More Book Reviews: Wish for Amnesia & State of Grace

The book is a kaleidoscope of references to obscure and eclectic subjects evinced by Jewel, the self-indulgent Caroline, the in-over-his-head Jack, and the evil godmother Beatrice. As such, they are delightful to experience, especially since most are explained in one way or another saving the reader a trip to her Oxford dictionary or Britannica encyclopedia, or (more likely these days) his run to a computer to fact check with Google or Wikipedia. — from Wish for Amnesia, by Barbara Rosenthal

A Crack in the Sidewalk/Barbara Rosenthal

    Is There a Universal Esthetic? Naifs, Innocence, Education, Esthetics   by Barbara Rosenthal Contributing Columnist NYC, Jan 1, 2018. It all comes down to the same question every time, doesn’t it? No matter where we start, even in the middle here like this. Always, communication, especially in the arts, comes down to the question of universal vs. specific — of whether what we are transmitting will reach the mind/heart/soul/psyche of its perceiver because a) we share a common human trait (or/and/but if so, in what measure) b) we share a common element of culture. (Certainly not limited...

A Crack in the Sidewalk/Barbara Rosenthal

  A Crack in the Sidewalk: Journaling   by Barbara Rosenthal — NYC, Nov. 1, 2017. Welcome back again to this monthly column. Looks like the way it began last month is the way it will go every month. That particular incidents will trigger the topics, some of which were listed in that September column. What pulled my trigger this month, for a column on keeping a journal, was a startling communiqué to my publisher, Joseph Quintela, by an investigative reporter from the Italian daily, La Repubblica, Andrea Lattanzi. Seems that a 1967 photograph of me turned up in...

Barbara Rosenthal: A Crack in the Sidewalk

    A Crack in the Sidewalk Barbara Rosenthal   — NYC, Sept 1, 2017. My monthly column A Crack in the Sidewalk is by this first sentence here now, back upon the Earth. Greetings, dear readers! The column logo is what it looked like when it first launched, in 1963 for The Franklin Square Bulletin when I was fifteen. It’s back, and you are reading it now as a result of several factors (as are all phenomena that make it into reality). The intervening 54 years notwithstanding, my old Bulletin column and new one here in Ragazine are a continuum. The column will continue its “large” view approach, looking at its topics in strata. In Franklin Square my ambience was an “upper-working class” neighborhood; in NYC it is the “undercurrent” artworld. A Crack in the Sidewalk will address the practice and politics of this segment, and if you read Ragazine it is OUR segment. The word “undercurrent” comes from the cozy artspace at 215 E. 5th St. run by Katie Peyton, where a chance conversation out on the sidewalk a few months ago (Jan. 11, 2017) sealed my mind to take a crack at it again. I emerged up the narrow wrought-iron steps from Savannah Spirit’s strident, daring curatorial in the basement clubhouse. Following me up the stairs was legendary gallerist Sefan Stux. On the sidewalk was painter Mike...

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
