HASH(0x9edd43c0) von 5 Sternen provocative, revealing political and social-commentary art from around the world 27. September 2011
Von Henry Berry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"This book is an investigation of the interactions between politics, art, and activism" coming about in the political turmoil and confrontations of the 1960s employing happenings, performance art, film, collage, photography, graphics, irony, and body art. These and related techniques and styles assimilated into all sorts of following postmodern innovations, concepts, and perspectives continue to be employed for political statement and criticism and social commentary. The particular vein of public art familiar now in films including documentaries, magazines, graphic novels, and other media as well as visual art is exemplified by works of artists mostly from Europe, the United States, and Asia.

Images of bodies and atrocities among the works from each continent are disturbing. Such images always have the power to shock and provoke. Apart from persons who are always the ultimate victims of political violence, corporate malfeasance, and social prejudice, there are also images of politicians, consumer products such as computers and cars, iconic structures such as the Statue of Liberty, and housing, city streets, and other features of contemporary life in each case given an artistic touch to make a statement. Themes range from ecology, urban clutter, the addiction of consumer goods, the effects of change on traditional culture, and the pretenses and deceptions of politicians. Along with verisimilitude, collage, installation art, and other styles, humor and wryness appear too.

The subject matter of suffering, recognizable though distorted products, housing projects, environmental degradation, and such limit composition and conceptualization. Settings, costumes, and particulars change. But as the political art aims at the practical purpose of making a readily comprehensible point, usually a criticism, to a wide audience of average persons, it does not reach into the realm of the visionary, futuristic, or idiosyncratic. Readers see the range of ways artists who are political activists make use of preferred, proven techniques of this field of public art to bring attention to grievances and injustices.

Brilliant book. One that you must judge by its cover (and the cover photo is priceless). Beautiful works of art out there concerning the political problems of the world... and this books covers them. Also as an artist, I find that it can give a lot of inspiration.
HASH(0x9ed4424c) von 5 Sternen Art Challenging the System! 14. Juni 2011
Von artchick84 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
We still don't have a clue where Ai Weiwei, the Chinese artist is, and this book is a timely reminder of how important it is for artists to be engaged politically. There are great examples of how creatives work at challenging the system around them, always remaining critical and inquisitive. Not only in dictatorships, but also in so-called free and liberal countries. Really, really thought-provoking, I'd recommend it for anyone creative, in politics, or with an interest in either one.

I bought this as a required supplementary text for a college course. The large size of the book make the many examples of the artists' work vivid and easy to interpret.
