Todo sobre los angeles casa desgrana, estancia por estancia, los angeles evolución de los angeles vivienda a lo largo de los angeles historia y nos descubre el origen de nuestros arraigados hábitos domésticos.

Si los romanos comían acostados y durante l. a.

Las primeras camas construidas eran estructuras elevadas para evitar humedades, corrientes y ratas, y más que un mueble destinado al descanso, para los angeles nobleza medieval el lecho fue uno de los epicentros de l. a. actividad social de l. a. corte, donde se recibían visitas o se trataban asuntos de Estado. Los baños no gozaron de un espacio propio en l. a. vivienda hasta bien entrado el siglo xx, cuando convergió los angeles generalización de las tuberías, el agua caliente y las doctrinas higienistas

Anatxu Zabalbeascoa narra en este libro una crónica amena y apasionante de aquellos hechos que, como éstos, han configurado l. a. evolución de los angeles casa y de nuestros hábitos domésticos. Arquitectura, tecnología y vida privada confluyen en esta obra transdisciplinar que, partiendo de un análisis social y antropológico, nos narra los angeles historia de seis espacios baño, cocina, dormitorio, jardín, salón, comedor para desvelarnos l. a. evolución de nuestra propia cotidianidad. Por sus páginas no sólo desfilan Le Corbusier y Chippendale, el estilo Imperio y los jardines colgantes de Babilonia, sino también inventores y decoradores, políticos y monarcas, así como nobles, burgueses y campesinos.

El estudio de l. a. autora discurre en paralelo a las potentes ilustraciones de Riki Blanco, que han sido minuciosamente creadas para este relato, y logran captar y trasladar al lector a ambientes pretéritos con excepcional agudeza.

Download e-book for kindle: Fluxus (Arte Hoy nº 26) (Spanish Edition) by Iñaki Estella Noriega

By Iñaki Estella Noriega

Fluxus es uno de los movimientos artísticos más escurridizos de los angeles segunda mitad del siglo XX. Imbuido del espíritu del Dadá, su duración, sus participantes, sus características formales, sus intenciones sociales, las influencias que recibe y las que genera han sido objeto de un debate nunca cerrado completamente.

Desde su nacimiento, a medio camino entre Europa (Düsseldorf) y Estados Unidos, a finales de los cincuenta y principios de los sesenta, las diversas facetas que genera se centran tanto en el ámbito de l. a. acción, de los angeles renovación poética, lingüística y objetual, como en los angeles urgente necesidad de pensar el papel del artista en una sociedad crecientemente acomodada, cuestionando el arte como una práctica de los angeles crítica social.

Fluxus responde a una mezcla de todas las propuestas, l. a. música, l. a. functionality, el videoarte, las artes plásticas, haciendo de dicha mezcla su rasgo basic. Fluxus es un estado de ánimo.
Entre sus principales representantes se encuentran George Maciunas (que emplea el término «Fluxus» por primera vez en 1961), Joseph Beuys, John Cage, Allan Kaprov, Wolf Vostell, Nam June Paik, Al Hansen, el compositor l. a. Monte Young…

A partir de los ochenta el movimiento pasa de un estado marginal a ocupar un lugar protagonista, testándose las principales teorías de l. a. contemporaneidad a los angeles espera de poder ofrecer una imagen definitiva de Fluxus.

Sin pretender erigirse en cierre de las cuestiones que Fluxus plantea, los angeles obra se ofrece como cauce para entablar un debate productivo sobre este movimiento y su fructífera presencia en el arte actual.
