Dan Graham is among the most influential of the Conceptual artists who emerged in America during the mid 1960s. A pioneer in performance and video art in the 1970s, Graham later turned his attention to architectural projects designed for social interaction in public spaces. Writing has always been a major aspect of Graham's work. His texts range from early Conceptual art pieces inserted in mass-market magazines, to writing on his fellow artists, to analyses of popular culture, from Dean Martin to the post-Punk era. Well-known also among architects and urban theorists, during the 1990s Graham has been offered major public commissions throughout North America and Europe.--From publisher description

Alison and Peter Smithson : from the house of the future to a house of today by Alison Margaret Smithson ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Striving to adapt the progressive ideas of the pre-war Modern Movement to the specific human needs of post-war reconstruction, Alison and Peter Smithson were among the most influential and controversial architects of the latter half of the twentieth century. As younger members of CIAM and as founding members of Team 10, they were at the heart of the debate on the future course of modern architecture, and by their polemics and designs laid the foundations for the New Brutalism and the 1960's Pop Art Movement. Alison and Peter Smithsons' reputation for controversy rather overshadowed the work at the heart of their architectural philosophy and practice: their designs for houses and their preoccupation with 'dwelling'. Although great admirers of Le Corbusier, they rejected his idea of the dwelling as a 'machine for living'. To the Smithsons, a house was a particular place, which should be suited to its location and able to meet the ordinary requirements of life and to accommodate its inhabitants' individual patterns of use. This book examines the evolution of their approach to the everyday 'art of inhabitation'. It does so by extensively documenting most of their designs for individual dwellings, especially their optimistic House of the Future of 1956 and the series of renovations of and additions to the fairy tale-like 'Hexenhaus' in Germany from the late 1980s onward. Included are essays by Beatriz Colomina, Dirk van den Heuvel and Max Risselada, plus a selections of texts by Alison and Peter Smithson"--Bookjacket

New Jersey as non-site by Kelly Baum ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between 1950 and 1975, some of the postwar era's most innovative artists flocked to a very unexpected place: New Jersey. Appreciating what others tended to ignore or mock, they gravitated to the state's most desolate peripheries: its industrial wastescapes, crumbling cities, crowded highways, and banal suburbs. There they produced some of the most important work of their careers. The breakthroughs in land, conceptual, performance, and site-specific art that New Jersey helped catalyze are the subject of New Jersey as Non-Site, whose title evokes the mixed-media sculptures that Robert Smithson began to create in 1968 while driving the state's highways with Nancy Holt. This catalogue examines more than 100 works by sixteen artists, including Amiri Baraka, George Brecht, Dan Graham, Allan Kaprow, Gordon Matta-Clark, and George Segal. Organized around three themes--ruin, cooperation, and displacement--Kelly Baum's essay considers their work in relationship to seismic shifts in the world of art and equally dramatic changes to New Jersey's economy, infrastructure, landscape, demography, and social stability."--

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the third book in the Critical Spatial Practice series, Beatriz Colomina traces the history of the modern architecture manifesto, with particular focus on Mies van der Rohe, and the play between the written and built work. This essay propels the manifesto form into the future, into an age where electronic media are the primary sites of debate, suggesting that new forms of manifesto are surely emerging along with new kinds of authorship, statement, exhibition, and debate
