This retrospective pays tribute to a truly distinctive photographer. With an academic training in photography and a professional background in advertising, Nobuyoshi Araki’s subject matter is wide-ranging and incredibly diverse. Blending the careful composition of traditional Japanese culture with his own frenetic energy, Araki’s work is compelling and controversial. Many of his works are erotically charged, yet, with a true artist’s sensibility he brings something original to each composition. Undoubtedly one of the most prolific artists of any age, this portfolio challenges our most fundamental assumptions.
Inspired by the life of Paul Gauguin, The Moon & Sixpence is an intricate exploration of the nature of genius and the singlemindedness it takes. Charles Strickland, a nondescript stockbroker, suddenly leaves his wife and children in search of artistic greatness. As he embarks on a journey that takes him from Paris to Tahiti, Strickland experiences periods of intensive work, shocking callousness, and astonishing indolence. In this stunning portrait of obsession and self-centredness, Maugham asks two fundamental questions: what defines brilliance? And can the price paid by the artist ever be worth it?
Though there may be distinctions between a house and a home, the fact remains that the fundamental ideas of shelter, life and death are intertwined with the architecture of the commonplace in every dwelling, from cave to castle. The house can be a measure of civilization, wealth or, indeed, intelligence; it is a barometer of existence. Depending on the architect and the client, a house can be at the very cutting edge of architecture, casting aside notions of the past in search of a new paradigm; it can accept the rules of urbanism while standing them on their head. It can float in the air or emerge from the depths of the earth. Where factors of cost may limit civic architecture to tried and trusted methods, some houses break all the rules, and help architecture to move forward. This book is not about decoration, nor is it a practical guide to building one s own house. It is, rather, a search that may lead the willing reader from Patagonia in Argentina to the cliffs of Dover Heights, Australia to see some of the most remarkable houses built in the past five years.
The work of Sert is a clear reinterpretation of Mediterranean architecture: the brise-soleil-as a kind of revitalizing of the wall, the building taken into its own self-reflection, turned to the inside as a place of repose and introspection-in short, the patio house. Buildings like Serfs own in Cambridge, the Miro Foundation in Barcelona or the Maeght Foundation in Saint Paul-de-Vence-all of these provide examples of the way Sert profoundly worked these concepts in his architecture. The treatment of light is another fundamental aspect in the architecture Sert developed. The highly characteristic skylights that adorn his pieces are elements that capture the natural light and reflect it indirectly, diffusing it through the buildings interior. Text in English
Leo Tolstoys most personal novel, Anna Karenina scrutinizes fundamental ethical and theological questions through the tragic story of its eponymous heroine. Anna is desperately pursuing a good, moral life, standing for honesty and sincerity. Passion drives her to adultery, and this flies in the face of the corrupt Russian bourgeoisie. Meanwhile, the aristocrat Konstantin Levin is struggling to reconcile reason with passion, espousing a Christian anarchism that Tolstoy himself believed in. Acclaimed by critics and readers alike, Anna Karenina presents a poignant blend of realism and lyricism that makes it one of the most perfect, enduring novels of all time.
Britain has lost the Falklands war, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. In a world not quite like this one, two lovers will be tested beyond their understanding. Machines Like Me occurs in an alternative 1980s London. Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first batch of synthetic humans. With Mirandas assistance, he co-designs Adams personality. This near-perfect human is beautiful, strong and clever - a love triangle soon forms. These three beings will confront a profound moral dilemma. Ian McEwans subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: what makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart? This provocative and thrilling tale warns of the power to invent things beyond our control.
Пернацкий Виктор Иванович The Mirror and the Echo of Universe. Theory Being, Space Time in Philosophical Mater.The quote from Karl Marx taken out to the headline treats a person as a rational being realizing the being as a whole and inexhaustible. Hence - the problem of philosophical knowledge and philosophical perception of the whole as a purely philosophical problem. For its solution the author is developing a theory of being, motion, space and time, relying on modern natural, inter alia, on cosmological perceptions of the world, challenging some of them, including the theory of enlargement of the Universe, recession of galaxies et al. Decision of assigned tasks required author to address to the problems associated with a fundamental question of philosophy, as well as the theory of knowledge, consciousness, nature of the ideal and the mechanisms of spiritual production. Solving these problems in a non-traditional way, especially when you consider that these traditions have become or are strenuously made far from the identified problems neo-postpositivist and postmodern constructions, the author refers to the ancient and more recent origins of classical philosophy. For scientists, professors of philosophy, graduate students.?
An entertaining, informative and utterly depressing global history of an important commodity . . . By alerting readers to the ways that modernitys very origins are entangled with a seemingly benign and delicious substance, How Sugar Corrupted the World raises fundamental questions about our world. Sven Beckert, the Laird Bell professor of American history at Harvard University and the author of Empire of Cotton: A Global History, in the New York Times A brilliant and thought-provoking history of sugar and its ironies Bee Wilson, Wall Street Journal Shocking and revelatory . . . no other product has so changed the world, and no other book reveals the scale of its impact. David Olusoga This study could not be more timely. Laura Sandy, Lecturer in the History of Slavery, University of Liverpool The story of sugar, and of mankinds desire for sweetness in food and drink is a compelling, though confusing story. It is also an historical story. The story of mankinds love of sweetness - the need to consume honey, cane sugar, beet sugar and chemical sweeteners - has important historical origins. To take a simple example, two centuries ago, cane sugar was vital to the burgeoning European domestic and colonial economies. For all its recent origins, todays obesity epidemic - if that is what it is - did not emerge overnight, but instead evolved from a complexity of historical forces which stretch back centuries. We can only fully understand this modern problem, by coming to terms with its genesis and history: and we need to consider the historical relationship between society and sweetness over a long historical span. This book seeks to do just that: to tell the story of how the consumption of sugar - the addition of sugar to food and drink - became a fundamental and increasingly troublesome feature of modern life. Walvins book is the heir to Sidney Mintzs Sweetness and Power, a brilliant sociological account, but now thirty years old. In addition, the problem of sugar, and the consequent intellectual and political debate about the role of sugar, has been totally transformed in the years since that books publication.
