"O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as he sought to examine the assumptions on which the modern commercial and museum gallery were based. Concerned with the complex and sophisticated relationship between economics, social context, and aesthetics as represented in the contested space of the art gallery, he raises the question of how artists must construe their work in relation to the gallery space and system."--BOOK JACKET.

Mit seinen schwerpunktmäßigen Analysen der Ausstellungspraxis von Joseph Beuys, Martin Kippenberger, Mike Kelley und Manfred Pernice leistet dieser Band einen essenziellen Beitrag zur kunsthistorischen Auseinandersetzung mit künstlerischen Ausstellungsdisplays seit den 1960er Jahren. Fiona McGovern berücksichtigt nicht nur parergonale Strukturen wie Einladungskarten, Ausstellungskataloge und Installationshots, ihre jeweilige kunstkritische Rezeption und ihnen immanente Dynamiken, sondern diskutiert auch posthum auftauchende Problematiken im Umgang mit dieser Kunstform, die den klassischen Werkbegriff sprengt.

Seit der Antike träumen Menschen davon, Leben künstlich zu erschaffen. Angetrieben durch die enormen Fortschritte bei der DNA-Sequenzierung und Gensynthese ist mit der Synthetischen Biologie eine Fachdisziplin entstanden, die es ermöglicht, das Erbgut von Organismen umzuprogrammieren und lebende Systeme mit Eigenschaftskombinationen herzustellen, die es in der Natur bisher nicht gegeben hat. So könnten zukünftig Lösungen für drängende Probleme in Bereichen wie Gesundheit, Umwelt und Energie gefunden werden. Gleichzeitig bringt die Synthetische Biologie auch politische, rechtliche und ethische Herausforderungen mit sich. Ein interdisziplinärer Ansatz, um aktuelle Entwicklungen aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln zu diskutieren.

Curious Lessons in the Museum

The Pedagogic Potential of Artists' Interventions

Amongst recent contemporary art and museological publications, there have been relatively few which direct attention to the distinct contributions that twentieth and twenty-first century artists have made to gallery and museum interpretation practices. There are fewer still that recognise the pedagogic potential of interventionist artworks in galleries and museums. This book fills that gap and demonstrates how artists have been making curious but, none-the-less, useful contributions to museum education and curation for some time. Claire Robins investigates in depth the phenomenon of artists' interventions in museums and examines their pedagogic implications. She also brings to light and seeks to resolve many of the contradictions surrounding artists' interventions, where on the one hand contemporary artists have been accused of alienating audiences and, on the other, appear to have played a significant role in orchestrating positive developments to the way that learning is defined and configured in museums. She examines the disruptive and parodic strategies that artists have employed, and argues for that they can be understood as part of a move to re-establish the museum as a discursive forum. This valuable book will be essential reading for students and scholars of museum studies, as well as art and cultural studies.

Among students at universities and colleges of higher education, as well as in the written press, one can ascertain a growing interest in media theory. The main thrust of this methodology is the analysis of how a society is altered by the technical characteristics of the various media it encompasses. It examines popular culture as well as the arts, journalism as well as philosophy, scientific as well as general insights, mass media as well as individualized media. Today, there is a conveyor belt of books about new media, but what seems to be missing is knowledge and understanding of the classical media theories of Ernst Cassirer, Susanne Langer, Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Claude Shannon, Gregory Bateson, Vilem Flusser, Friedrich Kittler, and many others. In "Understanding Media Theory, the ideas of these theoreticians and philosophers are explained and applied in a clear and accessible way--not by discussing the writers one by one, but by using real examples and analyzing them on the basis of concepts developed in media theory. Consequently, this volume is accessible to a broad public, though it is primarily intended for students and teachers of media studies.
