Double Exposures by Mieke Bal

Book Description

A feminist literary theorist, specialist in Rembrandt, and a scholar with a knack for reading Old Testament stories, Mieke Bal weaves a tapestry of signs and meanings that enrich our senses. Her subject is the act of showing, the gesture of exposing to view. In a museum, for example, the object is on display, made visually available. "That's how it is," the display proclaims. But who says so? Bal's subjects are displays from the American Museum of Natural History, paintings by such figures as Courbet, Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, and Rembrandt, as well as works by twentieth-century artists, and such literary texts as Shakespeare's Rape of Lucrece.

In Medias Res by Mieke Bal In Medias Res, Hardback (June 2016)

This book explores the new language that Indian artist Nalini Malani (born 1946) has been developing since early this century with her shadow plays. The result is an extremely powerful application of the idea of the moving image--past, present and future.

Of What One Cannot Speak by Mieke Bal Of What One Cannot Speak, Hardback (January 2011)

Doris Salcedo, a Colombian-born artist, addresses the politics of memory and forgetting in work that embraces fraught situations in dangerous places. This title leads us into intimate encounters with Salcedo's art, encouraging us to consider each work as a 'theoretical object' that invites certain kinds of considerations about history and grief.
