This work presents two previously unpublished series of photographs by Andres Serrano. The first previously unpublished series of photographs - Residents of New York - was produced in the artist's hometown in 2014 and the second - Denizens of Brussels - in March 2015 in close cooperation with the Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts during preparations for Serrano's retrospective in Brussels, when he walked the streets of the capital for ten nights to encounter the most marginal of its inhabitants. With his unique vision, making no judgements and conveying no political message (a point he insists on), he presents men and women generally invisible to passersby, forcing us by the sheer power of his photographs to see these urban residents. The text is by Michel Draguet, and Andres Serrano himself talks about his approach, the two series and the specific qualities of each. Text in English, French and Dutch.
"Noise is a model of cultural historiography. . . . In its general theoretical argument on the relations of culture to economy, but also in its specialized concentration, Noise has much that is of importance to critical theory today." SubStance"For Attali, music is not simply a reflection of culture, but a harbinger of change, an anticipatory abstraction of the shape of things to come. The book's title refers specifically to the reception of musics that sonically rival normative social orders. Noise is Attali's metaphor for a broad, historical vanguardism, for the radical soundscapes of the western continuum that express structurally the course of social development." EthnomusicologyJacques Attali is the author of numerous books, including Millennium: Winners and Losers in the Coming World Order and Labyrinth in Culture and Society.
An exhaustive biography of the man still considered the conscience
of the nation of India, this exploration of Mohandas Gandhi's life
stretches from his childhood among the Gujarati merchants, through
his time as a student in England, his years as a lawyer in South
Africa, and his return to the Indian subcontinent and subsequent
anticolonialist and nonviolent activities, to, ultimately, his
assassination in 1948. Attali avoids both hagiography and hatchet
job, presenting rather an objective, complete portrait of a man who
has influenced leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King
Jr., and Nelson Mandela, but who was not without his own weaknesses
Never has the world offered more promise for the future and been more fraught with dangers. Attali analyses the past and pinpoints nine distinct periods of human history, each with its world centre of power and prestige. He also predicts what the tenth will bring by the end of this century.
In May 1990, forty countries, together with the European Economic Community and the European Investment Bank, signed the Agreement establishing the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. This book analyses the Agreement, concentrating on the three main areas relevant to the activities of the EBRD: its financing, its operations, and its organisation and management. The EBRD will be a unique institution, charged with facilitating Eastern Europe's transition to a market economy.
