Book Description

March 16 2007 Writing Architecture

In this thoughtful collection of essays on the relationship of architecture and the arts, Giuliana Bruno addresses the crucial role that architecture plays in the production of art and the making of public intimacy. As art melts into spatial construction and architecture mobilizes artistic vision, Bruno argues, a new moving space--a screen of vital cultural memory--has come to shape our visual culture.Taking on the central topic of museum culture, Bruno leads the reader on a series of architectural promenades from modernity to our times. Through these "museum walks," she demonstrates how artistic collection has become a culture of recollection, and examines the public space of the pavilion as reinvented in the moving-image art installation of Turner Prize nominees Jane and Louise Wilson. Investigating the intersection of science and art, Bruno looks at our cultural obsession with techniques of imaging and its effect on the privacy of bodies and space. She finds in the work of artist Rebecca Horn a notable combination of the artistic and the scientific that creates an architecture of public intimacy. Considering the role of architecture in contemporary art that refashions our "lived space"--and the work of contemporary artists including Rachel Whiteread, Mona Hatoum, and Guillermo Kuitca--Bruno argues that architecture is used to define the frame of memory, the border of public and private space, and the permeability of exterior and interior space. Architecture, Bruno contends, is not merely a matter of space, but an art of time.

Product Description

Review

"Branden Joseph's strikingly original study of Robert Rauschenberg will also be influential as a remarkable cultural history of the intersection of art, media, and technology in the 1960s. Among the book's great merits are its stunning de-familiarization of a well known artist's work and its impressive reconsideration of the political stakes in the aesthetic practices of the period."--Jonathan Crary, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory, Columbia University



"As this lucid and important new book makes clear, Giuliana Bruno is one of the very few cultural theorists with the intellectual originality and breadth of knowledge to evaluate meaningfully the ongoing reconfiguration of relations between architecture, cinema, and the visual arts." Jonathan Crary , Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory, Columbia University



"Bruno's command of theory helps her unravel what is meaningful in kinds of art that have become pervasive: rambling installation and artwork that takes on architecture. Her writing is distinguished from that of, for instance, ohn Rajchman or Anthony Vidler by her signature personal texture and inventive wordplay." Yasmeen M. Siddiqui Modern Painters



As this lucid and important new book makes clear, Giuliana Bruno is one of the very few cultural theorists with the intellectual originality and breadth of knowledge to evaluate meaningfully the ongoing reconfiguration of relations between architecture, cinema and the visual arts.--Jonathan Crary, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory, Columbia UniversityPlease note: May have arrived too late to appear on book jacket.
