Shirin Neshat : la última palabra = the last word by Shirin Neshat( Book )

22 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a relatively short span of seven years, since 1998, Shirin Neshat has created an impressive and complex body of work: ten films/video installations of great historic and artistic significance, including Rapture, which has been hailed as an example of a "masterpiece" of contemporary art by philosopher and critic Arthur Danto. This books surveys each one of these audio/video installations while reflecting on the cultural context of her challenging and controversial artistic practice. If the exhibition produced by the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon (MUSAC) offers an opportunity to consider the scope and achievements of this practice, this book helps us explore the contextual framework in which Shirin Neshat's work is articulated and debated, and the vision of this artist who has transcended the artistic discourse to become a cultural phenomenon."--Jacket
Cerith Wyn Evans : visibleinvisible by Cerith Wyn Evans( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra acoge sus "chandeliers" (2003-2007), instalaciones con lámparas colgantes de distintos estilos y orígenes, donde las más variadas fuentes literarias del siglo pasado, textos filosóficos, poemas, cartas, etc. se transmiten a partir del código Morse que se transforma en luz intermitente para desplegar un espacio de significaciones "luminosas". La exposición incluye su Dreamachine (1998), inspirada en el prototipo que diseñaron Brion Gysin e Ian Sommerville, que construye un espacio donde las pulsaciones de la luz cinemática activan en el cerebro un estado cuasi-hipnótico para transmitir emociones e ideas
Youssef Nabil : I won't let you die by Youssef Nabil( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Youssef Nabil observes his life as if he were in a cinema, watching and witnessing every minute of his own movie. As a child, the realization that many of his favorite Egyptian film stars were no longer alive left him with the desire to meet all the actors he loves, before they die or before he dies. In the cinema he has created for himself, he reflects on the flamboyance and fantasies of Egyptian society and movie stars in the cosmopolitan war and pre-revolutionary years in his hometown Cairo. This era is also reflected in his technique of hand-coloring photographs which disrupts our notion of photography by evoking moments of longing, distant in time and place. In his self-portraits, he places himself in liminal scenes that linger between worldly realities and serene dreams, loneliness and fame, sex and death." "This is the first comprehensive presentation of Nabil's photographs of artists, his friends, and himself, and images staged over the past fifteen years."--Jacket
Escrito sobre el cuerpo = Written on the body by Shirin Neshat( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

INDIVIDUAL PHOTOGRAPHERS. This book explores the work of renowned artist/ photographer Shirin Neshat's work relating to the body. Throughout her extensive career, since she broke onto the international art scene in 1994 with her Women of Allah series, Shirin Neshat's work has developed around the condition of Muslim women, oscillating between a search for cultural identity and the contradictions that arise through historical immersion in the complex existence of exile. This superbly illustrated volume addresses aspects of Neshat's work in relation to the body, showing the tensions between the experience of women and the cultural meanings that are inscribed on the female body. Indeed, for Neshat and many other feminist writers and artists, the female body is a symbol and a battlefield where different rhetorical and political ideologies are discussed
Paul Pfeiffer by Paul Pfeiffer( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Candice Breitz : exposición múltiple = multiple exposure by Candice Breitz( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra repasa la producción de la artista entre los años 2000 a 2005 centrada en la vídeo-instalación. Candice Breitz aborda en su trabajo las inflexibles fisuras entre la cultura y el consumo, la experiencia y el lenguaje. Deliberada y agresivamente, re-organiza el material fílmico tomado del cine comercial, la televisión y los vídeos musicales y lo aisla de su narrativa y funciones estéticas habituales. Con estas intervenciones, no busca la crítica sino "abrir, revelar y exponer el simulacro entre la realidad y la ficción, la experiencia y el lenguaje, las identidades y los medios que la representan"
Lara Almarcegui by Lara Almarcegui( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La obra de la artista parte de la toma de conciencia de la ciudad, de sus descampados y de sus edificios como punto para reflexionar sobre la evolución de la propia urbe y los elementos que la componen. Con proyectos comprometidos como sus guías de ruinas modernas y de descampados urbanos, o sus montañas de escombros, Almarcegui lleva a la cita italiana dos propuestas relacionadas que inciden en su línea de trabajos anteriores. Una de ellas aborda el espacio físico del Pabellón de España en los Giardini, mientras que la otra investiga un terreno vacío junto a la isla de Murano

Adel Abdessemed : otchi tchiornie by Adel Abdessemed( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in French and English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adel Abdessemed (geboren in 1971) is een Algerijns hedendaags kunstenaar die in Parijs woont. De formele, bijna klassieke elegantie van zijn beeldhouwwerken botst met de woede, het kabaal en de beklemming van de actuele gebeurtenissen waarover de media verslag uitbrengen. Deze "mystieke" unie van schaduw en licht van onze beschaving opent nieuwe percepties. Als eeuwige balling zwalpend tussen Eros en Thanatos, tussen kosmos en hybris, gebruikt Abdessemed de kunstgeschiedenis als een analytisch hulpmiddel om macht en media te verkennen. Als een chirurg ausculteert hij, stelt hij een diagnose en snijdt hij in het levende vlees. Compromisloos bindt hij de strijd aan met fanatisme, militair geweld en politieke controverses. Hij ontwikkelt deze Fenomenologie van de wreedheid in blokken van pure, intense, schreeuwende gevoelens die de toeschouwer zelf nader moet bepalen en zich toe-eigenen. Deze publicatie bevat een reeks nieuwe werken die Adel Abdessemed voor het MAC's/Museum of Contemporary Arts in Le Grand-Hornu heeft gemaakt en stelt ons een Archeologie van het heden voor via de relatie tussen mens en dominantie, propaganda en actualiteit.

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hayv Kahraman by Hayv Kahraman( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The vital practice of Hayv Kahraman produces ethereal figures relating to each other in complex grounds. Their grace belies the brutal history of violence and displacement Kahraman s subjects endure, creating an oscillating effect that entices the viewer with its seductive order. The artist combines elements of Italian Renaissance painting and twelfth-century Baghdadi illuminated manuscripts to create an evocative, hybrid vocabulary. Her quietly radical shifts - where traditional Iraqi screens geometric patterns are replaced with sections of a woman's body, or a manuscript figure is presented as doll-like parts - convey the artist's developing exploration of femininity, acculturation, and abstract patterns. Essays by Martin Daughtry, Walter Mignolo, and Octavio Zaya accompany works from all series to date, where graphic patterning attests alternately to violence and to moments of agency, community, and escape
