Energy and Forces as Aesthetic Interventions: Politics of Bodily Scenarios (Theater) Taschenbuch, .
This volume collects academic as well as artistic explorations highlighting historical and contemporary approaches to 'the energetic' in its aesthetic and political potential. Energetic processes straddle dance, performance art and installations. They transform the body, evoke specific states and push towards intensities. In contemporary dance and performance art, energetic processes are no longer mere conditions of form but appear as distinct aesthetic interventions. The contributions in this volume submit these to thorough investigation, elucidating maneuvers of mobilization, activation, initiation, regulation, navigation and containment of forces as well as different potentials and promises associated with the energetic.

Distinction (Routledge Classics) von Pierre Bourdieu Taschenbuch, .
No judgement if taste is innocent - we are all snobs. First published in 1979, Pierre Bourdieu brilliantly illuminates the social pretentions of the middle classes in the modern world. Focusing the French bourgeoisie its tastes and preferences Distinction is at once a vast ethnography of contemporary France and a dissection of the bourgeois mind. In the course of everyday life, we constantly choose between what we find aesthetically pleasing, and what we consider tacky, merely trendy, or ugly. Bourdieu demonstrates that our aesthetic choices are distinctions that is, choices made in opposition to those made by other classes. There is no pure aesthetics, no judgement of taste untainted by the power relations within which minute distinctions become the basis for social judgement.
Thought of Music von Lawrence Kramer Taschenbuch, .
What, exactly, is knowledge of music? And what does it tell us about humanistic knowledge in general? The Thought of Music grapples directly with these fundamental questions-questions especially compelling at a time when humanistic knowledge is enmeshed in debates about its character and future. In this third volume in a trilogy on musical understanding that includes Interpreting Music and Expression and Truth, Lawrence Kramer seeks answers in both thought about music and thought in music-thinking in tones. He skillfully assesses musical scholarship in the aftermath of critical musicology and musical hermeneutics and in view of more recent concerns with embodiment, affect, and performance. This authoritative and timely work challenges the prevailing conceptions of every topic it addresses: language, context, and culture; pleasure and performance; and, through music, the foundations of understanding in the humanities.
