THINKING IN FILM: THE POLITICS OF VIDEO INSTALLATION ACCORDING TO EIJA-LIISA AHTILA. Mieke Bal. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2013. 326 pp. with 88 ills. (84 col.). 22 x 14 cm. ISBN 9781472526915 In English.
Paperbound edition available; see Worldwide 156910. Publisher's description: In Thinking In Film, celebrated theorist Mieke Bal engages in an exploration -- part dialogue, part voyage -- with the video installations of Finnish artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila to understand movement as artistic practice and as affect. Through fifteen years of Ahtila's practice, including such seminal works as The Annunciation, Where Is Where? and The House, Bal searches for the places where theoretical and artistic practices intersect, to create radical spaces in which genuinely democratic acts are performed. Bringing together different understandings of 'figure' from form to character, Bal examines the syntax of the exhibition and its ability to bring together installations, the work itself, the physical and ontological thresholds of the installation space and the use of narrative and genre.
