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)
Kunst zum Hören: A House Full of Music:Strategien in Musik und Kunst Kunst zum Hören
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.
Acclaimed architect Gil Schafer illustrates how he blends classical architecture, interior decoration, and landscape to create homes with a feeling of history. As a traditional architect, Gil Schafer specializes in building new ´´old´´ houses as well as renovating historic homes. His work takes the best of American historic and classical architecture-its detailed moldings and harmonious proportions-and updates it, retaining its character and detail while simultaneously reworking it to be more in tune with the way we live now-comfortable, practical, family-oriented. In his first book, Schafer covers the three essential cornerstones of creating a great traditional house: architecture, landscape, and decoration. He discusses the important interplay between the interior architecture and the fabrics, furniture, and wall treatments. In-depth profiles build on these essays, including Schafer´s own new ´´old´´ house in the Hudson Valley; the renovation of a historic home in Nashville designed by Charles Platt in 1915; and the restoration of a magnificent 1843 Greek Revival mansion in Charleston. Filled with hundreds of interior and detail shots, The Great American House is an invaluable resource for anyone who loves old houses and traditional design.
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.
