A study of three leading German artists presently exhibited in London at Tate Modern, the British Museum and the Royal Academy. In 2014, a resonant series of anniversaries and commemorations prompted an enhanced awareness in London of the history of the Teutonic world in general, and - specifically - a sense of post-war Germany in terms of three of its most symbolic and emblematic visual artists. London is a city which, whilst perhaps the most multi-ethnic and multi-cultural on earth, is also the oldest capital of the Anglophone world; and Britain is a country which is irrevocably scarred by its engagements with Germany in the 20th century. Perhaps as part of a subtle healing process, in recent times objects of all kinds are being used in the great national complexes of public museums and galleries in London, notably because of their resources, to provide historic narratives in an attempt to understand other cultures, and for 2014-2018 Germany will have pride of place. ungekürzt.

In Jakarta beherrscht ein mächtiger Gangster-Boss die Unterwelt. Die Polizei will diesen dingfest machen und dabei möglichst wenig Aufsehen erregen. Also wird ein 20-köpfiges Sondereinsatzkommando losgeschickt, um den Hauptsitz des Verbrechers zu stürmen. Rama ist der Neuling in der Spezialeinheit und wird angewiesen, sich während des Einsatzes zurückzuhalten, um nicht in die Schusslinie zu geraten. Als sie jedoch von einem Späher der Bande entdeckt werden, ist ihre Tarnung dahin und es beginnt ein Kampf um Leben und Tod. Der Unterweltboss setzt eine Belohnung für jeden aus, der ihm den Kopf eines Gesetzeshüters bringt.
The first edition of Curators and Collections, published in 1997, was based on interviews and features published in the quarterly review, Cv Journal of Art and Crafts (1988-1991). These recorded the launch of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 1991, the construction of Tate Modern in 1997, as well as exploring special collections at the National Gallery, Courtauld Gallery, The British Museum, and Royal Photographic Society. The book contained a comprehensive guide to public and private collections in England, Scotland, and Wales, which is revised and updated in this volume. The landscape of the arts has radically transformed in the intervening years, with a tremendous growth in audiences for contemporary art. The study recognizes the important role of private foundations and the activity of curators and gallerists in their independent initiatives. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Denise Kahn.

From Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in the USA, a city mired in corruption and bankruptcy, plagued by racism, corruption, nepotism, oppressive Christianity, and a floundering Nazi legacy comes an African-American and Native-American hero to save the day! The studio of Bryan Thomas Molloy presents the HarrisProject! Showing the true history of this Central PA region as the oasis of tolerance, shelter from persecution, and center of global wealth and trade that it once was and may be again, the HarrisProject reintroduces these truths back into popular consciousness in glowing form with a re-creation of the most famous legend of the city´s founder, John Harris. Painted lavishly in oils in historic, genre-melding, technical virtuosity, and using custom-made costumes and local craftsman, the six-foot wide panoramic scene features an actual descendant of John Harris posing as John Harris himself, and a former Broadway Dancer as the heroic rescuing chief. Secret ancient historical information, celestial symbolism, and fantastic artistic technique are delivered within the compositional arrangements and careful selection of colors and elements - including the use of the Lost Angles Process and Renaissance Pattern Echoing. The research phase alone took over six years of pouring intensively through historical records in many universities and museums throughout the world, and formed the foundation for the project. The final painting itself took more than three years of meticulous patience and dedicated attention to detail and technique. The entire process of the HarrisProject spanned a triumph by the artist over multiple personal tragedies including family deaths, a nervous breakdown, hospitalization, and a near-death experience. Each instance being a terrifying threat to the completion of this elaborate work of art. Language: English. Narrator: Andy Taylor.

This book offers a concise introduction to the appreciation and study of film.This second edition begins with an examination of early film theory before analysing how films are put together: framing, performance, setting, costume and editing.

There are also overviews on stars, genres, national cinemas, and film movements from around the world. With this book in your pocket, you can gasp as directors break the 30-degree rule, marvel as Oedipus complexes are resolved, shudder as you become aware of your own voyeurism, and tell your metteur en scène from your mise en scène. Going to the cinema may never be the same again... ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Hayes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/summ/000216de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
