Title of the work: Everything is Illuminated. A novel
Pages: 288
Place of publishing:
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Date of publishing: 2002
Illustrations: no
Short content or description:
With only a yellowing photograph in hand, a young man - also named Jonathan Safran Foer - sets out to find the woman who might or might not have saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Junior, Junior, and the unforgettable Alex, a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, Jonathan is led on a quixotic journey over a devastated landscape and into an unexpected past. As their adventure unfolds, Jonathan imagines the history of his grandfather's village, conjuring a magical fable of startling symmetries that unite generations across time. Lit by passion, fear, guilt, memory, and hope, the characters in Everything Is Illuminated mine the black holes of history. As the search moves back in time, the fantastical history moves forward, until reality collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power. An arresting blend of high comedy and great tragedy, this is a story about searching for people and places that no longer exist, for the hidden truths that haunt every family, and for the delicate but necessary tales that link past and future.

Title of the work: Thing Knowledge. A Philosophy of Scientific Instruments
Pages: 294 Publisher: The University of California Press
Date of publishing: 2004
Graphics/illustrations: 23 b/w photographs, 24 line illustrations, 2 tables
Short content or description: Western philosophers have traditionally concentrated on theory as the means for expressing knowledge about a variety of phenomena. This absorbing book challenges this fundamental notion by showing how objects themselves, specifically scientific instruments, can express knowledge. As he considers numerous intriguing examples, Davis Baird gives us the tools to "read" the material products of science and technology and to understand their place in culture. Making a provocative and original challenge to our conception of knowledge itself, Thing Knowledge demands that we take a new look at theories of science and technology, knowledge, progress, and change. Baird considers a wide range of instruments, including Faraday's first electric motor, eighteenth-century mechanical models of the solar system, the cyclotron, various instruments developed by analytical chemists between 1930 and 1960, spectrometers, and more.

Title of the work: Phantom Avantgarde. Eine Geschichte der Situationistischen Internationale und der modernen Kunst
Pages: 336
Graphics/illustrations: 200 b/w + 16 colour
Short content or description: »Niemals werde ich Erklärungen abgeben. Nun bist Du ganz allein mit unseren Geheimnissen.« Mit dieser Haltung hat Guy Debord, der Protagonist der Situationistischen Internationale, bisher eine genaue Untersuchung dieser Gruppierung verhindert. Sie blieb daher so unbekannt wie berüchtigt. Roberto Ohrt legt erstmals eine kritische Chronologie der Situationistischen Internationale und ihrer Zeit vor, eine pointierte Geschichte der modernen Kunst seit 1945 in den Bereichen Malerei, Literatur, Film, Architektur, Aktion. Der Autor spürt den Verbindungen zum späten Surrealismus, zum Lettrismus, zu Cobra, den Nouveaux Réalistes und der Pop Art nach.
