Product Description

Review

"A groundbreaking work! There is currently no book I know of like it in the thoroughness, depth, and sweep. Relationscapes offers a unique approach to a central series of issues in both continental philosophy and cultural theory." --Andrew Murphie, School of English, Media, and Performing Arts, University of New South Wales



"What commonalities do the Aboriginal paintings by Dorothy Napangardi, Emily Kwyame, and Clifford Possum share with the Western images of McLaren, Leni Riefenstahl, and David Spriggs? Each artist's production, as explored by Manning, unfolds a topology of the mind, an elasticity of movement between feeling and thinking. Manning's writing is itself a bath of sensory experiences as she brings these art pieces to life. Relationscapes creates ephemeral anchors for new journeys."--Barbara Glowczewski, author of the Dream Trackers digital project, senior researcher at the Laboratory of Social Anthropology, Collège de France
