Artist's Body


Artist’s Body


$24.95


The Artist’s Body is part of Phaidon’s Themes & Movements series, a group of groundbreaking sourcebooks on the prevailing art tendencies of our times. Each Themes & Movement book includes a complete overview of the given theme, situating individual artists’ works in the context of modern art. The documents include artists’ statements, interviews, manifestos, project notes, reviews and articles by key critics, and parallel texts from other cultural, philosophical, and literary sources. Each book includes an introductory essay charting the genealogy of the theme or movement, as well as approximately 250 plates of artworks, including rarely published installation shots and preliminary drawings. Finally, each book includes biographies of all of the artists and authors involved, as well as a comprehensive bibliography. They are intended for uninitiated readers and scholars alike. The Artist’s Body traces artists’ increasing use of their bodies as subject and actual material of their artworks. It charts the rise of new forms of expression such as Body Art, Happenings, Performance Art, and Live Art. Over 250 images bring together the largely untold history of these often controversial artworks-the first telling of its kind. A survey by Amelia Jones, an authority on Body and Performance Art, shows how these works uniquely inform us about the social and cultural upheavals of the last five decades.

Calatrava


Calatrava


$14.99


Feats of design and engineering: The work of an unparalleled architectural engineerSantiago Calatrava is not only one of the world’s most prominent architects, but is also an engineer, sculptor, and painter. His reputation as an unparalleled architectural engineer was cemented with his numerous bridges for cities around the world. With more recent projects such as the stadium for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and the railway station in Liège, Belgium, he has unarguably made his name in Europe and continues to look further ahead. Calatrava’s work is closely related to his own drawings of the human body, and to his sculptures of geometric forms, inspired by the dynamics of movement and tension. Winner of the 2005 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal and the only architect ever to have his work exhibited at both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Calatrava is one of today’s greatest and most innovative architects. This book provides an introduction to and overview of his work to date.

Compulsive Beauty


Compulsive Beauty


$12.37


Surrealism has long been seen as its founder, André Breton, wanted it to be seen: as a movement of love and liberation. In Compulsive Beauty, Foster reads surrealism from its other, darker side: as an art given over to the uncanny, to the compulsion to repeat and the drive toward death. To this end Foster first restages the difficult encounter of surrealism with Freudian psychoanalysis, then redefines the crucial categories of surrealism – the marvelous, convulsive beauty, objective chance – in terms of the Freudian uncanny, or the return of familar things made strange by repression. Next, with the art of Giorgio de Chirico, Max Ernst, and Alberto Giacometti in mind, Foster develops a theory of the surrealist image as a working over of a primal fantasy. This leads him finally to propose as a summa of surrealism a body of work often shunted to its margins: the dolls of Hans Bellmer, so many traumatic tableaux that point to difficult connections not only between sadism and masochism butal so between surrealism and fascism. At this point Compulsive Beauty turns to the social dimension of the surrealist uncanny. First Foster reads the surrealist repertoire of automatons and mannequins as a reflection on the uncanny processes of mechanization and commodification. Then he considers the surrealist use of outmoded images as an attempt to work through the historical repression effected by these same processes. In a brief conclusion he discusses the fate of surrealism today ina world become surrealistic. Compulsive Beauty not only offers a deconstructive reading of surrealism, long neglected by Anglo-American art history, it also participatesin a postmodern reconsideration of modernism, the dominant accounts of which have obscured its involvements in desire and trauma, capitalist shock and technological development. Hal Foster is Associate Professor of Art History and Comparative Literature at Cornell University. He is an

Conciencia / Awareness

Un mapa del despertar de la mano de la sabidur?a de Osho. Cuanto m?s consciente se vuelve uno, m?s se recuerda a s? mismo, con m?s cautela act?a, m?s alerta est? m?s heridas empiezan a desaparecer, hay menos brotes de ira, menos odio, menos celos y menos sentimientos posesivos. Un d?a, uno simplemente descubre que todo eso se ha vuelto irrelevante, ha pasado a ser historia antigua, ya no se trata de cuestiones vivas sino de cuestiones muertas. Cuanto m?s consciente se vuelve uno, m?s y m?s heridas se curan y m?s se afianza la salud y la integridad. En esto consiste el milagro de adquirir conciencia: en que todo lo que es err?neo empieza a desvanecerse y todo lo que es correcto empieza a suceder. Individualmente, y como sociedad, la cuesti?n primordial es decidir si preferimos estar dormidos o despiertos, inconscientes o conscientes. Este libro presenta un mapa del despertar de la mano de la sabidur?a de Osho.”English DescriptionUnderlying all meditation techniques, including martial arts-and in fact underlying all great athletic performances-is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives. According to great masters like Lao Tzu or Buddha, most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do. At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness-or awakening, to use another-in extraordinary circumstances. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply-welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone a

Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


$20.37


Between 1890 and 1930, Arts and Crafts architecture proliferat­ed within the Cotswolds. The range and quality of the buildings was exceptional as the region provided the perfect environment for the Movement’s ideals and principles. Arts and Crafts archi­tects relished the robust vernacular precedent as it channeled their ideas and stimulated their imaginations. Its rational basis and dependence on craft skills had lasting value, and it was no coincidence that the most influential aspect of their work was its emphasis on conservation. The Arts and Crafts Movement in the Cotswolds has at­tracted much interest in recent decades, the appeal of the simple life and of traditional values detached from the pres­sures of modern society having as much allure now as it did a century ago. Most of these studies have referred to the work of architects in the region, but the subject has not received the specialist attention it deserves until now. This book examines the impact of the Movement on the Cotswold landscape, on the survival of its building traditions, and on modern attitudes to building conservation. After an introductory section which outlines the Movement’s origins and beliefs and its architectural principles, the main part of the book provides a guide to the general characteristics associated with Arts and Crafts building in the Cotswolds. There are separate chapters on the various types of new commission that were undertaken, from small and large country houses and cottages to village halls and almshouses, not to mention the numerous repair and remodeling jobs on existing buildings that had become derelict following the social and economic up­heavals of industrialization. The final chapter looks at the late flowering of architectural work in the region during the interwar period and beyond, and the legacy of this important body of work at a local and national level.

Bellydance Divas


Bellydance Divas


$13.19


Bellydance is over five thousand years old, with roots extending out through many of the ancient cultures: India, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Persia, and the mid-East. These dances have origin in ritual/tribal dances, temple dances, social dances, exercises to prepare women for childbirth, and dances of victory. Throughout the many countries, cities, towns and villages that have the dance as part of their culture, one can see stylistic nuances in both the dance and costuming that mark the style of that region. This why we chose to present you with several different styles of bellydance in this program: Egyptian Dance, Traditional Cabaret Style, Persian Dance, and Persian Banderi Dance. We have additionally added some modern versions of the dance, which are non-traditional, yet quite popular. Bellydance movements are natural to a women’s muscle and skeletal structure, and even the leg and foot movements are predominantly low-impact. Many people believe that this dance is the first and purest form of dance, since it naturally evolved with civilization, and can be performed by anyone, regardless of their age or body type. This is also why bellydance is so popular as an exercise form. Many of the movements involve isolating different areas of the body, and moving them sinuously in opposition to each other. Other important qualities of bellydance movement involve percussive hip accents, and fast, vibrating movements called Shimmies. An experienced and well-trained bellydancer will combine all these qualities with such mastery that her dance is captivating, leaving her audience amazed at her skill and control.

The book simultaneously challenges and embraces discussions of embodiment from philosophy, geography and psychology, shifting the attention from the dancer, dance and dancing to that of the dynamic architectures of affect, agency and affordance. This paradigmatic shift in thinking the choreographic is brought to life in this collection with writings from artist-scholars and movement practitioners from dance, music, performance, urban studies, circus, interaction design and Parkour.

Aus Wikipedia. Nicht dargestellt. Auszug: A striptease is an erotic or exotic dance in which the performer gradually undresses, usually to music, either partly or completely, in a seductive and sexually suggestive manner. The person who performs a striptease is commonly known as a stripper or exotic dancer. In Western countries, the venues where stripteases are performed on a regular basis are now usually called strip clubs, though they may be performed in venues such as pubs (especially in the UK), theaters and music halls. In addition to night club entertainment, stripping can be a form of sexual play between partners. This can be done as an impromptu event or-perhaps for a special occasion-with elaborate planning involving fantasy wear, music, special lighting, practiced dance moves, and even dance moves that have been previously unpracticed. Striptease involves a slow, sensuous undressing, with the audience urging the stripper to remove more clothing. The stripper may prolong the undressing with delaying tactics such as the wearing of additional clothes or putting clothes or hands in front of just undressed body parts, such as breasts or between the legs. Emphasis is on the act of undressing along with sexually suggestive movement, rather than the state of being undressed.

Bellydance For Core Fitness


Bellydance For Core Fitness


$10.47


Bellydance is an amazing art and one of the world’s oldest fitness disciplines. Bellydance emphasizes movements of the abdomen and pelvis, and is an ideal way to develop deep abdominal core strength. Passed down from mother to daughter, this ancient celebratory dance became the traditional method for imparting body awareness, techniques of posture and movement, both natural and beneficial to the female body, as well as preparation for and recovery from childbirth. In our age of sedentary lifestyles and stress-induced back pain, the bellydance fitness program developed by New York dancer and dance movement researcher, Ayshe, will help you regain and maintain abdominal core awareness and strength, an important step toward healthy and graceful posture, back pain relief, and safer ways to move your body. Bellydance Core Fitness Workout flows from a warmup and isolations that engage your core muscles, to dance combinations and a beautiful dance routine. Every movement in the workout has a name that can be referenced in the tutorial section, where each is carefully explained. The tutorial section contains a 1 hour 40 min. in-depth presentation by Ayshe, explaining the roles of the core muscles in the anatomy of dance movement, and their impact on our health and postural habits. In this program we focus on the abdominal core muscles that span the lower spine, pelvis, and legs. Of main importance are the psoas and iliacus (iliopsoas), the key muscles for structural balance in the human body. The balanced fully-functional psoas is crucial for women’s health. If the psoas is in a state of contraction or atrophy it will affect the reproductive system by restricting blood supply and disrupting the positioning of the organs within the pelvis. Menstrual cramping is often caused by the psoas exerting pressure on the reproductive organs when they are in a state of tenderness. A healthy, released psoas will bring relief from cramping and lower back pain. System Requirements:R
