Ana Hedberg Olenina is Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature and Media Studies at Arizona State University.
Psychomotor Aesthetics offers a fantastic addition to the growing collection of scholarly work on modernism in its relation to contemporaneous sciences of the body. Impressive in its geographical reach, the book makes a compelling case for placing corporeal movement (and specifically the bi-directional relation between bodily motion and mental states) at the center of intersecting and competing modernist aesthetic projects, from futurist poetry to
Eisensteinian filmmaking. * Michael Cowan, Professor of Film and Media History, University of St Andrews * A fascinating study about the expansion of modern psychology into the field of artistic practice and the countermovement of poets and film directors into the explorations of arts' effects and affects, stretching from the experiments of Russian physiologists and theories of Soviet Futurists and Constructivists to the post humanist condition. * Oksana Bulgakowa, , author of Sergei Eisenstein: A Biography *
