BARTHES/BURGIN. Ed. by Ryan Bishop and Sunil Manghani. John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton, 2016. Published by Edinburgh University Press. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Oxford University Press. 128 pp. with 27 col. ills. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781474415538 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: The influence of Roland Barthes on Burgin's work is well documented. Equally, Burgin's prominence as an artist and theorist concerned with text and image offers a productive dialogue with Barthes' work. Victor Burgin has long been considered both theorist and practitioner, while Barthes is more known as a theorist and writer. In bringing to the fore Barthes's practice of painting and drawing, Barthes/Burgin prompts a new critical consideration of Barthes/Burgin, theory/practice, writing/making and criticality/visuality. Barthes/Burgin features two new interviews with Burgin, one concerned with his turn to new digital practices and the other a reflection on his reading of Roland Barthes. Also included are images and texts from the artists and an essay critically examining Barthes' exercises in drawing and painting. This book accompanied an exhibition at the John Hansard Gallery (February to April 2016), bringing together recent projection works by Victor Burgin and a selection of drawings by Roland Barthes rarely seen outside of France. The exhibition played with Barthes' use of the slash as established in semiology (and notably used in the title of Barthes' key poststructuralist work S/Z).
