In this title, 16 essays apply French philosopher Henri Bergson's philosophy to art. Immanence is a theory of divine presence, in which the divine is found in the material world, not outside of it. This new collection brings the major 20th-century French philosopher Henri Bergson's work on immanence together with the latest ideas in art theory and the practice of immanent art as found in painting, photography and film. It places Bergson's work and influence in a wide historical context and applies a rigorous conceptual framework to contemporary art theory and practice. It features 16 essays from world-renowned art theorists, philosophers and Bergson scholars. The contributors include Iris van der Tuin, Eric Alliez, Simon O'Sullivan and Howard Caygill. It offers a variety of perspectives and methodological approaches that will appeal to both art theorists and practitioners. It explores concepts of rhythmic duration, perception, affectivity, the body, memory and intuition - all of which were first formulated as immanent objects through the work of Bergson.
