Concentrationary art : Jean Cayrol, the Lazarean and the everyday in post-war film, literature, music and the visual arts / edited by Griselda Pollock and Max Silverman.

Publication | Library Call Number: PQ2605.A873 Z57 2019

"Largely forgotten over the years, the seminal work of French poet, novelist and camp survivor Jean Cayrol has experienced a revival in the French-speaking world since his death in 2005. His concept of a concentrationary art--the need for an urgent and constant aesthetic resistance to the continuing effects of the concentrationary universe--proved to be a major influence for Hannah Arendt and other writers and theorists across a number of disciplines. Concentrationary Art presents the first translation into English of Jean Cayrol's key essays on the subject, as well as the first book-length study of how we might situate and elaborate his concept of a Lazarean aesthetic in cultural theory, literature, cinema, music and contemporary art"-- Provided by publisher.
