This landmark publication reevaluates historical Native American art as a crucial but under-examined component of American art history. The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection, a transformative promised gift to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, includes masterworks from more than fifty cultures across North America. The works highlighted in this volume span centuries, from before contact with European settlers to the early twentieth century. In this beautifully illustrated volume, featuring all new photography, the innovative visions of known and unknown makers are presented in a wide variety of forms, from painting, sculpture, and drawing to regalia, ceramics, and baskets. The book provides key insights into the art, culture, and daily life of culturally distinct Indigenous peoples along with critical and popular perceptions over time, revealing that to engage Native art is to reconsider the very meaning of America. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana}

Der berühmte Pianist Ryder ist auf Konzertreise. Bei seiner Ankunft im Hotel möchte er sich am liebsten sofort zurückziehen, wird aber vom Hotelpagen in Beschlag genommen, der ihn um einen ungewöhnlich persönlichen Gefallen bittet. Ryder sagt zu und macht daraufhin eine ganze Reihe sonderbarer Bekanntschaften, die ihn in tiefe Verwirrung stürzen, lauter Ungetröstete, die sich von dem Künstler Hilfe oder gar Erlösung erhoffen. Ryder versucht, auf jeden Einzelnen einzugehen und merkt zu spät, dass er sich dabei selbst immer mehr abhanden kommt.

Schulden

Die ersten 5000 Jahre

Author: David Graeber

Publisher: Klett-Cotta

ISBN: 3608103104

Category: Political Science

Page: 536

View: 9738

Ein radikales Buch im doppelten Wortsinn, denn Graeber packt das Problem der Schulden an der Wurzel, indem er bis zu ihren Anfängen in der Geschichte zurückgeht. Das führt ihn mitten hinein in die Krisenherde unserer Zeit: Von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart sind revolutionäre Bewegungen immer in Schuldenkrisen entstanden. Graeber sprengt die moralischen Fesseln, die uns auf das Prinzip der Schulden verpflichten. Denn diese Moral ist eine Waffe in der Hand der Mächtigen. Die weltweite Schuldenwirtschaft ist eine Bankrotterklärung der Ökonomie. Der Autor enttarnt Geld- und Kredittheorien als Mythen, die die Ökonomisierung aller sozialen Beziehungen vorantreiben. Im Kern ist dieses Buch ein hohes Lied auf die Freiheit: Das sumerische Wort »amargi«, das Synonym für Schuldenfreiheit, ist Graeber zufolge das erste Wort für Freiheit in menschlicher Sprache überhaupt. David Graeber ist einer der Begründer der Occupy-Bewegung.
