-Comprehensive essays and series of photos trace how modernism found its way into the American cultural landscape As the 1930s began, Alfred H. Barr Jr., founder of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Philip Johnson, distinguished architect, brought the principles of the Bauhaus to America - even before exiles from Nazi Germany fully established the idea of architecture and furnishings as a functional whole in the United States. Barr's organization of the museum reflected the departmental structure of the Bauhaus, elevating architecture, graphic design, utilitarian furniture design, industrial design, photography and film to be on an equal footing with painting and sculpture, and endorsing all to be recognized as art. Barr and Johnson curated exceptional exhibitions such as Modern Architecture, International Exhibition (1932) and Machine Art (1934) at MoMA and created modern interiors in private living quarters. In this book, comprehensive essays and series of photos trace how modernism found its way into the American cultural landscape. Text in German.

Since the 1960s, Bernd Munsteiner (1943) has focused in his sculpture on the aesthetic qualities of natural mineral formations. The first contemporary artist to have approached gemstones in this way, he has left far behind him the glitzy world of jewels, facet-cutting and market valuation by virtue of carat and purity practised by the jewellery trade. During an artistic career spanning more than forty years, Bernd Munsteiner has created a rich oeuvre with which he is represented worldwide in public and private collections. He is world-famous as an outstanding innovator in modern gem-cutting, especially for the spectacular sculptures from the Metamorphosis cycle, cut from an 850-kg rock crystal with needle-like rutile inclusions, and the 35-cm-high sculpture Dom Pedro - Ondas Maritimas - the largest cut aquamarine in the world.
