Collecting Picture and Photo Frames introduces the reader to the history of frames and an across-the-board sampling of framing styles from the early 1800s through the 1940s. Beautifully illustrated in over 400 color photographs, this book is the first of its kind to show such variety and magnitude of both wall frames and table top frames in detail and full color. Whether you are an amateur or novice collector of frames, someone who simply appreciates good frames for your pictures, or a student of art and design history, this book will give you insight into the style, beauty, and value of antique frames. Different frame materials are described, along with information on identifying and dating your pieces. A price guide is also given for each item.

Since the inception of photography in the early nineteenth century, photographs have been made, used, collected, and discarded in greatly increasing numbers. Despite the photograph's persistence in daily life, until recently most types of everyday photography have remained unexamined by historians and have been absent from the walls of galleries and museums. In response to this omission, some scholars have begun to consider photography as a "vernacular" practice. This reframing of the history of photography serves as the starting point forIn the Vernacular: Photography of the Everyday.In the Vernacularutilizes the Rodger Kingston Collection-a collection of approximately 4,000 vernacular images including snapshots, wedding photographs, news and advertising images, insurance pictures, family pictures, travel albums, grade-school class portraits, and pin-up photographs-as the rich visual source material for its exploration of photography of the everyday.The publication includes 75 full-colour reproductions organized thematically, as well as an introductory essay by Ross Barrett and Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw, plus essays on the vernacular and the Kingston Collection by Bernard L. Herman and Daile Kaplan. The book also includes one of the first comprehensive bibliographies on the subject of vernacular photography.

SBIA, the Brazilian Symposium on Arti?cial Intelligence, is a biennial event intended to be the main forum of the AI community in Brazil. The SBIA 2004 was the 17th issue of the series initiated in 1984. Since 1995 SBIA has been accepting papers written and presented only in English, attracting researchers from all over the world. At that time it also started to have an international program committee, keynote invited speakers, and proceedings published in the Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence (LNAI) series of Springer (SBIA 1995, Vol. 991, SBIA 1996, Vol. 1159, SBIA 1998, Vol. 1515, SBIA 2000, Vol. 1952, SBIA 2002, Vol. 2507). SBIA 2004 was sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It was held from September 29 to October 1 in the city of S ̃ ao Luis, in the northeast of Brazil, together with the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks (SBRN). This followed a trend of joining the AI and ANN communities to make the joint event a very exciting one. In particular, in 2004 these two events were also held togetherwiththeIEEEInternationalWorkshoponMachineLearningandSignal Processing (MMLP), formerly NNLP. The organizationalstructure of SBIA 2004was similar to other international scienti?cconferences.Thebackboneofthe conferencewasthe technicalprogram whichwascomplementedbyinvitedtalks,workshops,etc.onthemainAItopics.

Jede Befassung mit 'Kunst' - sei sie produzierend, rezipierend oder affizierend - kommt an Kunsterfahrung nicht umhin. Das Erleben von Kunst, mithin Kunsterfahrung selbst, steht stets zu Beginn. In ihr sind die konstitutiven Entscheidungen bereits getroffen, ob das Wahrgenommene ein Gefühl, ein Geräusch oder ein Eindruck bleibt, oder ob wir es als 'Kunst' begreifen. Kunst 'existiert' nicht außerhalb eines Beobachters, sondern ist imaginierte Realität eines Beobachters. Eine solche Argumentation zwingt zu einem radikalen Beobachterstandpunkt für jedwede Kunsterfahrung, die nicht mehr traditionsgeflissentlich ergründet: "Was ist Kunst?", sondern: "Wie ist Kunst möglich?". Damit ist ein fundamentaler Perspektivenwechsel gezeitigt vom Werk zum Beobachter, indem man nach den Bedingungen von Kunst fragt: Wie Kunst zur Kunst wird und was Kunst für die Gesellschaft leistet. In dieser Lesart offenbart sich Kunst mit einer zentralen Funktion in der Gesellschaft. Sie überwindet das unüberbrückbar erscheinende Verhältnis von Wahrnehmung und Kommunikation. Wahrnehmung und Kommunikation sind Operationen zweier unterschiedlicher operativ geschlossener Systeme, dem psychischen und dem sozialen System. Sie stehen unverbunden nebeneinander. Kunst aber "macht Wahrnehmung für Kommunikation verfügbar (...). Sie kann Wahrnehmung und Kommunikation integrieren, ohne zu einer Verschmelzung oder Konfusion der Operationen zu führen" (Niklas Luhmann). Dies vermag Kunst, indem sie in der Lage ist, Wahrnehmbares zu inszenieren, mithin dem Beobachter Anlässe für Wahrnehmung anzubieten. Die Autorinnen und Autoren greifen diese Problemstellung offensiv auf und diskutieren sie kritisch unter epistemologischen, differenztheoretischen, ästhetischen sowie diskurshistorischen Aspekten. Dabei konturiert sich Kunstkommunikation nicht als Kommunikation über Kunst, vielmehr als Kommunikation durch Kunst.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

Das erfolgreichste Buch zur Kunst der letzten fünfzig Jahre - jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! Mit seinem legendären Buch ›Sehen. Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt‹ lehrte John Berger uns Anfang der 1970er Jahre, Bilder neu zu sehen. Er analysiert Gemälde nicht isoliert in einer Welt von musealer Ewigkeit, sondern als Gebrauchsmuster der modernen Gesellschaft, die vor allem den weiblichen Körper zur Reklame benutzt. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton
