Rhetoric, Remembrance, and Visual Form

Sighting Memory

This volume offers a multifaceted investigation of intersections among visual and memorial forms in modern art, politics, and society. The question of the relationships among images and memory is particularly relevant to contemporary society, at a time when visually-based technologies are increasingly employed in both grand and modest efforts to preserve the past amid rapid social change. The chapters in this book provide valuable insights concerning not only how memories may be seen (or sighted) in visual form but also how visual forms constitute noteworthy material sites of memory. The collection addresses this central theme with a wealth of interdisciplinary and international approaches, featuring conventional scholarly as well as artistic works from such disciplines as rhetoric and communication, art and art history, architecture, landscape studies, and more, by contributors from around the globe.

Custer on Canvas

Representing Indians, Memory, and Violence in the New West

The 1876 events known as Custer’s Last Stand, Battle of Little Big Horn, or Battle of Greasy Grass have been represented over 1000 times in various artistic media, from paintings to sculpture to fast food giveaways. Norman Denzin shows how these representations demonstrate the changing perceptions—often racist—of Native America by the majority culture, juxtaposed against very different readings shown in works composed by Native American artists. Consisting of autobiographical reminiscences, historical description, artistic representations, staged readings, and snippets of documents, this multilayered performance ethnography examines questions of memory, race, and violence against Native America, as symbolized by the changing interpretations of General Custer and his final battle.

wort und Bild fügen die Autoren in einer neuen Sicht zu einem instruktiven Diagrammkonzept zusammen. Diagramme sind Amalgame des Erkennens, aber auch, um als Erkenntnismittel verständlich zu werden, innerweltlich vorfindbare Gegenstände, mit denen kognitiv gearbeitet wird. Diagrammatisches Denken eröffnet Querverweise und ermöglicht so eine relationale, vom Erkennenden aktiv betriebene Urteilsbildung.

Our America

The Latino Presence in American Art

""On the one hand, the affirmation that Latino art is American art is simply a fact. Latino artists are American by birth, citizenship, residence, education, experience, and even sacrifice-a factor made clear by the large number of Latino artists that have served in the United States armed forces. On the other hand, the statement poses a challenge to the ways in which we traditionally think about what constitutes American art."-E. Carmen RamosIs Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists-those of Latin American descent and heritage-express their relationship to American art, history, and culture.Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the "recycled" films of Raphael Montaänez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Melesio "Mel" Casas, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Margarita Cabrera, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernâandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jimâenez, Ana Mendieta, Pepâon Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodri;guez, and John Valadez, among many others.Author and curator E. Carmen Ramos is the Smithsonian American Art Museum's curator of latino art. She has organized numerous shows, including the fifth biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York City in 2007.Dr. Tomâas Ybarra-Frausto, the "grandfather" of this subject, and formerly associate director for creativity and culture at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, has written and published extensively on US/latino cultural issues"--

Ein junger Mann kehrt nach einigen Jahren in Amerika heim nach Lagos in Nigeria, an den Ort seiner Kindheit, den er vor vielen Jahren verlassen hat. Er kommt bei Verwandten unter, trifft alte Freunde, lässt sich durch die Straßen treiben. Lagos ist anstrengend und korrupt, Verheißung und Zumutung in einem, voller Geschichten von spiritueller Größe und Verkommenheit. Jede Nacht ist ein vergeblicher Versuch, Ruhe zu finden. Und jeder Tag ein Spiegel, in dem er sich selbst immer klarer sieht. Soll er bleiben oder fliehen? In Teju Coles leuchtenden Sätzen, in denen eine große, gebrochene Liebe zum Ausdruck kommt, entsteht das poetische Porträt eines bedrückten Landes und der größten Metropole in Afrika.
