Language: English . Brand New Book. Atomic postcards played an important role in creating and disseminating a public image of nuclear power. Presenting small-scale images of test explosions, power plants, fallout shelters, and long-range missiles, the cards were produced for mass audiences in China, the United States, the Soviet Union, and Japan, and theylink the multilayered geographies of Atomic Age nationalism and tourism. From the unfailingly cheery slogans Greetings from Los Alamos to blithe, handwritten notes and no-irony-intended Pray for Peace postmarks, these postcards mailed from the edge of danger nonetheless maintain the upbeat language of their medium. With 150 reproductions of cards and handwritten messages dating from the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the end of the Cold War, Atomic Postcards offers a fascinating glimpse of a time when the end of the world seemed close at hand.

Synopsis : Over the past four decades, contemporary art practice has been marked by a renewed emphasis on both the moving image and the politics of place. This title connolly identifies a recurrent concern with site and space in artists' film and video, extending from the avant-garde revivals of the 1960s to the present day. It provides an analysis of changing exhibition structures and in-depth readings of many recent works, from multi-screen installations and site-specific projects to feature-length films. The book also explores the changing structures of exhibition, tracing the circulation of film and video works within alternative art spaces, museums, cable and public service broadcasting, biennial art events and, more recently, art fairs. "The Place of Artists' Cinema" will appeal to curators, practitioners and students of visual art and media arts.
