The world of art is complex and challenging, more so in India because the documentation here is remarkably thin; whatever exists is widely scattered and difficult to gather.

Between the pages we hear sages speak of the interrelationships of the arts, practitioners record measurements of units of time and space, iconographers lay down rules and practices, artists record their experiences, and patrons recount their delights. ...

Most Indians are familiar with the sights and sounds of a wedding procession led by musicians clad in brightly coloured uniforms. With their sounds and physical selves, these bandsmen lend prestige to the procession and help control the public spaces through which so many Indian families have moved. Fulfilling a specific cultural and historical demand for processional music, bandsmen and their music are symbolic of the association between musical and cultural change in South Asia. Brass Baja examines the reality of the low musical and social status ascribed to Indian bandsmen, as well as chang... View more info

Performing arts have visioned and visualized the question of violence, from varying and different perspectives. Violence is also built into the structures of various performance traditions. This volume maps the different and multiple dimensions of the relationships between violence and performing arts. It addresses the nature and politics of the representation of violence, problematizing not only depiction of violence ‘aesthetically’, impersonally with a veneer of objectivity but also ‘pleasurable’ reception of violence. It underlines that politicizing aesthetics would challenge valour... View more info

Karlheinz Weinberger’s day job may have been relatively uneventful—working in a Siemen’s warehouse—but the photos he took in his spare time are anything but conformist. Weinberger’s passion, and the focus of this book, is the rebel youth of 1950s and ’60s Switzerland, who channeled American rock-’n’-roll culture and made it their own with their rolled-up jeans and denim jackets, bouffant hairdos, striped T-shirts, and customized belts boasting images of Elvis and James Dean. Weinberger’s lusty, free-spirited and self-confident portraits posit the defiant attitude of youth as ... View more info

In her new book, Lise Sarfati takes us back to the oddly deserted heart of the city of Los Angeles. Almost deserted... as lonesome men walk dispassionately through the streets, as if on a mission but without any obvious destination. The sun in Oh Man is high, the unifying emptiness of the street basked in the Californian light. The nameless men’s random silhouettes stand out distinctively in front of the city’s characteristic urban backdrop, their central positioning lending them an extraordinary prominence in Sarfati’s photographs. These images add up to a long, aloof traveling, devoid ... View more info

Acclaimed for her contemporary and intimate depictions of the nude, Kuhn takes a new direction into abstraction in her latest series She Disappeared into Complete Silence. Photographed at a golden modernist structure on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park, architectural lines, light reflections and a single figure have been carefully balanced against the backdrop of the Californian desert. The human figure, Mona’s friend and collaborator Jacintha, emerges like a surrealist mirage, fragmented and indistinct, at times submerged in shadows or overexposed.

Ultimately it was announced that the fire was burning safely outside the plant, but as a result of their hour of uncertainty Adams decided to try to picture what of worth — absolute worth ...

Since the inception of philosophy, the question of melancholy is intimately connected with creativity. Thus, Aristotle could say that creative people - poets and philosophers - are melancholic people. In contemporary discourses, the question of melancholy has once again acquired its decisive importance. No longer tied to the old conception of the genius, and no longer seen as reducible to a psychopathological disorder, melancholy is now seen as the fundamental attunement between us and the world. To think again of this fascinating question of melancholy in the light of contemporary thought is ... View more info
