Visual Display: Culture Beyond Appearances (Discussions in Contemporary Culture #10)

This richly illustrated anthology presents essays by scholars, historians, cultural critics, and curators, who examine a broad range of subjects, such as sci-fi filmmaking, modern medical imaging, tourist art, politico-economic charting, eighteenth-century cabinets of curiosity, and museology, but they share a focus on cultural presentation as historical testimony. Includes essays by Stephen Bann, Scott Bukatman, Lisa Cartwright, Ludmilla Jordanova, Susan Buck-Morss, Ralph Rugoff, Susan Stewart, and others.
