READING: This compact, indispensable overview answers a vexed question: Why do so many works of modern and postmodern literature and art seem designed to appear 'strange', and how can they still cause pleasure in the beholder? To help overcome the initial barrier caused by this 'strangeness', the general reader is given an initial, non-technical description of the 'aesthetic of the strange' as it is experienced in the reading or viewing process. There follows a broad survey of modern and postmodern trends, illustrating their staggering variety and making plain the manifold methods and strategies adopted by writers and artists to 'make it strange'. The book closes with a systematic summary of the theoretical underpinnings of the 'aesthetic of the strange', focussing on the ways in which it differs from both the earlier 'aesthetic of the beautiful' and the 'aesthetic of the sublime'. It is made amply clear that the strangeness characteristic of modern and postmodern art has ushered in an entirely new, 'third' kind of aesthetic – one that has undergone further transformation over the past two decades. Beyond its usefulness as a practical introduction to the 'aesthetic of the strange', the present study also takes up the most recent, cutting-edge aspects of scholarly debate, while initiates are offered an original approach to the theoretical implications of this seminal phenomenon.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: A unique and hopeful story of how one woman and her family were transformed by her child's multiple disabilities and inability to talk and how she, in turn, transformed a community. This intimate, no-holds barred memoir shares one family's experiences with a child who is both autistic and physically disabled. It is a story of infectious laughter, blood on the floor, intense physical conflict, and of two little girls growing up in the shadow of their charming and fitful brother. And it is the story of a mother and writer and the illuminating effect of imagining the world through the eyes of her beautiful, charismatic, and nonverbal son, Felix. Felix and his sisters inspire Eliza to start Extreme Kids, a community center that connects families with children with disabilities through the arts and play, and transform how she saw herself and the world. She writes of the joy this project brings her, as well as the disconnect of being lauded for helping others at the same time that she cannot help her own son. As Felix grows bigger and stronger, his assaults against himself grow more destructive. When his bruised limbs and face prompt Child Services to investigate the Factors for abuse, Eliza realizes how dangerous her home has become. Strange Beauty is a personal story, but it shines a light on the combustible conditions many families are living in at this moment. The United States offers parents whose children are prone to violence very little help. That Eliza's story ends happily, with Felix thriving at Crotched Mountain School, is due more to luck than policy. There are few such schools and many such children. When children are violent, we fail to account for the internal and external pressures that lead to violence. This is both cruel and counterproductive, for people with disabilities have much to teach us, if we will only listen.

READING: The exhibition Strange Beauty illustrates how differently and even unexpectedly artists choose to approach or exploit beauty as a subject, often hidden. It features artists from the second half of the twentieth century up to the present, both renowned and young contemporaries. A choice of different media, techniques and genres interact with each other to lend vitality and power of expression to the subject. The exhibition focuses on painting, sculpture and photography. Portraits from the 1950s and 1960s by photographers Lucien Clergue and Diane Arbus are the earliest exhibits of this show. Paintings by Gerhard Hoehme, Chris Reinecke and Norbert Tadeusz, a drawing by Gerhard Altenbourg and a sculpture by Magdalena Abakanowicz further make up the historic part of the exhibition. The contemporary section comprises, amongst others, photographs by Roger Ballen, Joachim Brohm, Jürgen Klauke, Richard Mosse and Thomas Wrede; paintings by Leiko Ikemura, Susanne Kühn, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, Heribert C. Ottersbach, Norbert Schwontkowski and Miriam Vlaming; drawings by Monica Ursina Jäger, Robert Longo, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra and Robert Wilson; as well as sculptures by Bertozzi & Casoni, Gehard Demetz and Katsura Funakoshi.

Through a combination of ancient home remedy recipes, famous images from art history, and amusing anecdotes, Strange Beauty shows what makeup can reveal about the people who wear it.
