Ninety-Nine Stories of God , Hörbuch, Digital, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist Joy Williams has a one-of-a-kind gift for capturing both the absurdity and the darkness of everyday life. In Ninety-Nine Stories of God, she takes on one of mankind's most confounding preoccupations: the Supreme Being. This series of short, fictional vignettes explores our day-to-day interactions with an ever-elusive and arbitrary God. It's the Book of Common Prayer as seen through a looking glass - a powerfully vivid collection of seemingly random life moments. The figures that haunt these stories range from Kafka (talking to a fish) to the Aztecs, Tolstoy to Abraham and Sarah, O. J. Simpson to a pack of wolves. Most of Williams' characters, however, are like the rest of us: anonymous strivers and bumblers who brush up against God in the least expected places or go searching for him when he's standing right there. The Lord shows up at a hot-dog-eating contest, a demolition derby, a formal gala, and a drugstore, where he's in line to get a shingles vaccination. At turns comic and yearning, lyric and aphoristic, Ninety-Nine Stories of God serves as a pure distillation of one of our great artists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elisabeth Rodgers.

"Von Ferne. Bilder zur DDR" zeigt fotografische Bilder aus der und über die DDR. Zu sehen sind Arbeiten, für die sich Künstler fremde wie auch eigene Bilder (erneut) aneignen und für eine Neubetrachtung öffnen. Manche Arbeiten gehen über die Aneignung auf visueller Ebene hinaus, verschränken in medienübergreifenden Ansätzen Bild und Text, verwenden das eine als Gegenstück des anderen und umgekehrt.Die Bilder erzählen von Orten und Situationen, wie sie einst existierten. Doch stellt sich die Frage, welche Wirklichkeit ein Bild repräsentiert, zumal wenn zwischen den Bildern durch den künstlerischen Eingriff andere und neue Beziehungen hergestellt werden. Im Umgang mit dem visuellen Nachlass der DDR wollen nicht nur Spuren von Wirklichkeit aufgezeigt werden, die einer vergangenen Zeit entstammen: Es geht weniger um die Produktion von Bildern und ihr Potenzial, Ausschnitte aus Raum und Zeit zu fixieren, als vielmehr um verborgene Wissensvorräte und um ihre Vieldeutigkeit.Künstler / Artists: Tina Bara, Seiichi Furuya, Tamami Iinuma, Sven Johne, Jens Klein, Jürgen Kuttner, Christian Lange, Emanuel Mathias, Katrin Mayer, Simon Menner, Einar Schleef, Christine Schlegel, Joachim Schmid, Erasmus Schröter, Maya Schweizer, Gabriele Stötzer, Paul Alexander Stolle, Elisabeth Tonnard, Andreas Trogisch, Joerg Waehner, Ulrich WüstText: Michael Buhrs, Annett Gröschner, Vanessa Joan Müller, Sabine Schmid, Gabriele Stötzer, Christoph Tannert, u.a.

The Hungarians
32,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Hungarians is the most comprehensive, clear-sighted, and absorbing history ever of a legendarily proud and passionate but lonely people. Much of Europe once knew them as "child-devouring cannibals" and "bloodthirsty Huns." But it wasn't long before the Hungarians became steadfast defenders of the Christian West and fought heroic freedom struggles against the Tatars (1241), the Turks (16-18th centuries), and, among others, the Russians (1848-49 and 1956). Paul Lendvai tells the fascinating story of how the Hungarians, despite a string of catastrophes and their linguistic and cultural isolation, have survived as a nation-state for more than 1,000 years.Lendvai, who fled Hungary in 1957, traces Hungarian politics, culture, economics, and emotions from the Magyars' dramatic entry into the Carpathian Basin in 896 to the brink of the post-Cold War era. Hungarians are ever pondering what being Hungarian means and where they came from. Yet, argues Lendvai, Hungarian national identity is not only about ancestry or language but also an emotional sense of belonging. Hungary's famous poet-patriot, Sándor Petofi, was of Slovak descent, and Franz Liszt felt deeply Hungarian though he spoke only a few words of Hungarian. Through colorful anecdotes of heroes and traitors, victors and victims, geniuses and imposters, based in part on original archival research, Lendvai conveys the multifaceted interplay, on the grand stage of Hungarian history, of progressivism and economic modernization versus intolerance and narrow-minded nationalism.He movingly describes the national trauma inflicted by the transfer of the historic Hungarian heartland of Transylvania to Romania under the terms of the Treaty of Trianon in 1920--a trauma that the passing of years has by no means lessened. The horrors of Nazi and Soviet Communist domination were no less appalling, as Lendvai's restrained account makes clear, but are now part of history.An unforgettable blend of eminent readability, vibrant humor, and meticulous scholarship, The Hungarians is a book without taboos or prejudices that at the same time offers an authoritative key to understanding how and why this isolated corner of Europe produced such a galaxy of great scientists, artists, and entrepreneurs.Review:... [A] glorious, immensely readable book. (Economist)... A pleasure to read. . . . Mr. Lendvai has done a remarkable job. His book is easily the best history of Hungary in English. . . . What's remarkable is how many extraordinary individuals, admirable and otherwise, we come across in this small nation's history. Stephen Goode(Washington Times)... The writing of national histories is . . . justified by the erudition and intellectual brilliance of the [author]. To this one must add, as a special attraction, the charm, wit and healthy cynicism of The Hungarians. Istvan Deak(Times Literary Supplement)... [R]ewarding, entertaining, and well written. . . . [F]ar more substantial than the witty musings to be found, for example, in Luigi Barzini's The Italians. . . . No one who is interested in Hungary should miss reading this book. Nicolas Parsons(Hungarian Quarterly)... An outstanding storyteller. [Lendvai] not only presents scientifically based facts and analysis but also tells the reader a story. . .. A compact overview of Hungarian history, a wonderful collection of biographical sketches and a subtle description of the 'Hungarian temperament'. (e Zurcher Zeitung)... Excellently researched and masterfully constructed, this should become a standard work. . . . The book reads almost like a novel with historical background. . . . Most warmly recommended. (Die Presse)... An exhaustive history of the Hungarian people. . . . The author has written a sympathetic account of Hungarian history. Yet the book also exposes the blemishes along with the heroism. . . . For those interested in the history of a art of Europe that has been shrouded in mystery and cliché, it¹s a helpful handbook. Anne Gyulai(The Montreal Gazette)... It is history's destiny to stare helplessly as the past's effects on facts have them act no differently on our minds and bodies than do fictions. In his loving rendering of Hungary's troubled saga, Lendvai has shown us how our knowledge and memory are a tangle of both threads.

Who's Afraid of Conceptual Art?
35,12 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Whos Afraid of Conceptual Art? is a much-needed philosophical inquiry into these questions and more. Peter Goldie and Elisabeth Schellekens first address, and try to clear up, much of the puzzlement, frustration, irritation and resentment felt about conceptual art. Secondly, they use conceptual art to bring to life and to reformulate some of the main issues and theories in contemporary philosophical aesthetics. These problems include the way conceptual art challenges definitions of art, why it displaces epistemological and cognitive approaches to art, making it hard to say what we can know about art, if anything, and why it raises such thorny problems about artistic appreciation and interpretation. The book includes several illustrations of the work of celebrated conceptual artists to bring these issues and theories to life: Sol le Witt, Joseph Beuys, Joseph Kosuth, Bruce Nauman, Gilbert and George, Michael Craig Martin, and Jeremy Deller. Whos Afraid of Conceptual Art? is essential reading for students of philosophy, art and visual studies and anyone intrigued but perplexed by art in general.
