Chris Burden : beyond the limits = jenseits der Grenzen by Chris Burden( Book )

21 editions published in 1996 in 4 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burden has a love-hate relationship with the machine: Suspended from the ceiling of the gallery or presented in glorious isolation, the toy-like machine becomes an object of fear and worship, however ironically, a mysterious idol to be propitiated and venerated, even if it no longer works. Thus art makes the machine benign by turning into a strange toy. It masters the machine in a playful, Machiavellian act of homage to it. Burden implicitly sets the cunning of the artist against the engineer who masterminded the machine, implying that the artist can magically undo the human damage the latter unwittingly did with his machine
Dagobert Peche and the Wiener Werkstätte( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dagobert Peche (1887-1923) was one of the key figures of the Austrian arts and crafts movement. Along with Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, Peche determined the character of the Wiener Werkstatte with his designs. Hoffmann, who first hired Peche as his assistant but was later strongly influenced by him, wrote after Peche's death in 1923: "Dagobert Peche was Austria's greatest genius in ornamentation since the days of the Baroque ... All of Germany has experienced a new stylistic epoch thanks to Peche's designs." The contribution made by Peche to decorative arts is now being given the critical attention it deserves, especially against the backdrop of postmodernism

Peter Eisenman : Barfuss auf weiss glühenden Mauern = Barefoot on white-hot walls by Peter Eisenman( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Peter Eisenman. Barefoot on White-Hot Walls"--Published on the occasion of the eponymous personal exhibition at the MAK Vienna - gives profound insight into the work of Peter Eisenman, without doubt one of the most interesting architects of our time." "The main focus is on Eisenman's most recent projects such as the "City of Culture of Galicia" in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" in Berlin, Germany. Likewise, the publication extensively documents, in text and illustrations, spectacular competition entries such as his Naples TAV Railway Station or the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris. Drawings, renderings, and photographs of built projects introduce readers to complex design processes which always also relate to fundamental questions of architecture." "One special feature of the book is the documentation of Eisenman's exhibition installation developed especially for the MAK show and epitomizing his effort to overcome conventional spatial concepts as well as his renunciation of common notions of purpose, orientation, and proportion."--Jacket
James Turrell, the other horizon by James Turrell( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in German and English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Installationskunst med lys af den amerikanske kunstner James Turrell (f. 1943)
Anish Kapoor : shooting into the corner by Anish Kapoor( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Judd : architecture by Donald Judd( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Donald Judd was one of the leading artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His "specific objects"--Which he refused to call sculpture - represent a radical and revolutionary use of space, scale, and materials. By contrast, the primary concern in his many drafts and designs for architecture and furniture is utility, although the formal relationship to his artistic objects is plain." "All facets of Judd's work converge in Marfa, West Texas, where he systematically turned an abandoned fort into one of the world's major ensembles of contemporary art. This book uses drawings, plans, and photographs of Marfa to illustrate Judd's radical approach to architecture and design, and to demonstrate the meticulous attention he paid to the settings for his installations. Photographs of Judd's aluminum and wooden furniture series and examples of his plywood tables, chairs, and shelves display his stringent application of aesthetic brevity and precision in form and material." "First published in German in 1991, this revised and expanded edition contains additional illustrations and several essays that have not previously appeared in English. Donald Judd's original contribution, an anti-war essay written during the 1991 Gulf War, is complemented by a second essay on the relationship between art and architecture."--Jacket
Visionary clients for new architecture by Peter Noever( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and Dutch and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of architects talking about their designs, this volume puts clients in the spotlight who are responsible for the renewal of architectural projects: Thomas Krens, director of the Guggenheim Foundation who contracted Frank O Gehry for the new Guggenheim museum in Bilbao and Rolf Fehlbaum, director of the Vitra company, including a Design museum. There generally is a tricky balance of power between the architect en the client. Considering that standardized construction methods dominate the world, these examples of succesful collaboration provide an alternative to the usual way of commissioning a building. A whole chapter is dedicated to new museum buildings, now a days represented like a work of art itself

These and many others are presented through photographs, renderings, planning materials and sketches and offer the reader a look at realized structures as well as construction projects that are still in the planning stages. Texts from Jeffrey Kipnis, Sylvia Lavin and Peter Noever highlight the relationships between the specific work of COOP HIMMELB(L)AU and architecture, history, literature, film and art. Project-specific and programmatic texts from COOP HIMMELB(L)AU offer an in-depth look at the conceptual practices of the architects, whose work is some of the most innovative and important of our time

The discursive museum by Peter Noever( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debate between theorists and artists whether museums may be regarded as edifices of thought emancipated from visual and imaginary contents. The struggle to survive for museums is taking precedence over the work the institutions should be doing. The museum must always be a place that makes art accessible to the people. Art should recover its openness and its freedom to experiment
