La revista internacional de estudios sobre Baudrillard abre la convocatoria para el envío de artículos acerca de Baudrillard y la política:
A number of conflicting political epithets have been attached to the name Jean Baudrillard: Maoist, neo-conservative, neo-Marxist, post-Marxist, anarcho-primitivist, postmodernist, ultra-leftist, nouveaux philosophe, situationist, aristocrat, 68er, nihilist, Gnostic, relativist, reactionary romantic, anti-feminst, and so on.

Inspired by Sontag’s compelling narrative, this collection of essays addresses the representation of unsettling subject matter (war, political conflict, crime, executions, etc) in a variety of visual media.
Our specific focus in The Dark Spectacle is the important role played by space in the depiction of shocking and horrifying events. This volume raises, but is not limited to, the following questions: Do images of horror generate documents, or do they create works of art? Are those unsettling images allowed to be beautiful? Does their beauty drain “attention from the sobering subject?” Do these images serve as a call to arms? Does their proliferation, in addition to their beauty, make the viewer withdraw?
The Dark Spectacle is intended as a multidisciplinary forum and welcomes submissions (text and images) from scholars and artists working in various fields. Leer el resto de esta entrada »
