This volume offers a multifaceted investigation of intersections among visual and memorial forms in modern art, politics, and society. The question of the relationships among images and memory is particularly relevant to contemporary society, at a time when visually-based technologies are increasingly employed in both grand and modest efforts to preserve the past amid rapid social change. The chapters in this book provide valuable insights concerning not only how memories may be seen (or sighted) in visual form but also how visual forms constitute noteworthy material sites of memory. The collection addresses this central theme with a wealth of interdisciplinary and international approaches, featuring conventional scholarly as well as artistic works from such disciplines as rhetoric and communication, art and art history, architecture, landscape studies, and more, by contributors from around the globe.

Custer on Canvas

The 1876 events known as Custer’s Last Stand, Battle of Little Big Horn, or Battle of Greasy Grass have been represented over 1000 times in various artistic media, from paintings to sculpture to fast food giveaways. Norman Denzin shows how these representations demonstrate the changing perceptions—often racist—of Native America by the majority culture, juxtaposed against very different readings shown in works composed by Native American artists. Consisting of autobiographical reminiscences, historical description, artistic representations, staged readings, and snippets of documents, this multilayered performance ethnography examines questions of memory, race, and violence against Native America, as symbolized by the changing interpretations of General Custer and his final battle.

wort und Bild fügen die Autoren in einer neuen Sicht zu einem instruktiven Diagrammkonzept zusammen. Diagramme sind Amalgame des Erkennens, aber auch, um als Erkenntnismittel verständlich zu werden, innerweltlich vorfindbare Gegenstände, mit denen kognitiv gearbeitet wird. Diagrammatisches Denken eröffnet Querverweise und ermöglicht so eine relationale, vom Erkennenden aktiv betriebene Urteilsbildung.

Nicht nur Individuen, sondern auch Kulturen bilden ein Gedächtnis aus, um Identitäten herzustellen, Legitimation zu gewinnen und Ziele zu bestimmen. Aleida Assmann fragt nach den verschiedenen Aufgaben kultureller Erinnerung, ihren Medien (wie Schrift, Bilder oder Denkmäler) sowie nach den Formen des Umgangs mit gespeicherten Wissen, bei denen neben Politik und Wissenschaft auch der Kunst eine wachsende Bedeutung zukommt. „Bei ihrem reichhaltigen Streifzug durch die Kulturgeschichte zeichnet Aleida Assmann die Bedeutung von Erinnerung bei Projekten der Identitätsbildung nach. ... Der emotional ergreifendste, aber auch politisch brisanteste Aspekt dieses Rundgangs taucht auf jenen Seiten auf, wo die Nähe von Erinnerung und Situationen des Schocks oder Katastrophen ausgeleuchtet wird.“ Elisabeth Bronfen, Süddeutsche Zeitung

""On the one hand, the affirmation that Latino art is American art is simply a fact. Latino artists are American by birth, citizenship, residence, education, experience, and even sacrifice-a factor made clear by the large number of Latino artists that have served in the United States armed forces. On the other hand, the statement poses a challenge to the ways in which we traditionally think about what constitutes American art."-E. Carmen RamosIs Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists-those of Latin American descent and heritage-express their relationship to American art, history, and culture.Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the "recycled" films of Raphael Montaänez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Melesio "Mel" Casas, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Margarita Cabrera, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernâandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jimâenez, Ana Mendieta, Pepâon Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodri;guez, and John Valadez, among many others.Author and curator E. Carmen Ramos is the Smithsonian American Art Museum's curator of latino art. She has organized numerous shows, including the fifth biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York City in 2007.Dr. Tomâas Ybarra-Frausto, the "grandfather" of this subject, and formerly associate director for creativity and culture at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, has written and published extensively on US/latino cultural issues"--

Seit "Fegefeuer der Eitelkeiten" gab es keinen Roman mehr, der unsere Zeit so treffend, unterhaltsam und weitsichtig erklärt. Nero Golden kommt aus einem Land, dessen Namen er nie wieder hören wollte, seit er mit seinen drei erwachsenen Söhnen vor ein paar Jahren nach New York gezogen ist und sich eine junge Russin zur Frau genommen hat. Der junge Filmemacher René wohnt im Nachbarhaus und ist fasziniert von der Familie, die ihm besten Stoff für ein Drehbuch liefert: Aufstieg und Fall eines skrupellos ehrgeizigen, narzisstischen und mediengewandten Schurken, der Make-up trägt und sich die Haare färbt. René wird Zeuge und in einer folgenschweren Episode sogar Teilhaber des dekadenten Treibens im Golden House, dessen Besitzer nicht nur den Vornamen mit Kaiser Nero teilt ... Salman Rushdie erfasst den irritierenden Zeitgeist und zeichnet mit größter Erzählkunst ein treffendes Bild unserer heutigen Welt. Dieser Roman beweist aufs Neue, dass er einer der besten Geschichtenerzähler unserer Tage ist.
