Architecture, the Built Environment and the Aftermath of the First World War Edited by Neal Shasore, London School of Architecture, UK & Jessica Kelly, University for the Creative Arts, UK

Architecture Thinking across Boundaries

Knowledge transfers since the 1960s Edited by Rajesh Heynickx, KU Leuven, Belgium, Ricardo Costa Agarez, Évora University, Portugal & Elke Couchez, University of Hasselt, Belgium

Reconstruction explores the immediate and longer term aftermath of the First World War on the architecture of Britain and the British Empire during the interwar years. Written by leading and emerging scholars, this collection of essays considers the complex effects of reconstruction on design, discourse, practice, and professionalism, and deals with the full spectrum of architectural styles and approaches, privileging neither Modernism nor traditional styles like the neo-Georgian. It brings to the fore social and political histories of the built environment, and makes important postcolonial interventions into the architectural history of British Imperialism at home and in its far reaches.

Architecture Thinking Across Boundaries looks at architectural theory through the lens of intellectual history. 12 original essays explore a variety of themes, each examining how architectural knowledge has been transferred across social, spatial, and paradigmatic boundaries – whether through international circulation of ideas; exchanges with other disciplines; or transfers from design practice to theory and back again – and in each case examining the resulting transformations and resistances. Taken together, the essays in this book offer a new perspective on the processes by which architectural theory is produced, disseminated and tested, and suggests many ideas for future exploration.

Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture Kay Fisker

Works and Ideas in Danish Modern Architecture Martin Søberg, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Denmark Kay Fisker (1893-1965) is considered one of the most influential Danish architects of the twentieth century, and yet there has existed until now no in-depth English-language study of his works and writing. Published as part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture series, this book examines Fisker’s key projects – from his early railways stations and innovative housing projects to the Danish Academy in Rome – and analyses his work as a historian and writer.

Boredom, Architecture, and Spatial Experience

Christian Parreno, Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador Boredom, Architecture, and Spatial Experience demonstrates how an understanding of boredom affords us a new way of looking at and understanding the modern architectural experience. It reconstructs a series of episodes in architectural history from the 19th century to the present, combining archival material, literary sources and illuminating excerpts from conversations with practitioners and thinkers to explore how boredom became a normalised component of modernity, how it infiltrated into the production and reception of modern architecture, and how it serves to expose moments of crisis in the architecture of the 20th century.

Ludwig Hilberseimer

Architecture, Planning, and Art Criticism – Berlin, Bauhaus, USA Scott Colman, Rice School of Architecture, USA

V I S U A L A R T S – Architecture / Art & Visual Culture


Despite being internationally-known for his work on Lafayette Park in Detroit, Ludwig Hilberseimer’s legacy has been obscured in the history of modern architecture. Whether this is due to the intense shadow cast by his long-standing collaborator Ludwig Mies van der Roh, or by his oeuvre being split between the differing languages and contexts of interwar Germany and postwar North America, it is now clear that he was an important Bauhaus teacher and central to avantgarde art and architecture in the Weimar Republic. This book argues that the time is now right for a critical reassessment of Hilberseimer’s work and writings.

Women, Aging, and Art A Crosscultural Anthology

Edited by Frima Fox Hofrichter, Pratt Institute, USA & Midori Yoshimoto, New Jersey City University, USA What images come to mind with the words: women, aging, old, even elderly? Are they stereotypes? Are there any positive associations? 13 chapters explore images of old women from medieval “old wives” to contemporary reimaginations of shamans and witches and empowering selfportraits. Works from medieval Europe to colonial-time Polynesia, present West Africa, Japan, and the Americas, in a multiplicity of media are explored. These studies of varied representations of “old women” offer fresh perspectives and a dialogue about society’s values and preconceptions regarding the “golden years” in different times and cultures and the wisdom of our elders.

Visual Activism in the 21st Century Art, Protest and Resistance in an Uncertain World

Edited by Stephanie Hartle & Darcy White, both of Sheffield Hallam University, UK This anthology provides a fresh perspective on the possibilities, limitations and politics of visual activism, as activists, artists, and curators adjust and flex to the changing world around them in this most uncertain of times. Across 22 case-studies from across the globe, the book provides an up-to-date picture of the impact of contemporary visual and art activism, combining a scholarly interrogation of visual activism with an examination of how it works in practice. This diverse scope enables readers to consider examples comparatively – noticing emerging trends and key differences to reveal how geopolitical and cultural factors play an important role in shaping activist practices.

Contemporary Art from Cyprus Politics, Identities, and Cultures across Borders

Edited by Elena Stylianou, European University Cyprus, Evanthia Tselika, University of Nicosia, Cyprus & Gabriel Koureas, Birkbeck, University of London, UK This edited volume uses Cyprus as a case study for the exploration of notions of the global and the local, identity, and regionalism in contemporary art practices. The book is not a complete historiography of contemporary Cypriot art; it aims to become a critical text for further discussions and debates through providing a theoretical and historical framework that contextualizes current and future art practices from Cyprus, always in relation to the international art scene.

Concerning Stephen Willats and the Social Function of Art Experiments in Cybernetics and Society Sharon Irish, University of Illinois, USA This book on Stephen Willats pulls together key strands of his practice and threads them through histories of British cybernetics, experimental art, and urban design. For Willats, a cluster of concepts about control and feedback within living and machine systems (cybernetics) offered a new means to make art relevant. For decades, Willats has built relationships through art with people in tower blocks, underground punk clubs, middle-class enclaves like Harrow, and warehouses on the Isle of Dogs. Here, Sharon Irish argues that it is artists like Willats who are now the instigators of social transformation.

Ellen Emmet Rand

Gender, Art, and Business Edited by Alexis L. Boylan, University of Connecticut, USA Ellen Emmet Rand (1875-1941) was one of the most important portraitists in the United States in the 20th century; she painted the most powerful and ambitious people who could pay for her time and talent. Rand negotiated her career, family, and finances in modern, commercially savvy ways suggesting the strategies women artists had to ruthlessly navigate to balance competing pressures. Engaging with newly available archival documents and featuring innovative scholars, this collection not only seeks to reimagine the meaning of Rand’s portraits and her career, but dialogues about gender, art, race, business, and modernism in the twentieth century.

Art Markets, Agents and Collectors

Collecting Strategies in Europe and the United States, 1550-1950 Edited by Adriana Turpin, IESA International Programmes, France & Susan Bracken, Birkbeck College, UK The case studies provided in this book nuance the history of the art market and the role of the collector within it. Using letters, diaries, account books and other archival sources, the chapters together show how agents set up networks and acquired works of art, often developing the taste and knowledge of the collectors for whom they were working. Each chronological period is introduced by a contextual essay, written by a leading expert in the field, which sets out the art market in the period concerned and the ways in which agents functioned.

Tupaia, Captain Cook and the Voyage of the Endeavour

Edited by Serena Dyer, De Montfort University, UK & Chloe Wigston Smith, University of York, UK

Edited by Khadija Von Zinnenburg Carroll, University of Birmingham, UK

A Nation of Makers

A Material History

These interdisciplinary essays invite us into the workshops, drawing rooms, and backrooms of a broad range of makers to uncover the key place of material literacy in Britain’s consumer revolution. Making could be taxing, laborious and frustrating, but it was also sociable, pleasurable, creative and skilled. It was a complex, codified and creative practice that forged collective vocabularies of manual labour and connected elite, middling and labouring people who relied on their material literacy to understand domestic and imported goods. Uncovering these languages and practices illuminates how this nation of shopkeepers was as much a nation of makers.

Centring Tupaia and Pacific worldviews, this book weaves a new set of cultural histories in the Pacific between local islanders and the crew of the Endeavour on James Cook’s first ‘voyage of discovery’ (1768-1771). This book revisits material collections brought back from the voyage, with chapters covering Tupaia’s drawings, journals and cartography, textiles and objects of old worlds and new, clothing, animal iconography, instruments and ethnomusicology, and performances and rituals. Bringing together Pacific and indigenous artists and scholars, this book presents a cross-cultural conversation around the concepts of acquired and curated museum artefacts that traversed oceans and entwined cultures.

Challenging the Limits of the Portrait

The portrait has historically been understood as an artistic representation of a human subject. Its purpose was to create visual or psychological likenesses or the expression of personal, familial or social identity; it was typically associated with the privileged individual. Recent scholarship in the humanities and social sciences however has responded to the complex nature of twenty-first century subjectivity and proffered fresh conceptual models and theories to analyse it. The contributors to Anti-Portraiture examine individuality via a range of media including sculpture, photography, installation and sound art, making a convincing case for an expanded definition of portraiture.

Feminism and Art in Postwar Italy The Legacy of Carla Lonzi

Edited by Francesco Ventrella, University of Sussex, UK & Giovanna Zapperi, University of Tours, France A renowned art critic of the 1960s, Carla Lonzi abandoned the art world in 1970 to found Rivolta Femminile, a pioneering feminist collective in Italy. Rather than separating the art world luminary from the activist, however, this book looks at the two together. It demonstrates that even as Lonzi refused art, she articulated how feminist spaces and communities drew strength from creativity. Her written work and activism represents a crucial, but previously overlooked, feminist intervention in traditional art history from beyond the Anglo-American canon.

Material Literacy in 18thCentury Britain

In Defence of Marginal Anarchy

The eminent art historian and philosopher Edgar Wind is mainly remembered as the author of Pagan Mysteries in the Renaissance (1958). Throughout his life, however, he was passionately interested in modern art, and recognized as a compelling public speaker on this topic. He gave, for example, a remarkable series of lectures at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 1942, and was a friend of artists like Tchelitchew, Shahn and Kitaj. Ben Thomas’ astute analysis of Wind’s views on modern art reveals his robust challenge to the prevailing formalism of the age, and a new understanding of the iconographical approach.

The Present Prospects of Social Art History

Edited by Robert Slifkin, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, USA & Anthony E. Grudin, Independent Scholar, USA The Present Prospects of Social Art History represents a major reconsideration of how art historians analyze works of art and the role that historical factors play in informing their interpretations. Featuring the work of some of the discipline’s leading scholars, this volume contains a collection of essays that consider the advantages, limitations, and specific challenges of approaching works of art primarily through a historical perspective. The assembled texts, along with an introduction by the co-editors, demonstrate an array of possible methodological approaches that acknowledge the significance of historical context in the creation, reception, and exhibition of works of art.

An Introduction to Semiotics in the Visual Arts Basic semiotic theories are taught in most art schools as part of a contextual studies program, but many students find it difficult to understand how these ideas might impact on their own practice. Visible Signs tackles this problem by introducing key theories and concepts, such as signs and signifiers, and language and speech, within the framework of visual communication. The fourth edition of Visible Signs includes new interviews with industry professionals and updated exercises, as well as a necessary new chapter on fake news, propaganda, diversity in ‘neutral’ communication (like emojis), and issues related to social media representation.

Design and Modernity in Asia

Transnational Exchanges through Art, Architecture and Design from 1945

With an impressively global scope, this book explores approaches to the study of exhibitions within and beyond the disciplinary boundaries of art and design history. After World War II, exhibition spaces such as museums and fairs and festivals were increasingly used as locations for the exercise of ‘soft power', for displays of cultural diplomacy between nations and for addressing social and political contestation. Featured case studies include explorations of the life and work of Misha Black, Belgo-American exchanges during the Cold War, Israel's appearance at the 1948-1952 Venice Biennale and the Vatican Pavilion at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair.

An Introduction to Research Methods in Graphic Design

National Identity and Transnational Exchange 1945-1990

Addressing histories of modernism and contributing to the fast-growing body of literature on postcolonialism and Western global design history, this book examines different designs for and meanings of ‘modern living' across 20th-century Asia. The book provides methodological approaches to studying Asian modern design history, expanding the discourse of modernism to include areas such as Bangladesh, Iran, Korea and Turkey, and exploring how marginalised individuals and groups encountered modernity. Developed from extensive research and a variety of case studies, each chapter illuminates commonalities and particularities of the trajectories of modernism and their translation and manifestation in Asian living.

Through case studies, Martin argues that design is not necessarily for the social good; it has contradictions and confusions.

Britishness, Heritage, Labour and Consumption

Global fashion markets, particularly those aimed at prosperous millennial consumers in Asia, are in thrall to Burberry, and connect the company’s output in the 21st century to a quintessential notion of British tradition. The Changing Face of Burberry examines how the company successfully built this sense of tradition and how it has retained and capitalised on it within contemporary consumer culture, providing an authoritative account of shifting forms of British identity, consumer culture and fashion production over two centuries.

Rei Kawakubo

Curating Italian Fashion

Edited by Rex Butler, Monash University, Australia

Matteo Augello, London College of Fashion, UK

For and Against Fashion

Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons is undoubtedly one of the most influential designers in the world. In 2017 she was the second living designer to ever be given a retrospective at the renowned Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Her work exerts extraordinary influence over generations of creatives and is a major point of reference for those exploring the role of fashion in contemporary culture. This book asks how Kawakubo’s work relates to art, philosophy and architecture, and illustrates how Kawakubo’s oeuvre can be used to understand fashion itself.

Curating Italian Fashion provides unprecedented insight into the management of Italian fashion heritage and presents a comprehensive account of the development of fashion curation in Italy. Through the critical analysis of key examples such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Pitti Immagine and Gucci, Matteo Augello unfolds the ties between the preservation of fashion heritage and corporate policies, illustrating how the inevitable commercial interests underlying fashion curation can exist alongside the scholarly contribution of corporate initiatives. It is essential reading for scholars, industry professionals and students interested in the inter-sections of curation, heritage, national identity and corporate cultural policies.

Fear and Clothing

A Cultural History of Identity through Dress in English Detective Fiction Between the First and Second World Wars Jane Custance Baker, Independent Scholar, UK Dress in English detective fiction was a status marker of interest to both male and female readers made anxious by social change brought about by war, and therefore a set of signs to be read, digested, and possibly employed to model the individual reader’s own dress choices. Through analysing dress in detective fiction, this book reveals a cultural history of identity affected by the social upheaval caused by war. In-depth analysis of 280 interwar publications by a comprehensive range of writers reveals readership’s anxieties about performance of class, gender, and race and how they changed over that period.

Fashion Remains

Rethinking Ephemera in the Archive Marco Pecorari, Parsons Paris, The New School, France Fashion ephemera – from catalogues and invitations to press releases – have long been overlooked by the fashion industry. This book redresses the balance, considering these objects not as disposable promotional devices, but as windows into hidden networks of collaboration and inspiration. Fashion Remains explores the unseen fashion ephemera produced by today’s international fashion designers. This book focuses on Antwerp’s avant-garde fashion scene and takes us from Maison Margiela to Dries Van Noten. With over 100 colour images, Fashion Remains illuminates the far-from-fleeting significance of fashion ephemera as collaborative spaces for designers, stylists, art directors, and photographers.

Picturing the Woman-Child

Wearing the Niqab

Morna Laing, Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, UK

Anna Piela, Northwestern University, USA

Fashion, Feminism and the Female Gaze The childlike character of ideal femininity has long been critiqued by feminists from Mary Wollstonecraft to Simone de Beauvoir. Exploring the ways in which this model has cemented inequality between the sexes, Picturing the WomanChild interrogates the centrality of childlike women in the Western fashion media from 1990 and 2015, despite successive waves of feminism.

Muslim Women in the UK and the US The niqab has become a symbol of everything that is perceived to be wrong with Islam— barbarity, backwardness, female exploitation, and radicalization—and these meanings are regularly ascribed to niqabis without consultation, in debates where wearers are absent. This book counteracts this absence by bringing niqab-wearers’ voices to the fore in first-hand accounts of religious agency, identity, community, and urban spaces. Situating wearers’ experiences firmly in socio-political and media contexts, the book demonstrates that, for many wearers, political symbols are deeply personal, freely chosen, multi-layered, and socially situated.

Postwar American Fashion and Culture Sonya Abrego, Parsons: The New School for Design and the Pratt Institute, New York City, USA During the prosperous, forward-thinking era after the Second World War, a growing number of men, women, and children across the United States were wearing fashions that evoked the Old West. By analysing wellknown and rarely considered western manufacturers, Westernwear revises the common perception that fashionable innovation came from the East coast and places western youth cultures squarely back in the picture. Setting westernwear firmly in context, Sonya Abrego addresses the incorporation of this iconic style into postwar wardrobes and popular culture, and charts the evolution of westernwear into a modern fashion phenomenon.

American Milliners and their World

Women's Work from Revolution to Rock and Roll Nadine Stewart, Montclair State University, USA American Milliners and their World examines the position of the milliner in American society from the 18th to the 20th century. Concentrating on the struggle of female hat-makers to claim their social place, it takes the reader from the Industrial Revolution of the 1760s to the sexual revolution of the 1960s, and from Belle Epoque feathers to Jackie Kennedy’s pillbox hat. Nadine Stewart draws on diaries, etiquette books, trade journals and contemporary literature, offering a new insight into the rise and fall of a fashionable industry.

Disseminating Dress

Britain's Fashion Networks, 1600–1970 Edited by Serena Dyer, De Montfort University, UK, Jade Halbert, University of Huddersfield, UK & Sophie Littlewood, Welbeck Abbey, UK Fashion travels. Every new shape of sleeve, each novel method of cutting and any innovation in fabric has spread through complex networks of makers, retailers and consumers. This collection brings together innovative scholarship from an interdisciplinary group of historians, art historians and fashion scholars to consider how global and local networks of dress dissemination converged to shape fashionable dress in Britain, and how British methods and aesthetics spread outwards across the world. From the drawing rooms of 19th-century London, to the verandas of 19th-century Australia, contributors to Disseminating Dress develop narratives of commodity and knowledge exchange to consider how fashion circulated.

Dressing and Undressing Duchamp

Ingrid E. Mida, Independent Art and Dress Historian, Artist and Curator, Canada Marcel Duchamp’s engagement with clothing has been little-studied. However, photographs of the artist immediately reveal his knowledge of the significance of fashion and clothing to the visual representation of the self. This book explores clothing and dressing as significant themes that recur in Duchamp’s life and his work – including his drawings, his fashioning of his body, his readymades, and his curatorial gestures. In considering the material traces of Duchamp’s fashioning of his body and identity, this book makes a highly original contribution to the understanding of his work and the significance of the clothed body in the vanguard of Modernism.

Fashion, Dress and Postpostmodernism

Edited by José Blanco F., Dominican University, USA & Andrew Reilly, University of Hawaii, Manoa, USA Scholars have argued that postmodernism is dead and that we’re entering a new era of altermodernism, digimodernism or postpostmodernism. This book expands on nascent post-postmodernist scholarship to highlight how dress, fashion, and appearance are reflections of this new age. From Vetements to South Asian Muslim fashion, and queer social networking apps to Tom Ford’s films, Fashion, Dress, and Post-postmodernism examines hyper-consumption, mass-production, hypermodern branding, identity, image, subjectivity, and time within the context of postpostmodernism and dress.
