Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shore's legendary "Uncommon Places" has influenced more than a generation of photographers. Shore was among the first artists to take color beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, and his large-format color work on the American vernacular landscape inaugurated a vital photographic tradition. "Uncommon Places: The Complete Works," published by Aperture in 2005, presented a definitive collection of the landmark series, and in the span of a decade has become a contemporary classic. Now, for this lushly produced reissue, the artist has added nearly 20 rediscovered images and a statement explaining what it means to expand a classic series. Like Robert Frank and Walker Evans before him, Shore discovered a hitherto unarticulated vision of America via highway and camera. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise systems of gestures in composition and light through which a hotel bedroom or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance. An essay by critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology and elucidate his roots in Pop and Conceptual art. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shore's earlier series "American Surfaces" and "Amarillo: Tall in Texas." At age 14 Stephen Shore (born 1947) had his work purchased by Edward Steichen for The Museum of Modern Art, New York. At 17 Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971 at the age of 23 he became the first living photographer since Alfred Stieglitz 40 years earlier to have a one-man show at the Met. He has had numerous one-man shows, among others at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and The Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1982 he has been Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.

Der neue Psychothriller von Sebastian Fitzek! Seit die junge Psychiaterin Emma Stein in einem Hotelzimmer vergewaltigt wurde, verlässt sie das Haus nicht mehr. Sie war das dritte Opfer eines Psychopathen, den die Presse den »Friseur« nennt – weil er den misshandelten Frauen die Haare vom Kopf schert, bevor er sie ermordet. Emma, die als Einzige mit dem Leben davonkam, fürchtet, der »Friseur« könnte sie erneut heimsuchen, um seine grauenhafte Tat zu vollenden. In ihrer Paranoia glaubt sie in jedem Mann ihren Peiniger wiederzuerkennen, dabei hat sie den Täter nie zu Gesicht bekommen. Nur in ihrem kleinen Haus am Rande des Berliner Grunewalds fühlt sie sich noch sicher – bis der Postbote sie eines Tages bittet, ein Paket für ihren Nachbarn anzunehmen. Einen Mann, dessen Namen sie nicht kennt und den sie noch nie gesehen hat, obwohl sie schon seit Jahren in ihrer Straße lebt ...

Since early in its history, photography has been used by a diversity of travellers, whose collected photographs have been compiled into albums. But Photographic Travel as a genre of art did not appear before the second half of the twentieth century, and had a singular fate and fortune in the US as well as in Europe. The initial objective of some itinerant photographers is to make a book; their shooting practice is conditioned by this objective, as well as their travel experience. Their books – designed as one coherent hole – refer to their wandering experience, even though their stories are never completely free from fiction. In these books, their travels are converged, and their subjectivity is revealed. It is is therefore relevant to call such books made of photographies, and possibly words about the travel experience, Photographic Travel books (comparably to Travel books). Danièle Méaux has tackled the task of characterizing this genre.

American Democracy and the Pursuit of Equality

This collection assembles some of the country s foremost social scientists in one volume. It contains diverse investigations of metropolitan transformation, recent education policy, the (in)justice of disaster relief, the politics of aesthetics and design, immigration, the mass media, social movements, and the practice of social science itself, among others. Whatever their subjects, the writers investigate the promise and constraints of democratic practice in a time of disturbing growth in inequality and political disempowerment. Although they at times differ from one another, more often, they challenge popular received wisdom on a number of these topics. Cumulatively, the volume amounts to a critical sociological excavation of the United States from its leading social critics that will prove useful to specialists and general readers alike."

Insgesamt 26 785 Autokilometer hätten Hoepker und Winter zurückgelegt, so Chefredakteur Mahnke, der im Editorial zu Heft 8/1964 den USA-kritischen Tenor der Serie insgesamt vorwegnahm: "Sie sahen weit hinter die Wolkenkratzer von Manhattan, deren eindrucksvolle Silhouette von vielen Europäern immer noch für typisch amerikanisch gehalten wird. Und sie fanden abseits des Postkarten-Amerikas einige Wahrheiten, von denen ich denke, dass es gut ist, wenn wir sie zur Kenntnis nehmen. Es sind ein paar schockierende Wahrheiten darunter, und der legendäre American way of life sieht im Lichte dieser Wahrheiten nicht mehr ganz so sieghaft strahlend aus, wie man ihn sich im allgemeinen vorstellt.

Conditions for Contemporary Architecture

The conditions in which present-day architecture is produced are partly local and singular and partly global and universal. Understanding contemporary architecture means understanding all of these aspects. What are the pivotal themes? Gert Wingårdh and Rasmus Wærn, Sweden’s most active architect and its best-known architecture critic, asked themselves this question and made a selection of approximately fifty terms and concepts, including Branding, Collaborators, Corporate, Desire, Future, Everyday, Ornament, and Wheelchair. The result is a very special dictionary with humorous illustrations and original articles by interesting protagonists such as Denise Scott Brown, Kenneth Frampton, Massimiliano Fuksas, Hans Ibelings, Peter Blundell Jones, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Juhani Pallasmaa, Joseph Rykwert, Jaime Salazar, Axel Sowa, and Wilfried Wang. A special highlight is the text by Nobel laureate Ohran Pamuk. Die Voraussetzungen, unter welchen heutige Architektur entsteht, sind teils lokal und einmalig bedingt, teils sind sie von globaler und allgemeingültiger Natur. Zeitgenössische Architektur verstehen heisst, all diese Aspekte verstehen. Welches sind dabei die entscheidenden Themen? Gert Wingårdh und Rasmus Wærn, Schwedens aktivster Architekt beziehungsweise bekanntester Architekturkritiker, haben sich diese Frage gestellt und eine kritische Auswahl von rund 50 Begriffen getroffen, etwa Branding, Collaborators, Corporate, Desire, Future, Everyday, Ornament, Wheelchair. Dadurch ist ein ganz spezielles, witzig illustriertes Begriffs-Wörterbuch entstanden, mit Originalbeiträgen von so interessanten Protagonisten wie etwa Denise Scott Brown, Massimiliano Fuksas, Hans Ibelings, Peter Blundell Jones, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Juhani Pallasmaa, Joseph Rykwert, Jaime Salazar, Axel Sowa, Wilfried Wang; ein besonderes Highlight ist der Text von Nobelpreisträger Orhan Pamuk.
