Die Modernität des Dauerhaften Essays zu Stadt, Architektur und Design by Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orthodox concept of the Modern, as it was passed down from the 1920s to the post-war era, has been in a state of crisis for quite some time. This is particularly visible in the fields of urban planning, architecture, and design. Theorists and practitioners have either fiercely defended it as a crowning historical achievement to be upheld and further cultivated, or dismissively rejected it as a short-lived and outdated episode that needs to be replaced with something different and new. Architectural theorist and practitioner Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani suggests a third option: that we reformulate our understanding of the Modern, continuing to pursue its original social and humanist ambitions while radically re-examining its ideological, political, social, technical, functional, economic, ecological, and aesthetic assumptions. Our world, which continues to be shaken by dreadful wars, is also being sapped and polluted by our thoughtlessness and our greed. The capitalist compulsion to turn everything into a commodity has led to needless production and consumption, and we are both victims and accomplices of this predicament. The consumerist frenzy has brought completely new forms of exploitation and exacerbated the unjust inequalities between different parts of our world. Starting from these premises, the author puts forward a new design approach that strives for -- and is defined by -- durability. This is an approach that rejects the frivolous waste of resources and superficial proliferation of images that have become commonplace today. It offers an alternative to the contemporary fixation on spectacles, both hollow and dangerous, and instead calls for measured restraint and substantial simplicity

Maria Callas : the Scala years( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maria Callas sang on the stage of La Scala for thirteen years. She debuted in 1950 with Verdi's 'Aida'. Her farewell came in 1962 with Cherubini's 'Medea'. In that brief dazzling time the Greek singer forever changed her image and her rapport with the public. No longer a barely credible nightingale, the artist became an actress, a refined narrator, choralist and her own director: her stage movements, her sculpted poses, her infinite range of expressions and gestures were the cornerstones of legendary performances, above all 'La Traviata' directed by Luchino Visconti in 1955. Now, thirty years after her death, the Teatro alla Scala celebrates this most loved and talked about diva, a peerless artist who became the icon of modernity."--Page 4 of cover
Hundertwasser : the painter-king with the 5 skins : the power of art by Pierre Restany( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hundertwasser applied this philosophy not only to the famous Viennese buildings for which he was renowned, but all the media and art-forms he has experimented with during his wild and crazy career. Whether it be painting, sculpture, performance art or designing a kindergarten, Hundertwasser's works are multi-coloured, organic, and shot through with a sense of the magical or fantastic. However, there are principles operating behind these joyful bursts of gold and silver. Hundertwasser's art has always contained a political shade. He has consistently rebelled against rationalist or determinist ideas, promoted ecological awareness, and mantained a passionate belief in the anarchy of the imagination. In this retrospective, Pierre Restany covers all the bases of Hundertwasser's eclectic development as an artist, from the tenant revolt and nude lecture of the early Seventies, through the housing projects in Vienna, right up to his designs for an alternative society
