Delirium and resistance : activist art and the crisis of capitalism

In the aftermath of the 2016 US elections, Brexit, and a global upsurge of nationalist populism, it is evident that the delirium and the crisis of neoliberal capitalism is now the delirium and crisis of liberal democracy and its culture. And though capitalist crisis does not begin within art, art can reflect and amplify its effects, to positive and negative ends...

Artificial hells : participatory art and the politics of spectatorship

Since the 1990s, critics and curators have broadly accepted the notion that participatory art is the ultimate political art: that by encouraging an audience to take part an artist can promote new emancipatory social relations. Around the world, the champions of this form of expression are numerous, ranging from art historians such as Grant Kester, curators such as Nicolas Bourriaud and Nato Thompson, to performance theorists such as Shannon Jackson...

Duty free art

How can one think of art institutions in an age defined by planetary civil war, growing inequality, and proprietary digital technology? The boundaries of such institutions have grown fuzzy. They extend from a region where the audience is pumped for tweets to a future of “neurocurating,” in which paintings surveil their audience via facial recognition and eye tracking to assess their popularity and to scan for suspicious activity...

Draping : art and craftsmanship in fashion design

'Draping. Art and craftsmanship in fashion design' is a manual on draping or, as it is known in France, moulage. Draping is a three-dimensional design and production technique that generates a considerable degree of freedom. From time immemorial, draping has been a technique frequently used in couture. The current revival of the art of draping is the reason why the Arnhem Academy, whose trademark is production and finishing, decided to publish this book in collaboration with ArtEZ Press. Specialists Annette Duburg and Rixt van der Tol used their extensive collection of practical manuscripts to provide the book with a clear set of instructions for draping. There are only a limited number of people who are still able to teach the art of draping, which makes this manual decidedly indispensable. It opens up an area that functions as an interesting, supplementary design niche within today’s fashion design training.

The primary structures of fabrics : an illustrated classification

Based on years of study of a huge range of fabrics produced by hand or by strictly limited mechanization, its essential strength is its universality. In this monumental work, the structures and the descriptive terms applied to them are clearly presented according to their logical relationships to each other, moving from the simplest to the most complex. The book is divided into three parts: the raw materials of fabric structures (filaments and fabric elements); the fabric structure themselves, whether felted or made from interworked yarns; and structures such as stitches or appliqué.

Art & textiles : fabric as material and concept in modern art from Klimt to the present

Die Digitalisierung der Welt scheint einen Abgleich mit der Hand zu benötigen. Allerorten wird gehäkelt, gestickt, gestrickt und gewebt. Die Grenzlinie zwischen Kunst und Kunsthandwerk scheint zu verwischen. Bereits 1878 beschrieb Gottfried Semper das Textile als Urform der Künste. Wiener Werkstätte und Bauhaus durchbrachen die Schranken, ein entscheidender Impuls für die Meister der Moderne. Faden, Gewebe, Netz und Muster sind gleichzeitig Grundlage, Ergebnis und Ideengeber, greifen auf Malerei, Skulptur, Installations- und Medienkunst über...

Fashion by design

Fashion by Design explores the elements and principles of design as they relate to fashion. By evaluating the best examples from early through contemporary fashion design, students will develop the eye of the fashion designer in order to identify and understand how to manipulate the elements and principles of design. The objective is for design students to use these guidelines not to simply develop an appreciation of aesthetics but to execute an aesthetically pleasing garment design. Each chapter includes hands-on projects with step-by-step instructions related to the element or principle discussed in that chapter. The theory in the book originates from the Bauhaus school of art, while also drawing from sources on aesthetics in the field of clothing and textiles.
