Abstract

In his Moving to Sustainable Buildings. Paths to Adopt Green Innovations in Developed Countries, Umberto Berardi explores the transition of the construction sector to sustainable building through the adoption of green innovations. Applying methods ranging from theoretical discussions to interviews and field studies, Berardi describes how organisational models among stakeholders are changing as the sector moves towards a green economy.Berardi’s book should prove valuable to engineers, architects, environment researchers and policy makers alike, as it successfully weaves together different aspects of green building to create a multidimensional matrix through which sustainable architecture can be understood.Umberto Berardi, an assistant professor at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (MA, USA), teaches courses on sustainable construction, architectural engineering systems and building physics. He was awarded an MSc from the Politecnico di Bari, an MSc from the University of Southampton (UK) and a PhD from the Scuola Interpolitecnica in Italy. His research areas are related to building acoustics, sustainable constructions and energy saving technologies for buildings. Berardi is also a passionate pianist and a strong proponent of interdisciplinary cooperation between the arts and engineering.

Abstract

The rapid growth of doctoral-level art education challenges traditional ways of thinking about academic knowledge, and yet, as Danny Butt argues in this book, the creative arts may also represent a positive blueprint for the future of the university. Synthesizing institutional history with aesthetic theory, Artistic Research in the Future Academy reconceptualizes the contemporary crisis in university education toward a valuable renewal of creative research.

Abstract

How to account for the peculiar attraction of certain photos? How to deal with the specific use of images in particular contexts? Monika Schwärzler presents a variety of photographic case studies exploring visual phenomena from the point of view of media analysis as well as from sociological, aesthetic, and psychoanalytic perspectives. The topics range from a new reading of Thomas Struth’s street photographs to CERN photos with their charged rhetoric, from the assault of photographic close-ups to speculations on an anonymous slide collection featuring a woman with an ever-present white handbag. The book is intended for an audience receptive to the analytical appeal of images, prepared to go beyond what can be taken at face value.

Abstract

Was unterscheidet »freie« von »angewandten« Künsten? Diese nicht erst seit der Moderne virulente Frage prägt die Kunstvorstellungen bis heute. Der Band geht dieser die Hierarchie der Künste vorstrukturierenden Gegenüberstellung nach. Es zeigt sich, dass in den Wechselbeziehungen zwischen Kunst und Kunstgewerbe Gattungshierarchien und implizite Geschlechtszuschreibungen nach wie vor eine zentrale Rolle spielen, was auch von zeitgenössischen Künstlerinnen und Künstlern problematisiert wird. Die internationalen Beiträger_innen stellen das Funktionieren der traditionellen Hierarchien zur Diskussion, was zu einer Revision von Kategorien und Klassifikationen der Kunstgeschichte führt. Dies ermöglicht eine Neubewertung nicht nur von künstlerischen/gestalterischen Werken der Moderne bis zur Gegenwart, sondern auch der damit befassten Kunstkritik. Aktuelle künstlerische Strategien erfahren dabei eine besondere Beachtung.

Abstract

What happens when the functional principle of the human ear is translated into the field of nanotechnology, a map depicting epistemological architecture is sketched as a lecture performance, or when researchers from over 25 disciplines critically engage with structures and models? Which new discoveries are brought about through the collaboration between biomorphology and art history, media studies and medicine? And what can the Gestaltung disciplines of design and architecture contribute to this foundational research? This volume gathers together essays from the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung, and, through its focus on the these three eponymous keywords, sheds light on the productivity of these diverse research approaches: from methodological transfers between the individual participating disciplines through to the interdisciplinary drafting of new structures of knowledge and research.

Abstract

»Roman Charity« investigates the iconography of the breastfeeding daughter from the perspective of queer sexuality and erotic maternity. The volume explores the popularity of a topic that appealed to early modern observers for its eroticizing shock value, its ironic take on the concept of Catholic »charity«, and its implied critique of patriarchal power structures. It analyses why early modern viewers found an incestuous, adult breastfeeding scene »good to think with« and aims at expanding and queering our notions of early modern sexuality. Jutta Gisela Sperling discusses the different visual contexts in which »Roman Charity« flourished and reconstructs contemporary horizons of expectation by reference to literary sources, medical practice, and legal culture.

Abstract

In the audience, art and society overlap. It is the place where aesthetic practice becomes public in a society and where political issues in artistic staging become visible and negotiable. This volume poses the question of the aesthetics of the public and the public of the arts. He collects contributions from art history, political philosophy as well as film, theater and media studies and seeks formations of the common in historical and contemporary artistic productions, processes and modes of reception.

Abstract

Der Band versteht Kunst als Ort der Evokation und Transformation von Affekten. Der Affekt ist das, was mich (be)trifft. Wie gelingt es der Kunst, Gefühle hervorzurufen? Worin unterscheiden sich Emotionen und Affekte? Mit welchen Strategien führen uns Kunstwerke in das Spiel um Ergriffenheit und Distanz, um Anziehung und Abstoßung? Die hier versammelten »Affektanalysen« behandeln künstlerische Produktionsprozesse, materielle und temporale Vorgänge medialer (Re)Präsentation sowie affektive Wirkungen auf Rezipienten. Im Fokus stehen Werke u.a. von Einar Schleef, Auguste Rodin, William Henry Fox Talbot, Charles Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Emir Kusturica, Tsai Ming-Liang, Bruce Naumann und Eija-Liisa Ahtila. Mit einer Einleitung von Mieke Bal.

Abstract

Die Künste sind kein überflüssiger Luxus, sondern bilden - zusammen mit den Wissenschaften - das Zentrum der Schule. Künste sind elementare Bestandteile allgemeiner Bildung, sie leisten einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Entwicklung von Kreativität und stärken die Voraussetzungen zum Erwerb fachlicher und fachübergreifender Kompetenzen. In diesem Sinne stellt das Buch dar, wie Künstler wichtige Partner für Schule sein können, wie viel künstlerische Qualität die Schule braucht und wie die Bedingungen für die Künste in der Schule aussehen müssen, damit es zu einer für alle Seiten vorteilhaften Zusammenarbeit kommen kann. Die Kunst der Schule führt zur Schule der Kunst. Sie führt zum Lehrer als Künstler und zur Kunst des Unterrichts.
