A collection of programmes, materials and articles on the Pip Simmons’ performance.
Nigel Spivey takes on one of the greatest taboos in Western culture in this original work of cultural history: why is so much pain depicted in the art of the West?
Programme of the performance which takes the first book of the Old Testament as its inspiration.
Programme for a multi-media composition, based on the book I Never Saw Another Butterfly. Featuring poems and drawings by Jewish children imprisoned in Terezin, composer Jocelyn Pook draws inspiration from the children’s creative spirit.
A diverse group of contributors, from art historians, anthropologists, and political theorists to artists, filmmakers, and architects, considers the interaction of politics and the visual in such topics as the political consequences of a photograph taken by an Israeli soldier in a Palestinian house in Ramallah; AIDS activism; images of social suffering in Iran; the “forensic architecture” of claims to truth; and the “Make Poverty History” campaign. Transcending disciplines, they trace a broader image complex whereby politics is brought to visibility through the mediation of specific cultural forms that mix the legal and the visual, the hermeneutic and the technical, the political and the aesthetic.
