The Love Lives of the Artists

Author: Daniel Bullen
Publisher: Counterpoint
ISBN: 9781619021006
Release Date: 2013-02-12
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Of the many freedoms we enjoy in modern society, none is more intoxicating or socially disruptive than the possibility that there might be alternatives to traditional marriage, and no one has shown us how to use this freedom better than the celebrities and artists whose unconventional relationships were evidence of creativity and individuality. But what do their stories tell us? What does the work of art do for an artist as a lover? And how do an artists’ affairs both emerge from and influence their creativity? The Love Lives of the Artists tells the stories of artists who saw the open relationship as the fulfillment of their art. Certainly, some used their open relationships to torture themselves and others; but some were able to ‘put up with a good deal of contradictory nonsense,’ as Georgia O'Keeffe put it—suffering nervous breakdowns or drug and alcohol addictions, along with jealous torments—in order to preserve creative connections to what seemed ‘clear and bright and wonderful’ in their artist lovers. In this engrossing examination, Daniel Bullen sheds light on the love lives of Lou Andreas-Salomé and Rainer Maria Rilke; Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe; Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir; Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, and Henry Miller and Anaïs Nin. Following these artists through their artistic development—from their early relationships to their commitments and subsequent affairs—we can see their relationships as rebellions against modern culture and bourgeois morality, but they also show us the rare fulfillment of creative freedom and shared understanding.

Love Among The Artists

Author: George Bernard Shaw
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9781848547322
Release Date: 2012-08-16
Genre: Fiction

With his inimitable wit and sparkle, George Bernard Shaw brings us the character of Owen Jack, a salty non-conformist composer said to have been suggested by Beethoven. The relations between Jack and the other wayward bohemians of the story with the more conventional socialites around them offers shrewd insight into the nature of the artistic temperament, with its needs for a kind of commitment that overrides the everyday claims of the heart. A novel which anticipated Shaw's first plays by more than ten years, LOVE AMONG THE ARTISTS shows him already mocking the respectable morality of the Victorian society around him.

Hip Hop Decoded

Author: Black Dot
Publisher: MOME Publishing Inc.
ISBN: 097723570X
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Music

SUPERANNO This masterpiece takes its reader from Hip Hop's ancient origin to its modern day Matrix. Never before has a book been written about Hip Hop through the spiritual scope of the culture, or has examined the culture from a mystical perspective. The Black Dot cleverly accomplishes both, while providing plenty of fuel for a conspiracy theorist. Hip Hop Decoded reveals that Hip Hop is far deeper than just beats and rhymes, and masterfully illustrates that each element of Hip Hop (Graffiti, DJ, Emcee, and B-Boy) has an ancient origin (hieroglyphics, drummer, oracle, and dancer), as well as spiritual significance (earth, air, fire, and water).
