Hiroshima After Iraq: Three Studies in Art and War

Hiroshima After Iraq: Three Studies in Art and War (Columbia, $23 cloth), by Rosalyn Deutsche, offers interpretations of video works by Krzysztof Wodiczko, Silvia Kolbowski, and Leslie Thornton.

Notes are posted online at the CUP blog, with a clip from Kolbowski’s After Hiroshima mon amour, as well as comments and review from Jon Lackman (Art History Newsletter) and Kaelen Wilson-Goldie (The National). The book developed from Deutsche’s three 2009 Wellek Lectures at UC Irvine, the first of which, dealing with Kolbowski, appeared as the lead article in October 131 (winter 2010). The author also spoke on the topic last spring at UT Austin.
