"Random Access: On crisis and its Metaphors brings together a spectrum of critical and creative responses by writers and artists to the formative and transformative drifts of contemporary culture and the determining cultural and political conditions of modernity. The topics range from the crisis in culture to the culture of crisis; from the ethics of difference to the aesthetics of distance; from the representation of dreams to the iconography of AIDS; and includes challenging re-evaluations of the dogmasconcerning the art of Nazi Germany, the reflections on time and tradition in the writing of Walter Benjamin, and the politics of transnational visual culture in South Africa.
The diversity of argument, the randomness o "Random Access", both accidental and inevitable, provides a framework for a debate accessible to readers of all humanistic disciplines while offering a particularly valuable insight into the mechanims which sustain the pedagogy of the "postmodern" student of art.
