            Lead in Modern and Contemporary Art is the first edited volume to critically examine uses of lead as both material and cultural signifier in modern and contemporary art. The book analyzes the work of a diverse group of artists working in Europe, the Middle East, and North America..., and takes into account the ways in which gender, race, and class can affect the cultural perception of lead. A distinguished group of international contributors from various fields, both established and early in their careers, explore lead's relevance from a number of perspectives, including art history, technical art history, art criticism and curatorial studies. Drawing on current art historical concerns with materiality, this volume builds on recent exhibitions and scholarship that reconsider the role of materials in shaping artistic meaning, thus giving a central relevance to the object and its physicality.

            Art and the Dynamics of Circulation, Suppression, and Censorship, which represents a significant contribution to the literature on art censorship, is varied in terms of subjects, authorial voices, and disciplinary methods. At issue are governmental restrictions and discursive eff...ects, such as erasure and distortion resulting from institutional policies, interpretive methods, and canonical processes. Considerations range from death and violence to race, sexuality, disability, immigration, labor, and cultural destruction/re-construction. Geographic focus includes Africa, Argentina, China, Germany, Mexico, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The text models a shift in how censorship is discursively framed, as contributors consider shifting contexts, values, and constituent needs through which contested works of art move into and out of circulation and point to the complexities involved in assessing determinants and consequences.

            Pain is whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever he says it does - Margo Mccaffrey 1968. The catalogue Beyond the Pain, published for the exhibition of the same name at Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, addresses approaches to conquering pain within the visual art...s. Twelve renowned national and international artists demonstrate how negative physical and psychological experiences can be transformed into a positive attitude to life, and contributions from academics complement and discuss the overcoming of pain. The reception of art, just like the experience of pain, is as much informed by cultural-societal norms as it is a profoundly individual experience; to this end contemporary art is connected to a universal theme of humanity.

            Wonder has an established link to the history and philosophy of science. However, there is little acknowledgement of the relationship between the visual arts and wonder. This book presents a new perspective on this overlooked connection, allowing a unique insight into the role of... wonder in contemporary visual practice. Artists, curators and art theorists give accounts of their approach to wonder through the use of materials, objects and ways of exhibiting. These accounts not only raise issues of a particular relevance to the way in which we encounter our reality today but ask to what extent artists utilize the function of wonder purposely in their work.

            Wie prasentieren sich die konkurrierenden Parteien in den Wahlkampfen der wechselvollen Jahrzehnte zwischen 1949 und 1987? In allen Kampagnen ist das Medium Plakat omniprasent, das von Portrats des jeweiligen Spitzenkandidaten dominiert wird. Auf der Basis umfangreicher Archivrec...herchen weist die Autorin nach, dass die Gestaltungsstile zwischen dem Corporate Design der Parteien und den fur einzelne Kandidaten entwickelten, individuellen Mustern changieren. Ob sich dabei Trends der jeweils aktuellen Konsumwerbung abbilden oder welche Reflexe aus Tradition und zeitgenossischen Wahlkampfen in den USA wie Europa zu erkennen sind, beantwortet dieser politikhistorisch orientierte, bildwissenschaftliche Uberblick uber die visuelle Wahlkampffuhrung in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland vor 1989.
