    Art in mind: how contemporary images shape thought.Ernst van Alphen - 2005 - Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
    Art has the power to affect our thinking, changing not only the way we view and interact with the world but also how we create it. In Art in Mind , Ernst van Alphen probes this idea of art as a commanding force with the capacity to shape our intellect and intervene in our lives. Rather than interpreting art as merely a reflection of our social experience or a product of history, van Alphen here argues that art is a historical (...)

    Attention for Distraction: Modernity, Modernism and Perception.Ernst van Alphen - 2017 - Text Matters - a Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture 7 (7):87-97.
    Particularly in the latter half of the nineteenth century sensorial experiences changed at breakneck speed. Social and technological developments of modernity like the industrial revolution, rapid urban expansion, the advance of capitalism and the invention of new technologies transformed the field of the senses. Instead of attentiveness, distraction became prevalent. It is not only Baudelaire who addressed these transformations in his poems, but they can also be recognized in the works of novelist Gustave Flaubert and painter Edward Munch. By means (...)

    Staging the Archive: Art and Photography in the Age of New Media.Ernst van Alphen - 2014 - Reaktion Books.

Through a variety of media, methodologies and perspectives, the artists surveyed here also challenge the principles on which the notions of organization, evidence and documentation are built. The book shows how artists have, over recent decades, read (...)

    The Politics of Exclusion, or, Reanimating the Archive.Ernst van Alphen - 2015 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 24 (49).
    The notion of the archive covers two kinds of knowledge: knowledge and memories that can be articulated and objectified by convergent discursive rules, and knowledge that remains overlooked because of the same discursive rules, now working as rules of exclusion. Many contemporary art practices foreground these exclusions from the archive by presenting them as yet another archive. Artists highlight this residue of the archive by collecting images that were until then not considered to be archivable, that is, of any value (...)
