Description

Edges of Empire is a timely reassessment of the history and legacy of Orientalist art and visual culture through its focus on the intersection between modernization, modernism and Orientalism. Through the analysis of Ottoman and North African art practices, as well as the visual culture of European Orientalism, the essays in this volume explore the connections and cross-fertilizations that occur across cultural boundaries. Contested identities and new definitions of self are highlighted through topics as diverse as 19th century monuments to Empire, cultural cross-dressing, performance and display at the international exhibitions and contemporary museological practice. This is a goundbreaking anthology that will be of great interest to scholars and students of art history, architecture, museum studies and cultural and postcolonial studies.
