Minority rights : the key to conflict prevention by Clive Baldwin( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
This report argues that an understanding of minority rights is essential for anyone dealing with conflict prevention and resolution. MRG's report shows how minority rights violations are often warning signs of an approaching conflict. This new report looks at five themes: minority identity, the ability of minorities to participate in political and economic life, land/property rights and justice issues. The international community's record on minority rights and conflict prevention is examined and found wanting. The report concludes with a checklist and a series of recommendations aimed at international bodies working on conflict prevention and resolution

Alexandre da Cunha by Alexandre da Cunha( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 24 libraries worldwide
"With English and Portuguese translation: This is the first survey catalog of Brazilian-born, London-based artist Alexandre da Cunha. The works considered span from 2004-2012. Da Cunha takes everyday objects beach towels, curtain railings, mop heads and turns them into sculptures that, at a cursory glance, ask to be considered formally, within Modernist and Minimalist language. It is only through the nullification of these items utility that da Cunha can poke fun, not only at our knee-jerk art historical and cultural associations, but also at our notions of functionality. With forward essay "Not Pouring Paint on a Banana: The Concrete Poetry of Alexandre da Cunha" By Zoe Gray."--Publisher description

Geoffrey Farmer by Geoffrey Farmer( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
This Sourcebook is a space of reflection occasioned by the exhibition. Three extraordinary essayists - Diedrich Diederichsen, Vanessa Desclaux and Thierry Davila -- were invited to encounter the artist's mercurial practice in different contexts. They speculate on his inventive approach to temporality, to the spaces of theater, film and performance, and to the workings of memory, meaning and art historical references. Farmer himself recomposes visual and texual fragments of his exhibition, which after a month of daily transformation came to be known as Forgetting Air

Erik van Lieshout. The show must go on by Zoë Gray( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Erik van Lieshout first became known in the early 2000s for his visceral videos in which he often plays a central role, shown in environments of his own making: installations whose rough, bricolaged forms belie their sophistication. Whilst his immediate subject matter is often directly influenced by the political and social context of the Netherlands, van Lieshout?s work provocatively raises issues that are relevant across Europe and beyond: immigration and integration, class and gentrification. Despite these weighty topics, his work can be outrageously funny, using satire to reveal the failings of our society. With equally brutal honesty, he explores his own failings, both as a human being and as an artist. In recent works, he particularly questions art?s direct social impact and its potential to do good. 0Exhibition: Wiels, Brussels, Belgium (30.09.2016-08.01.2017)

Making is thinking ( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Witte de With is pleased to announce the exhibition "Making is Thinking". This group show featuring fifteen international artists explores distinct artistic practices engaged with notions of conceptual craft and intuitive industry. It seeks to collapse the persistent dichotomy between the practical and the intellectual, and presents a range of works that refuse the binary of concept and form. In recent years, craft has been held up to epitomize a set of social values that poses an alternative to the logic of industrial production, global capitalism and mass consumerism. This broad idea of craft incorporates many elements of Modernism, is informed by postmodernism, and offers a radical way for rethinking questions of work, both within and beyond the artistic field. Many artists are turning to this expanded notion of craft as a paradigm for making that seems to fuse previously oppositional positions - such as the trace of the artist's hand and conceptual reflection - and are exploring its potential for reconsidering broader questions of production. Among the artworks included in "Making is Thinking", several overlapping areas of interest are discernible: There is a fascination with the role of the amateur, occupied with absurdly time-consuming activities that verge on meditation (Wilfrid Almendra, Dewar & Gicquel, Teppei Kaneuji, Hans Schabus). There is an analysis of the process of creation, and its transformation into a new moment of creation (Hedwig Houben, Ane Hjort Guttu, Edgar Leciejewski). There is an exploration of sculpture's relation to the applied arts, a struggle between functionalism and formalism that avoids any hint of nostalgia (Julia Dault, Rita McBride, Eva Rothschild). There is a flourishing of decoration and beauty within the reassessment of certain Modernist tropes (Eva Berendes, Alexandre Da Cunha). There is the avoidance of conscious thinking and the emphasis on intuitive knowledge (William J. O'Brien, Koki Tanaka). And in many of the works there is a knowing humor or irony, which deflates the pious earnestness that can accompany discussions of craft
