Diller Scofidio + Renfro : architecture after images by Edward Dimendberg( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture after Images", Edward Dimendberg offers the first comprehensive treatment of one of the most imaginative contemporary design studios. Since founding their practice in 1979, Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio have integrated architecture, urban design, media art, and the performing arts in a dazzling array of projects, which include performances, art installations, and books, in addition to buildings and public spaces. At the center of this work is a fascination with vision and a commitment to questioning the certainty and security long associated with architecture. Dimendberg provides an extensive overview of these concerns and the history of the studio, revealing how principals Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, and Charles Renfro continue to expand the definition of architecture, question the nature of space and vision in contemporary culture, and produce work that is endlessly surprising and rewarding, from New York's High Line to Blur, an artificial cloud, and Facsimile, a video screen that moves around a building facade. Dimendberg also explores the relation of work by DS+R to that of earlier modernists such as Marcel Duchamp and John Hejduk. He reveals how the architects' fascination with evolving forms of media, technology, and building materials has produced works that unsettle distinctions among architecture and other media. Based on interviews with the architects, their clients, and collaborators as well as unprecedented access to unpublished documents, sketchbook entries, and archival records, "Diller Scofidio + Renfro" is the most thorough consideration of DS+R in any language. Illustrated with many previously unpublished renderings in addition to photos from contemporary photographers, this book is an essential study of one of the most significant and creative architecture and design studios working today
Arthur Erickson : critical works by R. Nicholas Olsberg( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At long last, here is a book of critical thought that analyzes celebrated architect Arthur Erickson's best work and situates it as a distinctive body of ideas within the mainstream of international architecture in the last half of the twentieth century." "In this book, Nicholas Olsberg draws on Erickson's own discussion of ideas to present a thoughtful and illuminating reassessment of his most important work. Ricardo L. Castro's photography captures essential passages of the works as they have matured into their settings. More than 170 images, including archival photographs, study models, drawings and plans, show how the designs were evolved and their intent conveyed."--Jacket

Raymond Pettibon by Raymond Pettibon( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based in California, US-artist Raymond Pettibon is one of the most thorough chroniclers of American milieus of popular culture. A Goya of our times, whose "Desastres" depict less the wars actually waged than the confrontations taking place inside people's heads, the battles between youth cultures, and the cops-'n'-robbers games transfixed into durable and quotable shape in the repertoire of images provided by film noir." "While a detailed catalogue presents all 500 works shown in the exhibition "Whatever it is you're looking for you won't find it here," an extensive interview with Raymond Pettibon conveys an idea of his intellectual microcosm and the productive energy unfolding in his work."--BOOK JACKET

Facing the music : documenting Walt Disney Concert Hall and the redevelopment of downtown Los Angeles : a project by Allan Sekula by Allan Sekula( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allan Sekula (1951-2013), photographer, artist, filmmaker, scholar, teacher and activist, devoted much of his life to the theory and practice of social documentary. This posthumous volume presents a collaborative exploration he initiated to examine downtown Los Angeles as its redevelopment peaked with the construction of Frank Gehry's cultural icon. Designed as an exploration of the impact of Gehry's building, the book challenges civic complacency by engaging a vital counter-tradition of social documentary investigation. Including a previously unpublished essay by Sekula on the challenges of representing the city, an interview with him about the 2005 exhibition Facing the Music which he curated for the gallery at REDCAT, and an overview of the building's history and the continuing urban transformations it has catalyzed, this publication is a unique record of social and artistic engagement in a metropolis often thought to inhibit such efforts

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

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 39 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 )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 9 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. ‘Hans Richter: Encounters from Dada to Today’ is the title of one of his books, which appeared in the 1970s. In post-war West Germany it was preceded by a rediscovery of this significant artist, who was hounded by the Nazis and whose work was shown as part of the infamous ‘Degenerate Art’ exhibition of 1937. Now, for the first time since the 1980s, an exhibition is being dedicated to this great Berlin artist in his native city. 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. ‘The absolute film opens your eyes to what the camera is, what it can do, and what it wants.’0Exhibition: Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany (27.3.-30.6.2014)

Cinema and experience : Siegfried Kracauer, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor W. Adorno by Miriam Hansen( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried Kracauer, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor W. Adorno-affiliated through friendship, professional ties, and argument-developed an astute philosophical critique of modernity in which technological media played a key role. This book explores in depth their reflections on cinema and photography from the Weimar period up to the 1960s. Miriam Bratu Hansen brings to life an impressive archive of known and, in the case of Kracauer, less known materials and reveals surprising perspectives on canonic texts, including Benjamin's artwork essay. Her lucid analysis extrapolates from these writings the contours of a theory of cinema and experience that speaks to questions being posed anew as moving image culture evolves in response to digital technology

1 edition published in 2014 in Italian and held by 3 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."
