David Horvitz und Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt trennen Generationen, doch ihre Auffassung von Kunst ist sich sehr nah. Der amerikanische Künstler besuchte sie für Recherchen 2014 in Berlin und entdeckte in ihrem Archiv die "Typewritings" aus den 1970er Jahren. Die Schreibmaschinengrafiken hatte sie für ihre Mail Art benutzt und von Ostberlin in die Welt gesendet. Horvitz sorgte für die Wiederentdeckung von Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldts herausragendem Werk, das auch auf der documenta 14 (2017) gewürdigt wurde. Seit der ersten Begegnung besteht zwischen den beiden ein Austausch, obwohl die 87jährige seit dem Ende der DDR nicht mehr künstlerisch arbeitet. Horvitz lud sie ein, mit einer Einwegkamera ihr Haus und ihren Garten festzuhalten. Im Gegenzug fotografierte er sein Studio in Los Angeles. Jene Schnappschüsse, Gespräche sowie seine textbasierten Aquarelle, wie For Ruth, the sky in los angeles und For Ruth, the wind to you, per Mail Art gesendet und oft nur mit "Ruth - Berlin" adressiert, dokumentieren ihre anhaltende Korrespondenz.For Ruth, the wind to you.

'Why are humans afraid of spiders? With a multi-stranded narrative that traps you as effectively as a silken web, Skitter makes the answer all too clear' DAILY MAIL In the thrilling, nerve-wracking finale of Ezekiel Boone's terrifying Hatching series, the United States goes to war against the queen spiders that threaten to overtake the human race forever. The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come. The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer's theory that we need to kill only the queens? For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it's an easy answer. She's gone as far as she can-more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder - and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don't agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what can be more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves? 'Following directly on the heels of SKITTER (2017), Boone brings his excellent spider-apocalypse thriller to an exciting conclusion . . . The entire series is one to hand to fans of all high-action thrillers, especially for those with a speculative frame by Mira Grant, Jonathan Maberry, and Ben H. Winters. In a landscape where the adventure thriller seems to be dragging, it is clear all we needed were some spiders to revive it' (Booklist (starred review)) 'Big-screen-ready, rip-roaring action' (Publishers Weekly)

The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant v. 28; November ...
199,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In his eighth and final annual message to Congress, Ulysses S. Grant reminded the nation that it was his 'fortune or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training.' The electoral crisis that dominated Grant's last months in office left little room for political error. On November 7, 1876, Democrat Samuel J. Tilden won the popular vote, but Republican Rutherford B. Hayes could claim the presidency by a single electoral vote if he captured all disputed electors from Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Oregon. Uncertainty gave way to deadlock as the crisis deepened. Grant's mail included a steady trickle of anonymous threats. In late January 1877, Grant signed a bill creating an electoral commission to end the dispute. Hayes won all disputed electors and succeeded Grant without incident. Out of the White House, without a settled home, the Grants spent two months visiting family and friends before embarking on their long-planned European tour. On May 17, Grant left Philadelphia aboard the steamer Indiana. When he arrived at Liverpool, crowds thronged the docks and streets to give him a hero's welcome, and Londoners welcomed Grant with similar enthusiasm. In July, the Grants crossed to Belgium, traveled through Germany, and summered in the Swiss Alps and the lakes of northern Italy. Back in Great Britain, they toured Scotland and northern England, then visited daughter Ellen Grant Sartoris at Warsash, the Sartoris country home near Southampton. Grant spent November in Paris, later writing 'no American would stay in Paris if he found himself the only one of his countrymen there.' The Grants wintered in the Mediterranean, sailing down theItalian coast to Sicily, where they spent Christmas, then to Alexandria, and a long trip up the Nile. The party toured the Holy Land, visited Constantinople and Athens, and spent a month in Italy. After another month in Paris, the Grants were off to Holland, Germany, Scand
