ERIC VAN HOVE - FENDUQ

Written by Eelco Van der Lingen
Éric Van Hove (Algerije, 1975) doet onderzoek naar de betekenis van lokale ambachten in een sterk geglobaliseerde wereldeconomie. Hij doet dat door industriële producten te reproduceren samen met ambachtslieden. In het werk van Van Hove komt het lokale en het globale bij elkaar en wordt ambacht in een hedendaagse context geplaatst.

SARPEDON KRATER: THE LIFE AND AFTERLIFE OF A GREEK VASE

Written by Spivey, Nigel
Perhaps the most spectacular of all Greek vases, the Sarpedon krater depicts the body of Sarpedon, a hero of the Trojan War, being carried away to his homeland for burial. It was decorated some 2,500 years ago by Athenian artist Euphronios, and its subsequent history involves tomb raiding, intrigue, duplicity, litigation, international outrage, and possibly even homicide.

JAZZ AGE: AMERICAN STYLE IN THE 1920S

Written by Coffin, Sarah D
Capturing the dynamic pulse of the era’s jazz music, this lavishly illustrated publication explores American taste and style during the golden age of the 1920s. Following the destructive years of the First World War, this flourishing decade marked a rebirth of aesthetic innovation that was cultivated to a great extent by American talent and patronage. Due to an influx of European émigrés to the United States, as well as American enthusiasm for traveling to Europe’s cultural capitals, a reciprocal wave of experimental attitudes began traveling back and forth across the Atlantic, forming a creative vocabulary that mirrored the ecstatic spirit of the times. The Jazz Age showcases developments in design, art, architecture, and technology during the ’20s and early ’30s, and places new emphasis on the United States as a vital part of the emerging marketplace for Art Deco luxury goods. Featuring hundreds of full-color illustrations and essays by two leading historians of decorative arts, this comprehensive catalogue shows how America and the rest of the world worked to establish a new visual representation of modernity.Using jazz as its unifying metaphor, this book offers an exciting look into America's role in the development of Art Deco design during the 1920s.
