This beautiful, hefty catalogue of the most important works from one of the world's finest collections of Minimal, Arte Povera and Conceptual art includes work by Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Marcel Broedthaers, Hanne Darboven, Gilbert & George, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Robert Smithson and Lawrence Weiner, among others. In her essay, the esteemed independent curator and art historian Anne Rorimer writes, "Such is the breadth and depth of the Herbert Collection that an entire book on the art of the 1960s and 1970s could be written based on the many exemplary works included in it. As a group, works in the collection point to the revolutionary activity occurring at a time when long-held conventions associated with painting and sculpture were being questioned or overturned in the interest of aesthetic renewal. Each work, separately, speaks volumes about innovations in art production labeled by terms such as Minimal art, Arte Povera or Conceptual art. These terms, although by no means carved in stone, identify shared methods and goals pursued by artists on both sides of the Atlantic during the years leading up to and extending beyond 1968.

Creating Emotionally Intelligent Workspaces

Emotions in the workplace have until recently been seen simply as a distraction. We often think of work as rational, logical and non-emotional. But organisations are waking up to the key role of emotions and affect at work. Emotions influence how we make decisions, how we relate with one another and how we make sense of our surroundings. Whilst organisations are slowly embracing the pivotal role of emotions, designers and managers of workplaces have been struggling to keep up. New insights from hard sciences such as neuropsychology are presenting a radically different interpretation of emotions. Yet workplace designers and facilities managers still rely on measuring non-specific states such as satisfaction and stress. In this book we attempt to capture modern-day interpretations of emotion, looking at emotion in terms of transactions and processes rather than simple cause and effect. We entertain the idea of an ‘emotionally intelligent building’ as an alternative to the much-hyped intelligent building. The assertion is that we should create environments that are emotionally intelligent. Rather than focusing on the aptitudes or shortcomings of individuals at work, we should place closer attention on the office environment. It’s not that we are emotionally disabled – it’s the environment that disables us! The ability of you and me to interpret, control and express emotions may not simply be a result of our own make-up. A radically different outlook considers how our workspace and workplace debilitates or enables our emotional understanding. In the modern workplace there are many innovations that can undermine our emotional intelligence, such poorly implemented hot-desking or lean environments. Contrariwise there are key innovations such as Activity Based Working (ABW) that have the potential to enhance our emotional state. Through a series of unique case studies from around the world, we investigate key concepts that can be used by designers and facilities managers alike. No longer should designers be asked to incorporate emotional elements as intangible un-costed ‘add-ons’. This book provides a shot in the arm for workplace design professionals, pointing to a new way of thinking based on the emotional intelligence of the workplace.

How We Live Now is an inspiring guide to making the most of every square inch of your available space. When the housing market takes a dip, fewer of us move as we just can’t afford it. That’s the time to take a long hard look at your home and work out how to make the most of every room—even every corner. Perhaps you’re trying to carve out more space to accommodate a growing family, or maybe you’re wondering where you can squeeze in a home office, a laundry room, or a kids’ playroom. Whatever your particular needs, in How We Live Now�Rebecca Winward explores ways to make your home work harder for you. She explores open-plan living, opting for more flexible room configurations, and using pockets of “dead space”—under the stairs, in the hallway or in the garden—that have unrecognized potential. Multi-tasking furniture and smart storage both have their role to play, as does versatile lighting. Streamline everyday life with How We Live Now.

James Joyce’s preoccupation with space—be it urban, geographic, stellar, geometrical or optical—is a central and idiosyncratic feature of his work. In Making Space in the Works of James Joyce, some of the most esteemed scholars in Joyce studies have come together to evaluate the perception and mental construction of space, as it is evoked through Joyce’s writing. The aim is to bring together several recent trends of literary research and criticism to bear on the notion of space in its most concrete sense. The essays move dialectically out of an immediate focus on the phenomenological and intra-psychic, into broader and wider meditations on the social, urban and collective. As Joyce’s formal experiments appear the response to the difficulty of enunciating truly the experience of lived space, this eventually leads us to textual and linguistic space. The final contribution evokes the space with which Joyce worked daily, that of his manuscripts—or what he called "paperspace." With essays addressing all of Joyce's major works, this volume is a critical contribution to our understanding of modernism, as well as of the relationship between space, language, and literature.

The novels of Theodor Fontane (1819-1898), Germany's most important Realist, have long been appreciated for the symbolism of their represented worlds. In this study, Michael White examines the significance of space and spatial experience across Fontane's oeuvre, providing analyses of non-fiction prose and less well-known novels, alongside major works and poetry.
