Copy, archive, signature : a conversation on photography by Jacques Derrida( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes available for the first time in English--and for the first time in its entirety in any language--an important yet little-known interview on the topic of photography that Jacques Derrida granted in 1992 to the German theorist of photography Hubertus von Amelunxen and the German literary and media theorist Michael Wetzel. Their conversation addresses, among other things, questions of presence and its manufacture, the technicity of presentation, the volatility of the authorial subject, and the concept of memory. Derrida offers a penetrating intervention with regard to the distinctive nature of photography vis-à-vis related technologies such as cinema, television, and video. Questioning the all-too-facile divides between so-called old and new media, original and reproduction, analog and digital modes of recording and presenting, he provides stimulating insights into the ways in which we think and speak about the photographic image today. Along the way, the discussion fruitfully interrogates the question of photography in relation to such key concepts as copy, archive, and signature. Gerhard Richter introduces the volume with a critical meditation on the relationship between deconstruction and photography by way of the concepts of translation and invention. Copy, Archive, Signature will be of compelling interest to readers in the fields of contemporary European critical thought, photography, aesthetic theory, media studies, and French Studies, as well as those following the singular intellectual trajectory of one the most influential thinkers of our time
Gordon Matta-Clark : moment to moment : space by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and German and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his astounding building cuts and intersects, Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978) opened up elegant geometries in the very structures that seem most substantial and most authoritative in urban existence, revealing the alienations of the urban fabric as convenient fictions and allowing life to flow into the most inhospitable and self-contained of buildings. One of his favorite responses to a work came from a Parisian concierge: "I see the purpose for that hole--it is an experiment in bringing light and air into spaces that never had enough of either." Throughout his all-too-brief career, Matta-Clark undertook civic aeration on many fronts, cofounding the now legendary Food Restaurant in 1971, buying up empty lots in Queens and evolving his theory of "anarchitecture" in films, photomontages and numerous writings and drawings. Anarchitecture redefined negative space in art as a political act, distinguishing itself from architecture by imagining a cure for its most pernicious effects. Gordon Matta-Clark: Moment to Moment offers a comprehensive overview of this courageous and liberating artist with a wealth of documentation and reproductions from across Matta-Clark's oeuvre, as well as critical commentary from Philip Ursprung, Angela Lammert, Hubertus von Amelunxen, Dan Graham and others

Notation : Kalkül und Form in den Künsten( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Notation. Calculation and Form in the Arts' is dedicated to the multifaceted spectrum of artistic process existing between concept and work. The exhibition places works from all areas of art from 1900 until today in relation to one another: sign systems in literature, music, painting, choreography, architecture, photography, film and in media art. Over 450 positions by more than 100 artists and drawn from international collections, the ZKM and the archive of the Academy of the Arts are to be presented. The show will be on display at the ZKM from mid February, 2009. During the 20th century, artists have repeatedly made visible new realities through the connection between scientific calculation and artistic form. Morphic resonances, serial structures and sound waves: Modernity has rediscovered the intellectual aspect of existence as a field of research for art. John Cage, Etienne-Jules Marey and Walter Benjamin, Edgard Varese and Iannis Xenakis, Mary Wigman and Robert Walser, Oskar Fischinger and Marcel Broodthaers, Allan McCollum and Mel Bochner, and Pierre Boulez: 20th century artists have designed fields of relations in notations, (in the words of Gyorgy Ligeti) either as directions for play, as means of communication or as an autonomous work
