Paul Scheerbart (18631915) was a visionary German novelist, theorist, poet, and artist who made a lasting impression on such icons of modernism as Walter Benjamin, Bruno Taut, and Walter Gropius. Fascinated with the potential of glass architecture, Scheerbart's satirical fantasies envisioned an electrified future, a world composed entirely of crystalline, colored glass. In 1912, Scheerbart published The Light Club of Batavia, a Novelle about the formation of a club dedicated to building a spa for bathingnot in water, but in lightat the bottom of an abandoned mineshaft.

Georges Vantongerloo : a longing for infinity : 3 November 2009-22 February 2010 by Georges Vantongerloo ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The catalogue is published on the occasion of the first individual exhibition of Georges Vantongerloo in Spain. The catalogue reveals the grounding of his work in the re-conceptualisation of pictorial and sculptural space that marked the abstract tendencies in art of the early 20th century. In the 1920s an important part of the Vantongerloo's investigation was centred on colour as physical and perceptive phenomenon. Later, Vantongerloo will conceive his works according to strictly geometric rules, algebraic afterwards, to turn, thus, into the founder of the mathematical thought in art in our epoch. Genuine pioneer in the abstract sculpture field, the artist will continue, after 1945, proposing peculiar versions of that kind of sculpture, abandoning all the reference to a built geometry, and opening to a subjective approach to the universe of cosmology." --Book Jacket
