Ajtón lakattal : zeneszerzés a Kádár-kori Magyarországon : 1956-1989

E monográfia az első olyan összefoglaló munka, amely szisztematikusan vizsgálja és értékeli az 1956-től 1989-ig tartó Kádár-korszak teljes zeneszerzői termését. Dalos Anna kötete elsősorban azt kívánja bemutatni, miképp reflektáltak a különböző generációkhoz tartozó magyar zeneszerzők a kortárs nyugat-európai, illetve észak-amerikai zeneszerzői technikákra, miképpen igyekeztek új zenei tapasztalataikat beépíteni saját életművükbe és miképpen gondolkodtak a modern zenéről és általában véve a zeneszerzésről. A munka a repertoár-kutatás műfajába tartozik, azonban messze túllép e műfajon, amennyiben analitikus megközelítésével egyrészt a zeneszerzők gondolkodását és az alkalmazott technikákat tárja fel, másrészt arra a kérdésre keres választ, hogy a Kádár-kori Magyarországon alkotó komponisták miképpen reagáltak az őket körülvevő mindennapokra, műveik milyen poétikai diskurzusokba épültek be. E diskurzusok vizsgálatába - a művek részletes elemzése mellett - a kortárs zenekritika, illetve a zenetudományi recepció dokumentumainak feldolgozását is bevonja a szerző. A monográfia további célja, hogy meghatározza a magyar zeneszerzés helyét az egyidős nemzetközi kortárs zenei gyakorlatban.

Japonisme and the rise of the modern art movement : the arts of the Meiji period : the Khalili Collection

From the 1860s through to the 1890s the rise of Japonisme and the Art Nouveau movement meant few could resist the obsession with all things Japanese.
Superbly crafted and often highly decorated Japanese objects – lacquer, metalwork, ceramics, enamels and other decorative items rich in new and exotic subject matter – stimulated and inspired Western artists and craftsmen to produce their own works. Arts of the Meiji period (1868–1912) were displayed at international exhibitions, in the galleries of influential dealers and at fashionable stores in London, Paris and Vienna....

Hito Steyerl : [Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Torino, November 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019]

Visual artist and filmmaker Hito Steyerl (Munich, 1966) is one of the most influential cultural figures of our time.
Steyerl’s works are critical reflections on the digital and contemporary age and focus on the pervasive role of technology and the circulation of images in the globalized world. Her installations, which encompass film and visual
art, are immersive architectural environments that seek to establish the way in which technology and Artificial Intelligence shape reality and how it is experienced.
This catalogue accompanies the exhibition The City of Broken Windows at Castello di Rivoli and features previously unpublished essays by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marianna Vecellio, the exhibition’s curators, and by
the feminist art historian Griselda Pollock. It also contains two new texts by the artist titled The City of Broken Windows (2018) and The City of Unbroken Windows (2018), published here for the first time, and her important essay In
Defense of the Poor Image (2009). Richly complemented by an extensive selection of images from the exhibition, the book includes an exhaustive scholarly chronology of the artist’s exhibitions, screenings and lectures and an anthology
of critical essays and interviews from 1998 to the present.

Brass instruments : their history and development

In this readable, well-researched history, a distinguished authority on musical instruments offers a concise survey of the evolution of trumpets, trombones, bugles, cornets, French horns, tubas, and other brass wind instruments. The story begins with such primitive contrivances as bark trumpets, conch shells and perforated animal horns, bronze trumpets used by the ancient Danes and Celts, large Roman horns, and other devices.
During the medieval period, a large number of curved instruments or horns of various shapes and sizes developed, including trumpets, looped horns, the sackbut (forerunner of the trombone) and others, while the Renaissance saw the introduction of the slide trumpet. In the nineteenth century, the advent of valved instruments ushered in yet another new era.
In this extensively revised and updated edition, Mr. Baines documents the various states of the evolution of brass instruments with immense learning and a wealth of detail. The text is supplemented by over 140 black-and-white illustrations as well as 48 music examples. The result is a scholarly yet accessible account that remains an indispensable resource for any brass player or music historian.

Education for socially engaged art : a materials and techniques handbook

"For too long Social Practice has been the notoriously flimsy flipside of market-based contemporary art: a world of hand-wringing practitioners easily satisfied with the feeling of 'doing good' in a community, and unaware that their quasi-activist, anti-formalist positions in fact have a long artistic heritage and can be critically dissected using the tools of art and theatre history. Helguera's spunky primer promises to offer a much-needed critical compass for those adrift in the expanded social field." -Claire Bishop, Professor of Contemporary Art and Exhibition History, CUNY, and author of Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship "This is an extremely timely and thoughtful reference book. Drawn from empirical and extensive experience and research, it provides a curriculum and framework for thinking about the complexity of socially engaged practices. Locating the methodologies of this work in between disciplines, Helguera draws on histories of performance, pedagogy, sociology, ethnography, linguistics, community and public practices. Rather than propose a system he exposes the temporalities necessary to make these situations possible and resonant. This is a tool that will allow us to consider the difficulties of making socially engaged art and move closer to finding a language through which we can represent and discuss its impact." -Sally Tallant, Artistic Director, Liverpool Biennial "Helguera has produced a highly readable book that absolutely needs to be in the back pocket of anyone interested in teaching or learning about socially engaged art" -Tom Finkelpearl, Director of the Queens Museum, New York, and author of Dialogues in Public Art

Art and contemporary critical practice : reinventing institutional critique

‘Institutional critique’ is best known through the critical practice that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s by artists who presented radical challenges to the museum and gallery system. Since then it has been pushed in new directions by new generations of artists registering and responding to the global transformations of contemporary life. The essays collected in this volume explore this legacy and develop the models of institutional critique in ways that go well beyond the field of art. Interrogating the shifting relations between ‘institutions’ and ‘critique’, the contributors to this volume analyze the past and present of institutional critique and propose lines of future development. Engaging with the work of philosophers and political theorists such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Paolo Virno and others, these essays reflect on the mutual enrichments between critical art practices and social movements and elaborate the conditions for politicized critical practice in the twenty-first century.

Conversation pieces : community and communication in modern art

Some of the most innovative art of the past decade has been created far outside conventional galleries and museums. In a parking garage in Oakland, California; on a pleasure boat on the Lake of Zurich in Switzerland; at a public market in Chiang Mai, Thailand—artists operating at the intersection of art and cultural activism have been developing new forms of collaboration with diverse audiences and communities. Their projects have addressed such issues as political conflict in Northern Ireland, gang violence on Chicago's West Side, and the problems of sex workers in Switzerland. Provocative, accessible, and engaging, this book, one of the first full-length studies on the topic, situates these socially conscious projects historically, relates them to key issues in contemporary art and art theory, and offers a unique critical framework for understanding them. ..

Socially engaged art after socialism : art and civil society in Central and Eastern Europe

Reclaiming public life from the ideologies of both communist regimes and neoliberalism, their projects have harnessed the politically subversive potential of social relations based on trust, reciprocity and solidarity. Drawing on archival material and exclusive interviews, in this book Izabel Galliera traces the development of socially engaged art from the early 1990s to the present in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania. She demonstrates that, in the early 1990s, projects were primarily created for exhibitions organized and funded by the Soros Centers for Contemporary Art. In the early 2000s, prior to Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania entering into the European Union, EU institutions likewise funded socially-conscious public art in the region. Today, socially engaged art is characterised by the proliferation of independent and often self-funded artists' initiatives in cities such as Sofia, Bucharest and Budapest.Focusing on the relationships between art, social capital and civil society, Galliera employs sociological and political theories to reveal that, while social capital is generally considered a mechanism of exclusion in the West, in post-socialist contexts it has been leveraged by artists and curators as a vital means of communication and action.
