Derek Jarmans Garden is the last book Jarman ever wrote. It is a fitting memorial to a brilliant and greatly loved artist and film maker who, against all odds, made a breathtaking garden in the most inhospitable of places the flat, bleak, often desolate expanse of shingle overlooked by the Dungeness nuclear power station. Here is Jarmans own record of how the garden evolved, from its earliest beginnings in 1986 to the last year of his life. More than 150 photographs by his friend Howard Sooley capture the garden at all its different stages and at every season of the year, revealing its complex geometrical plan, magical stone circles and the beautiful and bizarre scupltures. We also catch glimpses of Jarman at work on the garden. This beautiful book will appeal to all those who love gardens and gardening, as well as the legions of admirers of this extraordinary man.

Das Wesen der Kunst London in der nahen Zukunft: durch den Klimawandel herrschen dort jetzt beinahe tropische Verhältnisse. Die Menschheit hat den Krebs besiegt, aber in der Folge ist die Lebenserwartung drastisch gesunken. Vor allem die Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Gentechnik prägen das Leben auf der Erde: Häuser, Maschinen, selbst Raumschiffe sind künstliche Lebensformen, und sogar die Bildung wird über gentechnisch veränderte Viren direkt im Gehirn gespeichert. Die junge Milena ist immun gegen diese Viren, aber eine der talentiertesten Musikerinnen ihrer Zeit. Zusammen mit ihrer Freundin Rolfa, deren Erbgut so verändert wurde, dass sie es in den eisigen Temperaturen am Nordpol aushält, arbeitet sie an einer Oper, als sie vom Consensus, einer KI, die das Land regiert, kontaktiert wird. Nach und nach findet Milena heraus, dass der Konsens aus den aufgezeichneten Gedankenmustern von Millionen von Kindern besteht – und dass die KI große Angst hat. Milena setzt alles daran, der Maschine zu helfen ...

This volume brings together dynamic perspectives on the concept of liveness in the performing arts, engaging with the live through the particular analytical focus of audiences and experience. The status and significance of the live in performance has become contested: perceived as variously as a marker of ontological difference, a promotional slogan, or a mystical evocation of cultural value. Moving beyond debates about the relationship between the live and the mediated, this collection considers what we can know and say about liveness in terms of processes of experiencing and processes of making. Drawing together contributions from theatre, music, dance, and performance art, it takes an interdisciplinary approach in asking not what liveness is, but how it matters and to whom. The book invites readers to consider how liveness is produced through processes of audiencing - as spectators bring qualities of (a)liveness into being through the nature of their attention - and how it becomes materialized in acts of performance, acts of making, acts of archiving, and acts of remembering. Theoretical chapters and practice-based reflections explore liveness, eventness and nowness as key concepts in a range of topics such as affect, documentation, embodiment, fandom, and temporality, showing how the relationship between audience and event is rarely singular and more often malleable and multiple. With its focus on experiencing liveness, this collection will be of interest to disciplines including performance, audience and cultural studies, visual arts, cinema, and sound technologies.

In 1986 the controversial film-maker Derek Jarman discovered he was HIV positive, and decided to make a garden at his cottage on the bleak coast of Dungeness, where he also wrote these journals. Looking back over his childhood, his coming out in the 1960s and his cinema career, the book is at once a volume of autobiography, a lament for a lost generation and a celebration of homosexuality.

This pioneering study of Jarman explores the life and work of a complex and enigmatic man with many talents: director, painter, designer, chronicler of English history, radical gay activist, student of mystical thought and celebrated gardener. What emerges is a compelling portrait of a major artist who, like a latter-day William Blake, was patriotic and steeped in English life but acutely aware of the reality of social injustice and prejudice - especially in 80s Britain - which he cogently and angrily depicted in his films.

Words are the oxygen of corporate identity. With e-business making real the dream of one-to-one marketing, corporate branding can no longer be one-dimensional. A brand needs to live, to speak, to communicate in this forum of connectivity. Customers are no longer passive listeners of corporate messages. They are communication partners involved in an interactive process.
