Abstract

À partir des croquis et relevés effectués lors de ses séjours en Égypte, au Moyen-Orient, en Italie et en Grèce, Jules Bourgoin a engagé une enquête obstinée, itérative et inquiète visant à pénétrer la syntaxe formelle qui régit l’infinie variété des compositions ornementales, dont témoignent ses nombreuses publications, des Arts arabes (1868-1873) à La Graphique (1905). L’itinéraire de ce dessinateur d’exception, scientifique autodidacte, est restitué depuis ses études comme élève architecte à l’École des beaux-arts jusqu’à la conception, au seuil du XXe siècle, d’un système didactique capable de réduire tout arrangement ornemental à un système de notations abstraites. Les nombreux dessins, notes et manuscrits laissés par Bourgoin permettent d’appréhender sa méthode de travail, la collecte de matériaux étudiés in situ étant complétée par une investigation dans les livres et les musées ou dans les collections d’art extrême-oriental à Paris. Ils documentent également un chantier intellectuel particulièrement ambitieux qui, partant d’une critique radicale des doctrines dominantes prônant l’alliance de l’art et de l’industrie, envisage la fondation d’une discipline spécifique capable d’adosser tant l’analyse que la création dans les arts techniques. Bien que menées par un chercheur relativement solitaire, en marge des institutions académiques et des cercles artistiques, les recherches de Bourgoin n’en éclairent pas moins un vaste horizon de théories et de pratiques qui concernent tant l’étude des arts de l’Islam que les pédagogies du dessin et de la composition. Nourri d’une culture scientifique et philosophique approfondie, de l’épistémologie mathématique à la botanique, de la cristallographie à la linguistique, son projet d’une morphologie pour les arts d’ornement, mal compris en son temps, trouve des résurgences inattendues au siècle suivant. Première monographie consacrée à l’étude de cet œuvre complexe, l’ouvrage offre l’originalité de l’éclairer au prisme de différentes disciplines : historiens de l’art et de l’architecture, spécialistes des arts de l’Islam et de l’Extrême-Orient, égyptologues, mais aussi historiens des sciences croisent leurs analyses sur un corpus graphique et théorique hors du commun.

Abstract

Alfred Beit (1853-1906) has been called a financial genius. When he went to South Africa in 1875, no one could imagine that the son of converted Hamburg Jews would soon become one of the richest men of his time - thanks to the diamonds of Kimberley and the gold of the Witwatersrand.As a co-founder of De Beers Ltd. and close friend of Cecil Rhodes, the charismatic promoter of British imperialism in southern Africa, Alfred Beit became one of the colonial fathers of Rhodesia. A British subject from 1898, he tried to mediate politically in the conflicts that developed between Germany and Britain with their respective empires, but failed to achieve a reconciliation between the two powers.Alfred Beit was himself a very prominent art collector and throughout his career he generously supported countless nonprofit-making institutions. TheHamburg Scientific Foundation itself owes its founding to one of his major donations. Beit's will passed on his wealth to a trust, which has financed development aid projects since 1906.This is the first comprehensive biography of this outstanding businessman, art collector and internationally active philanthropist.

Abstract

What do The Age of Innocence, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Sex and the City have in common? Strong women ahead of their time! Being part of New York’s middle and upper class, Ellen Olenska, Holly Golightly and Carrie Bradshaw & Co. cherish their otherness and strive for personal freedom and gender equality, thereby trying to combine traditional longings and modern beliefs. However, though situated in different decades of the last century, several obstacles are put in their ways because of their independent and self-confident lifestyles which, eventually, cannot all be overcome. From True Womanhood to the “feminine mystique” to the vast array of new gained liberties and life choices at the end of the last millennium, Janina Corda examines the developing images of women and their depiction in the literature and culture of America’s 20th century.

Abstract

Throughout the literature of creative learning, many assumptions and even stereotypes about the artists’ creativity are nurtured, often according to myths going back to the Romanticism. The authors have been investigating and describing outstanding artists’ creativity and learning/working processes, asking the question: how do artists create, learn, and organise their work? This book explores these questions by means of original empirical data (interviews with 22 artists) and theoretical research in the field of the arts and creativity from a learning perspective. Findings shed an original light on how artists learn and create, and how their creative learning and change processes come about, for instance when facilitating and leading creative processes.

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

In place of the entanglement of person and work that so strongly marks the artistic work of Andy Warhol, and settles it in the usual Pop Art context, Mèlanie-Chantal Deiss locates it within the cultural context of America's post-war period. Viewed from this perspective, Warhol's work - which tends to be classified as superficial and ahistorical – exhibits unexpectedly serious engagements with concerns of the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout his image series, expressive, somewhat ambivalent narrative strands from America's post-war period unfurl, which transmit a concrete image, as a kind of written historical document. Warhol's visualized narration ultimately culminates in a cultural critique, which treats America not just as a stage of images, but also as site of contemplation of a cultural imaginary, in which art can critically and productively intervene.

Abstract

Fighting Nature is an insightful analysis of the historical legacy of 19th century colonialism, war, animal acquisition and transportation. This legacy of entrenched beliefs about the human right to exploit other animal species is yet to be defeated. Throughout the 19th century animals were integrated into staged scenarios of confrontation, ranging from lion acts in small cages to large-scale re-enactments of war. Initially presenting a handful of exotic animals, travelling menageries grew to contain multiple species in their thousands. These 19th-century menageries entrenched beliefs about the human right to exploit nature through war-like practices against other animal species. Animal shows became a stimulus for antisocial behaviour as locals taunted animals, caused fights, and even turned into violent mobs. Human societal problems were difficult to separate from issues of cruelty to animals.
