Photography at the dock : essays on photographic history, institutions, and practices by Abigail Solomon-Godeau( Book )

30 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Abigail Solomon-Godeau has set as her task the examination of the politics of photographic criticism, history, and practice. Photography at the Dock is a revisionist approach to the history of photography, a critique of photographic modernism and the institutions promoting it, and a feminist exploration of the camera's role in producing (and reproducing) dominant social and sexual ideology"--Publisher description
Male trouble : a crisis in representation by Abigail Solomon-Godeau( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on feminist, psychoanalytical and critical theory, as well as art and cultural history, Solomon-Godeau proposes a radical revision of Neoclassical visual culture as it relates to the emerging bourgeois order, demonstrating how both reflect the status of women. With scholarship and wit, she challenges preconceptions as well as offering new insights to the specialist
Photography after photography : gender, genre, history by Abigail Solomon-Godeau( )

18 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting two decades of work by Abigail Solomon-Godeau, Photography after Photography is an inquiry into the circuits of power that shape photographic practice, criticism, and historiography. As the boundaries that separate photography from other forms of artistic production are increasingly fluid, Solomon-Godeau, a pioneering feminist and politically engaged critic, argues that the relationships between photography, culture, gender, and power demand renewed attention. In her analyses of the photographic production of Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Susan Meiselas, Francesca Woodman, and others, Solomon-Godeau refigures the disciplinary object of photography by considering these practices through an examination of the determinations of genre and gender as these shape the relations between photographers, their images, and their viewers. Among her subjects are the 2006 Abu Ghraib prison photographs and the Cold War-era exhibition The Family of Man, insofar as these illustrate photography's embeddedness in social relations, viewing relations, and ideological formations

Dorothea Lange : politics of seeing by Dorothea Lange( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dorothea Lange's photograph, Migrant Mother, is one of the most indelible and recognizable images of the Dust Bowl era. Lange's career stretched far beyond the Great Depression, driven throughout by her compassionate advocacy for the people and land of California. This riveting book opens with Lange's Bay Area portraits of the 1920s and '30s when her photo studio formed a hub for San Francisco's bohemian and artistic elite. It offers a generous overview of her work with the Farm Security Administration, where Lange was the only female photographer documenting the impact of the Depression and Dust Bowl on the west coast, working alongside the likes of Walker Evans, as well as her pictures of Japanese Americans forcibly displaced into internment camps following Pearl Harbor. It also includes images from her wartime shipyards series with Ansel Adams, postwar projects on the injustices of the American court system, loss of a community through the damming of the Putah Creek, and a photo series on Ireland. Accompanying these superbly reproduced images are thoughtful essays by curator Drew Johnson, critic Abigail Solomon-Godeau, and writer and curator David Campany, which offer appreciations of Lange's work as an artist and humanitarian, charting the legacy of her exceptional photographic oeuvre."
Francesca Woodman : works from the Sammlung Verbund by Francesca Woodman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph on Francesca Woodman (1958--1981), the most comprehensive to date, charts new approaches to her oeuvre. Whereas the evanescence of the female figure in the artist's photographs has often been read as an aesthetic anticipation of her suicide, the essays by publishers Gabriele Schor and Elisabeth Bronfen as well as those from Johannes Binotto, Abigail Solomon-Godeau and Beate Söntgen illustrate Woodman's passionate self-staging in the tradition of the tableau vivant. Her poetic and metaphorical use of props (mirrors, gloves, rugs etc.) and her staging in a room, where the laws of geometry seem to no longer apply, are examined in the essays. The 80 photographs in the SAMMLUNG VERBUND collection can be seen for the first time in their original size."--Publisher information
Rosemary Laing by Rosemary Laing( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking her homeland Australia as the subject of her photography, Rosemary Laing presents a spectacular vision of the country both haunted by history and alive to the present. From the airborne brides of Flight research to the carpeted forests of Groundspeed, Laing's photographic series commemorate site-specific interventions undertaken across Australia, capturing the continent in panoramas of extraordinary beauty and strangeness. With an incisive critical essay by art historian Abigail Solomon-Godeau on Laing's engagement with the politics of place and contemporary Australian culture, this volume comprehensively surveys the artist's career-long exploration of a new form of landscape photography."--Back cover

Birgit Jürgenssen by Birgit Jürgenssen( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Austrian Birgit Jürgenssen (1949–2003) was one of the most outstanding feminist avant-garde artists in the world. Starting from the liberating potential of Surrealism and in a dialogue with her generation’s discourse on social critique, beginning in the late sixties she developed a multilayered, stylistically multifaceted kind of art. The female body and its metamorphoses were the focus of her work, which predominately comprised drawing, painting, and photography. The Sammlung Verbund has made possible the first monograph on her work. This richly illustrated volume includes previously unknown pieces from the artist’s estate, provides an analysis of Jürgenssen’s autonomous stance in art history, and examines her relationship to literature, psychoanalysis, and Structuralism."
I am by Birgit Jürgenssen( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This mesmerizing collection of photography, drawing, and sculpture showcases the work of Birgit Jürgenssen, an Austrian avant-garde artist.0Birgit Jürgenssen (1949?2003), one of Austria?s leading avantgarde artists, was a strong feminist and fierce advocate for women in the arts. This volume draws on the comprehensive spectrum of Jürgenssen?s oeuvre, rooted in deconstructing stereotypical relationships. Starting in the late sixties, Jürgenssen?s early vibrant illustrations and surrealist, dreamlike photographs explored gender and societal restraints. Her hybrid human forms debunked gender codes and blurred the lines between humans, plants, and animals. This inspiring book reveals Jürgenssen?s prescient and revolutionary work and reaffirms her legacy of challenging boundaries in art and in life.00Exhibition: Kunsthalle Tübingen, Germany (10.11.2018 - 17.02.2019) / GAMeC - Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo, Italy (08.03.- 19.05.2019) / Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark (13.06. - 22.09.2019)

Renate Bertlmann : works 1969-2016 : ein subversives Politprogramm by Renate Bertlmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renate Bertlmann is among the most significant artists of the 1970s Feminist Avant-garde. Born in 1943, she lives and works in Vienna. Here, the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna presents the first comprehensive monograph of her work. The book, created in close collaboration with the artist, is published in both German and English and contains 300 illustrations from a career spanning more than five decades. Bertlmann divides her work into Pornography, Irony and Utopia, with all three areas gathered under the motto AMO EROG SUM (I love, therefore I am). Her work artfully stages the encounter of opposites: female and male, soft and hard, attraction and repulsion, eroticism and asceticism. The essays in the book provide an art historical overview of the motif of the bride, interpret Bertlmann's work in the light of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, explore themes of skin and touch, and contextualize her work within the broader history of feminism. The volume also contains an extensive interview with the artist, a biographical overview, and an illustrated chronology of her films, performances, and staged photographs"--

Balthasar Burkhard by Balthasar Burkhard( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the many facets of photographer Balthasar Burkhard (1944-2010), showing his self-invention as an artist and tracing the trajectory of the medium of photography in the later half of the twentieth century. Burkhard's work combines a sensitive understanding of the body as sculpture and the photographic image as a canvas, making him one of the pioneers in translating photography as a monumental tableau into contemporary art. This comprehensive book coalesces Burkhard's early role as a chronicler of the contemporary art of his time, especially as the main photographer for Swiss curator Harald Szeemann, his conceptual redefinition of photography together with other artists, and finally his emancipation as a photo artist. It accompanies a major retrospective organized by Museum Folkwang in Essen, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Fotostiftung Schweiz, the Museo d'arte della Svizzerra italiana in Lugano and the Balthasar Burkhard Estate in Bern.
