The desire to master the entire globe - or at least the known parts of it - is as old as human civilization. Formerly, the pursuit often appeared as intentional and deliberate Control over human action and life-conducts, mostly in concrete manners. In the contemporary World, however, the public and private are no longer simple physical spheres, but rather image spaces created in the visual spaces like photography, television and internet. The ancient human desire to control these spheres takes such forms as Luciano Benetton's ecumenical fantasy to overcome cultural differences and to master the entire globe.

This book attempts to find new ways of tackling the public and private by bringing together the textual and visual ways of approaching them. It seeks for new spaces for intellectual exchange in order to overcome the hierarchical distinction between center and periphery.
