"Après un travail monographique sur ceux qui comptent parmi les plus grands artistes contemporains (Bruce Nauman et Gerhard Richter), ainsi qu'une tentative pour comprendre l'éclectisme de l'art d'aujourd'hui par le concept de plurimédialité (Spéculations sur la spécularité), l'auteur s'attelle ici à revenir à une certaine origine même de l'art (et donc de l'art contemporain) pour tenter non pas d'en dégager une théorie, ou théorétique, générale, mais d'en discerner comme un point de fuite, même sans cesse mouvant, qui nous permettrait de commencer à prendre un certain recul théorique, précisément. Comment l'oeuvre de Barnett Newman peut-il nous indiquer ce qui s'est joué entre l'art moderne et l'art contemporain, nous esquisser alors un cheminement, a priori, par exemple entre Jackson Pollock et Mark Rothko d'une part, ou Sol LeWitt ou Robert Smithson d'autre part ? Le plus étonnant peut-être est que nous irons chercher très loin le point nodal d'un tel cheminement : exactement dans la période romane et préromane de l'art chrétien, selon leurs origines orientales. Du IXe siècle, approximativement, jusqu'aux derniers travaux de James Turrell ou Anish Kapoor, nous tenterons alors de comprendre une des survivances absolues de la question du visible : l'effacement, le retrait, la visualité de la déréliction voire la déréliction du visible même... Sous la figure augurale de Barnett Newman, et à partir des églises byzantines de Ravenne, nous chercherons donc patiemment des indices, simples morceaux de roche ramassés au hasard des chemins, pour tenter d'aborder l'inabordable question de I 'infini du visible: abordable seulement peut-être par l'esquisse d'une quelconque esthétique de la poussière..."

Barnett Newman's writings reveal him to be an impassioned and articulate analyst of art and society who never hesitated to make his views known and always stood by them. To understand Newman's unique place in the culture of the twentieth century, we must know both his paintings and his words--a knowledge made possible by this long-awaited volume. "Barnett Newman [1905-1970] was a thinker who chose to develop his ideas both in painting and in writing. He was also a citizen who made his acts of painting and writing political. And he was an artist."--Richard Schiff, from the Introduction Barnett Newman's writings reveal him to be an impassioned and articulate analyst of art and society who never hesitated to make his views known and always stood by them.

This book is requisite reading material for any person claiming to be an educated and informed member of the global community. Our understanding in the West of the Eastern cultures, specially the different cultures involving the Muslims, is alarmingly low. The book strives to offer a view from the ground, a keyhole perspective that offers the readers a close and personal peek into some of the ethical underpinnings and the philosophical guiding parameters that inform the Muslim and the Eastern mind. There are over 1.3 billion Muslims in the world. It would be a serious intellectual fallacy to assume that they are all homogenous, or to be more preposterous, assume they are all terrorists. It is extremely tragic that it took the Iranian hostage crisis to teach us about Shia Islam and 9/11 to teach us about Wahabi Islam. Properly acquired knowledge, not just what we learn from the media, will allow us to be anticipatory and rational, rather than being reactive and emotional. For the Muslim reader, specially the children and the youth, the book strives to offer a deeper understanding of Islam, beyond the boundaries of ritual Islam into the wide open space of spiritual and intellectual Islam. To inspire them to appreciate and live up to the wonderful legacy of Islam and not to be mired down into some deviant interpretations of people, with questionable motives. The book is designed to encourage the process of tearing down walls and building bridges. We share common dreams, aspirations and challenges. We share a common globe and a common destiny. The author believes that there are no clashes of civilizations, just clashes of ignorance and misunderstanding.

Disfiguring is constructive or, perhaps more accurately, reconstructive. By exploring the religious dimensions of twentieth-century painting and architecture, he shows how the visual arts continue to serve as a rich resource for the theological imagination.

The widespread assumption that Jewish religious tradition is mediated through words, not pictures, has left Jewish art with no significant role to play in Jewish theology and ethics. Judaism and the Visual Image argues for a Jewish theology of image that, among other things, helps us re-read the creation story in Genesis 1 and to question why images of Jewish women as religious subjects appear to be doubly suppressed by the Second Commandment, when images of observant male Jews have become legitimate, even iconic, representations of Jewish holiness. Raphael further suggests that 'devout beholding' of images of the Holocaust is a corrective to post-Holocaust theologies of divine absence from suffering that are infused by a sub-theological aesthetic of the sublime. Raphael concludes by proposing that the relationship between God and Israel composes itself into a unitary dance or moving image by which each generation participates in a processive revelation that is itself the ultimate work of Jewish art.
