Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte, 1910-1932 by Angela Völker( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The textile department of the Wiener Werkstatte was formally established c.1910, seven years after the inauguration of this many-faceted association of artists and craftsmen. The demand for mostly printed fabrics for use by the fashion department, in interior decoration schemes for well-to-do clients and for sale to the public was met by original designs from around 100 artists, including the association's co-founder Josef Hoffmann and other leading figures such as Dagobert Peche, Carl Otto Czeschka, Maria Likarz and Max Snischek. This proliferation of creativity gave rise to one of the most remarkable legacies of modern textile design

Chris Burden : beyond the limits = jenseits der Grenzen by Chris Burden( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in German and English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burden has a love-hate relationship with the machine: Suspended from the ceiling of the gallery or presented in glorious isolation, the toy-like machine becomes an object of fear and worship, however ironically, a mysterious idol to be propitiated and venerated, even if it no longer works. Thus art makes the machine benign by turning into a strange toy. It masters the machine in a playful, Machiavellian act of homage to it. Burden implicitly sets the cunning of the artist against the engineer who masterminded the machine, implying that the artist can magically undo the human damage the latter unwittingly did with his machine

Peter Eisenman : Barfuss auf weiss glühenden Mauern = Barefoot on white-hot walls by Peter Eisenman( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Peter Eisenman. Barefoot on White-Hot Walls"--Published on the occasion of the eponymous personal exhibition at the MAK Vienna - gives profound insight into the work of Peter Eisenman, without doubt one of the most interesting architects of our time." "The main focus is on Eisenman's most recent projects such as the "City of Culture of Galicia" in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" in Berlin, Germany. Likewise, the publication extensively documents, in text and illustrations, spectacular competition entries such as his Naples TAV Railway Station or the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris. Drawings, renderings, and photographs of built projects introduce readers to complex design processes which always also relate to fundamental questions of architecture." "One special feature of the book is the documentation of Eisenman's exhibition installation developed especially for the MAK show and epitomizing his effort to overcome conventional spatial concepts as well as his renunciation of common notions of purpose, orientation, and proportion."--Jacket
Coop Himmelb(l)au : beyond the blue by Coop Himmelblau( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coop Himmelb(l)au's psychogram technique began as a technique to free architecture from cliches, a renunciation of design methods seen by Prix and Swiczinsky to serve discredited institutions and authorities. By forcing themselves out of their own comfort levels with building, they learned how to amplify the dynamic tensions of a space, "--Page 47

Wege der Moderne : Josef Hoffmann, Adolf Loos und die Folgen = Ways to modernism : Josef Hoffmann, Adolf Loos and their impact by Josef Hoffmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The catalogue for the exhibition at the MAK (Austrian Museum for Applied Art/Contemporary Art in Vienna) focuses on two fundamental approaches of the Moderne movement in an antithetic comparison, including the preceding history and after-effects to this day: Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) and Adolf Loos (1870-1933) represent opposing reactions to the basic problems of modern civilization, which were triggered by the process of industrialization and democratization. Two different concepts for a modern way of life were created: Hoffmann promoted a comprehensive aestheticization of all spheres of life, while Loos interpreted architecture and design as the functional background for the development of individual personalities. 0In 16 essays, well-known European and American experts investigate a wide range of contributing conditions and the highlights and consequences of these two traditions of the Moderne movement, from the 19th century to the present. The key works of Hoffmann and Loos - as well as those of their predecessors such as Otto Wagner, and successors such as Josef Frank - are richly illustrated. 0Exhibition: MAK Vienna, Austria, (17.12.2014-19.04.2015)
