Roman Signer by Gerhard Mack( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 275 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
Hans Josephsohn by Gerhard Mack( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 178 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 )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 113 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
Quantum field theory : a selection of papers in memorian Kurt Symanzik by Arthur Jaffe( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and Italian and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurt Symanzik was certainly one of the most outstanding theoretical physicists of our time. For thirty years, until his untimely death in 1983, he helped to shape the present form of quantum field theory and its application to elementary particle physics. In memoriam of Kurt" Symanzik leading scientists present their most recent results, giving, at the same time, an overview of the state of the art. This collection was originally published in Vol. 97, 1/2 (1985) of Communications in Mathematical Physics. They range over various inter related topics of interest to Kurt Symanzik. We hope that making this collection available in an accessible and inexpensive way will benefit the physics community. The Publisher Contents To the Memory of Kurt Symanzik 1 By A. Jaffe, H.

Nachhaltig Denken in Architektur und Kunst = Sustainable thinking in architecture and art : Bob Gysin + Partner, BGP by Suisse) Galerie Bob Gysin (Zurich( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Prinzip der Nachhaltigkeit hat sich zu einem Leitbild des 21. Jahrhunderts entwickelt. Für das Architekturbüro Bob Gysin + Partner BGP ist dies nicht nur eine ökologische Prämisse, es ist zugleich Anreiz und Motor ihres architektonischen Schaffens. Seit 40 Jahren setzen sie mit dieser Verbindung Massstäbe und zählen in der europäischen Architekturszene zu den Spitzen- und Vorreitern. Das Buch zeigt ihre Denk- und Arbeitsweise und bietet erstmalig Einblicke in die Planung und Realisierung, der sich die Einzigartigkeit der Projekte verdankt - vom Wasserforschungsinstitut Chriesbach bis zum neuen Hauptsitz von Greenpeace. Und bietet zudem die Gelegenheit, die gleichzeitige Praxis von Architektur und Kunst zu thematisieren und deren Vernetzungen mit der Nachhaltigkeit zu durchleuchten. Dabei gelingt es immer wieder, Grenzen zu überschreiten sowie gesellschaftliches Engagement und kulturelle Relevanz miteinander zu verbinden. (Quelle: Werkbund SWB)
