Fragments of Memory The Temple of Solomon in the Dresden Zwinger Edited by Michael Korey Recalling a largely forgotten aspect of Dresden’s art history, this richly illustrated catalog examines the Temple of Solomon—one of the most important and elaborate architectural models ever built. The temple’s exhibit in the Ramparts Pavilion of the Zwinger—Dresden’s palace and major landmark of German baroque architecture—is also explored, along with the complete display of Jewish ritual objects known as the “Juden Cabinet,” quite possibly the world’s first Jewish museum that was made accessible to a broad public and considered one of Dresden’s special attractions until it was disbanded in the 19th century.

Light and Form Modern Architecture and Photography 1927–1950 Ibolya Csengel-Plank, Virág Hajdú, and Pál Ritoók Luxury villas, elegant apartment houses with lifts running in glass tubes, a power plant’s control room that evokes an ancient spacecraft, trendy shop interiors, and streamlined cinemas—all were shot shortly after their completion for the architectural magazine Tér és Forma (Space and Form). This publication was the leading medium for promoting the Modern Movement’s ideas in Hungary between 1928 and 1948, a period in which Hungarian architects created designs ranking among Modernism’s best works worldwide. Today these photographs are invaluable source material, not only documenting buildings but also demonstrating that architectural photographs can be artworks in their own right. Essays by photographic historian Ibolya Csengel-Plank and architectural historians Virág Hajdú and Pál Ritoók explore how the Modern Movement influenced Hungarian architects and how their buildings were photographed. The bulk of the book is devoted to more than 60 examples of architecture and interior design, presented through superb photography, accompanied by short building descriptions and comments on the images, and concluded with an illustrated introduction to key architects, photographers, and cityscapes from 1930s Budapest. Ibolya Csengel-Plank is a photographic historian. Virág Hajdú and Pál Ritoók are both architectural historians.

Embodied Visions: What Does It Mean to Look at a Work of Art? Mit dem Körper sehen: Was bedeutet es, ein Kunstwerk zu betrachten? First Limited Edition Siri Hustvedt Art is not possible without the human capacity of reflective selfconsciousness, and looking at a work of art always partakes of mirroring—one’s sense of another person’s intention in the object. With such a theme at its center, this work shows how the meanings created in the perception of art are not purely cognitive but bodily and creative. Additionally, this instructional work illustrates how perception is an active process that relies heavily on unconscious, learned motor-sensory abilities and a relation to space. Both making and appreciating art would be impossible without imaginative play, and this work explains how one inhabits the real world and occupies another: the land of pretend.

New Alchemy Contemporary Art After Beuys Edited by Melanie Bono Two decades after the death of Joseph Beuys, a new generation of artists have begun to pick up the categories he introduced and have started to develop them for the present day. Among the multitude of references to the œuvre of the Düsseldorf master, the most conspicuous are the “poor”—organic and ephemeral— materials. Associations are also unearthed by the historical and metaphysical aspects of the works as well as the thematization of transformations and processes of formation. In actions and performances, the objects are assigned a significance which also incorporates the space where they are displayed. This reference presents 11 selected artists who, although they have only been known to the public for a few years, have already attracted a high degree of attention. Numerous illustrations, accompanied by brief commentaries, provide insights into their latest works. Melanie Bono is the curator of the LWL-Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Münster.

The Power of Things and the Flow of Cultural Transformations Edited by Lieselotte E. Saurma-Jeltsch and Anja Eisenbeiß Comprising the Heidelberg University lecture series “Asia and Europe in a Global Context,” this study aims to describe the role of artifacts, luxurious objects, and ideas in cultural processes from a wide range of disciplines—including art history, anthropology, literature, and cultural studies. Contending that material artifacts such as monuments, paintings, and manuscripts are signs of cultural self-definition even if they are integrated from far away, the examination explains how these objects have become embedded in the social and economic context as “natural,” indigenous things as well as how culture is in a permanent process of becoming “colonized” by their familiarity. The selected essays demonstrate that this process is based on achieving a certain level of cultural identity, transferring objects into the languages of different contexts. Emphasizing how these forms of transgression demand a subtle process of adaptation, this compilation illustrates how the effort of integration assumes a translation in inner cultural self-understanding, an adaptation of knowledge, and the framing of objects in their new traditional context. Lieselotte E. Saurma-Jeltsch is a professor of medieval art history at the University of Heidelberg. Anja Eisenbeiß is a researcher on the topics of Asia and Europe at the University of Heidelberg.

Ukrainian Artists in Paris 1900–1939 Vita Susak This is the first detailed look at the contribution of artists from the Ukraine to the phenomenon known as the School of Paris. At the same time that Picasso, Modigliani, and Chagall were working in Paris, many artists from Ukraine were also living and creating art there, among them Alexander Archipenko, Mykhailo Boichuk, Sonia Delaunay, Sophia Lewitska, Vladimir Baranoff-Rossiné, and Hannah Orloff. In the early 1920s, they were joined by Oleksa Hryshchenko (Alexis Gritchenko), Mykhailo Andriienko, Vasyl Khmeliuk, and many others—some achieved fame, others are long since forgotten. Ukrainian events that took place in the French capital are discussed against the general background of the School of Paris. A detailed appendix is included, featuring a dictionary of more than 250 Ukrainian artists in Paris as well as a chronology of Ukrainian events in the French capital, both covering the years 1900 to 1939. Vita Susak is curator of the Department of European Art at the Lviv National Art Gallery, Ukraine, and the author of more than 50 publications in the Ukraine, Russia, Poland, France, and Italy.

Magdalena Jetelová Landscape of Transformation Edited by Ulrike Lorenz With the imposing large-scale installation “Landscape of Transformation” the artist Magdalena Jetelová, who was born in the Czech town of Semily in 1946, brings the explosive topic of human rights into the museum. With the help of numerous illustrations, this catalogue documents how Jetelová, in a project specially designed for the Kunsthalle Mannheim, creates an enormous “experience space” that confronts visitors with the relationship between law, injustice, and morality. Now professor of sculpture at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, she works on various levels: alongside optical mises-en-scène with mirrors and black light, the topic of human rights is also addressed through the media of writing and speech. Jetelová, who first attracted attention with out-of-kilter monumental chairs, now creates unusual spatial and perceptual transformations which she initiates with electronic media and through categorical interventions in the architectural environment. Ulrike Lorenz is the director of the Kunsthalle Mannheim.

Young-Jae Lee Forms from the Earth Edited by Andrea Firmenich Capturing an artist who has received a number of prizes as head of an internationally famous pottery workshop, this work represents the talents of Young-Jae Lee. Lee’s work as a potter is rooted in Far Eastern tradition while reflecting modern Western influences. She developed her characteristic language on the basis of the formal principles of the Bauhaus, making her bowls and vessels noteworthy for their perfection of execution and their memorable, discreetly colored glazes and painting. Young-Jae Lee’s works develop their meditative effect both as individual items and also together, interacting with other members of a group. In the Sinclair-Haus, additionally, the artist incorporates works from the ALTANA art collection on the theme of nature into her large-scale mises-en-scène. This catalog uses large-format illustrations to show the resulting interactions—some harmonious, some contrastive and full of tension. Andrea Firmenich is the director of the Cultural Foundation in Bad Homburg. Art, 120 Pages, 8.625 x 11.75 inches 45 Color Photos, Four-color Interior Trade Paper with Double Flaps, $60.00 (CAN $66.95) ISBN: 9783868320299 RIGHTS: US & CA

Dance Techniques 2010 – Tanzplan Germany Edited by Ingo Diehl In 2008, Tanzplan’s Educational Program initiated a research project on important techniques in modern, postmodern, and contemporary dance in which renowned dance institutions in Germany and Europe were invited to take part.

Studies in Afro-Asiatic Comparative Phonology: Consonants Gábor Takács Going beyond standard consonantal reconstruction, this examination unifies various studies drawn from a decade’s worth of etymological research. The study incorporates the extensive lexical materials of the overlooked cognate African branches, concentrating on the elaboration of regular consonantal correspondence among Semitic, Egyptian, Berber, South Cushitic, and West Chadic peoples. Featuring a comparative-historical analysis of the South Cushitic and West Chadic sibilants, pharyngeals, and laryngeals, this consideration is complemented by chapters on new etymological evidence for the affricate origin of certain Proto-Semitic sibilants, a critical appraisal of Otto Rössler’s theory on Egypto-Semitic comparative phonology, and the background of compensatory vowel lengthening in ProtoEast Cushitic.
