Zidane, A 21st century portrait

Pennings, Mark W. (2007) Zidane, A 21st century portrait. The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art, 8(1), pp. 145-147.


This review of Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno's film 'Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait' considers their treatment of celebrity in the 21st century as a portrait of the nature of self in a hyper-mediated society. It surmises that hyper-mediation does not explain the psychology of a celebrity as much as it informs us about the mediated image-sphere itself.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
