Fotografie und Entwerfen

Philipp Reinfeld

Philipp Reinfeld befasst sich mit den Möglichkeiten architektonischer Raumproduktion auf der Basis von Privatfotos, die in den sozialen Medien heute eine eigene Kommunikationsform herausgebildet haben.
Seitdem Kameratechnik zur zentralen technischen Komponente des Smartphones geworden ist, erhält das fotografische Bild eine erweiterte Bedeutung und Funktionalität. Der fotografische Zugang zur Welt zielt heute weniger auf eine Bezeugung etwas vormals Geschehenem ab, als vielmehr auf eine laufend sich wiederholende Veräußerung eigenen Handelns im „Hier“ und „Jetzt“. In gleicher Weise wie frühere Formen bildlich-perspektivischer Raumrepräsentationen Einfluss hatten auf die Konstitution räumlicher Gestaltgebung, beginnen auch die neuen fotografischen „Bildwelten“, die Architekturproduktion im Sinn eines Übersprungs bildlicher Logik in räumliche Materialisierungen spezifisch zu bestimmen.

The lives of William Cavendish, first duke of Newcastle, and his family including, centrally, his second wife, Margaret Cavendish, are intimately bound up with the overarching story of seventeenth-century England: the violently negotiated changes in structures of power that constituted the Civil Wars, and the ensuing Commonwealth and Restoration of the monarchy. William Cavendish, 1st Duke of Newcastle, and his Political, Social and Cultural Connections: Authority, Authorship and Aristocratic Identity in Seventeenth Century England brings together a series of interrelated essays that present William Cavendish, his family, household and connections as an aristocratic, royalist case study, relating the intellectual and political underpinnings and implications of their beliefs, actions and writings to wider cultural currents in England and mainland Europe.


History, Early Research and Recent Studies of the Principal Fortress of the Teutonic Order


Edited by Adrian Boas and Rabei G. Khamisy

Montfort Castle, located in the western Galilee, was the principal fortress of the Teutonic Order, one of the three great military orders of the Crusader period. It was built in the early thirteenth century and occupied and dismantled by the Mamluk army in 1271. It is among the finest examples of Crusader spur castles. This present volume includes discussions by 23 scholars, experts in their fields, in 28 chapters covering every aspect of past and recent scholarship on the history of the Teutonic Order and the castle, travellers’ descriptions, the architecture, the geographical setting, the material culture of the garrison, and detailed descriptions of the 1926 archaeological expedition to Montfort and the ongoing work of the Montfort Castle Project.

The awarding committee stated that the volume offers ‘a through exploration of all the sources, archaeological and literary, relating to an important site. A model for future work.’
