In Visual Culture the 'visual' character of contemporary culture is explored in original and lively essays. The contributors look at advertising, film, painting and fine art, journalism, photography, television and propaganda. They argue that there is only a social, not a formal relation between vision and truth.


'Subjects such as television, advertising, film, journalism and art are examined in this anthology of critical looking.' - Art Monthly

Visual Culture provides fresh perspectives on a wide range of interlocking themes, from optical technologies to models of specularity, from avant-garde art to popular culture, from urban landscapes to the interiority of the modern subject.' - Martin Jay, University of California at Berkeley
