The very fine ads without products blog points me towards TJ Clark's response to Perry Anderson's The Origins of Postmodernity and Jameson's The Cultural Turn (which originally appeared in the New Left Review back in 2000).
I like TJ Clark. His Farewell to an Idea: Episodes from a History of Modernism is superb; he was involved with the essential Afflicted Powers: Capital and Spectacle in a New Age of War and his latest, The Sight of Death: An Experiment in Art Writing, looks great (sadly, it is with Yale University Press so we have next to no chance of seeing a review copy!)
Last week, the National Portrait Gallery very kindly sent on some lovely volumes (including the handy wee The Irish Literary Revival Movement). One of which was Anthony Bond's Self Portrait: Renaissance to Contemporary. A gorgeous book, this too has an excellent essay by Clark (as well as fine pieces by Ludmilla Jordanova and Joseph Leo Koerner) called The Look of Self-Portraiture (where Clark argues for a version of self-portraiture "in which seeing would be pictured as itself a form of representation"). Oh, if you've not seen it, Koerner's Caspar David Friedrich and the Subject of Landscape is matchless.
