Embodied Fantasies: From Awe to Artifice


Edited By Suzanne Anker and Sabine Flach

Embodied Fantasies, a concept central to art history, theory and practice is concurrently a topic debated in the fields of the neuro- and cognitive sciences, philosophy and phenomenology.
This volume focuses on notions of embodiment as they relate to sexuality, aesthetics, epistemology, perception, and fantasy itself.
Approaches to modes of fantasies are explored beyond traditional conceptions to include complex thinking processes, subjectivity and inter-subjective experiences. What function do fantasies and their images possess in relation to art as a form of knowledge production?

Acknowledgements The publication Embodied Fantasies: Between Awe and Artifice is the first vol- ume of our book series Art / Knowledge / Theory. The theoretical basis, meth- odological approaches and interdisciplinary topicswere developed for the Peter Lang publishing group.

An endeavor like Embodied Fantasies is not possible without the confi- dence of institutional support. Our special acknowledgements go to the Presi- dent of the School of Visual Arts, David Rhodes, the Executive Vice-President, Anthony Rhodes and to our administrative staff. We are indebted to all of our colleagues in the Fine Arts Department who generously supported the preparation and realization of the conference with enthusiasm, ardor and reliability, namely: Anne M. Clark, Erik Guzman, Kari Britta Lorenson, Tarah Rhoda, Mark Rosen, Henry Sanchez, Gary Sherman, Luis Navarro, Amy Stienbarger, Joe Tekippe and Daniel Wapner for their time and efforts.
