Rethinking questions of identity social agency and national affiliation Bhabha provides a working if controversial theory of cultural hybridity one that goes far beyond previous attempts by others In em The Location of Culture em he uses concepts such as mimicry interstice hybridity and liminality to argue that cultural production is always most productive where it is most ambivalent Speaking in a voice that combines intellectual ease with the belief that theory itself can contribute to practical political change Bhabha has become one of the leading post colonial theorists of this era, Bhabha in his preface writes Nations like narratives lose their origins in the myths of time and only fully encounter their horizons in the mind s eye br From this seemingly impossibly metaphorical beginning this volume confronts the realities of the concept of nationhood as it is lived and the profound ambivalence of language as it is written From Gillian Beer s reading of Virginia Woolf Rachel Bowlby s cultural history of em Uncle Tom s Cabin em and Francis Mulhern s study of Leaviste s English ethics to Doris Sommer s study of the magical realism of Latin American fiction and Sneja Gunew s analysis of Australian writing em Nation and Narration em is a celebration of the fact that English is no longer an English national consciousness which is em not em nationalist but is the only thing that will give us an international dimension, Mitra Tabrizian s films and photographs combine techniques from documentary photography reports and advertising to make the viewer aware of the ideologies underlying the construction of cultural identities As critical theorist Stuart Hall explains The images which comprise the projects in Mitra Tabrizian s Beyond the Limits are indeed fictive visual spaces There is evidence everywhere of a photographic practice inscribed by the cinematic Some reference their cinematic equivalents directly for example the deliberate Kitano Tarantino Reservoir Dog echoes and references in the implied narrative of Tabrizian s The Perfect Crime However far from merely mimicking the cinematic discourse of the contemporary crime film or mounting a moral critique of its violence Tabrizian unravels and reworks its logic from the inside Unframing the images from the Pulp Fiction like locations and re staging them as she says within the wider contexts of racial and sexual violence allows the frames to become charged by deeper more unconscious currents permitting these powerful and eloquent contemporary images to signify otherwise The racial and sexual edge so thoroughly disavowed in Tarantino s cynical cartoon eye universe is restored, A significant and extensive book on a major new body of work by the American artist Taryn Simon Taryn Simon A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters I XVIII was produced over a four year period during which Simon travelled the world researching and recording bloodlines and their related stories In each of the eighteen chapters that make up the work the external forces of territory power circumstance or religion collide with the internal forces of psychological and physical inheritance Her subjects feuding families in Brazil victims of genocide in Bosnia the first woman to hijack an aircraft and the living dead in India Her collection is at once cohesive and arbitrary mapping the relationships among chance blood and other components of fate This volume accompanies the exhibitions at Tate Modern London May Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin September and the Museum of Modern Art New York May September
