Psychic Wounds: On Art and Trauma
(1000 items available)
Trauma in all its forms – internal and external, individual and collective – has been an enduring theme in 20th- and 21st-century art. The proliferation of violent imagery, particularly since the expansion of mass media during and after World War II, has led to artworks that marshal consciousness of traumatic events and their cultural processing. This book also contains an anthology of critical writings on trauma by curators, art historians and theorists.
