AESTHETICIZING PUBLIC SPACE: STREET VISUAL POLITICS IN EAST ASIAN CITIES. Lu Pan. Intellect, Bristol, 2015. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect, University of Chicago Press. 274 pp. with 76 ills. 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783204533 In English.
Publisher's description: A photo-collage of past and present street visuals in Asia, Aestheticizing Public Space explores the domestic, regional, and global nexus of East Asian cities through their graffiti, street art, and other visual forms in public space. Attempting to unfold the complex positions of these images in the urban spatial politics of their respective regions, Lu Pan explores how graffiti in East Asia reflects the relationship between aesthetics and politics. The book situates itself in a contested dynamic relationship among human bodies, visual modernity, social or moral norms, styles, and historical experiences and narratives. On a broader level, this book aims to shed light on how aesthetics and politics are mobilized in different contested spaces and media forms, in which the producer and the spectator change and exchange their identities.
