationship between the disciplines of psychiatry and photography in the late nineteenth century. Focusing on the immense photographic output of the Salpetriere hospital, the notorious Parisian asylum for insane and incurable women, Didi-Huberman shows the crucial role played by photography in the invention of the category of hysteria. Under the direction of the medical teacher and clinician Jean-Martin Charcot, the inmates of the Salpetriere identified as hysterics were methodically photographed, providing skeptical colleagues with visual proof of hysteria's specific form. These images, many of which appear in this book, provided the materials for the multivolume album Iconographie photographique de la Salpetriere."--Jacket
The Cube and the face : around a sculpture by Alberto Giacometti by Georges Didi-Huberman( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alberto Giacometti's 1943 Cube stands apart for many as atypical of the Swiss artist, the only abstract sculptural work in a wide œvre that otherwise had as its objective the exploration of reality. With The Cube and the Face, renowned French art historian and philosopher Georges Didi-Huberman has conducted a careful analysis of Cube, consulting the artist's sketches, etchings, texts, and other sculptural works in the years just before and after Cube was created. Cube, he finds, is indeed exceptional--a work without clear stylistic kinship to the works that came before or after it. At the same time, Didi-Huberman shows, Cube marks the transition between the artist's surrealist and realist phases and contains many elements of Giacometti's aesthetic consciousness, including his interest in dimensionality, the relation of the body to geometry, and the portrait--or what Didi-Huberman terms "abstract anthropomorphism." Drawing on Freud, Bataille, Leiris, and others whom Giacometti counted as influences, Didi-Huberman presents fans and collectors of Giacometti's art with a new approach to transitional work"--Back cover
Fra Angelico : dissemblance & figuration by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

33 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Florentine painter who took Dominican vows, Fra Angelico (1400-1455) approached his work as a largely theological project. For him, the problems of representing the unrepresentable, of portraying the divine and the spiritual, mitigated the more secular breakthroughs in imitative technique. Didi-Huberman explores Fra Angelico's solutions to these problems - his use of color to signal approaching visibility, of marble to recall Christ's tomb, of paint drippings to simulate (or stimulate) holy anointing. He shows how the painter employed emptiness, visual transformation, and displacement to give form to the mystery of faith. In the work of Fra Angelico, an alternate strain of Renaissance painting emerges to challenge rather than reinforce verisimilitude. Didi-Huberman traces this disruptive impulse through theological writings and iconographic evidence and identifies a widespread tradition in Renaissance art that ranges from Giotto's break with Byzantine image-making well into the sixteenth century. He reveals how the techniques that served this ultimately religious impulse may have anticipated the more abstract characteristics of modern art, such as color fields, paint spatterings, and the absence of color. Part of Didi-Huberman's large-scale rethinking of art theory and history, and the first of his books to appear in English translation, Fra Angelico is a fitting introduction to one of the most original and celebrated writers in the world of art history and criticism
Images in spite of all : four photographs from Auschwitz by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

44 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of one and a half million surviving photographs related to Nazi concentration camps, only four depict the actual process of mass killing perpetrated at the gas chambers. Images in Spite of All reveals that these rare photos of Auschwitz, taken clandestinely by one of the Jewish prisoners forced to help carry out the atrocities there, were made as a potent act of resistance." "Available today because they were smuggled out of the camp and into the hands of Polish resistance fighters, the photographs show a group of naked women being herded into the gas chambers and the cremation of corpses that have just been pulled out. Georges Didi-Huberman's relentless consideration of these harrowing scenes demonstrates how Holocaust testimony can shift from texts and imaginations to irrefutable images that attempt to speak the unspeakable. Including a powerful response to those who have criticized his interest in these images as voyeuristic, Didi-Huberman's eloquent reflections constitute an invaluable contribution to debates over the representability of the Holocaust and the status of archival photographs in an image-saturated world."--Jacket

Confronting images : questioning the ends of a certain history of art by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When French edition of this book appeared, it won immediate acclaim because of its far-reaching arguments about the structure of images and the histories ascribed to them by scholars and critics working in the tradition of Vasari and Panofsky. According to the author, visual representation has an "underside," in which seemingly intelligible forms lose their clarity and defy rational understanding. Art historians, he goes on to contend, have failed to engage this underside, where images harbor limits and contradictions, because their discipline is based upon the assumption that visual representation is made up of legible signs and lends itself to rational scholarly cognition epitomized in the "science of iconology." The author suggests that art historians look to Freud's concept of the "dreamwork"--Not to find a code of interpretation, but rather to think of representation as a mobile process that often involves substitution and contradiction. This book also offers brilliant, historically grounded readings of images ranging from the Shroud of Turin to Vermeer's Lacemaker
Survival of the fireflies by Georges Didi-Huberman( )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through readings of Dante, Pasolini, Walter Benjamin, and others, Didi-Huberman seeks to understand this strange, minor light; he argues that the fireflies are still out there, burning and shimmering in the dark, hidden in marginal spaces and dreams, in works of art and resistance"--

Ce que nous voyons, ce qui nous regarde by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor crea una fábula filosófica de la experiencia visual a través de dos figura emblemáticas, opuestas en un perpetuo dilema: el hombre de la visión creyente, que hace suya la palabra del evangelista frente a la tumba vacía de Cristo, y el hombre de la visión tautológica, que pretende asegurar su mirada en una certeza cerrada. Entre dos parábolas literarias tomadas de Joyce y Kafka, y ante la imagen de un gran cubo negro del escultor Tony Smith, el autor replantea la relación de la forma con la presencia, de la abstracción geométrica con el antropomorfismo, e intenta comprender mejor la dialéctica del volumen y del vacío

L'image survivante : histoire de l'art et temps des fantômes selon Aby Warburg by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in French and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autour de la notion de survivance, se pose la question d'interroger, au coeur même de son histoire, la mémoire à l'oeuvre dans les images de la culture. C'est Aby Warburg (1866-1929) qui, le premier, fit de la survivance le motif central de son approche anthropologique de l'art occidental

Atlas ou Le gai savoir inquiet by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À quiconque s'interroge sur le rôle des images dans notre connaissance de l'histoire, l'atlas Mnémosyne apparaît comme une oeuvre-phare, un véritable moment de rupture épistémologique. Composé, mais constamment démonté, remonté, par Aby Warburg entre 1924 et 1929, il ouvre un nouveau chapitre dans ce qu'on pourrait nommer, à la manière de Michel Foucault, une archéologie du savoir visuel. C'est une enquête " archéologique ", en effet, qu'il aura fallu mener pour comprendre la richesse inépuisable de cet atlas d'images qui nous fait voyager de Babylone au XXe siècle, de l'Orient à l'Occident, des astra les plus lointains (constellations d'idées) aux monstra les plus proches (pulsions viscérales), des beautés de l'art aux horreurs de l'histoire. Ce livre raconte, par un montage de " gros plans " plutôt que par un récit continu, les métamorphoses d'Atlas, ce titan condamné par les dieux de l'Olympe à ployer indéfiniment sous le poids du monde, en atlas, cette forme visuelle et synoptique de connaissance dont nous comprenons mieux, aujourd'hui

Atlas, or The anxious gay science by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aby Warburg's 'Mnemosyne Atlas' (1925-1929) is a prescient work of mixed media assemblage, made up of hundreds of images culled from antiquity to the Renaissance and arranged into startling juxtapositions. Warburg's allusive atlas sought to illuminate the pains of his final years, after he had suffered a breakdown and been institutionalized. It continues to influence contemporary artists today, including Gerhard Richter and Mark Dion. In this illustrated exploration of Warburg and his great work, Georges Didi-Huberman leaps from 'Mnemosyne Atlas' into a set of musings on the relation between suffering and knowledge in Western thought, and on the creative results of associative thinking. Deploying writing that delights in dramatic jump cuts reminiscent of Warburg's idiosyncratic juxtapositions, and drawing on a set of sources that ranges from ancient Babylon to Walter Benjamin, 'Atlas, or the Anxious Gay Science' is rich in Didi-Huberman's trademark combination of elan and insight" --Publisher's description
