(H/B) RADICAL VIRTUOSITY
ANA MENDIETA AND THE BLACK ATLANTIC
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0479

Reclaiming the artist Ana Mendieta as a formally innovative maker of performative art who forged connections to the marginalized around the world. The artist Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) is remembered as the creator of powerful works expressing a vibrant and unflinching second-wave feminist sensibility. In Radical Virtuosity, art historian Genevieve Hyacinthe offers a new view of Mendieta, connecting her innovative artwork to the art, cultural aesthetics and concerns, feminisms, and sociopolitical messages of the black Atlantic. Mendieta left...

(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...

(H/B) AESTHETICS EQUALS POLITICS
NEW DISCOURSES ACROSS ART, ARCHITECTURE, AND PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0410

How aesthetics-understood as a more encompassing framework for human activity-might become the primary discourse for political and social engagement. These essays make the case for a reignited understanding of aesthetics-one that casts aesthetics not as illusory, subjective, or superficial, but as a more encompassing framework for human activity. Such an aesthetics, the contributors suggest, could become the primary discourse for political and social engagement. Departing from the "critical" stance of twentieth-century artists and theoris...

(P/B) IN THE SWARM
DIGITAL PROSPECTS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0343

"The shitstorm represents an authentic phenomenon of digital communication." Digital communication and social media have taken over our lives. In this contrarian reflection on digitized life, Byung-Chul Han counters the cheerleaders for Twitter revolutions and Facebook activism by arguing that digital communication is in fact responsible for the disintegration of community and public space and is slowly eroding any possibility for real political action and meaningful political discourse. In the predigital, analog era, by the time an angry ...

(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) 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 ...

(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...

(H/B) MASS EFFECT
ART AND THE INTERNET IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0470

Essays, discussions, and image portfolios map the evolution of art forms engaged with the Internet. Since the turn of the millennium, the Internet has evolved from what was merely a new medium to a true mass medium-with a deeper and wider cultural reach, greater opportunities for distribution and collaboration, and more complex corporate and political realities. Mapping a loosely chronological series of formative arguments, developments, and happenings, Mass Effect provides an essential guide to understanding the dynamic and ongoing relati...

(H/B) SOUND ART
SOUND AS A MEDIUM OF ART
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0475

Essays and images that map art's new sonic cosmos, illustrated in color throughout. This milestone volume maps fifty years of artists' engagement with sound. Since the beginning of the new millennium, numerous historical and critical works have established sound art as an artistic genre in its own right, with an accepted genealogy that begins with Futurism, Dada, and Fluxus, as well as disciplinary classifications that effectively restrict artistic practice to particular tools and venues. This book, companion volume to a massive exhibition...

(H/B) PUBLIC SERVANTS
ART AND THE CRISIS OF THE COMMON GOOD
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0473

Essays, dialogues, and art projects that illuminate the changing role of art as it responds to radical economic, political, and global shifts. How should we understand the purpose of publicly engaged art in the twenty-first century, when the very term "public art" is largely insufficient to describe such practices? Concepts such as "new genre public art," "social practice," or "socially engaged art" may imply a synergy between the role of art and the role of government in providing social services. Yet the arts and social services differ...

(P/B) RETHINKING CURATING
ART AFTER NEW MEDIA
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0472

Redefining curatorial practice for those working with new kinds of art. As curator Steve Dietz has observed, new media art is like contemporary art-but different. New media art involves interactivity, networks, and computation and is often about process rather than objects. New media artworks are difficult to classify according to the traditional art museum categories determined by medium, geography, and chronology and present the curator with novel challenges involving interpretation, exhibition, and dissemination. This book views these c...

(P/B) LIVING AS FORM
SOCIALLY ENGAGED ART FROM 1991-2011
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0474

A monumental, lavishly illustrated book that offers the first global portrait of a complex and definition-defying genre of cultural production. Over the past twenty years, an abundance of art forms have emerged that use aesthetics to affect social dynamics. These works are often produced by collectives or come out of a community context; they emphasize participation, dialogue, and action, and appear in situations ranging from theater to activism to urban planning to visual art to health care. Engaged with the texture of living, these art w...

(H/B) GYORGY KEPES
UNDREAMING THE BAUHAUS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0476

How Gyorgy Kepes, the last disciple of Bauhaus modernism, became the single most significant artist within a network of scientific experts and elites. Gyorgy Kepes (1906-2001) was the last disciple of Bauhaus modernism, an acolyte of L?szl? Moholy-Nagy and a self-styled revolutionary artist. But by midcentury, transplanted to America, Kepes found he was trapped in the military-industrial-aesthetic complex. In this first book-length study of Kepes, John Blakinger argues that Kepes, by opening the research laboratory to the arts, established...

(P/B) TRAP DOOR
TRANS CULTURAL PRODUCTION AND THE POLITICS OF VISIBILITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0477

Essays, conversations, and archival investigations explore the paradoxes, limitations, and social ramifications of trans representation within contemporary culture. The increasing representation of trans identity throughout art and popular culture in recent years has been nothing if not paradoxical. Trans visibility is touted as a sign of a liberal society, but it has coincided with a political moment marked both by heightened violence against trans people (especially trans women of color) and by the suppression of trans rights under civil...

(H/B) STEREOPHONICA
SOUND AND SPACE IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND THE ARTS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0471

Episodes in the transformation of our understanding of sound and space, from binaural listening in the nineteenth century to contemporary sound art. The relationship between sound and space has become central to both creative practices in music and sound art and contemporary scholarship on sound. Entire subfields have emerged in connection to the spatial aspects of sound, from spatial audio and sound installation to acoustic ecology and soundscape studies. But how did our understanding of sound become spatial? In Stereophonica, Gascia Ouzo...

(P/B) WALKING AND MAPPING
ARTISTS AS CARTOGRAPHERS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0478

An exploration of walking and mapping as both form and content in art projects using old and new technologies, shoe leather and GPS. From Guy Debord in the early 1950s to Richard Long, Janet Cardiff, and Esther Polak more recently, contemporary artists have returned again and again to the walking motif. Today, the convergence of global networks, online databases, and new tools for mobile mapping coincides with a resurgence of interest in walking as an art form. In Walking and Mapping, Karen O'Rourke explores a series of walking/mapping pro...

(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...
