Library Shelf Location 18.BURG
Publication Date 2014

The work of British conceptual artist and writer Victor Burgin revolves around the relationship between image and text, one in which neither optical nor verbal predominates, and explores the territory between still and moving images. Four essays are included in this volume, written by D.N. Rodowick, Gülru Çakmak, Homay King and Anthony Vidler, each analysing various aspects of Burgin’s attention to the affective agency of space in his work, from orientalism and the cultural politics of modernity, to viewing Burgin’s work through the lens of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. Also, the artist’s own thinking about visual culture is revealed in an interview with David Campany.
