Couverture de « HOMO SPECTATOR »


Marie-José Mondzain, well-known for her work on the Fathers of the Church and the iconoclasts, returns to the primitive scene in this book: man confronting the first images produced by human hand. What is happening in that original scene, and what… Read more  does it tell us about the image itself? As the author reminds us in a preface published for the first time, it is urgent to understand the energy at work in such operations which we, today, must save from all-powerful communication in order to preserve our political life, beyond trade and merchandising. We yet have to understand and imagine operations that are likely to produce a dynamic community, capable of defending Cocteau’s remark: “We didn’t know it was impossible, so we did it.”
