Allan Kaprow, Robert Smithson, and the limits to art by Philip Ursprung( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
"This innovative study of two of the most important artists of the twentieth century links the art practices of Allan Kaprow and Robert Smithson in their attempts to test the limits of art--both what it is and where it is. Ursprung provides a sophisticated yet accessible analysis, placing the two artists firmly in the art world of the 1960s as well as in the art historical discourse of the following decades. Although their practices were quite different, they both extended the studio and gallery into desert landscapes, abandoned warehouses, industrial sites, train stations, and other spaces. Ursprung bolsters his argument with substantial archival research and sociological and economic models of expansion and limits"--
Nature design : from inspiration to innovation by Angeli (ed.) Sachs( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
"Nature has been a source of inspiration in the design of the human environment, and its influence on contemporary design is more than evident. The "model of nature," with its forms, structures, and organizing principles, does not only inspire the widest range of concept and design processes, but also can be expressed in a broad spectrum of forms and functions. Nature Design addresses this phenomenon from the eighteenth century until today, and presents an international selection of objects and projects from the fields of design, architecture, landscape architecture, art, photography, and scientific research that do not simply depict or imitate nature, but use it as a starting point and reservoir of inspiration for eclectic and innovative responses to the relationship between man and his environment."--BOOK JACKET

Caruso St John : almost everything by Philip Ursprung( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 106 libraries worldwide
"Adam Caruso and Peter St. John, partners in the London firm Caruso St. John, insist on architectural history as a creative resource, and on embracing that resource rather than forsaking it for the rat-race Modernist pursuit of novelty: as St. John argues, "The new for its own sake seems to us both hopeless and pathetic. We prefer characterful ugliness to calculated perfection." Aiming for a "richly associative" architecture that draws on the nature of its materials, Caruso St. John embraces outside disciplines like art, design, literature and philosophy to enrich its practice--Claes Oldenburg's 1960s work at the Storefront Gallery, for example. Almost Everything documents buildings and projects in Britain and Continental Europe since the early 1990s, and also assesses Caruso St. John's philosophy. With contributions by Philip Ursprung, Thomas Demand, John Blockehurst and Jonathan Glancey, it is a thorough overview of one of Britain's most independent-minded architectural firms."--BOOK JACKET

Atelier + Küche = Labore der Sinne ( Book )

Die Nähe zwischen künstlerischem Schaffen und Kochkunst ist faszinierend und dennoch wenig beachtet.

Die Bedeutung und Darstellung von Atelier und Küche heute und in der Geschichte werden betrachtet: Künstlerische Arbeitsstätten haben sich von handwerklichen Meisterbetrieben über repräsentative Ateliers und fabrikähnliche Lofts zu hochtechnisierten Multimedia-Labs entwickelt. Parallel vollzog sich der Wandel von der archaischen Feuerstelle über die bäuerliche Wohn- und effiziente Garküche zur High-Tech-Ausstattunf. Gezeigt werden Holzstiche aus dem 16. Jahrhundert und Gemälde des Goldenen Zeitalters Pieter Bruegels d. Ä. sowie Arbeiten von Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol und Zeitgenossen wie Cindy Sherman und Erwin Wurm.0Exhibition: MARTa Herford, Germany (12.5.-16.9.2012)
