Cultura visual contemporánea

Jorge Sebastián (ed.)
Cultura visual contemporánea
Valencia, Fundación Mainel, 2007
This book gathers the contributions to the IX Symposium “Contemporary Visual Culture”, organized by the Mainel Foundation in Valencia City (Spain) in 2006. For the Round Table Discussion on the topic “Myths for the Masses and Visual Media: From Olympus to Coated Paper”, I wrote an essay entitled “Elementos para una ética heroica” [“Elements for a Heroic Ethics”] in Spanish. In it, I analyze the role of myths in the building up of the European imaginary and the way it is depicted in modern film and music productions.
