EMIGRE CULTURES IN DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE. Ed. by Alison J. Clarke and Elana Shapira. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2017. 262 pp. with 57 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781474275606 In English.
Publisher's description: Emigre Cultures in Design and Architecture considers the lasting contribution made by Central European designers and architects (including Paul T. Frankl, Richard Neutra, Frederick Kiesler, Bernard Rudofsky, Eva Zeisel, Paul Laszlo, Xanti Schawinsky, Gyorgy Kepes and Victor J. Papanek) to twentieth-century design and architecture. Featuring leading academics in the field, the edited collection examines how oppositional stances in debates concerning consumption and modernism's social agendas in Europe prefigured the adoption or rejection of emigres such as Joseph Binder, Josef Frank and Felix Augenfeld by American culture. The contributors to this cutting-edge volume argue that emigres and refugees from fascist Europe drew on the particular experiences of their home countries, and networks of emigre and exiled designers in the United States, developing a humanist, progressive and socially inclusive design culture which continues to influence design practice today.
