In the 1970s and 1980s Jewish cartoonists such as Will Eisner were some of the first artists to use the graphic novel as a way to explore their ethnicity. Although similar to their pop culture counterpart, the comic book, graphic novels presented weightier subject matter in more expensive packaging, which appealed to an adult audience and gained them credibility as a genre. The Jewish Graphic Novel is a lively, interdisciplinary collection of essays that addresses critically acclaimed works in this subgenre of Jewish literary and artistic culture. Featuring insightful discussions of notable figures in the industryùsuch as Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, and Joann Sfarùthe essays focus on the how graphic novels are increasingly being used in Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in America and abroad Featuring more than 85 illustrations, this collection is a compelling representation of a major postmodern ethnic and artistic achievement.

Der Balkan zwischen Ost und West

Mediale Bilder und kulturpolitische Prägungen


Author: Tanja Zimmermann

Category: Balkan Peninsula

Page: 504

Der Balkan ist nicht nur ein Produkt der kulturellen und politischen Imaginationen des Westens, sondern entstand vielmehr im Fadenkreuz der Blicke aus Ost und West. Als Zwischenraum bot er sich für die Übertragung unterschiedlicher kulturpolitischer Entwürfe eines 'dritten Raumes' an - vom Niemandsland bis zum jugoslawischen 'dritten Weg'. Die medialen Gestalten des Balkans zeigen den Übergang fester Stereotype in entfesselte, imaginäre Phantasmen. Die Autorin untersucht Balkan-Narrative in unterschiedlichen Medien seit dem Niedergang der philhellenischen Begeisterung 1830 bis zur post-jugoslawischen Periode.

Art and War

This is a truly encyclopedic survey of artists’ responses - both official and personal - to the horrors of war. 'Art and War' reveals the sheer diversity of artists’ portrayals of this most devastating aspect of the human condition - from the ‘heroic’ paintings of Benjamin West and John Singer Sargent to brutal and iconic works by artists from Goya to Picasso, and the equally oppositional work of Leon Golub, Nancy Spero and others who reacted with fury to the Vietnam War. Laura Brandon pays particular attention to work produced in response to World War I and World War II, as well as to more recent art and memorial work by artists as diverse as Barbara Kruger, Alfredo Jar and Maya Lin. She looks finally to the reactions of contemporary artists such as Langlands and Bell to the US invasion in 2001 of Afghanistan and the ‘War on Terror’.
