HISTORY IN MOTION: TIME IN THE AGE OF THE MOVING IMAGE. Sven Lutticken. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 312 pp. with 70 ills. 22 x 14 cm. ISBN 9783943365894 In English.
Publisher's description: The moving image has irrevocably redefined our experience and construction of history. In the contemporary economy of time, history has become an image in motion, a series of events animated and performed through various media. Analyzing a variety of films, video works and performances, Amsterdam-based historian and critic of art and culture Sven Lutticken evaluates the impact that our changing experience of time has had on the actualization of history in the present. In the process, he considers the role of shock and suspense, of play and games, the rise and ubiquity of television, transformed notions of leisure time and labor, and a new "natural history" marked by climate change.
