Jutta Vinzents new book is published: ‚From Space in Modern Art to a Spatial Art History: Reassessing Constructivism Through the Publication Circle, 1937 (Spatiotemporality/Raumzeitlichkeit)‘

The aim of the book series „SpatioTemporality“ is interdisciplinary scholarly exchange pertaining to practices and concepts in the double perspective of space and time.In studies informed by current theoretical approaches. spatiality and temporality are treated as constructs in inextricable correlation with each other in contexts both historical and contemporary. The core concern of the series is the role of space and time in people’s sociocultural and life-world concepts of themselves and in media representations.

This book traces artists’ theories of constructive space in the first half of the twentieth century. Drawing on these concepts and recent theories on space, it develops a methodology termed ‘Spatial Art History’ that conceives of artworks as physical spatio-temporal things, which produce the social, to overcome the reductive understanding of art as a mere mirror or facilitator of society.
