Biographies & Space

Editat de Dana Arnold, Joanna Sofaer Derevenski
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 07 Apr 2015
Bringing together a collection of high-profile authors, Biographies and Space presents essays exploring the relationship between biography and space and how specific subjects are used as a means of explaining sets of social, cultural and spatial relationships.
Biographical methods of historical investigation can bring out the authentic voice of subjects, revealing personal meanings and strategies in space as well as providing a means to analyze relations between the personal and the social. Writing about both actual (architectural) and imagined (pictorial) space, the authors consider issues of gender, childhood, sexuality and race, highlighting an increasing fluidity and interaction between theory, methods and history.
Biographies and Space is an original and exciting new book, with direct relevance to both architectural and art history.
