Screen Presence

Cinema Culture and the Art of Warhol, Rauschenberg, Hatoum and Gordon

Stephen Monteiro

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in Film and Intermediality

Screen Presence explores the intersections of film, popular media and contemporary art through the examples of four internationally celebrated artists. It demonstrates the impact of diverse forms of cinema - from peep shows and the drive-ins to home movies and widescreen formats - on some of the best-known works of Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Mona Hatoum and Douglas Gordon. Relying on untapped historical sources, including mass-circulation magazines and technical guides, this book offers a fresh understanding of these artists, their careers, and the enduring influence of everyday media on how we make and view art.
