«An Introduction to Visual Culture provides a wide-ranging introduction to the now establishedinterdisciplinary field of visual culture.
Mapping a global history and theory of visual culture, "An Introduction to Visual Culture" asks how and why visual media have become so central to everyday life.
Improved text design and colour images throughout make it an even more valuable teaching tool. Brand new features in the second edition include Key Image studies from Holbein’s
The Ambassadors, to Blade Runner and the Abu Ghraib atrocities; and a Key Words section in each chapter, discussing vital critical terms and the debates that surround them.
In this innovative, thoroughly revised and extended edition, Nicholas Mirzoeff explores:
• the rise and growing importance of visual culture;
• an extensive range of visual forms from painting, sculpture, and photography to television, cinema, and the Internet;
• the centrality of “race” and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and the body in shaping visual culture;
• Key images, from Holbein's The Ambassadors, to images from Blade Runner and the Abu Ghraib atrocities;
• the importance of images of natural disaster and conflict, such as Hurricane Katrina and the war in Iraq.
