AFTER-AFFECTS/AFTER-IMAGES: TRAUMA AND AESTHETIC TRANSFORMATION IN THE VIRTUAL FEMINIST MUSEUM. Griselda Pollock. Manchester University Press, 2013. Rethinking Art's Histories. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 432 pp. with 107 ills. (16 col.). 23 x 16 cm. ISBN 9780719087981 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 155410. Publisher's description: Do artists travel away from or towards trauma? Is trauma encrypted or inscribed in art? Or can aesthetic practices -- after-images -- bring about transformation that does not imply cure or resolution-of the traces -- after-affects -- of trauma, personal trauma or historical traumas inhabiting the world whose traces artists also process as participants in and sensors for our life-worlds and histories?... These are some of the questions posed by major feminist art historian and cultural analyst, Griselda Pollock, in her latest installation of the virtual feminist museum. In closely-read case studies, we encounter artworks by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Ana Mendieta, Louise Bourgeois, Alina Szapocznikow, Anna Maria Maiolino, Vera Frenkel, Sarah Kofman and Chantal Akerman to explore trauma and bereavement, fatal illness, first and second generation Holocaust experience, migration, exile and the encounter with political horror and atrocity.
