Women in graphic design 1890-2012 = Frauen und Grafik-Design( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do apparently so few women feature in the history of design? Why is it still the case that so few women speak at conferences? Why are previously well-known women "forgotten"? What effects does the gender debate have on today's everyday working life? Are women judged today solely on the basis of their quality of work? Since professionalization began, female graphic designers have been working actively and successfully, but the artificial synthesis of masculinity and artistic genius has repeatedly prevented women-with few exceptions-to be recognised in "official" design history. Still today, despite the claim that the gender issue is obsolete in graphic design, only a tiny percentage of active female designers enjoy public acclaim. This opulently illustrated volume finally sets out to fill this gap. It presents the most significant female designers and portrays their paths to professionalization, with numerous short biographies alongside essays, sources and detailed discussions

"Contemporary artist Andrea Zittel's A-Z Enterprise is an investigation into all aspects of daily life--including shelter, furniture and clothing, which she designs. Architect Marcel Breuer said of his 1966 Modern design for New York's Whitney Museum, "It should transform the vitality of the street into the sincerity and profundity of art." Charting the reciprocal relationship between art and design, this fascinating volume features paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, digital animations, interiors and furniture by 68 artists, designers and architects, including Caspar David Friedrich, Henry van de Velde, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Zaha Hadid, Erwan Bouroullec and Tobias Rehberger. It highlights a trend, from Romanticism through the present, that has artists functioning as designers or architects while architects and designers are influenced by art."--Jacket
