Behind closed doors : the art of Hans Bellmer by Therese Lichtenstein( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life-size, adolescent-girl dolls created by the German artist Hans Bellmer in the 1930s are the subject of Therese Lichtenstein's highly original work. Disturbing and controversial, Bellmer's dolls - with their uncanny, fragmented bodies and eroticized poses - were just as shocking during Bellmer's time as they are today. Until now there has been little available in English about Bellmer's dolls, and Lichtenstein's book will be welcomed for its fresh interpretations of the artist's work and his place in European modernism. Eighty striking photographs accompany the text."--Jacket

Image building : how photography transforms architecture by Therese Lichtenstein( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography has both manipulated and bolstered our appreciation of modern architecture. With beautiful photographs of private and public buildings by Julius Shulman, Candida Hofer, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, and others, this book examines the central and active role that photography plays in defining and perpetuating the iconic nature of buildings and places. This volume shows how different photographers represent the same building, offers commentaries on the American dream, and explores changes in commercial architectural photography. Placing decades-old images alongside modern ones, Image Building depicts the idea of the comfortable middle-class home and the construction of suburbia as an ironic ideal. It presents the ways that public spaces such as libraries, museums, theaters, and office buildings are experienced differently as photographers highlight the social, cultural, psychological, and aesthetic conditions to reveal the layered meanings of place and identity. Looking at how photography shapes and frames our understanding of architecture, this volume offers thought-provoking points of view through an exploration of social and cultural issues."--

Twilight visions : surrealism and Paris by Therese Lichtenstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through an examination of surrealist photographs, objects, exhibitions, activities, and writings, the essays in "Twilight Visions", the beautifully illustrated companion volume to the exhibition of the same name, portray the French capital as a city in the process of metamorphosis-in a kind of twilight state. The Bureau of Surrealist Research, the major Surrealist exhibitions, and the photographs of Paris by Brassai, Andre Kertesz, Ilse Bing, Germaine Krull, and Man Ray, among others, all reflect the tumultuous social and cultural transformations occurring in Paris in the 1920s and 30s. Juxtaposing the strange with the familiar, they seek to break down repressive hierarchies. At the same time, they represent a desire to change the world through experimental activities. Introduced by Therese Lichtenstein, with essays by Therese Lichtenstein, Julia Kelly, Colin Jones, and Whitney Chadwick, this absorbing volume considers the social, aesthetic, and political stances of the Surrealists as they probed hidden aspects of the commonplace and blurred the boundaries between dreams and reality, subjectivity and objectivity. This title is co published by Frist Center for the Visual Arts
The psychological and political implications of Hans Bellmer's dolls in the cultural and social context of Germany and France in the 1930s by Therese Lichtenstein( )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Nazi Germany the acts of colonizing, possessing and systematically destroying the "Other"--Jews, modern artists, the insane and the left-wing intelligentsia--began by the strategic construction of the category of degenerate "Otherness." By creating a comparative discourse between the acceptable, normal Nazi culture and the unacceptable, degenerate Other, the National Socialists could better substantiate, legitimize and communicate their pseudo-scientific eugenics based race theory. The human body frequently displayed in mass-spectacles--parades, films and art exhibitions--became the site on which the acceptable and unacceptable discourses were articulated
