Ecstasy Unlimited by Laura Kipnis

Book Description

In "Ecstasy Unlimited", Laura Kipnis provides a collection of essays on popular culture, politics, aesthetics, feminism, and postmodernism, along with complete scripts from three of her videotapes. These essays, written from her perspective as a practising artist, in tandem with her videoscripts, are singular in bringing a wide range of theoretical sophistication to film and video studies. Kipnis challenges political and aesthetic orthodoxies. Her interpretations take risks at a number of levels, and do not easily fit into established disciplines and categories. Extensively illustrated with stills from her videotapes, "Ecstasy Unlimited" examines everyday life and popular culture produced by consumer capitalism in ironic - and, at times, very funny - ways. Laura Kipnis is a video artist and theorist whose work has been shown widely in the United States and Europe. Her latest video production is "Marx: the Video". She has written extensively on the politics and aesthetics of postmodernism, feminism, and popular culture. This book is intended for students and academics of media studies, cultural politics.

Books By Author Laura Kipnis

Men by Laura Kipnis Men, Paperback (November 2015)

In the essays collected here, Kipnis revisits the archetypes of wayward masculinity that have captured her imagination over the years: the scumbag, the con man, the lothario, the obsessive, cheaters, gropers, self-deceivers, and many others.

How to Become a Scandal by Laura Kipnis How to Become a Scandal, Paperback / softback (August 2011)

Kipnis examines contemporary downfall sagas to lay bare the American psyche: what we condone, what we punish, where we draw the line, and why. She delivers virtuoso analyses of four paradigmatic cases: a lovelorn astronaut, an unhinged judge, a venomous whistleblower, and an overimaginative memoirist.

Bound and Gagged by Laura Kipnis Bound and Gagged, Paperback (December 1998)

Presents and challenges the most basic assumptions about America's relationship with pornography and questions what the calls to eliminate it are really attempting to protect.
