'Play art' or interactive art is becoming a central concept in the contemporary art world, disrupting the traditional role of passive observance usually assumed by audiences, allowing them active participation. The work of 'play' artists - from Carsten Holler's 'Test Site' at the Tate Modern to Gabriel Orozco's 'Ping Pond Table' - must be touched, influenced and experienced; the gallery-goer is no longer a spectator but a co-creator. "Time to Play" explores the role of play as a central but neglected concept in aesthetics and a model for ground-breaking modern and postmodern experiments which have tended to blur the boundary between art and life. Moving freely between disciplines, Katarzyna Zimna links the theory and history of 20th and 21st century art with ideas developed within play, game and leisure studies, and the philosophical theories of Kant, Gadamer and Derrida, to critically engage with current discussion on the role of the artist, viewers, curators and their spaces of encounter.

A completely updated edition of a seminal work on fans and communities We are all fans. Whether we follow our favorite celebrities on Twitter, attend fan conventions such as Comic Con, or simply wait with bated breath for the next episode of our favorite television drama—each of us is a fan. Recognizing that fandom is not unusual, but rather a universal subculture, the contributions in this book demonstrate that understanding fans--whether of toys, TV shows, celebrities, comics, music, film, or politicians--is vital to an understanding of media audiences, use, engagement, and participatory culture in a digital age. Including eighteen new, original essays covering topics such as activism directed at racism in sports fandom, fan/producer interactions at Comic Con, the impact of new technologies on fandom, and the politics and legality of fanfic, this wide-ranging collection provides diverse approaches to fandom for anyone seeking to understand modern life in our increasingly mediated, globalized and binge-watching world.

Home Ludens Ludens is an exhibition and symposium which looks into the expressions of play in contemporary culture and examines the formations of "magic circles" in our digital time. Focusing on play, rather than games, the Exhibition constitutes a setting that embraces different practices and approaches by artists who address, describe or comment on today's play. Play is being reversed and reformed. It carries social and political issues and becomes a tool for critique and social change. By connecting the virtual and the real, it opens new spaces for communication and action. Its ability to approach and fuse into other disciplines gives birth to new forms of art and play. Complementing the Exhibition, the International Symposium aims to situate the framework of contemporary play, and show its multiple expressions in today's activities and functions. This catalogue also contains the re-release of the Gameworld and Playware exhibitions and covers therefore the complete trilogy about videogames and art at LABoral Centre de Arte y Creacion Industrial.

Fiction f minisme et postmodernit

Fiction  f  minisme et postmodernit  Author Anne Larue
ISBN-10 2812401222

Cet essai, consacré à la littérature de l’imaginaire, s’interroge sur la valeur subversive d’un corpus dont on n’aurait a priori pas attendu la moindre velléité de subversion : la littérature contemporaine populaire de très grande diffusion, anglo-saxonne et française. Il montre comment, soumise au choc du backlash (revanche antiféministe des années 80), la fiction grand public choisit une voie souterraine de résistance et garde enfouie la mémoire d’une féminité triomphante qui devient son sujet principal et « occulte ». Ce travail engage donc une réflexion sur le caractère paradoxal des best-sellers : la littérature la plus commerciale, la plus « facile », la plus ludique serait-elle celle où s’expriment le mieux les aspirations politiques et théologiques des sociétés occidentales d’aujourd’hui ?
