Zhadans Helden kämpfen gegen die Verfinsterung ihres Lebens in der Ukraine. Sie sind Rebellen der Existenz. Und vor dem Hintergrund des Krieges ringen sie um ihre Liebe, um ein mutiges, freies Verhältnis zueinander und um die eine Geschichte, die irgendwann alle über dieses Chaos erzählen werden. Mesopotamien ist das Meisterwerk von Serhij Zhadan, eine leidenschaftliche Liebeserklärung an seine Heimat. »Zhadan hat ein so wehmütiges, gut gelauntes und kämpferisches Buch geschrieben, wie es lange keins mehr gab. Ein lebendiges Denkmal für die ideale Stadt Charkiw, die bedrohte Stadt, das bedrohte Land. Dabei ist er nicht einen Moment kitschig oder folkloristisch, dafür sind seine Figuren viel zu besoffen, naiv, selbstverliebt und mitunter auch brutal.« Volker Weidermann, Der Spiegel

This is a truly encyclopedic survey of artists’ responses - both official and personal - to the horrors of war. 'Art and War' reveals the sheer diversity of artists’ portrayals of this most devastating aspect of the human condition - from the ‘heroic’ paintings of Benjamin West and John Singer Sargent to brutal and iconic works by artists from Goya to Picasso, and the equally oppositional work of Leon Golub, Nancy Spero and others who reacted with fury to the Vietnam War. Laura Brandon pays particular attention to work produced in response to World War I and World War II, as well as to more recent art and memorial work by artists as diverse as Barbara Kruger, Alfredo Jar and Maya Lin. She looks finally to the reactions of contemporary artists such as Langlands and Bell to the US invasion in 2001 of Afghanistan and the ‘War on Terror’.

The artistic traditions of Mesopotamia, or ancient Iraq, are among the oldest, and the richest, in the world. In this flat, fertile land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the ancient Sumerians created, before 3000 BC, the world's first advanced civilization, and each of the many powers that succeeded them left its own distinctive imprint on the region's culture. The broad chronological scope of this illustrated volume - from the fourth millennium BC to the fourteenth century AD - gives us a new appreciation of both the diversity and the continuity of Mesopotamian art history. Its text, written by leading scholars of Near Eastern art and archaeology, provides an erudite yet accessible overview of each major phase in this eventful artistic saga. The masterpieces discussed in these chapters are depicted in 217 illustrations, most of them full-color photographs, and following the main text is a visual guide to Iraq's principal archaeological sites, which provides a further 247 black-and-white photographs, maps, and plans. With its authoritative, up-to-date text and this wealth of illustrations, The Art and Architecture of Mesopotamia is an invaluable publication for anyone with an interest in humanity's cultural heritage.
