9780857455147: Images of Power and the Power of Images: Control, Ownership, and Public Space (Space and Place)

Real places and events are constructed and used to symbolize abstract formulations of power and authority in politics, corporate practice, the arts, religion, and community. By analyzing the aesthetics of public space in contexts both mundane and remarkable, the contributors examine the social relationship between public and private activities that impart meaning to groups of people beyond their individual or local circumstances. From a range of perspectives-anthropological, sociological, and socio-cultural-the contributors discuss road-making in Peru, mass housing in Britain, an unsettling traveling exhibition, and an art fair in London; we explore the meaning of walls in Jerusalem, a Zen garden in Japan, and religious themes in Europe and India. Literally and figuratively, these situations influence the ways in which ordinary people interpret their everyday worlds. By deconstructing the taken for- granted definitions of social value (democracy, equality, individualism, fortune), the authors reveal the ideological role of imagery and imagination in a globalized political context.

About the Author:

Judith Kapferer is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Bergen, Norway. She is the author of Being All Equal (1996) and the editor of The Arts and the State: Articulating Power and Subversion (2008). She has written numerous journal articles in the sociological fields of education, community, the arts, and culture, currently focusing on access to the arts in remote places.

Review:

The relationship between historical studies and psychoanalysis remains an open debate that is full of tension, in both a positive and a negative sense. In particular, the following question has not been answered satisfactorily: what distinguishes a psychoanalytically oriented study of historical realities from a historical psychoanalysis? Skepticism and fear of collaboration dominate on both sides. Initiating a productive dialogue between historical studies and psychoanalysis seems to be plagued by ignorance and, at times, a sense of helplessness. Interdisciplinary collaborations are rare. Empirical research, formulation of theory, and the development of methods are essentially carried out within the conventional disciplinary boundaries. This volume undertakes to overcome these limitations by combining psychoanalytical and historical perspectives and thus exploring the underlying 'unconscious' dimensions and by informing academic and nonacademic forms of historical memory. Moreover, it puts special emphasis on transgenerational forms of remembrance, on the notion of trauma as a key concept in this field, and on case studies that point the way to further research.

Descrizione libro Berghahn Books, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The commoditizing of the arts and popular entertainment is evidence of how the arts are seen as epiphenomenal and peripheral to the real world. Aspects of the everyday are obscured and confounded in order to mythologize them and build authoritative pictures of so-called dominant values (family, community and nation, industry, fairness and equality) that bespeak pride and confidence in the social order. It is the aim of this volume to deconstruct and unsettle some of these constructed myths of social value. The contributors - from a range of sociological, anthropological and socio-cultural fields - explore a number of subjects ranging from an art trade festival, road-making in Peru, and mass housing to dividing walls and military operations in Jerusalem, and a Zen garden. The images and use of public space that they analyze represent political and social power in societies still caught in structures of inequality often taken for granted. By engaging a critique of contemporary cultural phenomena, they reveal the ideological role of imagery and imagination in a globalized context. Codice libro della libreria AAN9780857455147
