Susan Hiller: The Provisional Texture of Reality

Susan Hiller: The Provisional Texture of Reality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A former anthropologist, Susan Hiller has, since the late 1970s, forged an interface between critical writing and a visual art practice in which feminist and postcolonial cultural politics are fused with idiosyncratic explorations of science, magic and the continuing lure of psychoanalysis. In a 2001 interview, she stated, What I think art provides is something like an instigation or an enhanced awareness of how we are all collaboratively and creatively implicated in making a culture. This comprehensive volume compiles previously published essays, interviews, papers, lectures and other ephemera which document Hiller's incisive interventions into contemporary debates on the shifting roles of art and theory. Structured in three sections, the book--part of JRP]Ringier's Positions series--is simultaneously theoretical and deeply personal.

Born in Tallahassee, Florida Susan Hiller has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s.
