Edges of Empire: Orientalism and Visual Culture (New Interventions in Art History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edges of Empire focuses on the intersection between modernization, modernism, and Orientalism. It is a timely reassessment of the history and legacy of Orientalist art and visual culture. The essays in this volume explore the connections and cross-fertilizations that occur across cultural boundaries via the analysis of Ottoman and North African art practices, as well as the visual culture of European Orientalism. Contested identities and new definitions of self are highlighted in relation to topics as diverse as nineteenth-century monuments to empire, cultural cross-dressing, performance and display at the international exhibitions, and contemporary museological practice. This is a groundbreaking anthology that will be of great interest to scholars and students of art history, architecture, museum studies, and cultural and postcolonial studies.

Book News Annotation:

Art historians from the US and Australia explore the movement of objects, artists, and iconography across the edges of empires, between European, North African, and Ottoman cultures. Their topics include Egypt's Statue of Liberty, oriental femininity as cultural commodity, Turkish modernism and the Generation of 1914, and Andalusia in the time of the Moors.
