Atlas Of Emotion - Softcover


“One of those critical works packed with learning and insights that at the same time takes you on an exhilarating ride through its author’s imagination.” – Marina Warner, Guardian

  • Atlas of Emotion is a highly original endeavour to map the cultural terrain of spatio-visual arts. 
  • In an evocative blend of words and pictures, Giuliana Bruno emphasizes the connections between “sight” and “site” and “motion” and “emotion.” In so doing, she touches on the art of Gerhard Richter and Louise Bourgeois, the filmmaking of Peter Greenaway and Michelangelo Antonioni, media archaeology and the origins of the museum, and her own journeys to her native Naples. 
  • Visually luscious and daring in conception, Bruno’s book opens new vistas and understandings at every turn. 

Giuliana Bruno is Emmet Blakeney Gleason Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University. Atlas of Emotion won the 2003 Kraszna-Krausz Book Award in Culture and History—a prize given to “the world’s best book on the moving image.
