Written and photographed by members of the Slow Travel Berlin team, 100 Favourite Places draws on the contributors' deep knowledge and experience of the city to present one hundred great places that favour the timeless over the trendy, and the obscure over the obvious. From hundred-year-old cafes and hidden GDR watchtowers, speciality shops and esoteric museums, each entry has been thoughtfully chosen and written in a personal, highly informative style. 100 Favourite Places reflects Slow Travel Berlin’s commitment to sustainable travel and a professional content aesthetic. Every aspect of the book has been taken care of in-house, from the friendly, eye-catching design and the professional, full colour photographs that accompany each entry, to the charming hand-drawn maps (created by Berlin-based artist and illustrator Katrin Hagen, aka Mischief Champion) – which make 100 Favourite Places a perfect guide-on-the-go, as well as a handsome coffee-table enhancer.

Imagining The West In Eastern Europe And The Soviet Union

This volume presents work from an international group of writers who explore conceptualizations of what defined “East” and “West” in Eastern Europe, imperial Russia, and the Soviet Union. The contributors analyze the effects of transnational interactions on ideology, politics, and cultural production. They reveal that the roots of an East/West cultural divide were present many years prior to the rise of socialism and the Cold War.

The chapters offer insights into the complex stages of adoption and rejection of Western ideals in areas such as architecture, travel writings, film, music, health care, consumer products, political propaganda, and human rights. They describe a process of mental mapping whereby individuals “captured and possessed” Western identity through cultural encounters and developed their own interpretations from these experiences. Despite these imaginaries, political and intellectual elites devised responses of resistance, defiance, and counterattack to defy Western impositions.

Socialists believed that their cultural forms and collectivist strategies offered morally and materially better lives for the masses and the true path to a modern society. Their sentiments toward the West, however, fluctuated between superiority and inferiority. But in material terms, Western products, industry, and technology, became the ever-present yardstick by which progress was measured. The contributors conclude that the commodification of the necessities of modern life and the rise of consumerism in the twentieth century made it impossible for communist states to meet the demands of their citizens. The West eventually won the battle of supply and demand, and thus the battle for cultural influence.

In her apron and rubber gloves, a smile lipsticked permanently across her face, the woman of the Fifties has become a cultural symbol of all that we are most grateful to have sloughed off. A homely compliant creature, she knows little or nothing of sex, and stands no chance at all of having a career. She must marry or die. But what if there was another side to the story? In this book Rachel Cooke tells the story of ten extraordinary women whose pioneering professional lives - and complicated private lives - paved the way for future generations. Muriel Box, film director. Betty Box, film producer. Margery Fish, plantswoman. Patience Gray, cook. Alison Smithson, architect. Sheila van Damm, rally car driver and theatre owner. Nancy Spain, journalist and radio personality. Joan Werner Laurie, editor. Jacquetta Hawkes, archaeologist. Rose Heilbron, QC. Plucky and ambitious, they left the house, discovered the bliss of work, and ushered in the era of the working woman.

Symbolist Aesthetics And Early Abstract Art

The late nineteenth and early twentieth century was a crucial period in the emergence of new modes of representation, and is currently at the forefront of critical inquiry. This book presents imagination as a central concept in both literary and art criticism, and brings this approach to bear on works by Rimbaud, Mallarmé, Kandinsky and Mondrian. This allows Dee Reynolds to redefine the relationship between Symbolism and abstract art, and to contribute important new methodological perspectives to comparative studies of poetry, painting, and aesthetics.

Home to over 4,000 constructions built in a modernist style influenced by the Bauhaus, Tel Aviv's White City is a world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. This guide, written by the renowned conservation architect Sharon Golan Yaronm the co-founder and program director of the White City Center, offers the key to exploring the most important architectural sites in Tel Aviv. The buildings in the White City are characterized by a site-specific architectural language that adapts Euro­pean modernism to local climatic and cultural conditions. By exposing 100 such structures in four routes of 25 buildings, the book is a homage to the Bauhaus centennial celebrated in 2019. Furthermore, the guide illustrates the uniqueness of Tel Aviv's contemporary conservation approach, which maintains historic values while promoting the growth of the city through allowing additions on top of historical buildings.
