The total artwork in expressionism : art, film, literature, theater, dance, and architecture, 1905-25 ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the past, the various categories of Expressionism have usually been treated separately. The [title] is the first comprehensive publication ever to examine the remarkable interplay of --and parallel developments in-- art, film, literautre, theater, dance, and architecture in the years 1905 to 1925. The Exhibition and the catalogue bring together the masterpieces of Expressionist film such as 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' and 'Genuine', architectural models, set designs, stage photographs, poster art, dance masks, paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures to present a unique panorama of the Expressionist period. Addressing a disastrous war, a revolution, urban modernity, and the reinvention of the world, this is the first book in which renowned authors, key works, and source texts from all disciplines come together to allow the reader to thoroughly experience the ways in which the various areas of activity mutually influenced each other, as well as the equally dramatic and fascinating fruits of Expressionism's networks." --Jacket
Andreas Gursky by Peter Galassi ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Andreas Gursky' s large color photographs vividly encapsulate our world of high-tech industry, global markets, easy travel, and slick commerce. Gursky has tracked the contemporary zeitgeist from his native Germany to such far-flung places as Hong Kong, Brasilia, Cairo, New York, Shanghai, Stockholm, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore, and Los Angeles. His subjects include international stock exchanges, vast hotels and apartment buildings, sporting championships and parliaments, and midnight raves attended by casts of thousands." "This large-format book is published to accompany the first American retrospective of Gursky's work, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the spring of 2001. Its full-page plates and generous details survey the artist's career from 1984 to the present. Peter Galassi's richly illustrated essay provides the first in-depth study of the artistic contexts, working methods, and evolution of Gursky's photography. The book concludes with a detailed Exhibition Chronology and Bibliography."--BOOK JACKET

A house full of music : strategies in music and art ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Before John Cage (1912-1992), there was hardly anyone as consistent as he was in questioning the boundaries of music and its connections to other fields of art and the everyday world. Along with Erik Satie, Marcel Duchamp, Nam June Paik, and Joseph Beuys, Cage is one of the greatest strategists and pioneers of twentieth-century music and art. Starting with these key figures, this publication examines twelve fundamental strategies of art and music since 1900: recording, collage, silence, destruction, calculation, coincidence, feeling, thought, belief, furnishing, repetition, and playing. Interdisciplinary essays by art and music theorists as well as exemplary works and original sources by artists, musicians, and composers are featured alongside visual documentation, showing the impressive diversity of parallel and overlapping activities between music and art from Laurie Anderson and Robert Filliou to Anri Sala and Iannis Xenakis
