Bauhaus : a conceptual model ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of Walter Gropius' guiding principles in founding the Bauhaus was that "design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society." As a result of this ethos, Bauhaus artists and designers experimented freely with everything from painting to furniture, producing countless masterpieces in many genres. This comprehensive volume takes stock of the Bauhaus' output by highlighting 68 projects, with a particular focus on neglected aspects of the school's legacy. A different author is assigned to respond to each work, creating an inventory of celebrated and lesser-known works that helps the reader to tangibly cohere the Bauhaus' daunting achievements. Marking the ninetieth anniversary of the school's founding, this comprehensive volume, with nearly 400 color illustrations, is made possible through the collaborative efforts of three institutions: the Bauhaus-Archiv Museum of Design in Berlin, Dessau's Stiftung Bauhaus and the Bauhaus-Museum Weimar (Klassik Stiftung). Also featured are essays by the Director of the Bauhaus-Museum in Weimar, Michael Siebenbrodt, and the artist and writer, Jeff Wall."--BOOK JACKET

Many of these diagrams, scores, technical designs, and evidently spontaneous drawings are enriched with collaged objects, printed words, and lines of poetry

Meret Oppenheim : retrospective by Meret Oppenheim( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Meret Oppenheim (1913-1985) war eine der vielseitigsten Künstlerinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts und schuf ein bedeutendes malerisches und skulpturales Oeuvre. Bekannt wurde sie als Schöpferin der weltberühmten, mit Pelz bezogenen Tasse 'Déjeuner en fourrure' (1936), einer Ikone des Surrealismus, aber auch als Gestalterin des Berner Oppenheim-Brunnens und als wunderschönes Modell vor der Kameralinse von Man Ray. Was bislang fehlte, war ein kompakter Einblick in ihr Leben und Werk. Mit 'Meret Oppenheim - Eine Einführung' liegt jetzt eine knappe, handliche Übersicht vor. Das Buch fasst die wichtigsten Linien und Schnittstellen zusammen und behandelt in einem abwechslungsreichen Bogen ausgewählte Themen. Erkenntnisse aus bisher unbekannten Archiven und neue fotografische Dokumente machen das Buch zu einer aufregenden Reise durch ein Leben, in dem Realität und Phantasie zu einer Einheit verschmolzen sind
Bauhaus conflicts, 1919-2009 : controversies and counterparts ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Only an idea has the power to spread so far." Ludwig Mies van der Rohe The Bauhaus, one of the icons of modernism, was controversial from the start--not only because of internal strife, but also due to critique or enmities from the outside. And the controversy did not end with the closure of the Bauhaus itself. Yet nothing else revealed Bauhaus ideas and ideology as well as these confrontations did. Through them, the basic issues of the modernist program became clear. It became obvious that there was no such thing as one kind of modernism, just as there was no ONE Bauhaus; instead, there were different, contradictory, and even oppositional movements and positions: the Bauhauses. Few cultural movements have been as politically instrumentalized as the Bauhaus has. These controversies reflect the relationship between politics and culture in the twentieth century, and hence, the history of the construction of German identity

Ai Weiwei bespielt mit seinen Werken das gesamte, ca. 3000 Quadratmeter umfassende Erdgeschoss des Ausstellungsgebäudes. Für jeden der 20 Räume sowie den Lichthof entwickelt er eine eigene Komposition, mehr als die Hälfte der Werke entsteht direkt für die Berliner Schau. In kurzen Einführungen zum Tafelteil vermittelt der Künstler seine persönliche Sicht auf die Kunstwerke. Für den vorliegenden Band werden diese Werke eigens aufgenommen und präsentieren zusammen mit den fundierten Texten der wichtigsten Kenner des Œuvres von Ai Weiwei einen umfassenden Überblick über das ebenso faszinierende wie berührende Schaffen des „chinesischsten aller Künstler, die wir aus China kennen“, wie ihn Gereon Sievernich, Direktor des Martin-Gropius-Baus, charakterisiert.0Exhibition: Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany (3.4.-7.7.2014)
