Sam Francis, Lesson of Darkness (Hardcover): Jean-Francois Lyotard Sam Francis, Lesson of Darkness (Hardcover)
Jean-Francois Lyotard; Edited by Herman Parret; Afterword by Geoffrey Bennington
R798 R758 Discovery Miles 7 580 Save R40 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The second volume in the series Jean-Francois Lyotard Writings on Contemporary Art and Artists introduces forty-two poetical reflections and comments on the work of the well-known Californian painter Sam Francis (1923 1994). This new edition reprints the English text, which is no longer available, with the previously unpublished French original on facing pages. In Lyotard's opinion Sam Francis's work "pays homage to the visible marvel and bears witness to the visual enigma." Color evokes conflicting feelings in the artist: ." . . color says to me: 'Come, I am your consolation, I cure your melancholy, love me, ' and it says to me: 'Go, I am your deception, traverse me, lose yourself and enough of absent truth.'" Lyotard is the first to see through the subtle variety of meanings in Sam Francis's use of color. This edition also reproduces in full color all forty-two paintings discussed by Lyotard."

The Assassination of Experience by Painting, Monory (English, French, Hardcover): Jean-Francois Lyotard The Assassination of Experience by Painting, Monory (English, French, Hardcover)
Jean-Francois Lyotard; Edited by Herman Parret; Afterword by Sarah Wilson
R931 Discovery Miles 9 310 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Lyotard met Jacques Monory in 1972, and the text on him published at that time was the first that Lyotard dedicated to contemporary art since Discourse, Figure. Lyotard's interest in the plastic arts thus fits fully within the setting of his political preoccupations. The artist-protagonist stages the recurring motifs that fascinate Lyotard: the scene of the crime, the revolver, the woman, the victim, glaciers, deserts, stars. The atmosphere of the essays on Monory is "Californian." Monory's imaginary repertoire goes well beyond the masters of modernity and is in line rather with a "modern contemporary surrealism."

Both Lyotard and Monory live the dilemma of Americanization, the America represented by cinema, fashion, novels, music. It is in this atmosphere that Lyotard and Monory will finally evoke their supreme experience of difference: desire and fear, exultation and a profound malaise. The plastic universe of Monory and the aesthetic meditations of Lyotard are in perfect symbiosis. Sarah Wilson's epilogue thoroughly outlines both the history of a friendship and, at the same time, the intellectual and artistic climate of the 1970s."

The first volume of Jean-Francois Lyotard's Miscellaneous d104s on contemporary art and artists, Aesthetics and Theory of Art, contains nine essays on general aesthetics and the theory of art. They are published in the original French along with the translations in English. Most of these texts, preserved in the Lyotard archives of the Bibliotheque Litteraire Jacques Doucet in Paris, are presented here for the first time. They cover the whole period of his production, from 1969 to 1997, and they make the development of his philosophy of art explicit. After the "libidinal" conception of art in his early writings, the "Kantian twist" of around 1980 places his view on art under the aegis of the sublime.

The second volume of Jean-Francois Lyotard's Miscellaneous d104s, Contemporary Artists, gathers thirty-nine essays by Lyotard that deal with twenty-seven influential and innovative contemporary artists: Luciano Berio, Richard Lidner, Rene Guiffrey, Gianfranco Baruchello, Henri Maccheroni, Riwan Tromeur, Albert Ayme, Manuel Casimiro, Ruth Francken, Barnett Newman, Jean-Luc Parant, Francois Lapouge, Sam Francis, Andre Dubreuil, Joseph Kosuth, Sarah Flohr, Lino Centi, Gigliola Fazzini, Bracha Lichtenberger Ettinger, Henri Martin, Michel Bouvet, Corinne Filippi, Stig Brogger, Francois Rouan, Pierre Skira Pastels, and Beatrice Casadesus. Many of these texts were originally published in catalogs; others were published in hard-to-find journals. This volume of Miscellaneous d104s is illustrated with more than sixty images, mainly in color, of works of art discussed by Lyotard in these writings."

Karel Appel, A Gesture of Colour (Hardcover): Jean-Francois Lyotard Karel Appel, A Gesture of Colour (Hardcover)
Jean-Francois Lyotard; Introduction by Herman Parret; Afterword by Christine Buci-Glucksmann
R770 Discovery Miles 7 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The first volume in the new series Jean-Francois Lyotard: Writings on Contemporary Art and Artists is dedicated to the Dutch Abstract Expressionist painter, sculptor, and poet Karel Appel (1921 2006). Originally published in German, the book's original French text, written in 1992 as the result of a correspondence with Karel Appel, is here published for the first time. In his text about Appel, Lyotard reflects on the nature and function of color as it is used by the artist. Karel Appel, A Gesture of Colour brings together, in a special color section, twenty-five color reproductions of paintings discussed by Lyotard. The layout of this remarkable art historical survey of Appel's work emphasizes the bilingual texts.Lyotard presents Karel Appel's "matterism" as an offer of presence, presence deferred it is the visual where every predicate is suspended, the visual touched, a "gesture" of color more than a property of color, an appearance at the edge of the abyss. Christine Buci-Glucksmann's epilogue situates Karel Appel, a Gesture of Colour within the whole of Lyotard's writings on art and his subsequent work."

Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964) is a Belgian artist who specializes in sculpture using various media, including wax, wood, wool, and horse skin and hair. Published to coincide with De Bruyckere's participation in the 2013 Venice Biennale, this richly illustrated catalogue traces her work from conception to installation, providing a multifaceted introduction to the artist's complex and compelling work. Struck by the passion and fierce beauty in the writings of J. M. Coetzee, De Bruyckere asked the acclaimed writer to curate the Belgian Pavilion's exhibition. A previously unpublished text by Coetzee is included in this volume, as well as correspondence that the two exchanged throughout their collaborative process. The book is also enriched by writings by Herman Parret, who explores Saint Sebastian-the dual incarnation of sensuality and mystical suffering, and Venice's quintessential symbol-and his particular significance to De Bruyckere's oeuvre.

Les Transformateurs Duchamp/Duchamp's TRANS/formers (English, French, Hardcover): Jean-Francois Lyotard Les Transformateurs Duchamp/Duchamp's TRANS/formers (English, French, Hardcover)

R764 Discovery Miles 7 640 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is the third of a series of five volumes that exhaustively brings together the writings of Jean-Francois Lyotard (1924 1998) on contemporary art and artists. This collection of essays, written between 1974 and 1977 in the midst of Duchamp's rediscovery in France, was published by Editions Galilee, Paris, in 1977 and in English translation by the Lapis Press, Los Angeles, in 1990.

This volume republishes the two versions face-to-face, including the drawings, diagrams, and images of the original edition. Herman Parret presents the text in a substantial introduction, and Dalia Judovitz situates it in the more general framework of Lyotardian philosophical reflection. Duchamp's TRANS/formers reconstructs Large Glass and Given, Duchamp's two major works that glorify the body in its topological conceptuality. The book introduces the question of the advent and the event of art and invites us further to consider the debt that philosophical commentary owes to the artistic gesture."

Une certaine idee de l'Europe nait avec Charlemagne et depuis ce neuvieme siecle medieval jusqu'a nos jours, la pensee italienne a faconne la culture europeenne de facon profonde et decisive. La pensee italienne, comme elle s'est deployee au cours de l'histoire dans les sciences, la philosophie et les arts, a ete largement assimilee, amendee et transposee dans la plupart des pays de l'Europe. C'est en Italie que naissent les universites, que la vie monastique a ete inventee par Saint Benoit, que la civilisation communale jusqu'a l'invention des banques a pris son essor. Depuis Florence, Venise et Rome, la Renaissance et l'Humanisme conquierent la France, l'Angleterre et les pays du Nord. La nouvelle vision du monde et de la societe, de Machiavel a Giurdano Bruno, de Galileo a Vico, s'implantera dans l'esprit europeen. Au vingtieme siecle, des penseurs et des mouvements politiques italiens ont eu un impact considerable sur l'histoire de la gauche et de la droite europeenne, tandis que l'eclosion des arts (cinema, theatre, musique, architecture) n'ont cesse de fasciner l'Europe entiere. Le present volume contient les Actes du colloque La contribution de la pensee italienne a la culture europeenne, qui s'est deroule du 6 au 8 novembre 2003 au Palais des Beaux-Arts dans le cadre d'Europalia-Italia. Preside par Umberto Eco, le colloque a fait appel a une serie de conferenciers de renommee internationale (Claudio Leonardi, Costantino Marmo, Maria Teresa Fumagalli, Rudi Imbach, Gilbert Tournoy, Jean-Jacques Marchand, Lina Bolzoni, Andrea Battistini, Pietro Corsi, Jean Weisgerber, David Forgacs).

AESTHETICIZING PRAGMATICS The Gamut of Pragmatics Pragmatics emerged among the sciences of language at the end of the 1960's in reaction to certain totalizing models in linguistics: structuralism (primarily in Europe) and generative grammar (initially in the United States). Certain disciples of Chomsky became dissatisfied with autono- mous syntax and later with generative semantics: they decided to break away from their mentor. Whereas Chomsky continued to talk a lot about very little, they defied him by speaking very suggestively about an exces- sively broad range of phenomena. Pragmatics -which Bar-Hillel consid- ered as a 'wastebasket discipline' in the fifties - nevertheless gained respectability. The history of pragmatics spans, of course, much more than three decades. The Stoic conception of language, in the shadow of the great Greek tradition and therefore intensely subversive, had in fact a pragmatic aim. The term pragmatisch appears in Kant: it expresses a relation with a human goal, this goal being only determinable within a community. This characterization naturally inspires the pragmaticism of l the Neo-Kantian Charles Sanders Peirce . It is this Kant-Peirce lineage that led to Morris and Carnap's rather bland conceptions of pragmatics, after the heavy losses incurred by positivism and behaviorism. In any case, despite the constant presence of a pragmatic approach in the history of thought, this reassessment of pragmatics (against the triumphs proclaimed by structuralism and generativism) was experienced as a Significant break- through. A whole range of pragmatics came to the attention of linguists.

Seven writings assembled in the context of the philosophy of art that Jean-Francois Lyotard developed in the 1980s, at the time of the Differend (1983) and of the "Kantian turn" leading to the Lessons on the Analytic of the Sublime (1992), are here published for the first time in English translation. The texts focus on three artists with widely divergent aesthetic orientations: the colorist-draftsman Valerio Adami, the conceptual metaphysician Shusaku Arakawa, and Daniel Buren, the "pragmatist of the invisible."

These three protagonists share the notion that the interest in art does not lie in the simple denotation of a frame of reference, but in the connotations of material nuances, in flavors, in tones in one word, the visual, that is barely revealed in the anamnesis that guides the visible and provokes the essential inquietude of the aesthetic experience. What to Paint? Not reality or a world, nor a rich subjectivity, nor even the phantasms of dreams or ideals of being-together, but the act of painting itself, and, beyond the performance of the painter, the presence of matters, a presence that in Arakawa's word is quite obviously blank, elusive."
