Interviews are becoming an increasingly dominant research method in art, craft, design, fashion and textile history. This groundbreaking text demonstrates how artists, writers and historians deploy interviews as creative practice, as 'history', and as a means to insights into the micro-practices of arts production and identity that contribute to questions of 'voice', authenticity, and authorship. Through a wide range of case studies from international scholars and practitioners across a variety of fields, the volume maps how oral history interviews contribute to a relational practice that is creative, rigorous and ethically grounded. Oral History in the Visual Arts is essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners across the visual arts.

From the 1990s onwards the 'ethnographic turn in contemporary art' has generated intense dialogues between anthropologists, artists and curators. While ethnography has been both generously and problematically re-appropriated by the art world, curation has seldom caught the conceptual attention of anthropologists. Based on two years of participant-observation in Mexico City, Tarek Elhaik addresses this lacuna by examining the concept-work of curatorial platforms and media artists. Taking his cue from ongoing critiques of Mexicanist aesthetics, and what Roger Bartra calls 'the post-Mexican condition', Elhaik conceptualises curation less as an exhibition-oriented practice within a national culture, than as a figure of care and an image of thought animating a complex assemblage of inter-medial practices, from experimental cinema and installations to curatorial collaborations. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze and Paul Rabinow, the book introduces the concept of the 'Incurable-Image,' an antidote to our curatorial malaise and the ethical substance for a post-social anthropology of images.

Excerpt from Genie und Vererbung Die Bucherei hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, einerseits dem deutschen Publikum die Hauptwerke der auslandischen Philosophie und Soziologie in guten Ubersetzungen nahezubringen, andererseits auch wertvolle deutsche Originalarbeiten in ihren Rahmen aufzunehmen. Wie ihr Erscheinen von den Fachgenossen aufgenommen wurde, zeigt eine Zuschirift Rudolf Euckens der dem Verleger folgendermassen schreibt: "Ich wunsche von Herzen Gluck zu den bedeutenden wissenschaftlichen Unternehmungen, die sie beginnen. Ich glaube, dass hier in Wahrheit eine Lucke besteht, welche dringend der Ausfullung bedarf: wir Deutschen haben zu wenig Beziehung zu den inneren geistigen Bewegungen der anderen Kulturvolker, und wir konnten daraus doch manches gewinnen." Es sollen ausser deutschen Philosophen zunachst die bedeutendsten Vertreter der auslandischen Philosophie mit charakteristischen Werken zu Worte kommen, daneben wird Ruck sieht darauf genommen, dass nicht nur fur den Fachmann interessante Werke zur Verdeutschung kommen, sondern auch solche, die fur ein grosseres philosophisch und soziologisch interessiertes Publikum Wert haben. Die beste Auskunft uber Plan und Ab sichten des Unternehmens gibt ein Blick auf die Titel der schon erschienenen und vorbereiteten Bande. Ein ausfuhrlicher Spezialprospekt uber die Gebiete Philosophie-Soziologie steht jederzeit umsonst zu Diensten.
