about

In this compelling publication, two masters come face-to-face when the works of Edvard Munch are juxtaposed against Gustave Flaubert’s groundbreaking novel Madame Bovary.  Munch’s art is presented in stills taken from an elaborate video installation, Madame B (2014), created by Michelle Williams Gamaker and the internationally acclaimed cultural theorist, video artist, and curator Mieke Bal. Emma and Edvard Looking Sideways: Loneliness and the Cinematic explores the filmic aspect of Munch’s art by combining contemporary art theory with Bal’s own idiosyncratic way of looking at art – directly and closely. The reader can reflect upon how we view each other in social situations and question what happens when we are denied visual dialogue. 
 
Mieke Bal is a Dutch cultural theorist, video artist, and professor emeritus in literary theory at the University of Amsterdam.
