9780813574066: Beautiful Terrible Ruins: Detroit and the Anxiety of Decline
Críticas:

"In the early twentieth century, Detroit was defined by Charles Sheeler's photos of the River Rouge plant and Diego Rivera's murals of work. Today, the hulking ruins of old industrial buildings and empty skyscrapers symbolize the city. In this provocative analysis, informed by urban geography, political economy, and art history, Dora Apel reflects on what images of ruined Detroit teach us about the city, popular culture, and American capitalism." --Thomas J. Sugrue "author of The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroi "

Críticas:

"Writing against the genre of ruin porn, Dora Apel's wonderful "Beautiful Terrible Ruins" reveals the way decay is inbuilt into capitalism at its creation. An excellent and penetrating study."--Greg Grandin"author of Fordlandia: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford's Forgotten Jungle City" (09/24/2014)

Descripción Rutgers University Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 218 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Once the manufacturing powerhouse of the nation, Detroit has become emblematic of failing cities everywhere - the paradigmatic city of ruins - and the epicenter of an explosive growth in images of urban decay. In Beautiful Terrible Ruins, art historian Dora Apel explores a wide array of these images, ranging from photography, advertising, and television, to documentaries, video games, and zombie and disaster films. Apel shows how Detroit has become pivotal to an expanding network of ruin imagery, imagery ultimately driven by a pervasive and growing cultural pessimism, a loss of faith in progress, and a deepening fear that worse times are coming. The images of Detroit s decay speak to the overarching anxieties of our era: increasing poverty, declining wages and social services, inadequate health care, unemployment, homelessness, and ecological disaster - in short, the failure of capitalism. Apel reveals how, through the aesthetic distancing of representation, the haunted beauty and fascination of ruin imagery, embodied by Detroit s abandoned downtown skyscrapers, empty urban spaces, decaying factories, and derelict neighborhoods help us to cope with our fears. But Apel warns that these images, while pleasurable, have little explanatory power, lulling us into seeing Detroit s deterioration as either inevitable or the city s own fault, and absolving the real agents of decline - corporate disinvestment and globalization. Beautiful Terrible Ruins helps us understand the ways that the pleasure and the horror of urban decay hold us in thrall. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9780813574066
