Nancy and Visual Culture

Carrie Giunta (Editor), Adrienne Janus (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Jean-Luc Nancy is one of the most original and compelling of those contemporary political and ethical philosophers who, like Jacques Rancière and Alain Badiou, have turned their attention towards aesthetics and visual art. Nancy’s challenging and inspiring writings on painting, film, photography, video and contemporary visual art have informed the work of scholars of art history, visual culture and aesthetic theory as well as artists, film-makers and curators. In an exciting range of original responses to Nancy’s work, this book reanimates the dialogue between interdisciplinary scholars and practising artists that originally gave birth to visual culture as a field of study.
