Completamente illustrato in bianco e nero con foto di opere e installazioni di Walter De Maria, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Stephan Kaltenbach, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Beuys, Eva Hesse, Michael Heizer, Ger Van Elk, Jannis Kounellis, Lawrence Weiner, Luciano Fabro, Bruce Nauman, Joseph Kosuth, Jan Dibbets, Giovanni Anselmo, Robert Barry, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Dennis Oppenheim, Barry Flanagan, Robert Smithson, Giulio Paolini, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Alighiero Boetti, Keith Sonnier, Giuseppe Penone, Franz Erhard Walther, Hans Haacke, Gilberto Zorio, Robert Morris, Marinus Boezem, Karl Andre, Emilio Prini, Richard Serra, Germano Celant Questo libro non si pone come analisi obbiettiva e globale di un fenomeno artistico o di vita, ma cerca di affiancarsi (all'arte o alla vita), come complice delle mutazioni ed attitudini nello svolgersi del loro divenire quotidiano. Il libro, formato da documenti fotografici e testimonianze scritte, basa i suoi presupposti critici ed editoriali sulla consapevolezza che l'azione critica e la documentazione iconografica forniscono visioni limitate e percezioni parziali del lavoro artistico. Il libro suggerisce al pubblico un modo di partecipare ai fatti artistici, ma non lo impone. Il libro presenta una raccolta di materiale già vecchio. Il libro coagula uno stato fluido ed in continuo divenire che è proprio del lavoro in arte. In questo libro non bisogna riflettersi per cercare un valore unitario e rassicurante, rifiutato immediatamente dagli autori stessi, bisogna piuttosto ricercare in esso il mutamento, la contingenza, la precarietà e l'instabilità del lavoro artistico" (dall'introduzione di Celant).

        The Message: A Gothic Tale of the AI

      (Wiltshire): Compton Press. (1969). First. First edition. Illustrated by Patrick Procktor. Quarto. 13, [1]pp. Stapled illustrated wrappers. A bit of age-toning on the wrappers, near fine. Short story of two men looking for love in the English countryside. Inscribed by Procktor: "Happy Christmas Dickey, Patrick." On the facing page is a full-page pencil drawing by Procktor (very similar to the frontispiece drawing) labeled "Karlie." One hand correction in the text. Procktor was a flamboyant Irish-born painter and member of the Royal Academy who according to one source despite being married "flaunted his homosexuality and dressed exotically." His first exhibition in 1963 was a great success and his reputation was enhanced and resulted in, among other things, his winning of numerous commissions to design sleeves for pop records (his painting "The Guardian Readers" is the cover of Elton John's album "Blue Moves"). His circle included David Hockney and Francis Bacon, among others. Several photographs of Procktor by Cecil Beaton hang in the National Portrait Gallery, as does Procktor's own drawing of Joe Orton. Procktor's drawings sell actively at auction. Rare. OCLC locates a single copy, in Australia. .

        Thin Films on Glass Schott Series on Glass and Glass Ceramics

      Springer. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 432 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 0.5in.This book, entitled Thin Films on Glass, is one of a series reporting on research and development activities on products and processes conducted by the Schott Group. The scientifically founded development of new products and technical pro cesses has traditionally been of vital importance to Schott and has always been performed on a scale determined by the prospects for application of our special glasses. Since the reconstruction of the Schott Glaswerke in Mainz, the scale has increased enormously. The range of expert knowledge required could never have been supplied by Schott alone. It is also a tradition in our company to cultivate collaboration with customers, universities, and research institutes. Publications in numerous technical journals, which since 1969 we have edited to a regular schedule as Forschungsberichte - research reports - describe the results of these cooperations. They contain up-to-date infor mation on various topics for the expert but are not suited as survey material for those whose standpoint is more remote. This is the point where we would like to place our series, to stimulate the exchange of thoughts, so that we can consider from different points of view the possibilities offered by those incredibly versatile materials, glass and glass ceramics. We would like to share the knowledge won through our research and development at Schott in cooperation with the users of our materials with scientists and engineers, interested customers and friends, and with the employees of our firm. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
