The Routledge Companion to Criticality in Art, Architecture, and Design' presents an in-depth exploration of criticism and criticality in theory and practice across the disciplines of art, architecture, and design. Professional criticism is a vital part of understanding the cultural significance of designed objects and environments that we engage with on a daily basis, yet there is evidence to show that this practice is changing. This edited volume investigates how practitioners, researchers, educators, and professionals engage with, think about, and value the practice of critique. With contributions from a multi-disciplinary authorship from nine countries - the UK, USA, Australia, India, Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa, Belgium, and Denmark - this companion provides a wide range of leading perspectives evaluating the landscape of criticality and how it is being shaped by technological and social advances. Illustrated with over 60 black and white images and structured into five sections, 'The Routledge Companion to Criticality in Art, Architecture, and Design' is a comprehensive volume for researchers, educators, and students exploring the changing role of criticism through interdisciplinary perspectives

Lost in Translation: A Critique of Copyright and the Aesthetics of Re-production in China( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Widely derided for its materialistic culture of ‘‘cheap knock-offs,’’ the growing Chinese middle class has struggled to wean itself from the re-production and status-based consumption of counterfeit goods and Western aesthetics. From the Chinese re-production of canonical icons of Western modernity, to the more recent copying of the aesthetics of contemporary architecture abroad, the legality of copying has centered on the visual like-ness of a copy to its original. However, this preoccupation with visual aesthetics has suppressed more productive questions about the critical cultural functioning of copying in better understanding what a copy says about its copier and Chinese national identity
