The Art of Voyeurism, Hardback Book

The Art of Voyeurism Hardback

Description

What do we actually see and how has it conditioned our way of thinking?

This is the question and starting-point for an investigation that will span the vast panorama of imagemanagement that bombards our visual culture. The Art of Voyeurism is an examination, exploring our visual senses that have been instigated through art and all its glorious side-effects since the beginning of man's time on this evolving planet. This exploration is based on visual management and the methods in which the artist, throughout history, has been manipulating history to forward his own desire and career.

It explores how, through predetermined acts of voyeuristic ideas, artists have incorporated their concepts within their surrounding environments and personal mandates in advancing their reputations.

The Art of Voyeurism examines and questions our acceptance of the many facets of art.

It examines how the artists' own desires have been morphed into contemporary society through their many varied representations and executions, and how they have found ways of manipulating our sense of seeing into history textbooks.
