Constructions by John Rajchman

Book Description

foreword by Paul Virilio In this series of overlapping essays on architecture and art, John Rajchman attempts to do theory in a new way that takes off from the philosophy of the late Gilles Deleuze. Starting from notions of folding, lightness, ground, abstraction, and future cities, he embarks on a conceptual voyage whose aim is to help "construct" a new space of connections, to "build" a new idiom, perhaps even to suggest a new architecture. Along the way, he addresses questions of the new abstraction, operative form, other geometries, new technologies, global cities, ideas of the virtual and the formless, and possibilities for critical theory after utopia and transgression.

Books By Author John Rajchman

Fred Sandback by John Rajchman Fred Sandback, Hardback (July 2009)

In addition to a selection of drawings, the works documented in this well-edited monograph range from smaller-scale metal works made while Sandback was a student at Yale to later installations that engage entire rooms, demonstrating the development of his signature vocabulary of forms from 1969 to 2001.

Politics of Truth by John Rajchman Politics of Truth, Paperback (July 2007)

Ranging from reflections on the Enlightenment and revolution to a consideration of the Frankfurt School, this collection offers insight into the topics preoccupying Foucault as he worked on what would be his last body of published work, the three-volume History of Sexuality.
