Abstract (English)

"The essays explore the concept of fetichism as developed by Marx and Freud, and how it relates to the ways in which artistic texts work. Laura Mulvey here returns to some of the knottier issues in contemporary cultural theory, especially the links between looking, fantasy and theorisation, on the one hand, and the processes of historical change on the other. What are the modes of address that characterise 'societies of spectacle'? How might 'curiosity' be directed towards deciphering the politics of popular culture?" -- Back cover.
