The photographer Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) was one of the most significant Italian artists of the late twentieth century. This volume - the first scholarly book-length publication on Ghirri to appear in English - introduces his photographic and critical work to a broader audience and positions Ghirri as a key voice within global artistic debates. It breaks new ground by approaching Ghirri's œuvre from a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives, in order to take account of the breadth of his interests, the variety of his projects and the far-reaching impact of his work as a practitioner, writer, theorist and curator, both in the field of photography and beyond. Drawing on different approaches from disciplines including art history, theory of photography, literary and cultural studies, architecture, cartography, and place and landscape studies, the essays in the volume show how Ghirri redefined contemporary photography and helped shape the �spatial� or �landscape� turn in Italy and further afield.

The 'image' of terrorism constructs itself from a complex interaction between attacks, pictures, texts and criticism. it determines the idea, representation and imitation of politically and religously motivated violence, which uses terror as an effect. The history of the images and terms associated with terrorism spans from the church portal to the internet portal. Alongside the revolution in the media of Modernism, forms of terror have also changed through terrorism. This study follows the development of a terrorist media sphere from an art historical and cultural perspective, beginning with the French Revolution, through the RAF, and leading to the so-called Islamic State. 00The German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen claimed that the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 could be viewed as 'the greatest artwork ever made'. The artist was rightly criticized for his provocation. However, he prominently stood for a reaction from within the art system, which can be called the 'Stockhausen Syndrome'. Stockhausen's art critical verdict on 9/11 has unleashed virulent questions about the revolutionary avant-garde that have circulated for more than 200 years.
