BODIES WE FAIL: PRODUCTIVE EMBODIMENTS OF IMPERFECTION. Jules Sturm. Transcript Verlag, Bielefeld, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Columbia University Press, New York. 220 pp. with 22 ills. ISBN 9783837626094 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: This book explores the productive effects of bodily "failure" within the sphere of visuality, marking the body's constant exposure to visual constraints and distortions, incorporated so strongly into everyday images that they become invisible though representative of cultural norms. By analyzing artistic literary and visual representations of imperfect, disabled, aging, queer, and monstrous bodies, this project exposes the "handicaps" of normative vision and recognizes a multitude of corporeal existences and practices.
