Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Ever since Fernand Braudel's Civilization and Capitalism was published in 1979, the epoch between 1500 and 1700 has increasingly been understood as the moment when the economic and colonial forces that govern our world today fell into place. It was in this era that Europe's relationship with Asia first blossomed, and that cultural artifacts began to flow back and forth, each influencing the other. Global Lab compares outstanding artworks and artefacts from various countries, contextualizing them as catalysts of cultural communication. A woodcut by Dürer, illustrated Chinese scrolls, illustrations from the Khevenhüller Chronicle, Turkish fayence, 60 miniatures from the Hamzanama, a sixteenth-century handwritten Mogul document: these are just a few of the varieties of nomadic document that Global Lab juxtaposes. It also features essays by outstanding Orientalists, art historians, and authors such as Salman Rushdie, Barbara Frischmuth and Wheeler M. Thackston, who reinterpret central questions about cultural exchange between Asia and Europe, attempting a perspective that obviates Eurocentrism while giving us a taste of the thrill and novelty that must have attended the exchanges of such delectable objects.

Book Description: Ostfildern: Hatje Cantz, 2009. kartoniert. Originalverpackt. Book Condition: Neu. 368 Seiten, 260 farbige Abbildungen, Texte in deutscher und englischer Sprache, Illustrierter Originalkartonband, neuwertig, originalverpackt. - Das Hamzanama, die Mogulhandschrift des 16. Jahrhunderts, bildet den Ausgangspunkt für eine Betrachtung des spannenden Austauschs zwischen Orient und Okzident zu dieser bedeutenden Zeitenwende. Die Epoche zwischen 1500 und 1700 bedeutete in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Zeitenwende, große Erfindungen und Entdeckungen wurden gemacht, die Kulturen Europas und Asiens traten verstärkt in Kontakt. Man setzte sich mit dem Fremden, dem Anderen auseinander und wurde davon beeinflusst. Die Publikation stellt herausragende Kunstwerke aus der damaligen Zeit und aus verschiedenen Kulturkreisen in ihrer Eigenschaft als Kommunikationsmedien einander gegenüber: Ein Holzschnitt Dürers, chinesische Rollbilder, Bilder der Khevenhüller Chronik, türkische Fayencen und 60 Miniaturen des Hamzanama, einer Mogulhandschrift des 16. Jahrhunderts. Essays herausragender Orientalisten, Kunsthistoriker und Autoren wie Salman Rushdie, Barbara Frischmuth oder Wheeler M. Thackston unternehmen aus dezidiert heutigem Blickpunkt eine Neuinterpretation zentraler Fragen zum Kulturaustausch zwischen Asien und Europa und schärfen den Blick für eine Sichtweise, die ohne Eurozentrismen auskommt.
