Details

Description: This title takes an immanent turn in art history. Immanence is a theory of divine presence, in which the divine is found in the material world, not outside of it. This new collection brings the major 20th century French philosopher Henri Bergson's work on immanence together with the latest ideas in art theory and the practice of immanent art as found in painting, photography and film. It places Bergson's work and influence in a wide historical context and applies a rigorous conceptual framework to contemporary art theory and practice. It includes 16 essays from world renowned art theorists, philosophers and Bergson scholars. Contributors include Iris van der Tuin, Eric Alliez, Simon O'Sullivan and Howard Caygill. It offers a variety of perspectives and methodological approaches that will appeal to both art theorists and practitioners. It explores concepts of rhythmic duration, perception, affectivity, the body, memory and intuition - all of which were first formulated as immanent objects through the work of Bergson.

Author Biography: John Mullarkey is Professor of Film and Television at Kingston University. Charlotte de Mille is freelance at the Courtauld Gallery. Her work studies the intersection of painting, music and philosophy in Europe c. 1848 1950. She is editor of Music and Modernism (2011), and Chair of the Royal Musical Association Music and Visual Arts Group.
