(H/B) WHY PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS AS ART AS NEVER BEFORE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0464

From the late 1970s onward, serious art photography began to be made at large scale and for the wall. Michael Fried argues that this immediately compelled photographers to grapple with issues centering on the relationship between the photograph and the viewer standing before it that until then had been the province only of painting. Fried further demonstrates that certain philosophically deep problems - associated with notions of theatricality, literalness, and objecthood, and touching on the role of original intention in artistic producti...

(P/B) ARTS AND THE CREATION OF MIND
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0369

Although the arts are often thought to be closer to the rim of education than to its core, they are, surprisingly, critically important means for developing complex and subtle aspects of the mind, argues Elliot Eisner in this engrossing book. In it he describes how various forms of thinking are evoked, developed, and refined through the arts. These forms of thinking, Eisner argues, are more helpful in dealing with the ambiguities and uncertainties of daily life than are the formally structured curricula that are employed today in schools. ...
