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.

The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America's...
8,95 € *

The New York Times bestseller: "You gotta read this. It is the most exciting book about Pluto you will ever read in your life." —Jon Stewart When the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History reclassified Pluto as an icy comet, the New York Times proclaimed on page one, "Pluto Not a Planet? Only in New York." Immediately, the public, professionals, and press were choosing sides over Pluto's planethood. Pluto is entrenched in our cultural and emotional view of the cosmos, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning author and director of the Rose Center, is on a quest to discover why. He stood at the heart of the controversy over Pluto's demotion, and consequently Plutophiles have freely shared their opinions with him, including endless hate mail from third-graders. With his inimitable wit, Tyson delivers a minihistory of planets, describes the oversized characters of the people who study them, and recounts how America's favorite planet was ousted from the cosmic hub.

Andy Goldsworthy: Touching Nature
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ANDY GOLDSWORTHY: TOUCHING NATURE A new and revised edition of our best-selling book on Andy Goldsworthy. A completely rewritten exploration of the sculptor, updated to include recent works such as Night Path (2002) and Chalk Stones (2003) in Sussex, Three Cairns (2002) on the American East and West coasts, Stone Houses (2004) and Garden of Stones (2003) in Gotham, Passage (2005) in London, and Slate Domes (2005) in Washington, DC. Known as a 'land', 'earth', 'nature' or 'environmental' artist, Andy Goldsworthy works with(in) nature. He uses natural materials in natural shapes and forms often set in natural contexts (but also in cities, towns, parks, sculpture parks, and many spaces created or adapted by people). FROM THE INTRODUCTION In the 1990s, Andy Goldsworthy's art began to rise in popularity: the glossy coffee table book Stone became a bestseller (bear in mind it was then priced at $55). In 1994 Goldsworthy took over some West End galleries with a large one-man show. In 1995 he was part of an intriguing group show at the British Museum (Time Machine), creating sculptures, along with Richard Deacon, Peter Randall-Page and others, in amongst the monumental statuary of the famous Egyptian Hall. Also in 1995, Goldsworthy designed a set of Royal Mail stamps (and again in 2003). Digne in France became an increasingly important Goldsworthy location, with shows in 1995, 1997 and 2000). Prestigious commissions occurred in the US from the mid-1990s onwards. For instance: the giant Wall at Storm King Art Center in 1998; the Three Cairns on the East and West Coasts and Iowa in 2001-02; the 'stone houses' at the Metropolitan Museum in Gotham in 2004; the monument to the Holocaust (also in New York) in 2003; and the slate domes in Washington, DC in 2005. Goldsworthy continues to work in countries such as Japan, Australia, Holland, Canada, North America and France (with France and the US becoming primary centres of Goldsworthy activity), but his home ground of Dumfriesshire in Scotland remains (at) the heart of his work. AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY William Malpas has written books on Richard Long and land art, as well as three books on Andy Goldsworthy, including Andy Goldsworthy In America. Malpas's books on Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy are the only full-length studies of these artists available. Fully illustrated, with a revised text. Bibliography and notes. 312pp. ISBN 9781861714404. www.crmoon.com

Park City, Tennessee
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Park City was incorporated in 1907 as a Tennessee municipality. From its inception in the 1890s, Park City became a melting pot of Greek, Swiss, Jewish, African American, German, Italian, and Scotch-Irish entrepreneurs of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Cal Johnson, a former slave and resident of Park City, became one of the wealthiest men in Tennessee. Johnson invested in race horses, taverns, and real estate, and he operated a race track in Burlington on the eastern edge of Park City. The half-mile track is still intact as a city street known as Speedway Circle. Today, Park City is a virtual museum of Victorian homes designed by mail-order architect and Park City resident George F. Barber. The residence he designed and built for himself still stands on Washington Avenue. Other highlights include Park City's pre--'Civil War history and important trade expositions of national significance hosted in Park City from 1910 to 1913. In 1917, Park City was annexed into the city of Knoxville, but the community retained its cultural and historical identity for many years around Chilhowee Park. Once a privately owned estate and lake. Chilhowee Park became Park City's social center, welcoming such notable figures as Teddy Roosevelt, William Jennings Bryan, and Louis Armstrong.

Every Stamp Tells a Story
32,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Every stamp and piece of mail tells a story. In fact, each often tells multiple stories, ranging from concept to art design to production to usage, often with tales of politics, history, technology, biography, genealogy, economics, geography, disaster, and triumph. The lens of philately offers a fresh and engaging story of American history, culture, and identity, and it can also help deepen the understanding of world cultures. The William H. Gross Stamp Gallery, opened at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum in September 2013, has many such stories to tell. Chief philately curator Cheryl R. Ganz guides readers through some of the gallery's nearly 20,000 objects that together illustrate the history of our nation's postal operations and postage stamps.

In the sixth of the Minogue series, the troubled son of an Irish-American tycoon is found bludgeoned to death in the trunk of a car at Dublin Airport. There's more at stake here than bad publicity for Ireland's vital tourist industry. The victim's father is the highly influential Irish-American tycoon John Leyne. A confusing account of the victim's itinerary suggests he's travelling with a woman, and staying in lodgings in remote towns and villages. That female companion may be Aoife Hartnett, an archaeologist from the National Museum - but she can't be found. The trail peters out near Irelan'd remote west coast. A pattern to their travels emerges: the route takes in sites where Aoife Hartnett worked. Two of those sites have had thefts in the past five years. Is it a coincidence that one of John Leyne's passions in recent years has been the collection of antiquities? Then, a body is found in a shallow grave near an historical excavation site. Travelling back to his ancestral homeland brought this man not the glory he hoped, but a brutal end. 'Magically, Brady's writing makes it dense and multi-layered… A treasure of a crime novel.' - Toronto Star 'Brady's sixth novel is his best. Melodic, densely plotted, taking us from the Stone Age to New Age, Brady has a great eye for detail. Save it to savour.' - Globe and Mail (Canada)
