    • One or the Other

      Kossoff, Adam (Adam Kossoff, 2017-12)
      One Or The Other is an exploration of the paradoxical relationship between the homeland and the creation of a nation state in Israel. The film argues that the long distance nationalism of Western diasporic communities has had more influence than responsibility and the creation of the Palestinian Other is a product of the blindness of nationalism. Combining home movies and images of contemporary Israel, it simultaneously presents different historical periods; time and place being central to the theme of home and the homelands.

    • “Our observations should not be disunited”: Collaborative Women’s Travel Writing, 1780-1840

      Colbert, Benjamin (Universite Blaise-Pascal, France, 2016-03)
      Before 1780, only ten books of travel by women had been published in Britain and Ireland, all by single authors if we discount the role of translators (two of the ten were translations from the French)1. After 1780, as the Database of Women’s Travel Writing (2014) demonstrates with statistical accuracy, women for the first time established themselves as a continuous presence in the travel writing market, increasing their output from 5 titles in the 1780s to 74 in the 1830s2. These figures include diverse travel genres, principally narratives, guidebooks, and letterpress plate books, but also travel-based storybooks for young audiences, digests, and collections. For the first time, we begin to see female travel writers experimenting with authorial roles such as co-author, contributor, editor, translator, abridger, compiler, letterpress writer, and illustrator. In other instances, women’s travel writing finds its way into print, sometime posthumously, only through the intervention of others, editors who overlay their own language, perspectives, and agendas, a form of collaboration to be sure, but not one that embodies the joint production some might associate with the term. Of the 204 titles covered by the Database, 47 (or 23 %) involve multiple authorial relationships, though only seven of these are jointly written works where authors have coordinated their writings with the aim of publication. This article and the taxonomic checklist that follows it explore in more detail the nature of and motivations behind authorial partnerships in the light of particular instances of them, addressing fundamental questions: What types of collaboration are there, and what are the conditions of co-writing? How is joint production presented textually and paratextually? How do men and women collaborators negotiate the gendered spaces and expectations of travel and travel writing?
    • Out of this World: exploring embodiment and space through artistic processes and practice

      Doyle, Denise (Routledge, 2015-02)
      This article considers the artistic exploration of embodiment at the frontiers and edges of space. With a focus on both outer space and virtual space, the article explores the practices employed by artists who have taken on a virtual body as a vehicle to explore the virtual space of virtual worlds and those artists aiming to free their physical bodies of gravity and experience weightlessness in the artistic exploration of outer space. Perhaps the myths and realities of both astronauts (or those who have experienced their bodies in zero gravity) and avatars are one and the same – that of bodies travelling in unknown spaces and time. The article aims to reveal the common threads of experiences of embodiment and space drawing together issues of the weightless, the virtual and the immaterial body.
    • Painting, the Virtual, and the Celluloid Frame

      Harris, Simon J.; Grimshaw, Mark (Oxford University Press, 2014-02-27)
      This chapter discusses and progresses through an aesthetic enquiry into a relationship between the virtual and the actual surface of painting. It is through the inherent temporality of both painting and cinema that the notion of a dynamic duration is interrogated. At the core of this investigative methodology the philosophies of both Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze are employed to examine how duration in painting can be experienced outside of the static recollection. Fundamentally this follows Deleuze’s seminal writing about the cinematic and the function of the image in relation to time. The author accepts Deleuze’s invitation to employ his concepts as a toolbox for dynamism. Thus a model is assembled in which the notion of the “recollection-image” and its relationship to the temporality of the “movement-image” is developed through the potential of the figural as a space between the figurative and the abstract in painting.

    • Paper Shadows

      Sherwin, Guy (Studio Kura, 2016-10)
      We are happy to announce an exhibition Paper Shadows 2016 by Guy Sherwin, as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura. This will be shown as a part of Itoshima International Art Festival 2016, Itoshima Arts Farm. Guy Sherwin is an artist based in London who works with 16mm film and other forms of moving image. He studied painting before becoming involved with the London Film-Makers Co-operative. The work is about elemental ideas of form, pattern, light and rhythm, either shot with a camera or hand-made directly on film. The films are sometimes shown in galleries but more often presented as projection events, using several projectors and live interventions. For these he collaborates with Lynn Loo (also on the residency) and together they have toured programmes of live cinema internationally. Here are some words from the artist himself. An installation made for the missing Shoji screens in the large tatami room at House 2. The projected images were recorded in the same space at different times of day and night. The aim is to (re)direct viewers attention to the presence of space and time and is a continuation of my previous work.
    • Park Products

      Böhm, Kathrin (2004)
      A series of collaboratively produced products using resources from Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park London presented in a mobile market stall and exchanged for small tasks to be done around the park. Working from positions of art and architecture, the project set out to design a new prototype for cultural exchange within public space by asking the following questions: What cultural, social and material resources are associated with the Serpentine Gallery? Can the production of cultural products and services find sustenance through non-monetary communication-based exchange? Strategies included collaborations with product designers on the design and production of artefacts made from material supplied by the Royal Park ground staff. This led to relationships and negotiations with involved institutions on issues of intellectual copyright, project evaluation and project legacy. The project engaged the public through principals of informal economics; resulting in the exchange of park-labour for products plus discussions on art/architecture collaboration, cultural production and public participation.

    • Peas, Parsnips and Patriotism: Images of the Garden in films of the Second World War

      HOCKENHULL, STELLA; Andrews, Eleanor; Pheasant-Kelly, Fran (Routeledge, 2016)
      This book examines the ways in which the house appears in films and the modes by which it moves beyond being merely a backdrop for action. Specifically, it explores the ways that domestic spaces carry inherent connotations that filmmakers exploit to enhance meanings and pleasures within film. Rather than simply examining the representation of the house as national symbol, auteur trait, or in terms of genre, contributors study various rooms in the domestic sphere from an assortment of time periods and from a diversity of national cinemas—from interior spaces in ancient Rome to the Chinese kitchen, from the animated house to the metaphor of the armchair in film noir.
    • Philosophizing the Everyday: Revolutionary Praxis and the Fate of Cultural Theory

      Roberts, John (London: Pluto Press, 2006)
      This book develops a genealogical critique of the cultural concept of the “everyday” from Freud and the Russian revolution (where it became crucial to notions of revolutionary cultural change) through Lukács, Benjamin and Lefebvre to Barthes, the Situationists and de Certeau.
    • Philospher

      Penzin, Alexei; Correale, Danilo (Archive Books, 2016-02)
      I would like to outline the problem of sleep in a theoretical framework, sort of from ground zero. So we can ask a question: what actually is sleep? Not in terms of medicine or in terms of biology, but in terms of its belonging to our human existence. The answer is not so obvious, because animals also sleep. But in the case of humans (a very specific, anomalous animal), sleep is transformed. And this is not just an elementary biological fact; both sleep and wakefulness have cultural, social, philosophical and political dimensions, in my view.

      Background: Physical inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death (1) and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Patients with rheumatic diseases (RDs), especially rheumatoid arthritis (RA), report low cardiorespiratory fitness levels (2), placing them at an increased risk of premature mortality and CVD.

    • Playin(g) iterability and iteratin(g) play: Tradition and innovation in jazz standards

      Paradiso, Francesco (JEMI Association, 2017-02-01)
      This study draws a comparative framework between deconstructive reading of texts and jazz standards. It will be argued that both are defined by the constant play of tradition and innovation. On the one hand, the repetition of a set of rules and dominant understanding of texts/tunes that generates tradition. On the other hand, invention and improvisation that take on that tradition and generate innovation. The act of reading/playing becomes also an act of invention/improvisation that manifests a constant tension between the old that is handed down through writing/recording and the new that is generated by the reader/musician. Cette étude propose d’établir une comparaison entre la lecture déconstructrice des textes et celle des standards de jazz. Il s’agira de montrer que celles-ci se caractérisent par un jeu constant entre tradition et innovation, avec d’un côté, la répétition d’un ensemble de règles et de la lecture dominante des textes/compositions qui génère une tradition ; et de l’autre côté, l’invention ou l’improvisation qui, en dépassant cette tradition, crée du nouveau. Ainsi, l’acte de lire/jouer devient un acte d’invention/improvisation, se caractérisant par une tension constante entre l’ancien, transmis à travers l’écriture/enregistrement, et le nouveau, produit par le lecteur/musicien.
    • Podcasts: A Case Study of the use of Podcasting in Curriculum Delivery

      Spencer, Steve; Cooper, Steve (University of Wolverhampton, 2007)
      Over a number of years there have been research projects in the Higher Education Sector of the UK and elsewhere exploring the use of mobile computers - PDAs for curriculum materials, communication with students etc. A significant drawback with these undertakings was the high cost and limited ownership of PDAs among students – such that it was necessary to obtain funding that would enable research teams to provide students with a PDA - usually as a short-term loan, in order to facilitate the projects. Other issues of file size, formats and file compatibility continue to restrict the reach of these developments. With the launch of MP3 players and their appearance on campus in large numbers, an opportunity presented itself to revisit the use of audio files for curriculum delivery. Audio-visual materials have a long history of incorporation into course content and it is possible to find tape archives and video footage of lecturers who have experimented with these formats. It is clear, however, that there is at present a renewed interest and level of activity in the development and delivery of teaching materials through multimedia techniques.
    • Popular Romanticism? Publishing, Readership and the Making of Literary History

      Colbert, Benjamin (Palgrave Macmillan, 2002)
      This book: These essays explore the remarkable expansion of publishing from 1750 to 1850 which reflected the growth of literacy and the diversification of the reading public. Experimentation with new genres, methods of advertising, marketing and dissemination, forms of critical reception and modes of access to writing are also examined in detail. This collection represents a new wave of critical writing extending cultural materialism beyond its accustomed concern with historicizing the words on the page into the economics of literature and the investigation of neglected areas of print culture.
