Pressestimmen

"In whose time do you and the work of art exist? Pamela Lee has written the founding question for a new criticism."--Molly Nesbit, Department of Art, Vassar College "Readers of Deleuze will be attracted to this book's complexity. Architectures of Time poses real problems for use in considering modern culture and our own: How shall we understand the pressure of events? What constitutes a grasp of nature? How does a historical example help us? In the course of Kwinter's case studies, both time and design come alive."

In the course of Kwinter's case studies, both time and design come alive."--Molly Nesbit, Department of Art, Vassar College "Like Gyorgy Kepes and Moholy-Nagy before him, Kwinter touches everything. His real genius is his capacity to fold almost any object into the problem at hand. He builds a network of bridges between zones that seem impossibly distant--Kafka and Einstein, Bergson and Sant'Elia--and charges the terrain between them with potential."--Bruce Mau, Bruce Mau Design "Kwinter's unspoken deconstruction of Sigfried Giedeon's space-time mantra frees architecture from its half-century bondage to classical modernism and opens an emergent organicism to a powerful window on contemporary thought."--Peter Eisenman, architect
