RESTORING WILLIAMSBURG

Written by Lounsbury, Carl R
Today best known as the world’s largest “living history” museum, Williamsburg was the capital of the colony of Virginia in the 1700s and the setting for key debates leading to the American Revolution. Inspired by growing interest in America’s colonial heritage, W. A. R. Goodwin, supported by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., initiated a major restoration in the 1920s and 1930s that has allowed visitors to see how Williamsburg looked in the 18th century. Restoring Williamsburg expands on Williamsburg Before and After, a now-classic book with more than 200,000 copies in print, offering an updated and nuanced look at the continuing process of restoration. In addition to capturing moments throughout the site’s transformation, the book offers important considerations about modern curatorial practices and changing approaches to historic preservation. Lavishly illustrated with more than 350 photographs, watercolors, sketches, maps, and other illustrations, Restoring Williamsburg features new images from both before and after the restoration. This is an important contribution not only to architectural history and restoration practices but also to our understanding of the town that continues to inspire Americans to think about their history.

CHANGEMAKERS

Written by Annemartine van Kesteren
"A new generation of designers has emerged which thinks beyond designing products. Fascinated by the faults in our social system, production system and the ecosystem, they employ design to tackle the big problems of our time. Designers are uniquely equipped to visualise alternatives and to harness technological innovations to answer social needs.

INCOMPLETE WRITINGS OF MARK DION - SELECTED INTERVIEWS, FRAGMENTS AND MISCELLANY

Written by Mark Dion
Mark Dion is a prominent pioneer of environmental and ecological art. As a visual artist, he appropriates scientific methods of fieldwork, collecting, ordering, and exhibiting objects. He reflects on the visual representation of nature, engages in institutional critique, contributes to postcolonial discourse, and bears witness to the devastating impact of humankind on our natural environment. Nearly a hundred illustrated texts by Dion and interviews with the artist from the mid-1980s to the present are published in this book. His writings are characterized by curiosity, directness, and intellectual versatility. Often polemical and mildly ironic, they emphasize the urgency of his work.
