Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture series, this book tells the story of PAGON (Progressive Architects Group Oslo Norway) for the first time, offering a definitive account of the group’s projects, buildings, and approach. Despite its individual members achieving international recognition, PAGON has been overlooked in the history of modern architecture. This book demonstrates how PAGON’s architecture constitutes a unique continuity between late 1930s Scandinavian functionalism and the modern movement in the US, and an important transitional stage before the emergence of the better-known neo-avant-garde groups within CIAM and Team 10.

The Social Life of Streets in India

Making the Arctic City

Edited by Sadan Jha, Centre for Social Studies, Surat & Gauri Bharat

Peter Hemmersam, Oslo Centre for Urban and Landscape Studies, Norway

Histories, Contestations and Subjectivities

The History and Future of Urbanism in the Circumpolar North

This volume endeavors to understand the complexities of social dynamics of streets in relation to spatiality and materiality in the Indian milieu. It draws from a diverse body of scholarship and varied disciplinary leanings and engages with three broad strands —historical aspects of streets; physicality or street as a built environment; and social science discourse, mediated through anthropology, urban geography, social theory and urban studies.

Making the Arctic City explores the unwritten history of city-building in the Arctic over the last 100 years. Spanning northern regions of North America, through Greenland, Svalbard to Russia, this is the first book to provide a truly circumpolar account of historical and contemporary architecture and urbanism in the Arctic – and it shows how the Arctic city offers valuable lessons for the post-colonial study of architectural and urban planning history elsewhere.

– Architecture / Art & Visual Culture

Shaping the Surface explores the history of modern British architecture through its ongoing fascination with surface, materiality and decoration. Tracing this continuing sensibility to surface through to the modern era, it explores how and why surface and materiality have featured so heavily in recent architectural tradition, examining the history of British architecture through a selection of key cultural moments and movements. The book serves both as a thematic introduction to modern British architectural history and as a deep critique and meditation on the central importance of surface and materiality for architects, designers, and historians.

The Amsterdam Town Hall in Words and Images Constructing Wonders

Edited by Stijn Bussels, Leiden University, The Netherlands, Caroline van Eck, University of Cambridge, UK & Bram Van Oostveldt, Amsterdam University, The Netherlands This book investigates the splendour and architectural scale of the Amsterdam Town Hall, inaugurated in 1655 and portrayed by contemporaries as the ultimate representation of the power, position, and wonder. To fully understand these mechanisms of power, this book relates the Town Hall to the most impressing buildings of the same period and their visual and textual representations. It provides new international insights in the agency of magnificent buildings, clarifying how artists and writers all over Europe presented buildings as wonders of the world.

Jo van Gogh-Bonger

The Woman who Made Vincent Famous Hans Luijten, The Van Gogh Museum, Netherlands Translated by Lynne Richards Vincent van Gogh’s posthumous success has long been an inexplicable phenomenon of the art world, attributed to the raw power of his paintings alone. This book uncovers the true driving force behind his legacy – his sister-in-law, Jo van Gogh-Bonger: a woman with no knowledge of the art world, but with the vision and dedication to shake it to its core. Based on rich source material, including previously unpublished diaries, documents and letters, Hans Luijten recounts the multifaceted life of this driven woman who made a bold impact in a maledominated world around the turn of the 20th century.

Jeanne Mammen

Art Between Resistance and Conformity in Modern Germany, 1916–1950 Camilla Smith, University of Birmingham, UK What was producing modern art under a dictatorship like as a female artist? Jeanne Mammen’s candid portrayals of Berlin’s thriving nightlife and her watercolours of the genderbending ‘new woman’ are characteristic of Weimar’s glitter. In this fascinating account of Mammen’s withdrawal from public life once the Nazis came into power, Camilla Smith analyses the dissenting artworks created by Mammen in solitude during inner emigration and after the Second World War. She highlights the role of a lost generation of inner émigrés women artists as agents of German modernity and fundamentally rethinks the moral complexities—and visual culture—of inner emigration.

Curating Fascism

Exhibitions and Memory from the Fall of Mussolini to Today Edited by Sharon Hecker, Independent Scholar, Italy & Raffaele Bedarida, The Cooper Union, USA Curating Fascism examines how exhibitions from around the fall of Benito Mussolini’s regime to the present day have shaped collective memory, historical narratives, and political discourse around the Italian ventennio. It explores representations of Italian fascism in exhibitions across the world, highlights blindspots in art history and exhibition practices, and charts how shows on fascism have evolved since the postwar period. Through offering fresh perspectives on the historiography, collective memory, and understanding of Italian fascist art from a contemporary standpoint, Curating Fascism critically reflects upon curatorial strategies and sheds light on the cultural legacy of fascism in the current moment.

Modernist Diaspora

Immigrant Jewish Artists in Paris, 19001945 Richard D. Sonn, University of Arkansas, USA In the years before, during and after the First World War, hundreds of young Jews flocked to Paris. As the École de Paris was the most cosmopolitan artistic movement the world had seen, the neighborhood of Montparnasse became a meeting place for diverse cultures. Now, the paintings of Chagall, Modigliani, Soutine, Delaunay-Terk and Mané-Katz, and the sculptures of Lipchitz, Zadkine, Orloff, and many others, grace the world’s museums. How did Montparnasse’s tolerant, bohemian atmosphere encourage an international style of art in an era of bellicose nationalism, racism, and antisemitism? This book examines how the clash of cultures produced genius.

The Hungarian Avant-Garde and Socialism The Art of the Second Public Sphere Katalin Cseh-Varga, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria The Hungarian Avant-Garde and Socialism investigates artistic strategies of spaces – the artist’s studio, exhibitions, installations, clubs, apartments, cellars, chapels, and shop windows – all of which existed parallel to or were interwoven with the regulated public sphere in Hungary from the beginning of the 1960s to the era immediately following the Kádár regime. Cross-referencing the international tendencies in the art worlds between and beyond the Cold War reality of Blocs, this book demonstrates how mostly non-conformist artists in Hungary reacted to the dependency inherent to the conflicting, contradictory nature of public spheres in the post-totalitarian condition.

Capture Japan

Edited by Anna Grasskamp, University of St Andrews, UK & Anne Gerritsen, University of Warwick, UK

Edited by Marco Bohr, Nottingham Trent University, UK

Asian Ceramic Vessels as Transcultural Enclosures

Visual Culture and the Global Imagination from 1952 to the Present

Largely cut off from the west until the early 19th century, Japan and its complex visual culture has for centuries been an object of fascination, even obsession, in the west. Going beyond the east-west dichotomy this has inevitably created, Capture Japan investigates the formation of visual tropes and how these have contributed to perceptions of Japan in the global imagination. By adopting an interdisciplinary approach, with a multiplicity of perspectives from around the world, Capture Japan goes beyond binarisms to uncover how images can also produce discourses that challenge, subvert or even contradict each other.

The Social Context of James Ensor’s Art Practice

Visioning Israel-Palestine

Susan M. Canning, College of New Rochelle, USA

Edited by Gil Pasternak, De Montfort University, UK

“Vive La Sociale!”

This new study of Ensor’s art focuses on its social discourse and the artist’s interaction with his contemporary milieu. Rather than the alienated and traumatized Expressionist given preference in modern art history, Ensor is presented here as an artist of agency and purpose whose art practice engaged the issues and concerns of middle class Belgian life, society and politics and was informed by the values and class, race and gendered perspectives of his time. This book invites a re-evaluation not only of Ensor’s social context and expressive critique but also his unique contribution to modernist art practice.

Identity, Community and Australian Artists, 1890-1914 Paris, London and Further Afield

Kate R. Robertson, University of Sydney, Australia Between 1890 and 1914, Australian artists were lured abroad by an overwhelming desire to engage with their artistic and social heritage. In Paris – the centre of art – and London – the heart of the Empire – they developed complex social and professional networks. Artists joined ateliers in Paris, the Chelsea Arts Club and artist colonies including St Ives and Étaples. They formed communities based on their Australianness, performing this identity in private and public. Exploration of these artists reveals the fluid nexus of place, travel and relationships in this transitional juncture in British-Australian history.

Few objects are as universal and multi-functional as a jar. This book situates such Asian artefacts in a global context and focuses on the relationships between the filling, emptying and re-filling of jars with a variety of contents through time and space. Containers, storage vessels, urns and other types of Asian jars are shown to be culturally and aesthetically defined crafted goods charged with spiritual meanings and ritual significance. By looking at jars as things in the hands of makers, users and collectors, this book presents these objects as agents of change in cultures of craftsmanship and consumption.

Encounters at the Cultural Boundaries of Conflict

A rigorous study of the part cultural products have played in the duplication of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the book analyses the work they do within Israel-Palestine and in the Jewish and Palestinian diasporas. Contributors largely draw on the legacy of intellectual Edward Said, who saw culture as a participant in the perpetuation of the conflict, as well as a vehicle capable of leading the way towards its just resolution. Considering Israeli and Palestinian films, art installations, street exhibitions, photographs and oral histories, the book expands the conflict’s historical imagination and nurtures suitable cultural conditions to revitalise the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Art, Borders and Belonging On Home and Migration

Edited by Maria Photiou, University of Derby, UK & Marsha Meskimmon, Loughborough University, UK Over recent decades, it has been noted that a growing number of artists are migrating for better job opportunities and to gain experience of different cultures. For some, their migration is a forced displacement caused by political, religious or military confrontations. Art, Borders and Belonging examines how the concepts of ‘home’, ‘migration’ and ‘belonging’ can be used to contextualise contemporary art practices and visual culture. The book is centrally concerned with artists’ experiences of borders and locations (physical and psychological), as well as their narrations of ‘lost’ or existing homeland.

Consuming the Body

Capitalism, Social Media and Commodification Dawn Woolley, Leeds Arts University, UK Consuming the Body examines the relation between people and objects, and the impact that advertisements have to produce and disseminate social values. Author Dawn Woolley’s central argument is that commodity culture turns everything into advertisements. She uses ‘consume’ to mean both purchasing and eating, and examines how consumer culture shapes body ideals and notions of health. Woolley views social networking sites as the commercial space where commodity culture invades our social interactions, and explores these hypotheses through cultural case studies. Using Marxist and psychoanalytic theories, Woolley identifies how the consumer is specifically addressed and compelled to consume.

Transnational Belonging and Female Agency in the Arts

Edited by Basia Sliwinska, NOVA University Lisbon, Portugal & Catherine Dormor, Royal College of Art, UK Current nation-state narratives, rising new nationalisms and right wing politics demand that notions of space and the politics of access to space are reconsidered and renegotiated. The essays in this collection propose that to destabilize the politics of space is to consider afresh ways in which female agency disrupts borders and activates concerns around different forms of belonging, citizenship and transnationalisms. The book explores new visions of belonging and new articulations of place and space from a number of different perspectives, methodologies and geographies, including feminist art histories, art practice and performative activities.

Exhibitions Beyond Boundaries

Transnational Exchanges through Art, Architecture and Design from 1945-1985 Edited by Sarah A. Lichtman, Parsons School of Design, The New School, USA, Harriet Atkinson, University of Brighton, UK & Verity Clarkson, University of Brighton, UK 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.

The Met and the Masses in Postwar America

A Study of the Museum and Popular Art Education Mitchell Frank, Carleton University, Canada The Metropolitan Museum of Art went into business with the Book-of-the-Month Club in 1948, bringing art to a consumer market by sending mail-order publications directly into the homes of subscribers. Using never before published archival material, this book situates this commercial enterprise within the wider context of postwar America, charts both the history of the Met as an educational institution and the rise of art education in modern and contemporary settings, analyses the concurrent transformation of the home into a space that mediated familial privacy and the public sphere, and examines the complex relationship between cultural education to democracy in America.

Dismantling the Patriarchy, Bit by Bit Art, Feminism, and Digital Technology

Judith K. Brodsky, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA Though a flurry of books have emerged in recent years on the absence of women in the digital world, this is the first to look at women and digital technology in the art world. A leading figure in the visual arts, Judith Brodsky documents the work of women and transgender artists who are transforming technology under the impact of feminist theory. She argues that their work differs from the work of male artists, because they are putting forth ideas that can lead to freeing technology from its heteronormative context.

Domesticity Under Siege

Threatened Spaces of the Modern Home Edited by Mark Taylor, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, Georgina Downey, University of Adelaide, Australia & Terry Meade Theories of the domestic stemming from the 19th century have focused on the home as a place of repose and safety. Under this conception, domestic space is positioned as a refuge which gave rise to theories of ‘home as haven’. Organised around four thematic sections, chapters provide approaches to the home which challenge notions of ‘haven’ and reflect major causes that have played an important role in undermining the modern home. Examples and case studies explore hoarding, hauntings, imprisonment, wartime interior art, the Hanover Merzbau and Wolfgang Staudte’s 1946 film Die Mörder sind unter uns (‘The Murderers are Among Us’).

Design and the Social Imagination

Matthew DelSesto, Boston College, USA Matthew DelSesto provides a compelling blueprint for a design practice that enables us to address the social, political and environmental challenges of today. By combining the creative, action-oriented sensibility of design with the reflective, analytical capacities of the social sciences, DelSesto offers models, ideas and strategies for shaping the future. Drawing on the work of C. Wright Mills, Patrick Geddes, Jane Addams and W. E. B. Du Bois, and exploring professional practices and discourses in a wide range of design fields, this book shows us how design and the social sciences can interact in a more productive way.

Designing for Interdependence

Everyday Acts of Design

Martín Ávila, Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design, Sweden

Zoy Anastassakis, Rio de Janeiro State University, Brazil & Marcos Martins, Rio de Janeiro State University, Brazil

A Poetics of Relating

In a time of ecological crisis, it is essential to challenge the dominant design paradigm that centres humanity. Martín Ávila puts forward an ecocentric mode of designing that supports a harmonious relationship between all life forms on our planet. He proposes a design practice that encompasses humans, artificial things and other-than-human species in a 'poetics of relating', which supports the rewilding necessary to maintaining cultural and biological diversity and the stabilization of planetary dynamics. Case studies illustrate the political and ecological implications of an ecocentric paradigm to help us to imagine alternative modes of relating to local environments and cohabitation.

Learning in a Time of Emergency

From 2016-2018, teachers and students at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil found themselves at the center of a crisis. A new rightwing government suspended payment of staff salaries and student scholarships and stopped funding basic maintenance. Through a multitude of voices, this book tells the story of how the university’s design school reacted to the crisis: not with despondency or despair, but by embracing hope and promoting a series of radical teaching experiments. Case histories provide alternatives to conventional forms of design teaching, proving that education can be a site for democracy and the practice of freedom.

Fashion, Society, and the First World War International Perspectives

Edited by Maude Bass-Krueger, Leiden University, the Netherlands, Hayley EdwardsDujardin, Independent Scholar, France & Sophie Kurkdjian, Centre national de la recherche scientifique, France The historiography of the Great War has been significantly renewed in recent years, yet, despite its crucial social, economic, and cultural importance, the role that fashion played in shaping wartime experiences and economies has not yet been addressed.

Presenting a complete rethinking of the study of global fashion history, this book reveals the complex nature of changing fashion when viewed through the lens of time and challenging Eurocentric approaches such as the periodization of style and the arbitrary division of ‘western’ and ‘non-western’ fashion.

From Mantillas to Rosalía Edited by Francisco Fernández de Alba, Wheaton College, USA & Marcela T. Garcés, Siena College, USA From female liberation to Franco’s dictatorship, Spain has experienced significant cultural changes in the 20th and 21st centuries. Simultaneously, its fashion cultures have undergone seismic shifts: women caused uproar by wearing pants in 1911 Madrid, Balenciaga shot to international stardom, and the mantilla took on dual meanings of angel and whore.
