THIRD: NEW TEXTS
During last month I occasionally came across two very interesting texts of American scholars. Both texts are dedicated to the images and their role, the ways of perception and understanding, the medieval world in relationship with our contemporary one. Hope you like them:
"Performative Icon" by Bissera V. Pentcheva
Video Illustration to the "Performative Icon" by Bissera V. Pentcheva
"From Constantinople to Silicon Valley: a Byzantine approach to IBooks" by Roland Betancourt
As always, we are happo to hear from you!
And - more news in the nearest future :)
With warmest regards,
Philip Davydov and Olga Shalamova
