Re: Futures : Studio Hani Rashid, University of Applied Arts Vienna by Hani Rashid( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hani Rashid, co-founder of Asymptote, the visionary New York architectural practice, has been heading up Studio Hani Rashid in Vienna since 2011. The curriculum focuses on the development of conceptual and practical skills for creating future-oriented architecture - on experimental investigation of atmospheric, phenomenal, and visual effects, which provides intelligent solutions for contemporary forms of dwelling and being but which should also satisfy 'feasibility criteria'. 'Re: Futures' uses texts, digital visualizations and descriptive architectural sketches to document the work created over recent years, and thereby reveals a spectrum of contemporary design methods and future-oriented architectural themes"--Provided by publisher
The oldest living things in the world by Rachel Sussman( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oldest Living Things in the World is an epic journey through time and space. Over the past decade, artist Rachel Sussman has researched, worked with biologists, and traveled the world to photograph continuously living organisms that are 2,000 years old and older. Spanning from Antarctica to Greenland, the Mojave Desert to the Australian Outback, the result is a stunning and unique visual collection of ancient organisms unlike anything that has been created in the arts or sciences before, insightfully and accessibly narrated by Sussman along the way ... Alongside the photographs, Sussman relays fascinating -- and sometimes harrowing -- tales of her global adventures tracking down her subjects and shares insights from the scientists who research them. The oldest living things in the world are a record and celebration of the past, a call to action in the present, and a barometer of our future."--Publisher's description
Destruction of the father reconstruction of the father : writings and interviews, 1923-1997 by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

34 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and German and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the age of twelve, the internationally renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois has been writing - writing and drawing. First a diary precisely recounting the everyday events of her family life, then notes and reflections. Destruction of the Father - the title comes from the name of a sculpture she made following the death of her husband in 1973 - contains both formal texts and what the artist calls "pen-thoughts": drawing-texts often connected to her drawings and sculptures, with stories or poems inscribed alongside the images. This book collects both her writings and her spoken remarks on art, confirming the deep links between her work and her biography and offering new insights into her creative thinking and process

Ai Weiwei by Ai Weiwei( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ai Weiwei's work is an audacious blend of old and new, Western and Eastern, serious and irreverent. He has translated the readymade into a new artistic language, fusing neolithic pottery, fourteenth-century doors and seventeenth-century temple beams into surprising, at times shocking sculptures. He has documented his disdain for authority by giving the finger to the Tiananmen in Beijing, the Reichstag in Berlin and the White House in Washington (Study of Perspective, 1993-2005). And he has captured the mundane urban sprawl of his home city in a 150-hour video (Beijing 2003, 2003) that even dwarfs Andy Warhol's notorious eight-hour Empire. Ai Weiwei grew up on the edge of the Gobi desert in China's Western provinces. In the late 1970s he moved to Beijing, banding together with other pro-democracy artists in a loose collective know as the Stars group. In 1981, following government retaliation against their exhibitions, he moved to New York, where he attended art school and lived for twelve years, eventually returning to China when his father fell ill in 1993. Settling in Beijing, Ai became a rallying figure in a burgeoning new art scene. Taking up his art in earnest, he also emerged as a surprising and celebrated architect. (In addition to his numerous commissions for buildings in Beijing and beyond, he provided Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron with the inspiration for their celebrated Beijing National Stadium, home to the 2008 Olympics.) What marks Ai as a truly twenty-first-century artist is precisely this multiplicity of roles: not just artist, designer and architect, but also curator, publisher, Web blogger and compass for an entire generation of Beijing artists. His outsize public persona is an integral part of his art. Although his outspoken views have brought him unwanted attention from the State, they have also generated excitement far beyond China's borders. His work has been increasingly featured in the world's most significant exhibitions, including Ducumenta 12 (2007), the 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial (2007) and the 15 Biennale of Sydney (2006), in the process providing the world with a inside view into one of the most exciting new art scenes. Karen Smith's Survey traces the artist's remarkable career from his early days in Beijing to his discovery of the Western avant-garde in New York and his recent emergence as a celebrated sculptor and architect. In the Interview Hans Ulrich Obrist discusses with the artist his father's artistic training and subsequent exile and the effects they had on his own views on art and authority. Bernard Fibicher's Focus looks at the monumental light sculpture Descending Light (2007). Artist's Choice features a poem by Ai Qing, one of China's most important twentieth-century writers. Artist's Writings include entries from Ai's blog, seen by millions of visitors each year and celebrated for its thoughtful and candid remarks on the subjects of art, politics and culture

Mapping it out : an alternative atlas of contemporary cartographies by Hans Ulrich Obrist( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maps have always been at the heart of human knowledge. Whether they chart a newly discovered land or lay out a complicated process, maps serve to improve our understanding of what surrounds us. Maps make the complex simple, and reveal the complexity behind the apparently simple. Mapping It Out invites artists, architects, writers, and designers, geographers, mathematicians, computer pioneers, scientists, and others from a host of fields to create a personal map of their own, in whatever form and showing whatever terrain they choose, whether real-world or imaginary. Over 130 contributors are represented, including Yoko Ono, Louise Bourgeois, Damien Hirst, David Adjaye, Ed Ruscha, Alexander Kluge, and many more. Some contributors have translated scientific data into simplified visual language, while others have condensed vast social, political, or natural forms into concise diagrams. There are reworked existing maps, alternate views of reality, charted imaginary flights of fancy, and the occasional rejection of a traditional map altogether.--Provided by publisher

Project Japan : metabolism talks-- by Rem Koolhaas( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once there was a nation that went to war, but after they conquered a continent their own country was destroyed by atom bombs ... then the victors imposed democracy on the vanquished. For a group of apprentice architects, artists, and designers, led by a visionary, the dire situation of their country was not an obstacle but an inspiration to plan and think ... although they were very different characters, the architects worked closely together to realize their dreams, staunchly supported by a super-creative bureaucracy and an activist state ... after 15 years of incubation, they surprised the world with a new architecture--Metabolism--that proposed a radical makeover of the entire land ... Then newspapers, magazines, and TV turned the architects into heroes: thinkers and doers, thoroughly modern men ..."--Page [4] de la couv
Anri Sala by Anri Sala( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anri Sala's work is often about obscurity - obscurity of images but also of language and experience - which can render it both vexingly subtle and uncomfortably immediate. Working in a range of media - including video, photography and installation - and having been raised in Tirana, educated in Paris and now settled in Berlin, Anri Sala represents a truly contemporary international vision. They impact of his work - featured at the world's top venues and exhibitions - endorses Sala's conviction that art can transcend cultural references without losing any of its specificity nor, indeed, its power."--Jacket

Do it : the compendium by Bruce Altshuler( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, 'Do It' began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier and Obrist himself, who was experimenting with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. The discussion led to the question of whether a show could take "scores" or written instructions by artists as a point of departure, which could be interpreted anew each time they were enacted. To test the idea, Obrist invited 13 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into nine different languages and circulated internationally as a book. Within two years, 'Do It' exhibitions were being created all over the world by realizing the artists' instructions. With every version of the exhibition new instructions were added, so that today more than 300 artists have contributed to the project
Kuratieren! by Hans Ulrich Obrist( )

7 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kuratieren" ist zu einer coolen Parole geworden - der Begriff expandiert vom Metier der Museumsleute in alle Lebensbereiche und erfasst ein Lebensgefühl, in dem nahezu alles zur Kunstform wird. Mit unwiderstehlichem Elan schildert Hans Ulrich Obrist, Guru der Kunstszene und einer der einflussreichsten Kuratoren der Welt, worum es bei seiner Arbeit geht. Hans Ulrich Obrist scheint überall zu sein - er ist auf allen Kontinenten aktiv, arbeitet stets an mehreren Ausstellungen gleichzeitig und kennt vermutlich mehr Künstler als jeder andere lebende Zeitgenosse. Doch worum geht es überhaupt, wenn eine Ausstellung gemacht wird? Welche Bedeutung hat dieser gewaltige Energiestrom der Kunstszene für das Verständnis unserer Gegenwart? Und was ist die Philosophie hinter dem "Kuratieren"? Obrist, der mit 24 Jahren seine erste Ausstellung in seiner Küche kuratiert hat, erzählt von seinem Weg, von befreundeten Künstlern wie Gerhard Richter, Peter Fischli und David Weiss oder Alighiero Boetti und vom obsessiven Leben mit der Kunst und für die Kunst
Gerhard Richter : writings 1961-2007 by Gerhard Richter( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerhard Richter, born in Dresden in 1932, is one of the foremost painters of his generation. A great deal has been written about the remarkable heterogeneity of his work, his seemingly willful and defiant movement between abstract and figurative modes of representation, and his use of a variety of methods of applying paint to canvas. Central to his work is a strong set of values which throughout his career he has expressed in extensive notes and writings, and in provocative and memorable public declarations in which he shows himself to be the master of the paradoxical statement." "This volume makes available a comprehensive selection of Richter texts, several published for the first time. These texts come from all periods of his career: letters and interviews; public statements about specific exhibitions; private reflections drawn from personal correspondence; answers to questions posed by critics; and excerpts from journals discussing the intentions, subjects, methods and sources of his work from various periods. Complete with a comprehensive appendix, and accompanied by over a hundred photographs of artworks, works in progress, exhibition installations, and colleagues and family, this book forms a brilliantly illuminating commentary on Richter's art, as well as providing a thought-provoking discussion on the status of art and the artist in society today."
Formulas for now by Hans Ulrich Obrist( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 100 contributors â from the fields of art, science, mathematics, performance, music, architecture, design, literature and sociology â have devised or chosen their own personal formula to express their understanding of contemporary life. At times quirky and idiosyncratic, witty and playful, some of the formulas register an indisputable fact or propose a speculative idea; others provide a method of bringing order to a complex universe â or point to the impossibility of doing so; still others suggest propositions or solutions for a better future. Whether taking the form of a scribbled equation or typeset text, or a drawing, diagram, photograph or painting, each contribution is treated imaginatively in a fun and colourful design in keeping with the spirit of the project
