Bird's Nest : Herzog & de Meuron in China by Christoph Schaub( Visual )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China is changing fast. More building work went on in China in the last year than in the whole of Europe over the last few years. Internationally reputed architects are in demand. The Basle-based star architects Herzog & de Meuron (Tate Modern in London, Allianz Arena football stadium in Munich, De Young Museum in San Francisco, among other projects) have been commissioned to build the National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics. The two architects have another project in progress in the Chinese province, where they are building an entire district for 300,000 people in Jinhua, a city with 3 million inhabitants. This project caters for the daily needs of the Chinese population. The documentary by Christoph Schaub and Michael Schindhelm shows how the Chinese culture affects the construction work of the architects: The specific architectonic form and the struggle to achieve it give us information about the society, the culture and everyday life in China. Bird's nest - Herzog & de Meuron in China explores how these prestige buildings are being built in China. On the one hand, the documentary attempts to understand the two architects' very own method of contextual building applied successfully again and again. On the other hand, it explores the Chinese side: their intentions, their expectations, and their strategies in this complex creation process
Lavapolis by Michael Schindhelm( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lavapolis ist eine mögliche Insel im Mittelmeer, ein Gegenort. Ihre Bewohner, die Michael Schindhelm in diesem faszinierenden, vielstimmigen, literarischen Gedankenspiel zum Sprechen bringt, sind Gestrandete, Hoffnungsjäger, Enttäuschte und Visionäre. Alle treibt ein latentes oder offensichtliches Unbehagen an der Gegenwart um. Hier berichten sie von ihrem neuen Leben auf der Insel, sich widersprechend, einander zustimmend. In einer anderen Welt wären sie vielleicht Feinde, auf Lavapolis aber sind sie Teil eines Projekts, in dessen Zentrum die Möglichkeit steht, unterschiedlichste Lebensentwürfe zu verwirklichen, die sich dank dieses politischen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Experiments unaufhörlich erneuern. Michael Schindhelm entwirft mit Lavapolis eine mögliche Zukunft, einen Ausweg aus der scheinbaren Einbahnstraße nach dem Ende aller Utopien und der Diktatur des Wirklichen, und stellt die Frage: Was ist möglich? "Lavapolis" ist Ausgangspunkt eines großen Projekts, das seine Fortsetzung im realen Leben mit Stationen u.a. im Europäischen Parlament in Straßburg und auf der Biennale in Venedig findet und auf der Website www.lavapolis.com zu verfolgen ist
Letzter Vorhang Roman by Michael Schindhelm( )

7 editions published in 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Schindhelm erzählt die Geschichte des Matthias Pollack, Chefdramaturg am Berliner Liebknecht-Theater, das nach 25 Jahren als das Nonplusultra des deutschen Theaters nun zur Beute eines kosmopolitischen Kulturmanagers werden soll. Was wie eine Allegorie auf die Gegenwart der Berliner Volksbühne am Rosa- Luxemburg-Platz erscheint, wird mehr und mehr zur beklemmenden Einsicht in die Selbstentfremdung des Protagonisten. Pollack, Ende fünfzig, Sohn Ostberliner Intellektueller, gerade von seiner jungen Freundin verlassen, ist auf dem Weg zur 463. Vorstellung von "Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest": Entstanden im Herbst 1989 als Abrechnung mit der Staatswillkür der DDR, dann transformiert in eine Attacke auf die Zumutungen des Kapitalismus, soll diese Inszenierung, die den Ruhm des Liebknecht begründet hat, heute in Anwesenheit des Regierenden Bürgermeisters zum letzten Mal gespielt werden. Niemand kann vorhersehen, was an diesem Abend geschehen wird

Walter Spies ein exotisches Leben by Michael Schindhelm( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Er ließ alles hinter sich: Den gesellschaftlichen Status als Sohn eines Industriemagnaten, seinen Geliebten, den Filmregisseur Friedrich Murnau, Künstlerfreunde wie Oskar Kokoschka und Otto Dix. Als Walter Spies (1895-1942) in die exotische Welt von Bali eintauchte, setzte er sich intensiv mit der dortigen Kultur auseinander. Mit seinen magisch-realistischen Bildern revolutionierte er die balinesische Kunst und wird dort bis heute als genialer Meister verehrt. Vor der Kulisse einer atemberaubenden Landschaft erzählen seine Gemälde, Zeichnungen und Aquarelle vom alltäglichen Leben, von Tempelzeremonien, Hahnenkämpfen, Marktszenen oder der Arbeit auf den Feldern. In dem Autor Michael Schindhelm hat Walter Spies einen Biografen gefunden, der sein unkonventionelles Leben sensibel und kunstverständig nachzeichnet
Dubai high : a culture trip by Michael Schindhelm( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In early 2007, writer and theatre director Michael Schindhelm was appointed by the Dubai authorities as consultant on a projected opera house, and in early 2008 found himself with a broader remit as director of the newly founded Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. His diary of 2008 is a partly fictionalized account of his first twelve months of both working and living in Dubai. It is a meditation, from a cultural perspective, on the nature of this extraordinary city and its project to reinvent itself according to new rules of its own devising. From the outset there were profound cultural issues to be faced. Can essentially alien art forms be transplanted effectively? Can they be imposed top-down by the authorities? Can high culture ever be financially self-supporting? In a society run like a business by a tiny, unaccountable elite, in which freedom of speech is limited and 90 percent of the inhabitants are transient, expendable expatriates, can the arts realistically be nurtured as a form of social expression and self-examination? The author's efforts to create projects were undermined by misunderstandings over the nature and purpose of the arts - in his employers' conception, little more than a marketing tool to boost Dubai's brand as a premier global tourist resort. His woes were compounded by the lack of clear distinction between government and private enterprise, and by the very Arabian custom of bringing in privileged outsiders to advise on, and occasionally to compete with, schemes supposedly under his direction. Ultimately, his projects were undone by the global financial crash of late 2008. Despite such travails, the author is able to see the funny side and retains some sympathy for the Dubai project. He remains optimistic, seeing in Dubai and other Gulf States a glimmer of hope for international cultural dialogue, leading to increased understanding between the Arab world and the West

Bird's nest : Herzog & de Meuron in China( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in German and English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce film retrace le projet pharaonique du stade olympique de Pékin, conçu par les architectes bâlois Jacques Herzog et Pierre de Meuron, de sa conception à sa réalisation. Parallèlement, le duo conçoit un quartier entier à Jinhua, ville de province au sud-ouest de Shanghai. Dans un cas, ils participent à la représentation de la Chine sur la scène internationale. Dans l'autre, il s'agit de répondre aux besoins quotidiens de la population locale. Leur défi: construire entre deux cultures et deux systèmes politiques. Bird's Nest ne chroniquerait que la construction du fameux stade des futurs jeux qu'il serait déjà un document formidable. Mais ce film va plus loin, posant un vrai regard sur la Chine d'aujourd'hui."
