Paleobiologia dell'immagine. Sul futuro della cultura visuale


The attention of contemporary visual culture for the immemorial dimensions of our visual experience can begin, symbolically, with the volume that Tom Mitchell, then an established literary theorist but with particular attention to images and their social circulation, dedicates 1998 to the Image of Dinosaurs in Global Pop Culture, The Last Dinosaur Book. Apparently it is a book about a pop icon, conceived on the long wave of the revival inaugurated by Steven Spielberg's film, but in reality it is a text of unsurpassed theoretical and methodological lucidity, worthy of appearing among the masterpieces of contemporary visual culture.
