THEOREM: Doctoral research in the visual arts and design: 2018
In 2016 Cambridge School of Art piloted Theorem-what we believe was the first expanded format PhD conference in the UK to include an exhibition of practice-based arts research in conjunction with a one-day symposium. The symposium considers the very tangible realities of both theoretical and practice arts research in a knowledge sharing and peer networking event, while the exhibition provides the opportunity to present practice research under the visual and spatial conditions best suited to its communication. The publication is an opportunity to publish academically for these early-career researchers in a peer-reviewed forum. One of the most gratifying things about producing Theorem is seeing the visible learning that takes place as we move from the symposium/exhibition event to producing the book. Then to receive feedback from participants and supervisors attesting to the benefits they or their students have received from Theorem is even more rewarding. The pathway is not an easy one for some, but those who persevere gain a lot-and often at a time when they need to learn these skills the most in their doctoral progression. For Theorem 2018 we have a record number of fourteen essays for our publication, and a keynote essay from experimental filmmaker, Nina Danino. Nina's essay is particularly interesting, not least because of the discussion she presents comparing the process of making her two films, Jennifer, based in the Discalced Carmelite monastery in Rhonda, Spain, and Sorelle Povere de Santa Chiara filmed within the enclosed community of Clarissians in San Marino. The films are portraits, based on an individual and a community. Nina discussed how the religious space is constructed in both films, while examining the intersection of religion, feminist perspectives and experimental film. There is a wide range of essays on offer in this publication, from using participatory photography to help NEET youths gain self-worth, to using attunement as testimony for a politically disappeared father in Leoni's 1960s Venezuela, to a diagrammatic essay on Afro-Caribbean American identity, to exploring affect theory to express the embodiment of self-harm, to name just a few.

Art Critique - Selected Writings of K. B. Goel
The mapping of the history and trajectory of Indian modern art is a project begun only in recent years and included in it is the recovery of lesser known names and moments from under the shadow of a few dominant ones. Within it, its conscience keeper-art criticism-has borne greater neglect and obscurity. One such voice, heard with considerable attention in its time, was that of the Delhi-based art critic K. B. Goel (1930-2018). Active from the late 1950s to the '90s, his career broadly coincided with the modernist period. Active mainly as a reviewer, Goel also wrote lengthy reflective assessments, and his art writings stand out for an interpretative and often theory-based approach that is quite unique to Indian art criticism. Writing on some of the most definitive artists, movements, and styles of twentieth-century Indian art, he bears the distinction of successfully transitioning from his modernist training to theorize on the earliest postmodern developments in Indian art, such as installation art. This annotated volume seeks to bring together Goel's major writings, accompanied by a critical introduction that draws attention to his frameworks, concerns, and methodologies. It has a foreword by the eminent art critic Geeta Kapur.

Darker Shades: The Racial Other in Early Modern Art
Difference exists; otherness is constructed. This book asks how important Western artists, from Giotto to Titian and Caravaggio, and from Bosch to D rer and Rembrandt, shaped the imaging of non-Western individuals in early modern art. Victor I. Stoichita's nuanced and detailed study examines images of racial otherness during a time of new encounters of the West with different cultures and peoples, such as those with dark skins: Muslims and Jews. Featuring a host of informative illustrations and crossing the disciplines of art history, anthropology, and postcolonial studies, Darker Shades also reconsiders the Western canon's most essential facets: perspective, pictorial narrative, composition, bodily proportion, beauty, color, harmony, and lighting. What room was there for the Other, Stoichita would have us ask, in such a crystalline, unchanging paradigm?

Recipes for the Mind
A chronicle of re-remembering: an artist reflects on art, technology, consumption, near-death experiences, encounters with the wild, psychedelics, time travel, failure and courage. Beginning in 2014, the artist Charles Lindsay began to dream recipes in the crepuscule of the subconscious. In this book, these feverishly written texts, many of which began as bedside jottings, are joined with images: photographs from Lindsay's past, present, and imagined future. Recipes for the Mind offers a chronicle of re-remembering, a more nuanced mashup of chronologies than the linear documentary narratives Lindsay peddled earlier in life as a photojournalist hanging out with shamans in Asia and golf-ball-wielding grizzly bears in Montana. Lindsay's recent work as an artist has pushed (and sometimes torn) the envelope of possibility, creating immersive environments, augmented realities, new chemical and digital life forms that are technically complicated, expensive to produce, and amorphous, requiring dedicated spaces at impossible scales. Recipes for the Mind is a return to words, photographs, and a book-things that can be enjoyed almost anywhere. Lindsay reflects on art, technology, consumption, near-death experiences, encounters with the wild, psychedelics, time travel, failure, and courage. There are clues embedded in the pairings of words and images; solve the riddle, then come over for supper. Bring your friends-he will cook for you.

Notebooks, Volume 1, 1998-99
For a long time, it was not clear if I would become a writer or an artist, says Anselm Kiefer, whose paintings and sculptures have made him one of the most significant and influential artists of our time. Since he was awarded the Peace Prize by the German Book Trade in 2008, his essays, speeches, and lectures have gradually received more attention, but until now his diary accounts have been almost completely unknown. The power in Kiefer's images, however, is rivaled by his writings on nature and history, literature and antiquity, and mysticism and mythology. The first volume of Notebooks spans the years 1998-1999 and traces the origins and creative process of Kiefer's visual works during this period. In this volume, Kiefer returns constantly to his touchstones: sixteenth-century alchemist Robert Fludd, German romantic poet Novalis, Martin Heidegger, Ingeborg Bachmann, Robert Musil, and many other writers and thinkers. The entries reveal the process by which his artworks are informed by his reading-and vice versa-and track the development of the works he created in the late 1990s. Translated into English for the first time by Tess Lewis, the diaries reveal Kiefer's strong affinity for language and let readers witness the process of thoughts, experiences, and adventures slowly transcending the limits of art, achieving meaning in and beyond their medium.

Wieland Wagner: Opera Work
The director, painter, and set designer Wieland Wagner (1917-1966) influenced an entire era in the history of the Bayreuth Festival. When, along with his brother, Wagner assumed responsibility for the art direction in 1951, he led the festival out of its ideology-laden traditions and ventured towards a complete reorientation. The Richard Wagner renaissance, for which the composer's grandchildren stood, was quickly regarded as the New Bayreuth. Wieland Wagner's production of Parsifal for the first postwar festival in 1951 made history, and remained in the event's repertoire until 1973. Wagner's set designs embodied an unsurpassed, symbolic power, which both his artistry as well as his collaboration with the singers emanated alike. A monumental volume is now published on the occasion of his 100th birthday. It critically reviews the work of one of the greatest reformers of the opera stage in the twentieth century and presents new perspectives for opera as a synthesis of the arts in the twenty-first century.

Four Corridors: Design Initiative for RPA's Fourth Regional Plan
The Regional Plan Association has produced four comprehensive regional plans for the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut metropolitan region since its foundation in 1922. This book examines the evolving role of design in the first three plans and presents the design initiatives of the Fourth Regional Plan (2017) in depth. The new plan seeks to shift the focus of regional planning from a traditional center-to-periphery hierarchy to an expanded notion of corridor that includes transportation, ecology, access, and equity. Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, this collaborative initiative of the Regional Plan Association, Princeton University, and four innovative design teams produced design proposals for four regional corridors: the Highlands (forest corridor), the Bight (coastal corridor), the Inner Ring (suburban corridor), and the Triboro (city corridor).

The Pursuit of Art: Travels, Encounters and Revelations
Bestselling author of Modernists & Mavericks Martin Gayford recounts some of the extraordinary journeys he has made in the name of art. In the course of a career thinking and writing about art, Martin Gayford has travelled all over the world both to see works of art and to meet artists. Gayford's journeys, often to fairly inaccessible places, involve frustrations and complications, but also serendipitous encounters and outcomes, which he makes as much a part of the story as the final destination. Entertaining and informative, Gayford includes trips to see Brancusi's Endless Column in Romania, prehistoric cave art in France, the museum island of Naoshima in Japan, the Judd Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and a Roni Horn work in Iceland. Interwoven with these accounts are journeys to meet artists - Robert Rauschenberg in New York, Marina Abramovic in Venice, Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris - or travels with artists, such as a trip to Beijing with Gilbert & George. These encounters not only provide insights into the way artists approach and think about their art but also reveal the importance of their personal environments. And in the process, Gayford discusses how these meetings have impacted on his own evolving ideas and tastes.

Audience Engagement in the Performing Arts: A Critical Analysis
This book explores the concept of audience engagement from a number of complementary perspectives, including cultural value, arts marketing, co-creation and digital engagement. It offers a critical review of the existing literature on audience research and engagement, and provides an overview of established and emerging methodologies deployed to undertake research with audiences. The book focusses on the performing arts, but draws from a rich diversity of academic fields to make the case for a radically interdisciplinary approach to audience research. The book's underlying thesis is that at the heart of audience research there is a mutual exchange of value wherein audiences ideally play the role of strategic partners in the mission fulfilment of arts organisations. Illustrating how audiences have traditionally been side-lined, homogenised and vilified, it contends that the future paradigm of audience studies should be based on an engagement model, wherein audiences take their rightful place as subjects rather than objects of empirical research.

Anselm Kiefer in Conversation with Klaus Dermutz
I think in pictures. Poems help me with this. They are like buoys in the sea. I swim to them, from one to the other. In between, without them, I am lost. They are the handholds where something masses together in the infinite expanse. -Anselm Kiefer The only visual artist to have won the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, Anselm Kiefer is a profoundly literary painter. In the ten conversations with the writer and theologian Klaus Dermutz collected here, Kiefer returns to the essential elements of his art, his aesthetics, and his creative processes. Kiefer describes how the central materials of his art-lead, sand, water, fire, ashes, plants, clothing, oil paint, watercolor, and ink-influence the act of creation. No less decisive are his intellectual and artistic touchstones: the sixteenth-century Jewish mystic Isaac Luria, the German Romantic poet Novalis, Ingeborg Bachmann, Paul Celan, Martin Heidegger, Marcel Proust, Adalbert Stifter, the operas of Richard Wagner, the Catholic liturgy, and the innovative theater director and artist Tadeusz Kantor. Kiefer and Dermutz discuss all of these influential thinkers, as well as Kiefer's own status as a controversial figure. His relentless examination of German history, the themes of guilt, suffering, communal memory, and the seductions of destruction have earned him equal amounts of criticism and praise. The conversations in this book offer a rare insight into the mind of a gifted creator, appealing to artists, critics, art historians, cultural journalists, and anyone interested in the visual arts and the literature and history of the twentieth century.

The Rest Between Two Notes: Selected Works by Fran Forman
By integrating her contemporary photography with historical periods and various settings from around the world, Forman creates a world of illusion; upon closer inspection, what appears ordinary suggests an underlying tension and an aura of mystery. Expressed in the diffused colors of twilight and chiaroscruro, her images blur the boundaries between photography, late Renaissance painting, and film noir. Forman's photo-paintings explore those liminal and in-between moments - of coming and leaving, innocence and confidence, shadow and light, night and day, absence and connection, loss and longing, and not quite the past and not yet the future. Portals, both real and metaphorical, frequent her layered, complex and often dark dreamlike images. Her work is recognized for imbuing each image with strong, harmonious compositions and for her explosive use of color, light and shadow. As a cinematographer writes a narrative with movement and sound, Forman writes with still images, where the images have no power except through their position and relationship. It is these relationships that elicit emotions of desire, vulnerability, and a desperate longing for connection. Between Two Notes will feature over 100 images, insterspersed with comments from a diverse group of admirers.
