Product Description

VIDEOLOGY is Louis Armand’s broad-ranging critique of realism in film, visual arts and literature. From Nam June Paik’s experimental TV to the subversive cinema of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Miike Takashi & Leos Carax; from Naked Lunch to the Cyberfeminist Manifesto; from film noir to the “murder of the Real.”

This book also addresses the work of David Lynch, Marc Atkins, Christian Louboutin; Philippe Sollers, Anthony Braxton, Robert Smithson; Lettrism; Blade Runner; David Cronenberg, Terry Gilliam; John Waters, Derek Jarman, Peter Greenaway, Ken Russell; Billy Wilder, John Huston, Howard Hawks; Jean-Luc Godard; Dusan Makavejev; Robert Coover, Hunter S. Thompson; William Gibson, Stelarc, Nina Sellars, Shu Lea Cheang, Linda Dement, & Megumi Igarashi.

Louis Armand is the author of seven novels, including Breakfast at Midnight (2012), described by 3AM magazine’s Richard Marshall as “a perfect modern noir,” & author of critical volumes including The Organ-Grinder’s Monkey: Culture After the Avant-Garde (2013). His screenplay Clair Obscur received honourable mention at the 2009 Trieste International Film Festival. He directs the Centre for Critical & Cultural Theory at Charles University, Prague, & edits the international arts magazine VLAK.

About the Author

Louis Armand is a writer and visual artist who has lived in Prague since 1994. He has worked as an editor and publisher, and as a subtitles technician at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and is an editor of VLAK magazine. He is the author of eight novels, including Breakfast at Midnight in 2012, "a perfect modern noir, presenting Kafka's Prague as a bleak, monochrome singularity of darkness, despair and edgy, dry existentialist hardboil" (Richard Marshall, 3: AM), CAIRO (Equus Press, 2014; short listed for the Guardian's Not-the-Booker Prize), and THE COMBINATIONS (Equus Press, 2016). Described as "Robert Pinget does Canetti (in drag in Yugoslavia)," Armand's third novel Clair Obscur was published by Equus in 2011. His previous novel, Menudo (Antigen), was hailed as "unrelenting, a flying wedge, an encyclopaedia of the wasteland, an uzi assault pumping desolation lead... inspiring!" (Thor Garcia, author of The News Clown). He's also the author of VIDEOLOGY 1 and 2 (Litteraria Pragensia Books, 2015 and 2017)
