Museum Storage and Meaning

Author: Mirjam Brusius

Genre: Art

Beyond their often beautiful exhibition halls, many museums contain vast, hidden spaces in which objects may be stored, conserved, or processed. Museums can also include unseen archives, study rooms, and libraries which are inaccessible to the public. This collection of essays focuses on this domain, an area that has hitherto received little attention. Divided into four sections, the book critically examines the physical space of museum storage areas, the fluctuating historical fortunes of exhibits, the growing phenomenon of publicly visible storage, and the politics of objects deemed worthy of collection but unsuitable for display. In doing so, it explores issues including the relationship between storage and canonization, the politics of collecting, the use of museum storage as a form of censorship, the architectural character of storage space, and the economic and epistemic value of museum objects. Essay contributions come from a broad combination of museum directors, curators, archaeologists, historians, and other academics.

Shock Suspenstories

Author: Al Feldstein
Publisher: Gemstone Pub
ISBN: 188847257X
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

EC Comics (Entertaining Comics) were all published from the late 1940s until around 1956, when the Comics Code Authority whitewashed all comic books to remove all themes of horror and violence. Psychiatrist Fredric Wertham and Senator Estes Kefauver's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency attacked horror comics as causes of the rise in juvenile delinquency and crimes by minors. These comic books were accused of having no redeeming value to society and were effectively banned by the actions of these groups in creating the Comics Code. EC Comics were superior to other comics of the 1950s because of a higher quality of writing and artwork, and they were widely imitated by other comics publishers. The subject matter for EC Comics were horror, science fiction/fantasy, crime stories, war stories and stories with a social message that generally had a twist or "shock" ending. This volume reprints the first six complete issues (24 stories) of the comic book Shock SuspenStories, originally published in 1952, and features a mixture of horror, crime, war and social issue-based stories, characterized by ironic "O. Henry" type twist endings, and including the first attempts in the comics medium to teach moral lessons about racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, gang violence, corrupt officials, etc.

Howard Nostrand s Nightmares

Author: Craig Yoe
Publisher: Idea & Design Works Llc
ISBN: 1631401513
Release Date: 2014-12-23
Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

Howard Nostrand's brilliant horror comics art was done during the height of the criticism against comics that resulted in government investigations and the Comics Code. Nostrand's style was an incredibly skilled, perfect mashup of the EC artists Wally Wood and Jack Davis. Nostrand assisted Bob Powell (the subject of the popular book Bob Powell's Terror), but these comics are pure Nostrand, the very best of his fearsome comics! Like Powell, Nostrand could be as innovative as Will Eisner, another influence on the artist. Featuring five stories painstakingly reproduced from rare, original art, Nostrand's Nightmares includes a profusely illustrated Introduction by Eisner-winner Craig Yoe.
