Tanya Leighton (ed.): Art and the Moving Image: A Critical Reader (2008)

The mutual fascination between art and cinema has  a great influence on contemporary culture. For the past fifty years, the love/hate affair between the two has triggered vital aesthetic, social and political responses that constantly renew the way we understand our age. This book traces the story from early spatial experiments with film and video technologies to the current widespread use of projected images in museums and galleries. Why has there been a turn to the cinematic in contemporary art? What happens to the moving image when it shifts from the black box to the white cube, when cinema is exhibited? How does this challenge the traditional mediums of film, painting and sculpture? Art and the Moving Image gathers together key texts including new, translated and previously unpublished essays by eminent writers and theorists including Giorgio Agamben, Beatriz Colomina, Serge Daney, Rosalind Krauss, Maurizio Lazzaratto, and Peter Wollen. It offers an essential introduction to the complex field of art and the projected image for both students and general readers.
