The most recent issue of Third Text (vol. 24, issue 5, September 2010) includes, among others:
- Elizabeth Adan, “An ‘Imperative to Interrupt’: Radical Aesthetics, Global Contexts and Site-Specificity in the Recent Work of Doris Salcedo”:
- “… Salcedo deploys site-specificity in ways that challenge official histories of various locations, exhibition venues and art institutions, constituting a radical resistant artistic practice that targets the dichotomies of ‘first’ and ‘third’ world, or centre and periphery, that continue to inform discourses on globalisation.”
- Krista Geneviève Lynes, “Perversions of Modesty: Lars von Trier’s The Five Obstructions and ‘The Most Miserable Place on Earth'”
- [T]he film’s epic quest – one shaped by the phobic characterisation of the red light district in Mumbai – highlights the director’s struggles with directorial modesty, a modesty that is deeply coded by scientific and ethnographic models of witnessing. Further, such modesty also replays and revisits a set of historically structured racialised and gendered threats. It concludes that witnessing relations need to acknowledge how transnational social relations are reproduced in artistic processes, and how films might trace the path of those political, aesthetic and affective relations.
