On museum visits, we pass by beautiful, well-preserved vases from ancient Greece—but how often do we understand what the images on them depict? In Image and Myth, Luca Giuliani tells the stories behind the pictures, exploring how artists of antiquity had to determine which motifs or historical and mythic events to use to tell an underlying story while also keeping in mind the tastes and expectations of paying clients. Covering the range of Greek style and its growth between the early Archaic and Hellenistic periods, Giuliani describes the intellectual, social, and artistic contexts in which the images were created. He reveals that developments in Greek vase painting were driven as much by the times as they were by tradition—the better-known the story, the less leeway the artists had in interpreting it. As literary culture transformed from an oral tradition, in which stories were always in flux, to the stability of written texts, the images produced by artists eventually became nothing more than illustrations of canonical works. At once a work of cultural and art history, Image and Myth builds a new way of understanding the visual culture of ancient Greece.

The History of Italian Opera marks the first time a team of scholars has worked together to investigate the entire Italian operatic tradition, rather than limiting its focus to major composers and their masterworks. Including both musicologists and historians of other arts, the contributors approach opera not only as a distinctive musical genre but also as a form of extravagant theater and a complex social phenomenon. This sixth volume in the series centers on the sociological and critical aspects of opera in Italy, considering the art in the context of an Italian literary and cultural canon rarely revealed in English and American studies. In its six chapters, contributors survey critics' changing attitudes toward opera over several centuries, trace the evolution of formal conventions among librettists, explore the historical relationships between opera and Italian literature, and examine opera's place in Italian popular and national culture. In perhaps the volume's most striking contribution, German scholar Carl Dahlouse offers his most important statement on the dramaturgy of opera.

Installationskunsten har gået sin sejrsgang verden over, og er her i det 21. århundrede en både vel- og anerkendt bestanddel af samtidskunsten. Med påvirkning fra og udveksling mellem billedkunst på den ene side og performanceteater på den anden befinder installationskunst sig – som bogens titel viser – netop i feltet mellem billede og scene. I Installation Art: Between Image and Stage undersøger Anne Ring Petersen grundstenene for en af nutidens mest udbredte kunstformer. Installationer er – ligesom skulpturer – tredimensionelle formationer eller billeddannelser, men i modsætning til skulpturen er installationen karakteriseret ved at være formet af rum eller rumlige scenografier, som skaber betydning og sanseoplevelser gennem sit billedsprog. Som resultat af dette er installationer ofte stort anlagte kunstværker, som beskueren kan gå ind i, og de lever dermed til fulde op til nutidens krav om spektakulære, æstetisk iscenesatte events og kulturoplevelser, der taler til sanserne. Gennem grundige analyser af værker af kunstnere som Bruce Nauman, Olafur Eliasson, Jeppe Hein, Mona Hatoum, Pipilotti Rist og Ilya Kabakov som bagtæppe søges der i denne bog svar på, hvad en installation egentlig er, hvilke virkemidler den bruger, hvordan installationskunstens opståen kan forklares i et kulturhistorisk perspektiv og meget mere. Også installationskunstens rumlige, tidsmæssige og diskursive aspekter såvel som dens receptionsæstetik, der sættes ind i en overordnet kunst- og kulturhistorisk ramme, undersøges. Installation Art: Between Image and Stage er et nyttigt værk for alle, der ønsker at forstå denne mangefacetterede kunstforms konceptuelle fundament. Anne Ring Petersen, dr.phil., er lektor ved Institut for Kunst og Kulturvidenskab, Københavns Universitet. Har i 2009 udgivetInstallationskunsten mellem billede og scene og er redaktør af Contemporary Painting in Context (2010). Despite its large and growing popularity — to say nothing of its near- ubiquity in the world’s art scenes and international exhibitions of contemporary art — installation art remains a form whose artistic vocabulary and conceptual basis have rarely been subjected to thorough critical examination. In Installation Art: Between Image and Stage, Anne Ring Petersen aims to change that. She begins by exploring how installation art developed into an interdisciplinary genre in the 1960s, and how its intertwining of the visual and the performative has acted as a catalyst for the generation of new artistic phenomena. She investigates how it became one of today's most widely used art forms, increasingly expanding into consumer, popular and urban cultures, where installation's often spectacular appearance ensures that it meets contemporary demands for sense-provoking and immersive cultural experiences. The main trajectory of the book is directed by a movement aimed at addressing a series of basic questions that get at the heart of what installation art is and how it is defined: How does installation structure time, space and representation? How does it address and engage its viewers? And how does it draw in the surrounding world to become part of the work? Featuring the work of such well-known artists as Bruce Nauman, Pipilotti Rist, Ilya Kabakov and many others, this book breaks crucial new ground in understanding the conceptual underpinnings of this multifacious art form. Anne Ring Petersen is associate professor in the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen and the editor of Contemporary Painting in Context.
