The Nineteenth-Century Visual Culture Reader (In Sight: Visual Culture)
by Vanessa R. Schwartz
Publisher's Description
The nineteenth century is central to contemporary discussions of visual culture. This reader brings together for the first time key writings about the period, exploring such topics as photographs, exhibitions and advertising. Suggesting that 'modernity' rather than 'modernism' is a valuable way of understanding the changes particular to the visual culture of the time, the editors investigate the variety of nineteenth-century images, technologies and visual experiences, stressing in particular the very consciousness of vision and visuality. Selections include works by Baudelaire, Marx, Freud, Simmel, Kracauer, Benjamin, Foucault, TJ Clark, and Linda Nochlin.
