Description - Interpreting Visual Culture by Ian Heywood

The role of the 'visual' and human perception is increasingly being seen as central to an understanding of the contemporary human condition. Interpreting Visual Culture brings together the writings of some of the leading experts in art history, philosophy, sociology and cultural studies. Ranging from an analysis of the role of vision in current critical discourse to discussion of specific examples taken from the visual arts, ethics and sociology, this collection presents the latest material on the interpretation of the visual in modern culture. Topics covered include: the hermeneutics of seeing the visual rhetoric of modernity the drawings of Bonnard recent feminist art practices and perceptions in art and ethics Divided into three main sections, each beginning with an introductory chapter outlining the main topics under discussion, comprehensive and engaging, Interpreting Visual Culture will be essential reading for students of sociology, cultural studies and art history.
