Meeting by Accident: Selected Historical Bindings

Loading...
Julia Miller's second book grew out of the experience of writing Books Will Speak Plain: A Handbook for Identifying and Describing Historical Bindings, now a recognized classic text on the subject. Meeting by Accident: Selected Historical Bindings is a very different sort of book, however. The bindings described in Meeting by Accident all had their initial fascination for Julia as she was researching Books Will Speak Plain, and though she wrote briefly about some of the binding types in that book, she continued to study them and decided to write more about them. Past research and writing has identified, and to a degree defined, many types of binding, and we tend to repeat the ideas and assumptions of past scholars, without question and without exploration. There is still a great deal [...]

Medium Cool

Loading...
The story of the working world and romantic life of a television cameraman is a visceral, lasting cinematic snapshot of the era, climaxing with an extended sequence shot right in the middle of the riots surrounding the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. An inventive commentary on the pleasures and dangers of wielding a camera, Medium Cool is as prescient a political film as Hollywood has ever produced.

Loading...
The book covers the history and memory of the Grupo de Estudios Urbanos (GEU). Founded in 1980 and developed into a privileged interlocutor of the urban and economic policies of the last part of the 20th century, the GEU also should be considered as a key episode in the necessary enlargement the battle for civil rights. In this sense, to revisit GEU not only means to account for recent history, but also to discuss the present and lay solid foundations for the future.

Paulo Mendes DA Rocha: Entre Ideas y Dibujos

Loading...
This book revolves around the drawings and scale models especially selected by architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, who was conferred the degree of Doctorate Honoris Causa by the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in 2009. The personal selection done by PMdR resulted in a publishing project that included the participation of a group of academics from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina convened so that, by means of short texts, freely elaborated their perspective on those drawings. The book is, therefore, the result of a collective work whose purpose is to think the architecture from its most common resources: drawing and scale model. PMdR has also contributed with a text specially elaborated for this publication.

Turn Your F^*king Head: Deborah Hay's Solo Performance Commissioning Project

Loading...
In August 2012, twenty dance artists from eleven countries spent ten days at the Findhorn Community Foundation, Scotland, to learn and be coached in the performance of a solo they had each commissioned from renowned choreographer Deborah Hay. Hay's innovative Solo Performance Commissioning Project (SPCP) instils a transformative and rigorous daily practice that serves to stimulate and enrich each individual's approach to performance and choreography. This process then engenders twenty unique solo adaptations of the work through a period of practice that extends into the months following the project. To mark the moment of the final SPCP in 2012, Independent Dance commissioned videographer Becky Edmunds to document the journey of the group as they learned the solo 'Dynamic'. The result [...]

Designing Culture: The Technological Imagination at Work

Loading...
"The renowned cultural theorist and media designer Anne Balsamo maintains that technology and culture are inseparable; those who engage in technological innovation are designing the cultures of the future. Designing Culture is a call for taking culture seriously in the design and development of innovative technologies. Balsamo contends that the wellspring of technological innovation is the technological imagination, a quality of mind that enables people to think with technology, to transform what is known into what is possible. She describes the technological imagination at work in several multimedia collaborations in which she was involved as a designer or developer. One of these entailed the creation of an interactive documentary for the NGO Forum held in conjunction with the UN Wo [...]

Pioneers of African-American Cinema

Loading...
Among the most fascinating chapters of film history is that of the so-called "race films" that flourished in the 1920s -'40s. Unlike the "black cast" films produced within the Hollywood studio system, these films not only starred African Americans but were funded, written, produced, edited, distributed, and often exhibited by people of color. Entrepreneurial filmmakers built an industry apart from the Hollywood establishment, cultivating visual and narrative styles that were uniquely their own.
