Television, Fashion, Art and Film

This accessible introduction to the exciting field of contemporary
Spanish visual culture is the first of its kind. It combines
cultural context with close readings of particular works.




Going beyond the field of cinema, in which Spain is an
acknowledged leader, Smith examines new developments in television,
where original and innovative series drama has recently blossomed.
He also explores Spanish fashion, where 'classic' design is married
to high tech production and distribution.





Two aspects of Spanish visual art are considered: the career of
Miquel Barceló, global artist and pure painter, and Basque
conceptual art which, through photography and installation, puts a
new spin on international questions of gender and sexuality.


Finally, Contemporary Spanish Culture examines Catalan
independent cinema and the most recent work of Spain's best known
director, Pedro Almodóvar, who has resurrected a genre long
considered dead: the art movie.





This innovative new book provides an ideal introduction for
undergraduates and will be essential reading for those working in
Hispanic studies, cultural studies, and film.
