Hans Richter la traversée du siècle : [exposition, Metz, Centre Pompidou-Metz, 28 septembre 2013-24 février 2014 by Hans Richter( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : Hans Richter (1888-1976) a traversé toute l'histoire de l'art du XXe siècle : issu de l'expressionnisme, à la croisée du mouvement Dada, du constructivisme et du néo-plasticisme, il est l'inventeur du film abstrait et l'un des acteurs majeurs des avant-gardes des années 1910 et 1920. De Theo van Doesburg à El Lissitzky, de Vladimir Malévitch à Ludwig Mies van des Rohe ou Marcel Duchamp, il a tissé des liens d'amitié et collaboré avec bon nombre d'artistes européens de premier plan avant d'accompagner le basculement de la scène artistique de l'Europe vers les Etats-Unis, où il émigre au début des années 1940, et où il contribuera, à travers ses expositions, ses publications et son enseignement, à écrire l'histoire du mouvement moderne. mais la vie de Richter n'est pas limitée à la sphère de l'histoire de l'art : elle se confond avec l'Histoire tout court, souvent tragique, du siècle dernier, de la Grande Guerre à la révolution spartakiste et à la République de Weimar, de l'effondrement économique à l'avènement du nazisme et à la persécutuion des juifs. L'exposition "Hans Richter. La traversée du siècle" présentée au Centre Pompidou Metz dresse ainsi le portrait d'un artiste-cinéaste qui a constitué un nouveau système des arts dans lequel le film occupe une place déterminante et d'un grand témoin de son temps, résolument engagé dans le réel

Hans Richter. Begegnungen by Hans Richter( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The oeuvre of Hans Richter (1888-1976) spanned nearly seven decades. Born in Berlin, he was one of the most significant champions of modernism. Berlin, Paris, Munich, Zurich, Moscow and New York were the major stations of his life. He was a painter and draughtsman, a Dadaist and a Constructivist, a film maker and a theoretician, as well as a great teacher. His great scroll collages remain icons of art history to this day. His work is characterised by a virtually unparalleled interpenetration of different artistic disciplines. The link between film and art was his major theme. Many of the most famous artists of the first half of the twentieth century were among his friends. Now, for the first time since the 1980s, an exhibition is being dedicated to this great Berlin artist. It includes over 140 works, including his major films and some fifty works by artists whom he influenced. Hans Richter worked with multimedia in an era when this term hadn't even been invented. He regarded film as part of modern art
Hans Richter il ritmo dell'avanguardia : Museo d'Arte Lugano, Riva Caccia 5, 31 agosto - 23 novembre 2014 by Hans Richter( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans Richter - poliedrico disegnatore, incisore, pittore, cineasta e scrittore - fu prima di tutto un artista caratterizzato da una forte impornta sociale, la sua arte raggiungeva tutta la sua potenza e il significato nell'interazione con chi gli stava attorno. Tali interazioni, elencate nel suo libro del 1973 all'interno della rubrica Begegnungen (Incontri), lo posero in contatto con i maggiori esponenti del modernismo europero degli inizi del ventesimo secolo. I suoi fondamentali e straordinari contribui spaziano, tracciando una traiettora curciale, dall'Espressionismo attraverso il Dadaismo, il Costruttivismo, il Surrealismo e generi cinematografici completamente nuovi, per proseguire poi verso la scena postbellica newyorkese, dove frequentò la comunità degli artisti emigrati e i pionieri dell New America Cinema."

Raoul Hausmann et les avant-gardes by Timothy O Benson( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raoul Hausmann (1886-1971), photomonteur and photographer, painter and sound poet, writer and inventor, created a body of work that is generally associated with the Berlin Dadaist movement, in which Hausmann played a prominent role. But we also find him, during a later period, at the heart of a movement that continued from the 1920s to the neo-avant-gardes of the 1960s. Each time, this extraordinarily impatient and critical character was engaged in a revolutionary reevaluation of modern culture. This work sheds light on the dynamic trajectory of Hausmann's work within the various avant-gard movements of the 20th century. His historiographical approach, his collaborations, his transgenerational alliances, and his transformation of what is human into a techomorphic creation--all make Hausmann not only a witness to these movements, but a major player in them. This study presents a new look at the artist's relationship to science and technology, and includes a selection of his unedited literary texts

Hans Richter : activism, modernism, and the avant-garde by Stephen C Foster( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few artists spanned the movements of early twentieth-century art as completely as did Hans Richter. Richter was a major force in the developments of expressionism, Dada, De Stijl, constructivism, and Surrealism, and the creator, with Viking Eggeling, of the abstract cinema. Along with Theo van Doesburg, László Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitzky, and a few others, he is one of the artists crucial to an understanding of the role of the arts in the reconstruction era following World War I.Most American scholars have focused on Richter's film work and have favored a strictly formalist approach that separa
