Description - Two Minds by Jes Fernie
"Two Minds" is a major volume exploring and critiquing the subject of collaboration between artists and architects. Interest and activity in this field is growing rapidly, making this book a timely consideration of an important phenomenon. Extensively illustrated and stunningly designed, the book documents 18 projects funded through the RSA Art for Architecture scheme and focuses on work by internationally renowned figures such as Mark Dion, Chris Ofili, David Adjaye and Herzog & de Meuron, alongside that of emerging practitioners. As well as containing in depth case studies, "Two Minds" features commissioned essays by Philip Ursprung and Cara Mullio which explore key issues surrounding collaborative practice. A range of dynamic and pertinent topics are discussed, including the high level of support for art and architecture schemes in German speaking areas of Europe, the recent move of many so-called 'gallery' artists into the public domain and new ways of working that are opened up through collaboration.
Edited by freelance writer and art consultant Jes Fernie, "Two Minds" is an invaluable resource for architects, curators, artists, urban planners and all those involved in creating buildings, spaces and things for the public domain. Artists and architects included in "Two Minds" are: Chris Ofili, Herzog & de Meuron, Diener & Diener, Joep van Lieshout, Mark Dion, Tania Kovats, David Adjaye, Adam Caruso, Pipilotti Rist, Tony Fretton, Alex de Rijke, Katherine Clarke, Michael Craig-Martin, Antoni Malinowski, and Chris Burden.
