Street photographers will never tire of New York as a subject. It is the perfect setting for the genre, the world's most evocative cityscape, against which candid, memorable moments play themselves out every day. Nearly a decade ago, Vivienne Gucwa began walking the streets of the city with the only camera she could afford a sub-$100 point-and-shoot and started taking pictures. Choosing a direction and going as far as her feet would take her, she noticed lines, forms and structures that had previously gone unnoticed but which resonated, embodying a sense of home. Having limited equipment forced her to learn about light, composition and colour, and her burgeoning talent won her blog millions of readers and wide recognition in the photographic community. New York Through the Lens showcases the stunning results of her ongoing quest. Filled with spectacular photographs and illuminated by Vivienne's own insightful commentary, NY Through the Lens acts as a beautiful travel guide to the city; it will be a must-read for her many fans and for any lover of street photography.

Mit Barack Obama sollte die amerikanische Gesellschaft ihren jahrhundertealten Rassismus überwinden. Am Ende seiner Amtszeit zerschlugen sich die Reste dieser Hoffnung mit der Machtübernahme Donald Trumps, den Ta-Nehisi Coates als "Amerikas ersten weißen Präsidenten" bezeichnet: ein Mann, dessen politische Existenz in der Abgrenzung zu Obama besteht. Coates zeichnet ein bestechend kluges und leidenschaftliches Porträt der Obama-Ära und ihres Vermächtnisses – ein essenzielles Werk zum Verständnis der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft der USA, von einem Autor, dessen eigene Geschichte jener acht Jahre von einem Arbeitsamt in Harlem bis ins Oval Office führte, wo er den Präsidenten interviewte.

Der Fotograf Brandon Stanton begann im Sommer 2010 das ehrgeizige Projekt, ein fotografisches Porträt von New York City zu erschaffen. Aus den daraus entstandenen Fotos und Interviews wurde der Blog Humans of New York mit aktuell über 14 Millionen Fans auf Facebook. Das 2013 veröffentlichte Buch Humans of New York, das auf dem Blog basierte, schoss sofort an die Spitze der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und blieb dort für über 45 Wochen. Nun ist Brandon Stanton zurück, mit dem Buch, auf das alle gewartet haben: Humans of New York: Die besten Storys. Seit Stanton angefangen hatte, Menschen in den Straßen von New York zu interviewen, war der Dialog mit ihnen genauso detailliert, faszinierend und bewegend gewesen wie die Fotos selbst. Humans of New York: Die besten Storys zeigt völlig neue Personen in großartigen Fotos mit längeren, tiefergehenden Geschichten, die mit noch mehr Offenheit überraschen und uns aufs Neue erstaunen.

Examines the pivotal role New York State played in the Civil War. An Irrepressible Conflict documents the pivotal role New York State played in our nation’s bloodiest and most enduring conflict. As the wealthiest and most populous state in the Union, the Empire State led all others in supplying men, money, and material to the causes of unity and freedom. New York’s experience provides significant insight into the reasons why the war was fought and the meaning that the Civil War holds today. A companion to the award-winning exhibition of the same name, displayed at the New York State Museum from September 2012 to March 2014, An Irrepressible Conflict includes reproductions of objects from the collections of the New York State Museum, Library, and Archives, as well as more than twenty-five different institutions across the state. Among the many significant objects are a Lincoln life mask from 1860 from the New-York Historical Society; the earliest photograph of Frederick Douglass (a rare 8″ x 10″ daguerreotype image, courtesy of the Onondaga Historical Association); the only known portrait of Dred Scott, also from New-York Historical Society; and a bronze medal given to the defenders of Fort Sumter by the City of New York from the museum’s own collection. The title is inspired by an 1858 quote from then US Senator William H. Seward, who also served as governor of New York (1839–42) and Secretary of State (1861–69). Seward disagreed with those who believed that the prospect of war between the North and South was the work of “fanatical agitators.” He understood that the roots of conflict went far deeper, writing, “It is an irrepressible conflict, between opposing and enduring forces, and it means that the United States must and will, sooner or later, become either entirely a slave-holding nation or entirely a free-labor nation.” Praise for the exhibition: Winner, Award of Merit from the American Association of State and Local History “The exhibition reveals New York not only as indispensable to the Union (and to its ultimate victory) but also as essential to the continued pursuit of justice among the formerly enslaved and their descendants. It admirably realizes its objective: To establish New York’s significance in the Civil War and its lasting battle for freedom.” — Wall Street Journal “…adroitly interweaves a rich trove of paintings and engravings, artifacts, photographs, and documents, many borrowed from institutions throughout the state, with a lucid interpretive script to make a convincing case for the Empire State’s pivotal role in the conflict … The exhibition is well conceived intellectually, written in an engaging, mercifully concise style and designed with visitors of all ages in mind.” — Journal of American History

New York, 1980: Energiegeladen, wild, im Aufbruch »Ein grandioser, tragischer, witziger Kunst- und Künstlerroman. Und eine Liebeserklärung an das New York der frühen Achtzigerjahre!" Annabelle James, Raul und Lucy wollen in New York berühmt werden. Die Kunstszene der Stadt ist im Umbruch, überall gibt es spontane Aktionen, Sprayer und Maler erobern das Stadtbild. Noch ist das Leben billig, sie müssen nur die richtigen Leute treffen. Ein paar tausend Kilometer südlich in Buenos Aires wird Rauls Schwester von der Militärjunta verfolgt. Als ihr kleiner Sohn in New York auftaucht, reißt er die drei aus ihrem Leben für die Kunst. Silvester 1979. Drei junge Künstler begegnen sich in New York auf einer Party, berauscht von Erwartungen an das neue Jahrzehnt. Sie sind Teil der schillernden Kunstszene und ein enges Trio. Sie leben zügellos, feiern die Kunst und hoffen auf den schnellen Ruhm. Raul ist ein leidenschaftlicher Maler, der vor der argentinischen Militärdiktatur nach New York geflohen ist. Er taucht ein in eine Welt der Kreativität und Freiheit. James ist der führende Kunstkritiker der Stadt. Seine Synästhesie ermöglicht es ihm, Gemälde körperlich zu verstehen. Und die Provinzschönheit Lucy ist nach New York gekommen, um all ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Das Jahr 1980 wird für die drei zum Schicksalsjahr. Als Künstler und als Persönlichkeiten. Bis Rauls kleiner Neffe bei ihnen vor der Junta in Sicherheit gebracht wird. Plötzlich reicht es ihnen nicht mehr, sich dem Hunger nach Leben hinzugeben. »Das Buch ist ein Kunstwerk. Mit einer eindringlichen Geschichte und authentischer, fast fieberhafter Sprache.« The New York Times Book Review

For decades postwar Austrian literature has been measured against and moulded into a series of generic categories and grand cultural narratives, from nostalgic 'restoration¿ literature of the 1950s through the socially critical 'anti-Heimat¿ novel to recent literary reckonings with Austria¿s Nazi past. Peering through the lens of film adaptation, this book rattles the generic shackles imposed by literary history and provides an entirely new critical perspective on Austrian literature. Its original methodological approach challenges the primacy of written sources in existing scholarship and uses the distortions generated by the shift in medium as a productive starting point for literary analysis. Five case studies approach canonical texts in post-war Austrian literature by Gerhard Fritsch, Franz Innerhofer, Gerhard Roth, Elfriede Jelinek, and Robert Schindel, through close readings of their cinematic adaptations, concentrating on key areas of narratological concern: plot, narrative perspective, authorship, and post-modern ontologies. Setting the texts within the historical, cultural and political discourses that define the 'Alpine Republic¿, this study investigates fundamental aspects of Austrian national identity, such as its Habsburg and National Socialist legacies.
