Von der Kunst, die Welt mit anderen Augen zu sehen

Elf Spaziergänge und das Vergnügen der Aufmerksamkeit

Eine charmante Anregung zum bewussteren Hinschauen Alexandra Horowitz, Autorin des New York Times-Bestsellers Was denkt der Hund? (Inside of a Dog), legt nun ein zweites, ebenso kluges, unterhaltsames und überraschendes Sachbuch vor. Von der Kunst, die Welt mit anderen Augen zu sehen öffnet unseren Blick für Dinge, die wir erst sehen, wenn wir uns die Zeit dafür nehmen und wenn wir die Perspektive eines anderen zu unserer eigenen machen. Das Buch verdeutlicht, wie selektiv wir gewöhnlich die Welt wahrnehmen und wie wir sie immer wieder neu entdecken können. [Horowitz], die sich als charmante Begleiterin erweist, nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reihe von wunderbar frischen und erhellenden Spaziergängen mit ihren Experten: einem Geologen, einem Typographen, einer Illustratorin, einem Naturliebhaber, einem Wildtierforscher, einem Stadtsoziologen, einer blinden Frau, einem Arzt, einem Soundtechniker, ihrem Kindergartenkind und ihrem Hund Finn ... Die Seiten klingen und leuchten geradezu und spiegeln die tiefe Begeisterung der Autorin für ihre Arbeit und deren Ergebnisse wieder. USA Today Ein unerwarteter und entspannender Trost für unsere erhitzten Gemüter ... eine erfrischende Hommage an den Lohn des Versuchs, die Welt einmal mit den Augen eines anderen zu sehen. Chicago Tribune _____ In diesem glänzend geschriebenen Werk zeigt uns die Autorin, wie wir das Alltägliche anders sehen können, indem wir – in den Worten von Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – „Kleinigkeiten beachten“. Sie schildert elf Spaziergänge, die sie – meist in ihrer Nachbarschaft in Manhattan – mit Experten verschiedenster Gebiete unternommen hat, darunter einem Stadtsoziologen, einer Künstlerin, einem Geologen, einem Arzt und einem Sounddesigner. Auch mit einem Kind und mit einem Hund geht sie eine Runde um den Block, um herauszufinden, wie diese Wesen die Welt wahrnehmen. Indem sie schildert, was all ihre Begleiter sehen, wie sie es sehen und warum die meisten von uns nicht dieselben Dinge sehen, offenbart sie die erstaunliche Macht unserer Aufmerksamkeit wie auch die psychologisch-neurobiologischen Grundlagen fachkundigen Beobachtens. Versuchen Sie es einmal selbst: Schalten Sie, wenn Sie das nächste Mal zu einem Spaziergang aufbrechen, Ihr Handy aus und seien Sie einmal ganz in der realen Welt, in der man Schatten hören kann, in der Fremde mithilfe von Geometrie miteinander kommunizieren, während sie aufeinander zugehen, in der Haltung Bescheidenheit ausdrücken und in der sich unter einem Blatt ein winziges Universum verbergen kann – und in der wahrhaftig Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken.

To The City

Urban Photographs of the New Deal

In the 1930s and 1940s, as the United States moved from a rural to an urban nation, the pull of the city was irrepressible. It was so strong that even a photographic mission designed to record the essence of rural America could not help but capture the energy of urbanization too. To the City showcases over 100 photographs from the Farm Security Administration (FSA) project along with extracts from the Works Progress Administration (WPA) guidebooks and oral histories, to convey the detail and dimensions of that transformation. This artfully grouped collection of photographs includes magnificent images by notable photographers Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and Gordon Parks, among many others. Foulkes organizes this history of Americana into five themes: Intersection; Traffic; High Life and Low Life; The City in the Country; and Citizens to illuminate the changes in habits, landscapes, and aspirations that the march to cities encompassed. As the rural past holds symbolic sway and the suburb presents demographic force, the urban portion of our history—why and how cities have been a destination for hope—recedes from view. To the City is a thoughtful, engaging reminder.
