Fetisch + Konsum / Fetish + Consumption
October 2009
Can we do without fetishism? Or rather, is fetish an object? Suppose it were not just an object, but the first image of a transaction, the first figure of an exchange that is as necessary as it is desirable? Would this not provide a whole new fund of nuances and ambiguities for our analyses of goods and consumption?
Ungleiche Voraussetzungen
Zur Globalisierung der Künste (Unequal Conditions. On the Globalization of Art)
October 2008
How does contemporary art from Japan, Europe, Korea, Thailand or Pakistan differ? Are there connections between the pre-colonial image production of African countries and today’s contemporary art? What is our image of Africa and how do artists and curators deal with it? How does a Chinese composer who studied with the various major players in new music in Germany deal with his own country’s tradition? Dietrich Heißenbüttel deals with these and other questions in the essays in this volume.
Bildregime des Rechts
September 2007
The essays by legal experts, political scientists, art historians, philosophers and literary scientists united in this volume illuminate not only the history of a functioning “image regime” but also the results of its disturbances and shift from an interdisciplinary perspective. They are culled from the symposium “Bildregime des Rechts (Image Regime of the Law)”, initiated by Cornelia Vismann and Thomas Weitin, which took place in fall 2005 as part of the art, science and business program at the Akademie Schloss Solitude.
Work Spaces in Art, Science & Business
October 2006
The volume dedicates itself to the question of how today’s artists, managers and scientists can think out and design their workspaces. Under which criteria do they proceed? How do the respective objectives and work methods influence the work environment, or what influence does the space have on the work practice?
