Description - Landscapes of Memory and Experience by Jan Birksted
It has been argued that the history of landscapes and of gardens has been marginalized from the mainstream of art history and visual studies because of a lack of engagement with the theories, methods and concepts of these disciplines. This book explores possible ways out of this impasse in such a way that landscape studies would become pivotal through its theoretical advances, since landscape studies would challenge the underlying assumptions of traditional phenomenological theory. Thus the history and theory of twentieth century landscape might not only once again share concepts and methods with contemporary art and design history, but might in turn influence them. In this respect, the landscape perspective could have wide and profound critical and philosophical repercussions. The book includes sections on vision and optical instruments, memory, aesthetic analysis, the concept of nature, and on representation in landscape architecture.
