READING: Om de geschiedenis van de kunst goed te begrijpen, moeten we ook de geschiedenis van materiaaltoepassingen en maakprocessen kennen."Kunsttechnieken in historisch perspectief" wil feitelijke kennis bijbrengen over veelvuldig gebruikte materialen en bewerkingsmethoden, maar ook de vraag beantwoorden waarom een bepaalde techniek favoriet werd en daarna door een andere verdrongen. Het boek wil eveneens aanzetten tot het nadenken over de implicaties van het maakproces voor andere aspecten van de kunstgeschiedenis. Kunsttechnieken in historisch perspectief bestaat uit twintig hoofdstukken die kunsttechnieken uit zowel de oude beeldende kunst als moderne en hedendaagse kunst betreffen: schilderkunstige technieken, beeldhouwtechnieken, tekentechnieken, grafische technieken, fotografie, video, digitale kunst en installatiekunst.

READING: One of the most widely read books on modern design, Nikolaus Pevsner's landmark work today remains as stimulating as it was when first published in 1936. This expanded edition of Pioneers of Modern Design provides Pevsner's original text along with significant new and updated information, enhancing Pevsner's illuminating account of the roots of Modernism. The book now offers many beautiful colour illustrations; updated biographies and bibliographies of all major figures; illustrated short essays on key themes, movements, and individuals; a critique of Pevsner's analysis from today's perspective; examples of works after 1914 (where the original study ended); a biography detailing Pevsner's life and achievements; and much more. Pevsner saw Modernism as a synthesis of three main sources: William Morris and his followers, the work of nineteenth-century engineers, and Art Nouveau. The author considers the role of these sources in the work of early Modernists and looks at such masters of the movement as C.F.A. Voysey and Charles Rennie Mackintosh in Britain, Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright in America, and Adolf Loos and Otto Wagner in Vienna. The account concludes with a discussion of the radical break with the past represented by the design work of Walter Gropius and his future Bauhaus colleagues. Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-1983), a distinguished scholar of art and architecture, was best known as editor of the 46-volume series The Buildings of England and as founding editor of The Pelican History of Art.

READING: his anthology compiled from volumes 3-10 of Design Issues, includes material from areas seldom discussed in existing surveys and will facilitate the general discourse within the design community on a wide range of conceptual and methodological issues of contemporary design history. Design history has emerged in recent years as a significant field of scholarly research and critical reflection. With their interest in the conceptualization, production, and consumption of objects (large and small, unique or multiple, anonymous or signed) and environments (ephemeral or enduring, public or private), design historians investigate the multiple ways in which intentionally produced objects, environments, and experiences both shape and reflect their historical moments. This anthology compiled from volumes 3-10 of Design Issues, includes material from areas seldom discussed in existing surveys and will facilitate the general discourse within the design community on a wide range of conceptual and methodological issues of contemporary design history. Individual essays investigate various aspects of design in the modern era. They provide fresh insights on familiar figures such as Harley Earl and Norman Bel Geddes and shed new light on neglected aspects of design history such as the history of women in early American graphic design or the history of modern design in China. The essays are grouped in three broad categories: Graphic Design, Design in the American Corporate Milieu, and Design in the Context of National Experiences. Contributors David Brett, Bradford R.

The Book History of Modern Architecture
The Author Leonardo Benevolo
The Publisher MIT Press
Release Date1977
Genre Architecture
Pages 868
ISBN 0262520451
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Let it be said at once that the format of this work is richly handsome: it is atwo-volume boxed set comprising 844 pages and well over 1,000 high-quality illustrations, and itreflects throughout its publisher's conviction that good design is an essential, not superficial,part of bookmaking.Beyond that, it should be emphasized that this work is not another facilecultural tour of modern architecture. It is a serious and original study of the beginnings anddevelopment of modernism in which the pictorial aspects are designed to aid in the communication ofthe author's closely reasoned formulations, rather than to gloss over a lack of substantivecontent.The book is a translation of the third Italian edition, published in 1966. Benevolo, who ison the faculty of architecture in Venice, has earned an international reputation as a historian ofarchitecture and town planning, and his publications embrace the span of time from the Renaissanceto the foreseeable future. One such publication, The Origins of Modern Town Planning (The MIT Press,1967), may be read as a prelude to the present work as well as an independent contribution. Perhapsmore than any other architectural historian in our time, Benevolo has made a determined effort toplace developments in design and planning in their proper social and political settings.Indeed, theauthor argues that the development of the modern movement in architecture was determined, not byaesthetic formalisms, but largely by the social changes that have occurred since about 1760: "Afterthe middle of the eighteenth century, without the continuity of formal activity being in any waybroken, indeed while architectural language seems to be acquiring a particular coherence, therelations between architect and society began to change radically.... New material and spiritualneeds, new ideas and modes of procedure arise both within and beyond the traditional limits, andfinally they run together to form a new architectural synthesis that is completely different fromthe old one. In this way it is possible to explain the birth of modern architecture, which otherwisewould seem completely incomprehensible...."This second volume is concerned with the modern movementproper, from 1914 to 1966. The author emphasizes the unity of the movement, rejecting the usualtreatment that allots to the individual architects separate and unconnected biographicalaccounts.Benevolo remarks at one point, "When one talks about modern architecture one must bear inmind the fact that it implies not only a new range of forms, but also a new way of thinking, whoseconsequences have not yet all been calculated." His main concern is to provide a more exactcalculation of those consequences.

Pages 225
ISBN 9780300121025
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Arriving in the United States in 1914, Viennese-born Paul T. Frankl (1886-1958) brought with him an outsider’s fresh perspective and an enthusiasm for forging a uniquely American design aesthetic. In the years between the two world wars he, more than any other designer, helped shape the distinctive look of American modernism. This authoritative book draws on an extensive collection of unpublished documents and family papers and photographs to provide the first full account of Frankl’s life and ideas. The book also explores the history of modern American design and the extent of Frankl’s influence on its trajectory. In the early 1920s, Frankl opened a New York City shop that became an epicenter of American modernism. Over the next decades, his work encompassed everything from individual pieces of furniture and decorative accessories to entire interiors, and his style continuously evolved, from early "Skyscraper” furniture to relaxed and casual designs favored by the Hollywood elite in the 1930s to manufactured pieces for the mass market in the 1950s. The book charts the impact of Frankl’s ideas on merchants and consumers, on his fellow designers, and on the changing look of American homes and workplaces. With close to 170 illustrations, Paul T. Frankl and Modern American Design is an essential reference on 20th-century design.

READING: 'Een van de belangrijkste boeken die ik ooit heb gelezen.' Bill Gates 'Iedereen zou dit boek moeten lezen.' de Volkskrant Wat is nu de gemiddelde levensverwachting in de wereld? Hoeveel meisjes maken de basisschool af? Welk percentage van de wereldbevolking leeft in armoede? Hoeveel kinderen in de wereld zijn nu ingeënt tegen een ziekte? Op eenvoudige vragen over wereldwijde trends geven we systematisch de verkeerde antwoorden. Het is zelfs zo erg dat een chimpansee die willekeurig antwoorden kiest consequent leraren, journalisten, Nobelprijswinnaars en studenten overtreft. In Feitenkennis legt hoogleraar Internationale Gezondheid en wereldfenomeen Hans Rosling uit waarom dit gebeurt. Hij presenteert daarbij tien redenen en komt zo met een radicaal nieuwe verklaring. Ons probleem is dat we niet weten wat we niet weten, en dat zelfs onze gissingen gebaseerd zijn op onbewuste en voorspelbare vooroordelen. Het blijkt dat onze wereld in een veel betere staat is dan we denken. Dat betekent niet dat er geen echte zorgen zijn. Maar als we ons de hele tijd zorgen maken om de verkeerde dingen en ons niet richten op de feiten, kunnen we het zicht verliezen op de dingen die ons het meest bedreigen. Feitenkennis zit boordevol anekdotes, aangrijpende verhalen en uiteraard met de kenmerkende grafieken van Rosling. Het is een inspirerend, onthullend en ook essentieel boek dat de manier waarop je de wereld ziet compleet zal veranderen. Hans Rosling was een Zweedse arts en hoogleraar Internationale Gezondheid. Hij was adviseur van de Wereldgezondheidsorganisatie en UNICEF, en medeoprichter van Gapminder. Daarnaast presenteerde hij wetenschappelijke documentaires op de BBC, gaf hij een van de best bekeken TED Talks aller tijden, en behoorde tot 'the 100 most influential people' volgens Time Magazine. Hij overleed op 7 februari 2017 op 68-jarige leeftijd en wijdde de laatste jaren van zijn leven aan het schrijven van dit boek.

Pages 530
ISBN 9781472429391
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. The first section provides a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.
