Meta- and Inter-Images in Contemporary Visual Art and Culture
Edited by Carla Taban
Since the 1990s, when the question of the visual became central in arts and humanities disciplines, images that refer to themselves as such or to other images have enjoyed an increasing interest. Meta- and Inter-Images in Contemporary Visual Art and Culture partakes in, enriches, and updates these debates. It investigates what meta- and inter-images can make known about the visual, in its own terms, by its own means.
Written by scholars in aesthetics, art history, and cultural, film, literary, media, and visual studies, the essays gathered here tackle meta- and inter-images in an array of creative artifacts, practices, and media. They unfold the epistemological potential of every meta- and inter-image discussed to raise questions such as: What are images? How do they work? By whom, to what purpose, to what effect, and in what context/s are they used? How are they created and understood? And how do they challenge our (pre)conceptions of images and the ways we study them?
