Art & visual culture, 1850-2010 : modernity to globalisation by Steve Edwards( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third of a series of text books, published in association with the Open University, which offer an innovatory exploration of art and visual culture. Through carefully chosen themes and topics rather than through a general survey, the volumes approach the process of looking at works of art in terms of their audiences, functions and cross-cultural contexts. While focused on painting, sculpture and architecture, it also explores a wide range of visual culture in a variety of media and methods. '1850-2010: Modernity to globalisation' includes essays which engage directly with topical issues around art and gender, globalisation, cultural difference and curating, as well as explorations of key canonical artists and movements and of some less well-documented work of contemporary artists. Other volumes: 1100-1600: Medieval to Renaissance; and 1600-1850: Academy to avant-garde

The fear of breathing : stories from the Syrian Revolution by Ruth Sherlock( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As thousands have been tortured, jailed, maimed or killed by the Syrian regime, The Fear of Breathing is not only a new play based entirely on verbatim reports from inside Syria itself, but is also a hard-hitting evocation of a life or death fight for freedom, experienced from the inside. To uncover these personal stories from the uprising, award-winning journalists Paul Wood and Ruth Sherlock, together with theatre director Zoe Lafferty, travelled into Syria covertly, circumventing the ban on journalists and restrictions on movement for all non-Syrians. They spoke to protesters as well as citizens who love President Bashar al-Assad and are terrified of a future without him. Featuring verbatim scenes, interviews, stories and film footage, The Fear of Breathing is a powerful and profoundly disturbing portrait of a revolution struggling to survive
