In this innovative collection, a distinguished group of international authors dare to think psychoanalytically about the legacies of political violence and suffering in relation to post-traumatic cultures worldwide. They build on maverick art historian Aby Warburg's project of combining social, cultural, anthropological and psychological analyses of the image in order to track the undercurrents of cultural violence in the representational repertoire of Western modernity. Drawing on post-colonial and feminist theory, they analyze the image and the aesthetic in conditions of historical trauma, from enslavement and colonization to the Irish Famine, from Denmark's national trauma about migrants and cartoons to collective shock after 9/11, from individual traumas of loss registered in allegory to newsreels and documentaries on suicide bombing in Israel/Palestine, and from Kristeva's novels to Kathryn Bigelow's cinema.

Concentrationary Memories is based in the idea that the concentrationary plague unleashed on the world by the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s has remained and is now a permanent presence shadowing modern life. It also argues that memory - and, indeed, art in general - must be invoked to show this haunting of the present by this menacing past so that we can read for the signs of terror and counter its deformation of the human. The book presents political and cultural readings of film, art, photographic and literary practices, which analyses different cultural responses to concentrationary terror in the post-war period, ranging from Auschwitz to Argentina. Using multiple images, contributors including Nicholas Chare, Isabelle de le Court, Thomas Elsaesser, Benjamin Hannavy-Cousen, Claire Launchbury, Sylvie Lindeperg, Laura Malosetti Costa, Griselda Pollock, Annette Wiewiorka, and John Wolfe Akerman show how those involved in the cultural production of memories of the horror of totalitarianism sought to find forms, languages and image systems that could make sense of and resist the post-war condition in which, as Hannah Arendt famously stated, 'everything is possible' and 'human beings as human beings become superfluous'.

A radical examination of feminism’s place in our cultural memory How did we come to represent the history of feminism in terms of waves and generations? What are the effects of such powerful metaphors? In Feminism: A Bad Memory? Griselda Pollock analyses the cultural memory of feminism through the concept of trauma: an event that cannot be immediately digested because of the enormity of the shock it represents to the system, and especially to its potential subjects, feminists. Instead of plotting generations and waves and accepting selective versions of the feminist tradition, Pollock suggests that we can escape the familial metaphors and their burden of resentment and reaction. What happens when we pose feminism as a becoming-political that is creatively radical because it continuously throws up new conflicts, which become visible precisely because of the working through of a previous one? Drawing on a range of theories of the political to examine the issue of challenge and change, Pollock suggests psychoanalytical theories can illuminate the traumatic force of feminism over the twentieth century.

Commemorating the Irish Famine: Memory and the Monument presents for the first time a visual cultural history of the 1840s Irish Famine, tracing its representation and commemoration from the 19th century up to its 150th anniversary in the 1990s and beyond.As the watershed event of 19th century Ireland, the Famine's political and social impacts profoundly shaped modern Ireland and the nations of its diaspora. Yet up until the 1990s, the memory of the Famine remained relatively muted and neglected, attracting little public attention. Thus the Famine commemorative boom of the mid-1990s was unprecedented in scale and output, with close to one hundred monuments newly constructed across Ireland, Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. Drawing on an extensive global survey of recent community and national responses to the Famine's anniversary, and by outlining why these memories matter and to whom, this book argues how the phenomenon of Famine commemoration may be understood in the context of a growing memorial culture worldwide. It offers an innovative look at a well-known migration history whilst exploring how a now-global ethnic community redefines itself through acts of public memory and representation.

Trash, garbage, rubbish, dross, detritus -- in this enjoyably radical exploration of junk, Gillian Whiteley re-thinks art's historical and present appropriation of junk within our eco-conscious and globalized culture. She does this through an illustrated exploration of particular materials, key moments and locations and the telling of a panoply of trash narratives. Found and ephemeral materials are primarily associated with assemblage -- object-based practices which emerged in the mid-1950s and culminated in the seminal exhibition "The Art of Assemblage" in New York in 1961. With its deployment of the discarded and the filthy, Whiteley argues, assemblage has been viewed as a disruptive, transgressive artform that engaged with narratives of social and political dissent, often in the face of modernist condemnation as worthless kitsch. In the Sixties, parallel techniques flourished in Western Europe, the US and Australia but the idiom of assemblage and the re-use of found materials and objects -- with artist as bricoleur -- is just as prevalent now. This is a timely book that uncovers the etymology of waste and the cultures of disposability within these economies of wealth.

Rozsika Parker's re-evaluation of the reciprocal relationship between women and embroidery has brought stitchery out from the private world of female domesticity into the fine arts, created a major breakthrough in art history and criticism, and fostered the emergence of today's dynamic and expanding crafts movements. The Subversive Stitch is now available again with a new Introduction that brings the book up to date with exploration of the stitched art of Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin, as well as the work of new young female and male embroiderers. Rozsika Parker uses household accounts, women's magazines, letters, novels and the works of art themselves to trace through history how the separation of the craft of embroidery from the fine arts came to be a major force in the marginalisation of women's work. Beautifully illustrated, her book also discusses the contradictory nature of women's experience of embroidery: how it has inculcated female subservience while providing an immensely pleasurable source of creativity, forging links between women.
