Traversing a varied and enchanting landscape with forays into the fields of geography, art, architecture, design, cartography and film, Giuliana Bruno's Atlas of Emotion is a highly original endeavor to map a cultural history of spatio-visual arts. Throughout these pages Bruno insists on the inseparability of seeing and travelling. She emphasizes that the voyeur must also be the voyageur, that 'sight' and 'site' are irrevocably connected. In so doing, she touches on the art of Gerhard Richter and Annette Messager; the film-making of Peter Greenaway and Michaelangelo Antonioni; the origins of the movie palace and its precursors, the camera obscura, the curiosity cabinet, the tableaux vivant; and on her own journeys to her native Naples.
