Books Info:

"Else-where: Essays in Art, Architecture, and Cultural Production 2002-2011" is a synoptic survey of the representational values given to art, architecture, and cultural production at the closing of the twentieth century and the opening of the twenty-first. Written primarily as a critique of what is suppressed in architecture and what is disclosed in art, the essays are informed by the passage out of post-structuralism and its disciplinary analogues toward the Real (denoted over the course of the studies as the "Real-Irreal," or "Else-where"). The essays collected in "Else-where" cross various disciplines (inclusive of landscape architecture, architecture, and visual art) to develop a nuanced critique of a renascent formal regard and elective exit from nihilism in art and architecture that is also an invocation of the highest coordinates given to the arts - that is, formal ontology as speculative intelligence itself, or the return of the universal as utopian thought "here-and-now".
