This book is the seventh in the Readings in Conservation series, which gathers and publishes texts that have been influential in the development of thinking about the conservation of cultural heritage. The present volume provides a selection of more than ninety-five texts tracing the development of the conservation of works of art on paper. Comprehensive and thorough, the book relates how paper conservation has responded to the changing place of prints and drawings in society. The readings include a remarkable range of historical selections from texts such as Renaissance printmaker Ugo da Carpi’s sixteenth-century petition to the Venetian senate on his invention of chiaroscuro, Thomas Churchyard’s 1588 essay in verse “A Sparke of Frendship and Warme Goodwill,” and Robert Bell’s 1773 piece “Observations Relative to the Manufacture of Paper and Printed Books in the Province of Pennsylvania.” These are complemented by influential writings by such figures as A. H. Munsell, Walter Benjamin, and Jacques Derrida, along with a generous representation of recent scholarship. Each reading is introduced by short remarks explaining the rationale for its selection and the principal matters covered, and the book is supplemented with a helpful bibliography. This volume is an indispensable tool for museum curators, conservators, and students and teachers of the conservation of works of art on paper.

Grundbegriffe der Architektur

Das Vokabular räumlicher Situationen

Wörterbuch der architektonischen Erfahrung – Wie wir Räume erleben Architektur wird erlebt – mit Intellekt und mit allen Sinnen, in der Bewegung und im Gebrauch. Doch um darüber tatsächlich zutreffend zu reden und zu urteilen, ist eine Klärung der Begriffe nötig, wenn die Schwammigkeit vermieden werden soll, die auf diesem Gebiet oft vorherrscht. Dieses Wörterbuch gibt ein Vokabular an die Hand, das ein Sprechen über Architektur jenseits der Erklärung konstruktiver Zusammenhänge oder der Beschreibung architektonischer Formen ermöglicht, unter der Verwendung geläufiger Begriffe wie „Dach“, „Sockel“, „Wand“ und „Achse“ oder „Proportion“. Es geht darum, das Erleben von Architektur zu beschreiben: Wie trägt sie zum Erleben einer Situation bei? Etwa in der Inszenierung einer Eingangssituation oder mit der Wegeführung durch ein Museum. Von A bis Z, von „Ablesbarkeit“ über „Fenster“, „Kontext“, „Orientierung“, „Patina“, „Raumgefüge“, „Symmetrie“ und „Tektonik“ bis hin zu „Weite“ (und „Enge“) oder „Zentrum“ werden die wichtigsten Begriffe der Architektursprache differenziert und vielschichtig erklärt. Präzise Handskizzen des Autors illustrieren den Text und bilden ein visuelles Gegengewicht zur Erläuterung von insgesamt 139 Stichworten.
