In Chroma, Derek Jarman explains the use of colour in Medieval painting through the Renaissance to the modernists and draws on the great colour theorists from Pliny to Leonardo. He also talks about the meaning of colours in literature, science, philosophy, psychology, religion and alchemy. The colours on Jarman's palette are mixed with memory and insight to create an evocative and highly personal work.

This highly sensitive and beautifully written book looks closely at the way contemporary Western artists negotiate death, both as personal experience and in the wider community. Townsend discusses but moves beyond the 'spectacle of death' in work by artists such as Damien Hirst to see how mortality - in particular the experience of other people's death - brings us face to face with profound ethical and even political issues. He looks at personal responses to death in the work of artists as varied as Francis Bacon, Tracey Emin and Derek Jarman, whose film 'Blue' is discussed here in depth. Exploring the last body of work by the the Kentucky-based photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard, and Jewish American installation artist Shimon Attie's powerful memorial work for the community of Aberfan, Townsend considers death in light of the injunction to 'love they neighbour'.

This extensively illustrated book examines Greenaway's vision from a number of perspectives and traces a shift of sensibility in his work. David Pascoe examines not only Greenaway's films, but also his paintings, exhibitions and installations. "[Pascoe] tirelessly explicates the numerology and mytho-mania that are the film-maker's organising principles"—The Guardian "A supremely intelligent, utterly tuned-in, definitive exploration of the ultimate British auteur's back catalogue, helpfully illustrated at every opportunity. . . illuminating"—Empire

This book analyses the way that HIV/AIDS is often narrativised and represented in contemporary world cultures, as well as the different strategies of remembrance deployed by different (sub)cultural groups affected by the illness. Through a close study of a variety of cultural texts; including cinema, literature, theatre, art and photography amongst others, it demonstrates the trajectory that such narratives and representations have undergone since the advent of the ‘discovery’ of the disease in the 1980s. Acknowledging the central - yet often overlooked - role that cultural products have played in the construction of public opinion towards the condition itself and those who suffer it, this ground-breaking volume focuses on a variety of narratives, as well as strategies of coping with HIV/AIDS that have emerged across the globe. Bringing together research on the UK, North and South America, Africa and China, it provides rich textual analyses of the ways in which the HIV positive body has been portrayed in contemporary culture, with attention to the differences between specific national contexts, whilst keeping in view a space of commonality amongst the different experiences reflected in such texts. As such, it will be of interest to social scientists and scholars of cultural and media studies, concerned with cultural production and representations of the body and sickness.

Aber sie sind viel mehr: Unser Gehirn arbeitet dann auf Hochtouren, um uns die richtigen Entscheidungen zu liefern. Malcolm Gladwell erklärt die Macht dieses Augenblicks und zeigt, wie wir unsere verborgene Intelligenz trainieren und besser nutzen können.

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.

'Is there any better gift for a writer than the chance to put a book together of writing by others that she or he has loved? Is there any truer gift to a reader from any writer?' Ali Smith This is a collection of what Ali Smith has loved over the course of her reading life, in her twenties, as a teenager, a child. A book full of pieces from wonderful writers - Plath, Grassic Gibbon, Spark, Morgan, Grace Paley, Yeats, Atwood. But also full of lesser known writers about which readers will be very happy to hear, like Joseph Roth, only just gaining proper reputation status now, Clarice Lispector, the Brazilian genius who's far too underpublished here, like Leonora Carrington, the socialite who ran away to be a surrealist, and Armando, the artist whose writings are beautiful and lucid. Full of pieces by brand new wonderful writers; full of surprises, like how good Lee Miller was at journalism, how beautifully Dilys Powell writes about Greece. Full of unexpected things - turning the page to find the lyric of 'It's only a Paper Moon', or Beryl the Peril, or The Little House on the Prairie. Throughout, each piece is edited so as to read discretely, and arranged into a book which will reveal more about the writer who's edited it than a hundred press interviews ever would. This book is a classic about the sheer love of reading that every real reader knows.

"Sally Potter has always been Britain's most independent director: as a feminist filmmaker, a leading light of the BFI Production Board generation, an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and a pioneer of digital cinema. Drawing on exclusive access to archival materials and in-depth interviews, The Cinema of Sally Potter: A Politics of Love opens up vivid historical, political and cultural vistas to give the first full account of an extraordinary career. From Thriller, which galvanized the new feminist cinema in 1979, to Rage (2009), a digital docu-fiction about information in the age of globalisation, Potter has refashioned cinematic looking and listening through her attention to what dominant culture neglects and suppresses: labour, performance, beauty, poetry, listening and the spirit of place. This volume argues that, by putting the unseen on screen, Potter's films fill the viewer with wonder and desire, enacting the possibilities of cinema as love." --Book Jacket.
