Audiovisions : Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History
by Siegfried Zielinski
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press 1999
Number of pages: 360
The book reconstructs the complex genesis of cinema and television as historically relative - and thus finite - cultural forms, focussing on the dynamics and tension in the interaction between the apparatus and its uses. It is also a plea for 'staying power' in studies of cultural technology and technological culture of film.
