(P/B) THE CONSPIRACY OF ART
MANIFESTOS, TEXTS, INTERVIEWS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0061

The images from Abu Ghraib are as murderous for America as those of the World Trade Center in flames. The whole West is contained in the burst of sadistic laughter of the American soldiers, as it is behind the construction of the Israeli wall. This is where the truth of these images lies. Truth, but not veracity. As virtual as the war itself, their specific violence adds to the specific violence of the war. In The Conspiracy of Art, Baudrillard questions the privilege attached to art by its practitioners. Art has lost all desire for illusi...

(P/B) GOOD ENTERTAINMENT
A DECONSTRUCTION OF THE WESTERN PASSION NARRATIVE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0416

A philosopher considers entertainment, in all its totalizing variety-infotainment, edutainment, servotainment-and traces the notion through Kant, Zen Buddhism, Heidegger, Kafka, and Rauschenberg. In Good Entertainment, Byung-Chul Han examines the notion of entertainment-its contemporary ubiquity, and its philosophical genealogy. Entertainment today, in all its totalizing variety, has an apparently infinite capacity for incorporation: infotainment, edutainment, servotainment, confrontainment. Entertainment is held up as a new paradigm, eve...

(P/B) THE CRISIS OF PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0187

The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy offers a powerful criticism of the inconsistencies of representative democracy. Described both as "the Hobbes of our age" and as "the philosophical godfather of Nazism," Carl Schmitt was a brilliant and controversial political theorist whose doctrine of political leadership and critique of liberal democratic ideals distinguish him as one of the most original contributors to modern political theory. The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy offers a powerful criticism of the inconsistencies of representati...

(P/B) THE IMAGE OF THE CITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0044

What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formulates a new criterion - imageability - and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities. The wide scope of this study leads to an original and vital method for the evaluation of city form. The architect, the planner, and certainly the c...

(P/B) SUSTAINABILITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0431

A concise and accessible examination of sustainability in a range of contemporary contexts, from economic development to government policy. The word "sustainability" has been connected to everything from a certain kind of economic development to corporate promises about improved supply sourcing. But despite the apparent ubiquity of the term, the concept of sustainability has come to mean a number of specific things. In this accessible guide to the meanings of sustainability, Kent Portney describes the evolution of the idea and examines it...

(P/B) THE TECHNOLOGICAL SINGULARITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0433

The idea of technological singularity, and what it would mean if ordinary human intelligence were enhanced or overtaken by artificial intelligence. The idea that human history is approaching a "singularity"-that ordinary humans will someday be overtaken by artificially intelligent machines or cognitively enhanced biological intelligence, or both-has moved from the realm of science fiction to serious debate. Some singularity theorists predict that if the field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to develop at its current dizzying rat...

(P/B) COMPUTING
A CONCISE HISTORY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0274

The history of computing could be told as the story of hardware and software, or the story of the Internet, or the story of "smart" hand-held devices, with subplots involving IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter. In this concise and accessible account of the invention and development of digital technology, computer historian Paul Ceruzzi offers a broader and more useful perspective. He identifies four major threads that run throughout all of computing's technological development: digitization--the coding of information, computation...

(P/B) MACHINE LEARNING
THE NEW AI
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0357

A concise overview of machine learning - computer programs that learn from data - which underlies applications that include recommendation systems, face recognition, and driverless cars. Today, machine learning underlies a range of applications we use every day, from product recommendations to voice recognition - as well as some we don't yet use everyday, including driverless cars. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatical...

(P/B) THE ORIGINALITY OF THE AVANT-GARDE & OTHER MODERNIST MYTHS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0046

Co-founder and co-editor of October magazine, a veteran of Artforum of the 1960s and early 1970s, Rosalind Krauss has presided over and shared in the major formulation of the theory of postmodernism. In this challenging collection of fifteen essays, most of which originally appeared in October, she explores the ways in which the break in style that produced postmodernism has forced a change in our various understandings of twentieth-century art, beginning with the almost mythic idea of the avant-garde. Krauss uses the analytical tools of s...

(P/B) ENERGY AND CIVILIZATION
A HISTORY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0458

A comprehensive account of how energy has shaped society throughout history, from pre-agricultural foraging societies through today's fossil fuel-driven civilization. Energy is the only universal currency; it is necessary for getting anything done. The conversion of energy on Earth ranges from terra-forming forces of plate tectonics to cumulative erosive effects of raindrops. Life on Earth depends on the photosynthetic conversion of solar energy into plant biomass. Humans have come to rely on many more energy flows-ranging from fossil fue...

(P/B) THE AGONY OF EROS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0342

Byung-Chul Han is one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, a member of the new generation of German thinkers that includes Markus Gabriel and Armen Avanessian. In The Agony of Eros, a bestseller in Germany, Han considers the threat to love and desire in today's society. For Han, love requires the courage to accept self-negation for the sake of discovering the Other. In a world of fetishized individualism and technologically mediated social interaction, it is the Other that is eradicated, not the self. In today's increasing...

(P/B) WASTE
A NEW PRIMER (VOLUME 13)
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0391

On Facebook and fake news, selfies and self-consciousness, selling our souls to the Internet, and other aspects of the digital revolution. With these engaging and provocative essays, Roberto Simanowski considers what new media has done to us. Why is digital privacy being eroded and why does society seem not to care? Why do we escape from living and loving the present into capturing, sharing and liking it? And how did we arrive at a selfie society without self-consciousness? Simanowski, who has been studying the Internet and social media s...

(H/B) PERFORMING IMAGE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0439

An examination of how artists have combined performance and moving image for decades, anticipating our changing relation to images in the internet era. In Performing Image, Isobel Harbison examines how artists have combined performance and moving image in their work since the 1960s, and how this work anticipates our changing relations to images since the advent of smart phones and the spread of online prosumerism. Over this period, artists have used a variety of DIY modes of self-imaging and circulation - from home video to social media -...

(H/B) THE ADVENTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0356

Agamben charts a journey that ranges from poems of chivalry to philosophy, from Yvain to Hegel, from Beatrice to Heidegger. An ancient legend identifies Demon, Chance, Love, and Necessity as the four gods who preside over the birth of every human being. We must all pay tribute to these deities and should not try to elude or dupe them. To accept them, Giorgio Agamben suggests, is to live one's life as an adventure - not in the trivial sense of the term, with lightness and disenchantment, but with the understanding that adventure, as a spec...

(P/B) NIHILISM
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0412

An examination of the meaning of meaninglessness: why it matters that nothing matters. When someone is labeled a nihilist, it's not usually meant as a compliment. Most of us associate nihilism with destructiveness and violence. Nihilism means, literally, "an ideology of nothing. " Is nihilism, then, believing in nothing? Or is it the belief that life is nothing? Or the belief that the beliefs we have amount to nothing? If we can learn to recognize the many varieties of nihilism, Nolen Gertz writes, then we can learn to distinguish what is...

(P/B) THE PARALLAX VIEW
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0182

The Parallax View is Slavoj Zizek's most substantial theoretical work to appear in many years; Zizek himself describes it as his magnum opus. Parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an object, caused by a change in observational position. Zizek is interested in the "parallax gap" separating two points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible, linked by an "impossible short circuit" of levels that can never meet. From this consideration of parallax, Zizek begins a rehabilitation of dialectical materialism. Modes ...

(H/B) PUBLISHING MANIFESTOS
AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY FROM ARTISTS AND WRITERS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0429

Manifestos by artists, authors, editors, publishers, designers, zinesters explore publishing as artistic practice. Independent publishing, art publishing, publishing as artistic practice, publishing counterculture, and the zine, DIY, and POD scenes have proliferated over the last two decades. So too have art book fairs, an increasingly important venue-or even medium-for art. Art publishing experienced a similar boom in the 1960s and 1970s, in response to the culture's "linguistic turn." Today, art publishing confronts the internet and the...
