Going Public : Public Architecture, Urbanism and Interventions / edited by Robert Klanten, Sven Ehmann, Sofia Borges, Matthias Hübner, and Lukas Feireiss. - Berlin : Gestalten, 2012. - 272 p. : ills. ; 31 cm
Includes index.
Going Public showcases the creative revival of public space in our urban and rural landscapes. As the industrial age has evolved into the information age, our cities have developed new potential. In the past, churches and marketplaces were the focus of our social lives. Today, however, different types of community centers are being established. In addition to the transformation of existing public squares, parks, and pavilions, original projects such as community gardens, outdoor movie theaters, temporary installations, and other cultural venues are being built. Thus, in the hearts of our cities--but also on their peripheries--a new kind of public space is being defined.

Deze publicatie is ontstaan tijdens een werkperiode bij LIA, Leipzig International Art Programme, in 2011. LIA is een non-profit residency programma.
In dit boek gebruikt Machiel van Soest geen zinnen maar lijsten van woorden in een bepaalde volgorde die gelezen moeten worden als een opsomming van beelden die ruimtes vertegenwoordigen,‭ ‬zowel fysieke ruimtes als ook denk-‭ ‬en emotionele ruimtes,‭ ‬als de achtergrond,‭ ‬surrounding décor,‭ ‬van alles,‭ ‬van alle tijden,‭ ‬van situaties en alle levens.‭ Hij gebruikt de metafoor van de wereld die zich reflecteert op de huid,‭ ‬de huid dus als het oppervlak en grens waar de existentie kan worden gevoeld.

Includes bibliographical references.
Masters of Reality brings together the first collection of texts by Steve Rushton. Second in a series of publications on contemporary art inaugurated by the Piet Zwart Institute, the book explores the interrelations between art, anthropology, social sciences, psychology, media, politics, and economy. Central to Rushton's research is an investigation into the conception of feedback, social control, and the culture of "self-performance." Through his writings and collaborative work with artists, he has developed and articulated a thorough analysis of the techniques and processes of information management and subjectivization in Western society since the second half of the twentieth century.

Star City : The Future under Communism / edited by Lukasz Ronduda, Alex Farquharson, Barbara Piwowarska ; wroters Georg Schöllhammer, Owen Hatherly, Boris Groys [ al.]. - Warsaw ; Nottingham, Vienna : MAMMAL Foundation : Nottingham Contemporary :, 2010. - 304 p. : ills. ; 22 cm
Star City revisits how the future was experienced and imagined under Communism through the works and words of artists, designers and writers. It concentrates on the interaction of three timeframes: our own post-communist era, the Khrushchev Thaw of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, and the Soviet avant-garde of the Revolutionary period. It is also evoked via allusions to the utopian, religious and scientific thought of the Russian Cosmists of the 19th and early-20th Century. Without reference to Cosmism it is impossible to fully understand the science fiction and avant-garde art of 1910s and ‘20s, or the quasi-religious significance that venturing into space reresented for Soviet subjects into the 1960s.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
This fascinating book offers a new perspective on the architectural history of the Second World War, which in previous accounts has most often been viewed as a hiatus between peaceful periods of production. Jean-Louis Cohen contends instead that during the years between the bombings of Guernica in 1937 and of Hiroshima in 1945, specific advances were fundamental to the process of modernization and led to the definitive supremacy of modernism in architecture.
