              Bringing together two communities with a shared history of statelessness, Ukrainian Jewish Journey focuses on the cultural similarities of the two groups, while delving into the complex and difficult histories of both populations over the last two hundred years. Despite their poi...nts of interconnectedness the interactions between the two groups have been historically complex. The book examines the history of Ukrainian-Jewish interactions by highlighting encounters in daily life, in cultural contexts, and in episodes of violence. It explores the ways in which the Jewish and non-Jewish peoples of present-day Ukraine have sought to define their identities while also remaining rooted in their own unique traditions. Featuring one hundred color images and with new research the book is a focused exploration of universal issues of cultural memory, national and individual identity, and the cultural implications of encounter.

              Paul Z. Rotterdam is one of the most influential art scholars of his generation, combining mature scholarly comprehension with the knowledge wrought from a renowned artistic career. For this anthology, art historian Carl Aigner brings together for the first time Rotterdam's writi...ngs: essays, interviews, and lectures, including lectures given at Harvard University's Visual Art Center and the Cooper Union School of Art where Rotterdam teaches. In his writings, Rotterdam explores art and nature, beauty and myth, and realism and abstraction, questioning the conditions for artistic creation and making a compelling case for the necessity of tradition in art. Among the writings in this volume is Rotterdam's famous essay on Gustav Klimt's The Kiss.

              Since 1947, artist-owned photo agency Magnum Photos has combined an extraordinary range of individual styles into a powerful collaborative project to chronicle the people, places, and events of the world in a way that defies convention and transforms our view. Founded in the afte...rmath of World War II by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger, and David Seymour, Magnum Photos has long been driven by a shared belief in humanist values--a belief that has led its photographers, witnesses of a world in increasing disarray, to capture compelling and compassionate images that have marked history. Published on the occasion of Magnum Photos's seventieth anniversary, Framing Community takes readers through the history of the agency, with a special focus on community as a subject that is both central to its practice and to fruitful conversations about shifting conditions and social change. Of the more than one hundred images selected, some depict dramatic crowds, while others show quiet communal gatherings. Nearly all resonate powerfully beyond their initial publication, a testament to the skill and political power of the photographers. In addition to the photographs, the book also includes excerpts from interviews with photographers and subjects.

              Orange, yellow, green, blue - what happens in the human brain when colors are not seen with the physical eye, but instead aurally experienced with one's ears? This publication focuses on a sound installation by the Swiss artist Daniele Buetti commissioned by the Schirn Museum in ...Frankfurt, which transfers color theory, meditation, and hypnosis into an artistic context. The Swiss conceptual artist Daniele Buetti, born in 1955, is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Munster in Germany. His artistic work spans many media. In the 1990s he rose to fame with his modified photographs of supermodels. His sound installation It's all in the mind is based on a 25-minute audio performance taking the audience through techniques of hypnosis. In his work, Buetti uses 'color purification' techniques of hypnotic suggestion that conjure up different colors and their psychological effects. Interviews with well-known specialists complement this interdisciplinary volume.
