Paperback / softback
Atlas of Emotion by Giuliana Bruno
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an astonishing psychogeography of cultural life, mapping connections between film, architecture, and the body. Traversing a varied and enchanting landscape with forays into the fields of geography, art, architecture, design, cartography and film, Giuliana Bruno's "Atlas of Emotion" is an award-winning and highly original endeavour to map a cultural history of spatio-visual arts. In an evocative montage of words and pictures, she emphasizes that the voyeur must also be the voyageur, that seeing and travelling are irrevocably connected. In so doing, she touches on the art of Gerhard Richter and Annette Messager; the film-making of Peter Greenaway and Michelangelo Antonioni; the origins of the movie palace and its precursors, the camera obscura, the curiosity cabinet, the tableaux vivant; and on her own journeys to her native Naples. Visually luscious and daring in conception, the journey for which Bruno is our cicerone opens new vistas and understandings at every turn.
