Kunst zum Hören: A House Full of Music:Strategien in Musik und Kunst Kunst zum Hören
Wie kaum ein anderer vor ihm hat John Cage (1912-1992) die Frage nach den Grenzen der Musik und ihren Verbindungen zu anderen Kunstfeldern und der Alltagswelt immer wieder neu gestellt. Gemeinsam mit Erik Satie, Marcel Duchamp, Nam June Paik, und Joseph Beuys zählt er zu den großen Strategen und Pionieren der Musik und Kunst im 20. Jahrhundert. Ausgehend von diesen Schlüsselfiguren lotet das Hörbuch erstmals zwölf grundlegende Strategien der Kunst und Musik seit 1900 aus: speichern, collagieren, schweigen, zerstören, rechnen, würfeln, fühlen, denken, glauben, möblieren, wiederholen, spielen. Interdisziplinäre Essays von Kunst- und Musikwissenschaftlern sowie beispielhafte Werk- und Quellentexte von Künstlern, Musikern und Komponisten kommen zur Aussprache und verdeutlichen zusammen mit einem Bildband die Vielfalt paralleler Aktivitäten und Überschneidungen zwischen Musik und Kunst - von Laurie Anderson über Robert Filliou und Anri Sala bis zu Iannis Xenakis. Ausstellung: Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt 13.5.-9.9.2012 Zur Ausstellung erscheint auch ein Katalog (deutsche Ausgabe ISBN 978-3-7757-3318-2; französische Ausgabe ISBN 978-3-7757-3319-9)
The English Country House takes a look at the architecture and interiors of sixty-two stunning houses in a range of architectural styles spanning seven centuries-from the medieval Stokesay Castle to the newly built, Lutyens-inspired Corfe Farm-brought to life through the world-renowned photography library of Country Life. More than four hundred color and black and white illustrations provide an insight into the architecture, decoration, gardens, and landscape settings of these houses, which are set into their architectural and historical context by the accompanying text and extended captions. The book provides an entrée into the houses to which Country Life has had privileged access over the years, many of which are still private homes, often occupied by descendants of the families that built them. Punctuating the book at intervals in the form of booklets on rich, uncoated paper are six essays by leading British architectural historians that set the English country house into its social context and chart the changing tastes in decorating and collecting, the development of ancillary buildings, gardens and landscapes, and finally, its influence in the United States.
Oscar Niemeyer is one of the greatest architects of our time. Hugely influential, his work has added a new dimension to modern architecture in the twentieth century. The designer of Brasilia showed that the rhythmic, sensuous lines of Brazilian Modernism were as legitimately modern as the rectilinear lines of the Bauhaus. Oscar Niemeyer Houses showcases the houses built by this seminal modern master in a lavish format that finally does justice to his extraordinary work. Viewed as a collection, these houses serve to demonstrate the wide range of Niemeyer´s prodigious genius. The designs show a personal and eclectic facet to Niemeyer´s creative imagination, a side of the master little known and under-appreciated. Often built for family members or major clients, they show a wealth of solutions that respond to a wide range of sites: the steep hillsides of Rio, the Atlantic beach shore, the rain forest, and the residential neighborhoods of Rio and Sao Paulo. This celebrated work stands as an enduring and notable tribute to one of the last of the international masters of Modernism.
The homes of the discerning Hollywood stars, from Grouch Marx to Leonardo DiCaprio This book looks at the intersection of celebrity and design, through the case of twenty-five houses designed by great architects for their informed, trend-setting, and extremely famous clients, in Southern California. Included are gorgeous photos of the houses as well as little seen informal portraits of the stars and wonderfully detailed texts that tell the story of these members of the glitterati, touching on film, fashion, architecture, and the everyday lives of legends. Hollywood Modern spans the modern era, from moderne homes of the 1930s, through mid-century modern designs, to the present day. Hollywood Modern touches on the many moods of modernism. From Ed Niles ´´Johnny Carson House´´ in Malibu, which creates a ficus tree forest that extends from the garden directly into the house, to the machine-age austerity of Richard Neutra´s ´´Von Sternberg House,´´ (later owned by The Fountainhead author Ayn Rand), to A. Quincy Jones´ crisply, elegantly ultramodern Gary Cooper House in Holmby Hills, these houses edit, rearrange and direct our point of view much like the carefully composed version of reality we see in motion pictures. These different styles co-exist as modernism and stand in distinct contrast to the Mediterranean villas and Spanish Colonial manses of early Hollywood.
This exciting new book on British country houses offers an unusual and magnificent look at the lifestyle, architecture, and interior design of the country house of the British Isles. From Brideshead to Downton Abbey, the country house is a subject of fantasy and curiosity, as well as a rich resource to explore the history of great architecture and decoration and the lives of landowners and those who made the houses work. With hundreds of photographs from the National Trust, and others from public and private collections, this visually lavish volume draws back the curtain on important historic homes in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. At the same time it reveals the complex stories of these interiors, both grand and hidden, from great halls, libraries and entryways to the kitchens and stables and gardens. Locations featured include Knole, Cragside, Castle Howard, Chatsworth, Polesden Lacey, Petworth, Bodiam Castle, Blenheim, Longleat, and dozens more. An insightful essay by renowned British author and historian David Cannadine explores how the idea of the country house has changed over the past forty years. Additional essays reflect on how changing twentieth century values have impacted the country house, with contributions by writers and scholars such as Sarah Callander-Beckett on the private house, Dr. Madge Dresser on slavery and the country house, and Dr. Oliver Cox on the ´Downton Abbey ´effect.´ The texts are woven around extensive picture essays, introduced and curated by country house specialist Jeremy Musson, which look at the identity and image of British country houses of all kinds and the stories they contain.
