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.

Books By Author Mieke Bal

Nalini Malani: In Medias Res by Mieke Bal Nalini Malani: 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.

Trine Sondergaard by Mieke Bal Trine Sondergaard, Hardback (January 2014)

Layered with quiet emotion, the photographs of Danish artist Trine Sondergaard (born 1972) are celebrated for their intensification of our perception of reality. Sondergaard's new volume brings together three recent series exploring stillness and introspection, in which different historical time periods and materials meet.
