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.
