Roman Signer by Gerhard Mack ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Roman Signer identifies himself as a sculptor, he is best known for actions in which simple materials (rockets, balloons, rushing water) react with natural forces to yield surprisingly lyrical results. Part mad scientist, part sorcerer's apprentice, part Buster Keaton, Signer often appears in these actions, sometimes at considerable risk to himself. The real star of his works, however, is time. In works such as Sandbag with Timed Detonator (1988), an auto-destructive device featuring a plastic alarm clock that releases a heavy sandbag hanging above it, two periods of tranquil rest are bridged by an instant of sudden violence. In others the change is more gradual, as in Action with a Fuse (1989), a twenty kilometre, thirty-five day 'time sculpture' in which two hundred lengths of fuse burned a path to Signer's current hometown from the village of his youth" "In the Interview, Paula Van Den Bosch speaks to the artist about the origins of his interest in art and explosives. Gerhard Mack's Survey traces the key themes in a career that spans four decades, from the artist's early experiments with elemental materials to his large-scale explosive actions. In the Focus, Jeremy Millar visits the artist in Switzerland to retrace the path of the epic 1989 Action with a Fuse

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hans Josephsohn by Gerhard Mack ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hans Josephsohn, geboren 1920 in Königsberg, kam 1938 über Florenz nach Zürich. In über sechs Jahrzehnten hat er ein plastisches Werk geschaffen, das abseits aller Moden steht und trotzdem eine unvergleichliche Sensibilität für seine Zeit besitzt. Die stehenden und liegenden Plastiken, monumentalen Halbfiguren und Reliefs beeindrucken durch ihre Präsenz und Wucht. Hunderte von archaisch geformten, fragilen Gipsfiguren bevölkern sein Atelier, immer wieder arbeitet er an ihnen mit dem Material, mit Raum, Volumen, Licht. Sie sind Form gewordene Chiffren für innere Bilder, für seine Auseinandersetzung mit den Schicksalen und Zufällen der Existenz. Die umfassende Monografie stellt Josephsohns Position vor, macht ihre Genese greifbar, ordnet sie in den weiten Horizont der Kunstentwicklung ein und zeigt die faszinierende Eigenwilligkeit, die spannungsvolle Ruhe und ausbalancierte Sensibilität seines Werks, das wegen seiner unbeirrten Konsequenz zunehmend von jungen Künstlern entdeckt und geschätzt wird

Herzog & de Meuron : transforming Park Avenue Armory New York ( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How to deal with historic buildings has long been a core issue of the international architectural discourse. Herzog & de Meuron began addressing the potential of existing structures very early on: the maintenance and alteration of buildings are among the key strategies of the architects. For the Park Avenue Armory in New York, Herzog & de Meuron have designed a new model for dealing with monuments. The historical building was opened in 1881 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan as a meeting place and training ground for the National Guard, and boasts a rich mixture of different styles. Herzog & de Meuron developed a multifaceted strategy for the transformation of the building, now used as a cultural center, that allows for a combination of restoration, transformation, and innovation. From the exposing of historic structures to the addition of new elements, the architecture gained new vibrancy from the considered entanglement of different aspects. In the current debate, this departure from the practice of historic preservation in the United States is, beyond its value as an actual example, a unique contribution that unfolds in close reference to material. It is exemplary and groundbreaking
