Hornsey 1968 Book Description:

In May 1968, students occupied London’s Hornsey College of Art in a dispute over student union funds. This relatively minor issue soon expanded into a broad critique of Britain’s educational system. The one-day sit-in led to six weeks of intense debate, over 70 policy papers, and a prolonged confrontation with the local authorities. A special commission even conveyed the students’ demands to Parliament. Hornsey 1968 draws on previously unpublished archival material to present a full account of this seminal event.

Between Art Practice and Psychoanalysis Mid Twentieth Century Book Description:

The work of mid-twentieth century art theorist Anton Ehrenzweig is explored in this original and timely study. An analysis of the dynamic and invigorating intellectual influences, institutional framework and legacy of his work, Between Art Practice and Psychoanalysis reveals the context within which Ehrenzweig worked, how that influenced him and those artists with whom he worked closely. Beth Williamson looks to the writing of Melanie Klein, Marion Milner, Adrian Stokes and others to elaborate Ehrenzweig?s theory of art, a theory that extends beyond the visual arts to music. In this first full-length study on his work, including an inventory of his library, previously unexamined archival material and unseen artworks sit at the heart of a book that examines Ehrenzweig?s working relationships with important British artists such as Bridget Riley, Eduardo Paolozzi and other members of the Independent Group in London in the 1950s and 1960s. In Ehrenzweig?s second book The Hidden Order of Art (1967) his thinking on Jackson Pollock is important too. It was this book that inspired American artists Robert Smithson and Robert Morris when they deployed his concept of ?dedifferentiation?. Here Williamson offers new readings of process art c. 1970 showing how Ehrenzweig?s aesthetic retains relevance beyond the immediate post-war era.

British Student Activism in the Long Sixties Book Description:

Based on empirical evidence derived from university and national archives across the country and interviews with participants, British Student Activism in the Long Sixties reconstructs the world of university students in the 1960s and 1970s. Student accounts are placed within the context of a wide variety of primary and secondary sources from across Britain and the world, making this project the first book-length history of the British student movement to employ literary and theoretical frameworks which differentiate it from most other histories of student activism to date. Globalization, especially of mass communications, made British students aware of global problems such as the threat of nuclear weapons, the Vietnam War, racism, sexism and injustice. British students applied these global ideas to their own unique circumstances, using their intellectual traditions and political theories which resulted in unique outcomes. British student activists effectively gained support from students, staff, and workers for their struggle for student's rights to unionize, freely assemble and speak, and participate in university decision-making. Their campaigns effectively raised public awareness of these issues and contributed to significant national decisions in many considerable areas.

Student Power The Radical Days of the English Universities Book Description:

Student Power! The Radical days of the English Universities is an original contribution to the exploration and understanding of the radicality of the English student movement of the 1960s. This movement was significant and widespread within English universities, and occurred within the context of global student unrest. The research, on which this book is founded, brings together two key data sources, documents and oral history interviews, presenting previously unpublished and original research to detail the events of this important social movement. The book’s central focus is the exploration of the key events within the movement, detailing the type of actions that occurred across the duration of the movement so as to paint a picture of what the movement was like. Key insight is offered from those who were involved in the protests, giving a voice to those who know first-hand what it was like to be a student at the height of the ‘Swinging Sixties’. The significance of the 1960s student movement is also refocused through a contemporary lens. In light of recent renewals in student activism, comparisons and contrasts between the current situation of students within the higher education system in England and those who were students in the Sixties are discussed. By exploring what can be learnt from students of the Sixties, focusing upon how they were able to create and sustain a social movement of this scale, we can understand the constraints and influences on political action by students today. This book is therefore relevant not only to our understanding of the past, but also for thinking about social movements in the present. The book therefore offers a rich narrative of a fascinating social movement, telling previously untold stories of what it was like to be part of the biggest rebellion of English students at the height of the dramatic decade of change that was the Sixties. This title will be of interest to academics, students, activists, as well as those with a general interest in the history of the Sixties.

Graphic Assembly Book Description:

An innovative look at the contribution of montage to twentieth-century architecture Graphic Assembly unearths the role played by montage and collage in the development of architectural culture over the past century, revealing their unexamined yet crucial significance. Craig Buckley brings together experimental architectural practices based in London, Paris, Vienna, and Florence, showing how breakthroughs in optical media and printing technologies enabled avant-garde architects to reimagine their field. Graphic Assembly considers a range of architects and movements from the 1950s through the early ’70s, including Theo Crosby, Hans Hollein, and John McHale; the magazine Clip-Kit; and the groups Archigram, Superstudio, and Utopie. It gives a thorough account of how montage concepts informed the design of buildings, prototypes, models, exhibitions, and multimedia environments, accompanied by Buckley’s insightful interpretations of the iconic images, exhibitions, and buildings of the 1960s that mark how the decade is remembered. Richly illustrated with never-before-published material from more than a dozen archives and private collections, Graphic Assembly offers a comparative overview of the network of experimental architectural practice in Europe. It provides a deep historical account of the cut-and-paste techniques now prevalent with architecture’s digital turn, demonstrating the great importance of montage to architecture past, present, and future.
