LUCIUS, CLEMENS VON Henrik Eiben. Henrik Eiben's work engages intensively with color and formal questions, even if in addition to the supposed stringency it is often possible to find a moment of refraction, as well as interaction between the objects and the space and the viewer. The works range from subtle works on paper to large aluminum sculptures, and thus integrate such diverse materials as paper, glass, fabric, or metal. This publication provides a wide-ranging presentation of the work of the Hamburg-based artist for the first time in an extensive, thematically structured image section supplemented by a conversation between Clemens von Lucius and the artist.

EDENS, CATJA; TILMAN, HARM Dutch realist. De Zwarte Hond, Karelse Van der Meer, Architecten. A tendency towards specialisation in the current practice of building is threatening to curtail the architect's influence on building projects. An increasing number of consultants and specialists deal with various aspects of the project, leaving architects to be no more than designers. In many cases, little interaction occurs among the disciplines involved, responsibility for the finished product is fragmented, and the design itself receives scant attention.

PAPARONI, DEMETRIO Eretica. The Transcendent and the Profane in Contemporary Art. Focussing on the concepts of the sacred and spirituality, Heretics looks at themes such as the contrast between good and evil, sacredness, and the relationship between eroticism, sex and death in the production of forty contemporary artists, including Marina Abramovic, Nobuyoshi Araki, Matthew Barney, Vanessa Beecroft, Maurizio Cattelan, Robert Mapplethorpe, Paul McCarthy, Jenny Saville, and Joel-Peter Witkin, to name a few. The theme of the body and the relationship with the transcendent was not new to the art of the twentieth century, but it gained special importance from the 1970s onwards. As illustrated in this volume, in contrast to themes relating to the bionic body (a tendency established in the 1990s with the term post human), some of the more salient themes in contemporary art highlight an increasing desire for transcendence, placing importance on issues such as religious interaction, rebellion against dogma, piety and sacredness. This richly illustrated book includes an anthology of compelling essays by prominent philosophers, anthropologists, authors, and art historians including Jean Baudrillard, George Bataille, Roger Callois, Arthur C. Danto, Vito Mancuso, Michel Maffesoli, Pierre Riches, Julien Ries, Arturo Schwarz, Gore Vidal, Faye Waddleton, and others.

LEE, SANG; ALSAYYAD, NEZAR; Aesthetics of Sustainable Architecture. The purpose of this book is to reveal, explore and further the debate on the aesthetic potentials of sustainable architecture and its practice. This book opens a new area of scholarship and discourse in the design and production of sustainable architecture, one that is based in aesthetics. The chapters in this book have been compiled from architects and scholars working in diverse research and practice areas in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. While they approach the subject matter from different angles, the chapters of the book help clarify the key principles behind environmental concerns and sustainability in architecture. At its very core, Aesthetics of Sustainable Architecture underlines the connection that exists between our approach to the environment and sustainability on one hand, and our approach to certain aesthetic propositions and practices on the other. With contributions by Nezar AlSayyad, Gabriel Arboleda, Vinayak Bharne, Keith Bothwell, John Brennan, David Briggs, Luca Finocciaro, Kenneth Frampton, Marie Antoinette Glaser, Anne Grete Hestnes, Glen Hill, Stefanie Holzheu, Louisa Hutton, Daniel Jauslin, Ralph L.
