Leon Golub: Dog
Leon Golub
2915359083
February 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Dog is an intermix of dogs, art, and politics that views dogs as myth, symbol, aesthetic musings, and in scenes of casual and/or extreme tensions. Leon Golub chose visuals that are jittered and visually and informationally fractured, concrete and irrational. According to critic J. G. Ballard, this final book in Golub's career, since his recent death, "challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions." Dog explores what the world and human life could be once humanism is put aside--and all through images of dogs: homeless dogs, bondage dogs, running dogs, atomic dogs, and assorted canine-themed writings. A small, compact, and thought-provoking manual. Afterword by Hans-Ulrich Obrist. Paperback, 5.5 x 8.75 in./96 pgs / Illustrated throughout.

Leon Golub: Don't Tread on Me!, Drawings: 1947-2004

Paperback

Book Description
Leon Golub is best known for his large-scale paintings of violence and the abuse of power, scenes as colossal in brutality as they are in size. But, throughout his long career, Golub was a prolific draftsman as well. With subjects ranging from the classical to the erotic, and media ranging from oil sticks, to conte crayons, to inks, to acrylics, Golub's drawings interrogate the condition of our world. His first major drawing period began when he was a student in the 1940s. He began to articulate the figure in motion as he embraced Graeco-Roman sculpture, and in recent years (2000-2004) his drawings became more informal and spontaneous, with subjects ranging from aggression to erotic fun and games. Don't Tread on Me! features beautiful color reproductions and is the first book dedicated exclusively to Golub's...


Leon Golub: Echoes of the Real
Jon Bird

October 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Now in his late 70s, Leon Golub is a leading exponent of history painting – painting as a narrative, symbolic expression of global, social and political relations and of the realities of power. In this book, published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition traveling to Ireland, England and the United States, Jon Bird examines the artist's work from the classically influenced early paintings through depictions of conflict and masculine aggression to compelling images of the last two decades. Despite the widespread critical attention his work has received, the range and extent of his practice and its complex interweaving of the iconographic traditions of both high and popular art have not been properly examined. As a history painter, Golub is acutely aware of the antecedents to his own imagery and symbolism;...


Keeping Good Time (H): Reflections on Knowledge, Power and People
Avery F. Gordon
1594510148
March 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Avery Gordon's first book, Ghostly Matters, was widely acclaimed as a work of striking sociological imagination and social theory. Keeping Good Time, her much anticipated second book, brings together essays by Gordon that were "written to be read aloud." Her eloquent voice in this book further establishes her place among literary sociological writers of a new generation. Keeping Good Time explores the meaning of being a politically engaged scholar during deeply troubled times. The book's essays consider the role of education during war time, the costs of imprisonment and repression, the power of utopianism in an age of globalization, the complexities of gendered racism, the politics of culture, and the practice of theory as it emerges from everyday life. Keeping Good Time will be of great interest to activists,...

Nancy Spero: The War Series 1966-1970
Nancy Spero (Illustrator)
8881584573
February 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Galvanized by the political events of the Vietnam War, Nancy Spero dedicated herself for five years to creating a group of gouache paintings on paper, entitled The War Series. In these works, Spero not only expressed her rage at the violence and oppression of the war, but also introduced many of the images and themes that would continue to find their place in her work, and anticipated the post-modern aesthetic of fracture, dissonance, and collage. This volume is the first to analyze The War Series in depth, and its publication could not, unfortunately, be more timely. Essays by Leon Golub and Robert Storr. Hardcover, 8.25 x 10.5 in./64 pgs / 34 color and 9 b & w.


Nearest Star: The Surprising Science of Our Sun

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Taking advantage of the increased attention as the sun reaches the peak of its 11-year sunspot cycle, Harvard-Smithsonian astrophysicist Golub and Williams College astronomy professor Pasachoff deliver a clear, detailed and broadly informative overview of the scientific study of our "nearest star" and its effects on our planet. Other recent books cover some of the same territory in more detail (the energy production and internal structure of the sun and other stars in Stardust by John and Mary Gribbin and The Magic Furnace by Marcus Chown; the vulnerability of modern technology to intense solar activity in The 23rd Cycle by Sten Odenwald), but this book shines in its discussion of the properties of the sun's turbulent outer layers (chromosphere, photosphere and corona). It provides space- and astronomy-loving...
