Place and Memory in Visual CultureeBook - 1996
Recent discussions about the culture of images have focused on issues of identity - sexual, racial, national - and the boundaries that define subjectivity. In this context, Victor Burgin adopts a singular critical strategy. He understands images less in traditional terms of the specific institutions that produce them, such as cinema, photography, advertising and television, and more as hybrid mental constructs composed of fragments derived from the heterogeneous sources that toegther constitute the media.
