Abstract

The aim of Hiding Making - Showing Creation is twofold. In the first instance, we seek to trace the Nachleben of these studio&#xD;topoi from the nineteenth century to today, in particular focusing on&#xD;how artists have employed them as strategies for showing certain aspects&#xD;of their practice (above all those which perpetuate the notions&#xD;of artistic genius and autonomy), while carefully hiding others from&#xD;view (routine, failure, craft).&#xD;Secondly, in order to achieve these goals, we have adopted a method&#xD;that we feel not only does justice to the richness and diversity of the&#xD;topic but which, we believe, will add a new dimension to the already&#xD;abundant and ever growing literature on the artist's studio.

Abstract

The Real Life of Sebastian Knight is one of Vladimir Nabokov’s most autobiographical novels and it has often been observed that Sebastian’s passionate affair with the femme fatale Nina Rechnoy is a dramatized extension of Nabokov’s infatuation with Irina Guadanini. In this book it is shown that the novel also conceals another, secluded, love affair Sebastian had with a man, which reflects the main episode in the life of Nabokov’s brother Sergey. By pursuing many biographical and literary references and allusions, and by disregarding the deceptive guiding by the narrator (Sebastian’s half-brother), this moving story about Sebastian’s silent love becomes brightly visible.

Abstract

This collection explores the complex world of early cinema in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The story of how cinema established itself in China has not been well-understood. Cultural models for cinema-going and industry practices varied widely across China. By looking at several centers of cinematic activity, going beyond commercial fiction film to include non-fiction films (such as educational film), and taking on Cantonese as well as Mandarin productions. Beyond the Silver Screens presents early cinema in China in a new light Highlights Hong Kong, Taipei and Guangzhou as well as better-know examples from Shanghai, these essays foreground the cinema’s relationships with imperialism and colonialism, examining how cinematic culture established itself by adapting to distinctive local social and artistic practices, emphasizing the potency of cinema as a sociocultural institution.

Abstract

From its earliest manifestations on the street corners of nineteenth-century Buenos Aires to its ascendancy as a global cultural form, tango has continually exceeded the confines of the dance floor or the music hall. In Tango Lessons, scholars from Latin America and the United States explore tango's enduring vitality. The interdisciplinary group of contributors—including specialists in dance, music, anthropology, linguistics, literature, film, and fine art—take up a broad range of topics. Among these are the productive tensions between tradition and experimentation in tango nuevo, representations of tango in film and contemporary art, and the role of tango in the imagination of Jorge Luis Borges. Taken together, the essays show that tango provides a kaleidoscopic perspective on Argentina's social, cultural, and intellectual history from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first centuries.

Abstract

As sites of turbulence and transformation, cities are machines for forgetting. And yet archiving and exhibiting the presence of the past remains a key cultural, political and economic activity in many urban environments. This book takes the example of Berlin over the past four decades to chart how the memory culture of the city has responded to the challenges and transformations thrown up by the changing political, social and economic organization of the built environment. The book focuses on the visual culture of the city (architecture, memorials, photography and film). It argues that the recovery of the experience of time is central to the practices of an emergent memory culture in a contemporary 'overexposed' city, whose spatial and temporal boundaries have long since disintegrated.

Abstract

Carnival Texts comprises three related dramatic works, all of which have as their point of departure Russian theorist Mikhail Bakhtin’s concept of carnival, a literary style designed to subvert dominant assumptions through chaos and humour. Making creative use of post-Brechtian performance theory, these texts blur the distinction between spectator and performer in a fascinating exploration of physical, moral, and cultural upheaval in a postmodern age. Performance theory is crucial to understanding how performance affects collective understanding, and this book will be of interest to a broad range of students of drama and theatre.

Abstract

Disability studies have long been the domain of medical and pedagogical academics. However, in recent years, the subject has outgrown its clinical origins. In Freaks of History, James MacDonald presents two dramatic explorations of disability within the wider themes of sexuality, gender, foreignness, and the Other. Originally directed by Martin Harvey and performed by undergraduate students at the University of Exeter, Wellclose Square and Unsex Me Here analyze cultural marginalization against the backdrop of infamous historical events.

Abstract

O cinema como objeto de estudo para verificar o modo pelo qual a resistência política à ditadura militar foi representada no período a ela posterior, dando destaque à participação feminina. A análise fílmica possibilitaria observar quais elementos estariam presentes em cena para retratar tal questão, e os estudos de gênero permitiria debater de que forma as relações sociais entre os sexos eram abordadas nos filmes selecionados. Trata-se, portanto, de compreender não apenas como a resistência à ditadura é representada, mas, sobretudo, como esse passado é reconstruído nas diversas formas em que pode ser materializado pela perspectiva feminista, considerando que esta trabalha com elementos fundamentais na luta em torno da memória e pelo reconhecimento de histórias esquecidas. Nesse sentido, procuro privilegiar os pontos onde se cruzam os estudos da memória e o pensamento feminista, visto que este atinge profundamente as necessidades de um resgate histórico ao denunciar o esquecimento de reivindicações, lutas e ações das mulheres.

Abstract

A obra é fruto de tese defendida no Programa de Pós-Graduação em Artes Cênicas da UFBA, em 2007. Aborda questões relativas ao teatro em meio ao ideário contracultural, investindo sua argumentação contra a afirmação de que a produção teatral que se dá de 1968 a 1974 é destituída de criticidade. Propondo outro ponto de vista, o livro apresenta e analisa a produção teatral para afirmar que não houve um "vazio cultural" durante o período em que o governo civil-militar esteve no poder e utilizou a censura e a repressão para calar os artistas.
