Contributions to the series "SpatioTemporality / RaumZeitlichkeit"

For the book series "SpatioTemporality / RaumZeitlichkeit" researchers are invited to hand in contributions.

The aim of the series is to establish an interdisciplinary, scientific exchange that refers to practices and concepts of the double perspective of SpatioTemporality and that is oriented towards actual theoretical approaches. Spatiality and Temporality are considered as constructs that are in historical and contemporary contexts in a direct correlation between each other.

From Space in Modern Art to a Spatial Art History Reassessing Constructivism through the Publication "Circle" (1937)

The sixt volume of our series SpatioTemporality with the title From Space in Modern Art to a Spatial Art History Reassessing Constructivism through the Publication "Circle" (1937) was published at de Gruyter.

This book by Jutta Vinzent traces artists’ theories of constructive space in the first half of the twentieth century. Drawing on these concepts and recent theories on space, it develops a methodology termed ‘Spatial Art History’ that conceives of artworks as physical spatio-temporal things, which produce the social, to overcome the reductive understanding of art as a mere mirror or facilitator of society.

SpatioTemporalities on the Line / Volume III: SpatioTemporality

The third volume of our series SpatioTemporality with the title SpatioTemporality on the Line is published at de Gruyter.

Lines reflect and influence the spatial and temporal structures of our world view. Taking Tim Ingold’s cultural history of the line as a startingpoint, this book understands lines as expressions that allow insights into cultural theoretical phenomena and thus go beyond their mere form. The essays will investigate this premise from various disciplines (architecture, art, cartography, film, literature and philosophy).

With contributions by:
Sebastian Dorsch, Jutta Vinzent & Tim Ingold, Angelika Seppi, Jochen Brüning, Anna-Katharina Rieger, Semantha Schramm, Barbara von Orelli-Messerli, Kathrin Fehringer, Harry O. Maier und Holger Berg.

Taktungen und Rhythmen / Volume II: Spatio Temporality

The second volume of our series SpatioTemporality with the title Taktungen und Rythmen is published at de Gruyter.

What is the potential power of "rhythm" as a conceptual key term for understanding the interplay between space and time? This volume explores this power in interdisciplinary essays on seasonality and rhythm, travel, transport and logistics, rhythm and time, and music and space. The theoretical foundation is provided by the French sociologist Henri Lefebvre’s concept of "rhythmanalysis."

With contributions by:
Susanne Rau, Michael Rothmann, Veronika Lang, Ekkehard Schönherr, Sylvelyn Hähner-Rombach, Heiner Stahl, Daniela Zetti, Daniel Martin Feige, Oliver Schwerdt, Lucia Kessler-Kakoulidis und Holt Meyer.
