Art Markets, Agents and Collectors brings together a wide variety of case studies, based on letters and detailed archival research, which nuance the history of the art market and the role of the collector within it. Using diaries, account books and other archival sources, the contributions to this volume show how agents set up networks and acquired works of art, often developing the taste and knowledge of the collectors for whom they were working. They are therefore seen as important actors in the market, having a specific role that separates them from auctioneers, dealers, museum curators or amateurs, while at the same time acknowledging and analyzing the dual positions that many held. Each chronological period is introduced by a contextual essay, written by a leading expert in the field, which sets out the art market in the period concerned and the ways in which agents functioned. This book is an invaluable tool for those needing a broader introduction to the intricate workings of the art market.

Subversion does not belong to anyone. It can come from artists who outwit the state or from intelligence agencies who infiltrate the art scene on behalf of the state. But what happens when the two sides meet? After the old state security archives in many Eastern European countries were opened, it became possible for this interaction to be studied in detail. Drawing on scientific essays and artistic contributions, the book shows how the secret police monitored happenings, performance art, and action art and looks at the debates they had about the new art form; it also demonstrates not only how the police documented artistic actions in detail using forensic techniques but also how they manipulated them and sought to thwart them with counter-actions. In addition to this, the book also reveals how artists dealt with the possibility that they were being observed by the secret police and how they now work with the material stored in the archives maintained by the intelligence services.0Kata Krasznahorkai is a curator and research assistant on the ERC project "Performance Art in Eastern Europe 1950?1990: History and Theory" at the University of Zurich's Slavisches (Slavonic) Seminar.0Sylvia Sasse, author and curator, is professor of Slavonic Literature at the University of Zurich and heads the ERC project "Performance Art in Eastern Europe 1950?1990: History and Theory".00Exhibition: Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund, Germany (26.10.2019 - 23.02.2020).

Utilizing as few words as possible, but presenting a tremendous variety and volume of illustrations, this all-in-one guide details the fundamentals of drawing in its various phases and fields. In the opening pages, the author points out the first step on the road to creative achievement: artists must learn how to see people and things in terms of pictures, then master the techniques needed to express themselves on paper. Geared to newcomers and yet still beneficial for more experienced artists, Moranz’s illuminating advice covers everything from nude and draped figures to the art of portraits and sketching animals. He covers the effective use of various mediums, including pencil, charcoal, pen, and wash. Plus, he offers helpful tips on developing a sixth sense about perspective, the basics of composition, reflecting light and shadow, and more. There's even a chapter on taking drawing one step further — from a pleasurable hobby to a successful commercial venture.

The collection of essays in Secret Agents and the Memory of Everyday Collaboration in Communist Eastern Europe addresses institutions that develop the concept of collaboration, and examines the function, social representation and history of secret police archives and institutes of national memory that create these histories of collaboration. The essays provide a comparative account of collaboration/participation across differing categories of collaborators and different social milieux throughout East-Central Europe. They also demonstrate how secret police files can be used to produce more subtle social and cultural histories of the socialist dictatorships. By interrogating the ways in which post-socialist cultures produce the idea of, and knowledge about, “collaborators,” the contributing authors provide a nuanced historical conception of “collaboration,” expanding the concept toward broader frameworks of cooperation and political participation to facilitate a better understanding of Eastern European communist regimes.

This dissertation is a historical study of Gentile Bellini's artistic visit to Constantinople and its artistic products--the painted and the medal Portrait of Mehmed II and drawings of Ottoman people--that articulates Bellini's role as an agent of artistic exchange. Although recent publications purport to celebrate Bellini's intercultural experience, they remain within what I call the Renaissance and documentary paradigms: Bellini's works are treated either as a universal achievement of Renaissance art that amazed the Sultan, or as documents of social life and customs in Constantinople. My dissertation, in contrast, argues that these works are a logical outgrowth of the practices of visiting court artists, the increasingly prominent role of images in political and cultural communications between courts and states, and the rising role of artists in diplomacy, which developed during the second part of the fifteenth century on the Italian peninsula and in the Greater Mediterranean. This dissertation examines how Bellini's artistic products reflect Mehmed II's politically motivated interests in ruler portraiture, as well as relate to theories and functions of portraiture in Renaissance courts. That is, this dissertation argues that Bellini's works have an expressive symbolic purpose; thus my work revises and in part contradicts Renaissance accounts of how Bellini amazed Mehmed II and his court with his superior knowledge of art and skills in verisimilitude. My analysis demonstrates that Bellini learned from the art that he encountered in Constantinople, and that, while there, he tried to make his work comprehensible to viewers familiar with Eastern traditions. Bellini fashioned a new, polyglot visual language out of Romano-Byzantine, Venetian, and Timurid artistic traditions to express imperial authority and to visually proclaim the emerging cosmopolitan structure of Ottoman society developed by Mehmed II. In the end, this dissertation reveals that Bellini drew from a wide range of artistic conventions, including contemporary models available to him in both Venice and Constantinople--distinct, heterogeneous cultural capitals in the Mediterranean, interconnected by trade and cultural exchange.

Publisher: Reaktion Books
Diego Rivera, Dorothea Lange, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel: Art and activism have long been intertwined, and the political fallout has resulted in an artistic canon riddled with historical holes. One of the most glaring omissions from most listings of American art masters is Ad Reinhardt (1913–67). An artist who had significant ties to the American Communist movement and leftist political organizations, Reinhardt and his contributions to modern art have been largely pushed out of the spotlight for political reasons. But in this unprecedented in-depth study of Reinhardt’s life and work, Michael Corris returns the artist to his rightful place in the history of modern art and culture. A pioneering avant-garde artist with fierce political beliefs, Reinhardt immersed himself in the vibrant left-wing political and cultural circles of the 1930s and ’40s, only to be marginalized by the social and cultural conservatism that arose in postwar America. Corris examines Reinhardt’s work against this historical background, charting the development of his entire oeuvre, ranging from his abstract paintings to his popular graphic artwork, illustrations and cartoons. Ad Reinhardt also re-evaluates Reinhardt’s role and influence in the art world, chronicling his time as an artist and educator at the California School of Fine Arts, University of Wyoming, Yale University, and Hunter College, and examining his influence on younger artists who created successive avant-garde movements such as minimal and conceptual art. A long-awaited examination of a less-heralded American master, Ad Reinhardt is a fascinating portrait of an artist whose political radicalism infused his art with a poignant resonance that stretches, through this rediscovery, into the present.

th Welcome to the proceedings of the 10 International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA), held 20-22 September, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Intelligent Virtual Agents are interactive characters that exhibit human-like qualities and communicate with humans or with each other using natural human modalities such as behavior, gesture, and speech. IVAs are capable of real-time perception, cognition, and action that allow them to participate in a dynamic physical and social environment. IVA 2010 is an interdisciplinary annual conference and the main forum for prese- ing research on modeling, developing, and evaluating Intelligent Virtual Agents with a focus on communicative abilities and social behavior. The development of IVAs - quires expertise in multimodal interaction and several AI fields such as cognitive modeling, planning, vision, and natural language processing. Computational models are typically based on experimental studies and theories of human-human and hum- robot interaction; conversely, IVA technology may provide interesting lessons for these fields. Visualizations of IVAs require computer graphics and animation te- niques, and in turn supply significant realism problem domains for these fields. The realization of engaging IVAs is a challenging task, so reusable modules and tools are of great value. The fields of application range from robot assistants, social simulation, and tutoring to games and artistic exploration. The enormous challenges and diversity of possible applications of IVAs have - sulted in an established annual conference.
