Exposure: Revealing Bodies, Unveiling Representations


Add your own review!

Overview

The notion of exposure underlies much modern thinking about identity, representation, ethics, desire and sexuality. This provocative notion is explored in a collection of essay selected form, and inspired by, the proceedings of a conference held in the Department of French at the University of Cambridge in 2002. The authors engage with exposure as both object and mode of representation in a range of cultural media: literature, critical theory, visual art and film. They analyse a variety of works from the medieval, early-modern, and modern periods, examining not only canonical texts such as Montaigne's Essais but also lesser-studied works such as the psychoanalytic theory of Didier Anzieu, the photomontage self-portraits of Claude Cahun, and the novel La Nouvelle Pornographie by Marie Nimier. This volume thus both illustrates and, more importantly, interrogates the richness of the term exposure, in a way that is stimulating for students and researchers alike.
