Foucault against himself( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 857 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 )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 854 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
Images in spite of all : four photographs from Auschwitz by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

40 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 725 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
Fra Angelico : dissemblance & figuration by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 697 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
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 644 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

L'image ouverte : motifs de l'incarnation dans les arts visuels by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in French and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre interroge les relations anthropologiques cruciales que les images entretiennent avec le corps et la chair, au-delà des notions usuelles d'anthropomorphisme ou de représentation figurative. Y sont analysées les diverses façons dont les images visent la chair, que ce soit la chair d'Aphrodite formée de l'écume ou celle du Christ sacrifiée sur la croix. Paganisme et christianisme, chacun avec ses propres cadres de pensée, auront, en effet, tous deux cherché à atteindre, voire à transgresser, les limites de l'imitation : là où les métaphores deviennent métamorphoses, là où les signes qui représentent deviennent des symptômes qui incarnent. On découvrira cette puissance extraordinaire des corps lorsqu'en eux la chair vise l'image, par exemple dans la stigmatisation de saint François au XIIIe siècle, les crucifiements des Convulsionnaires de Saint-Médard au XVIIIe siècle ou les ±clous¿ hystériques de la Salpêtrière au XIXe siècle. Une traversée impressionnante d'images qui ne sont pas faites pour décorer, simuler ou consoler, mais pour agir, nous bouleverser et nous donner accès à quelque chose comme une profondeur.--

The Cube and the face : around a sculpture by Alberto Giacometti by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 159 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
