Art in Post-War Germany by Hans-Jürgen Syberberg (Hans-Jurgen)

On the Fortunes and Misfortunes of Art in Post-War Germany by Hans-Jürgen Syberberg
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 713 KB
Overview: Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, an unconventional book appeared in Germany which ignited a firestorm of cultural debate. Decried by many as the work of a dangerous mind, it was defended by the more discerning as an intrepid appraisal of the illness of our times. But despite all its defenders, both the book and its creator were cast into the shadows of unofficial censorship.

Here for the first time is the full English translation of this controversial and eminently important work of cultural criticism by groundbreaking film director Hans-Jürgen Syberberg. Syberberg, whose films include the radically innovative Requiem for a Virgin King and the monumental Hitler: A Film from Germany, turns his uncompromising creative vision to the poverty and paralysis besetting contemporary European culture.

Broad in its knowledge, deep in its passion, relentlessly keen in its insight, Syberberg’s On the Fortunes and Misfortunes of Art in Post-War Germany is one of the most profound meditations on the culture, society and politics of modern Germany and the West.

Archaic and Classical Greek Art by Robin Osborne

Archaic and Classical Greek Art by Robin Osborne
Requirements: .PDF reader, 26 MB
Overview: Archaic and Classical Greek Art is a revolutionary introduction to the images and sculptures of Ancient Greece from the Geometric period to the early Hellenistic. By carefully examining the context in which sculptures and paintings were produced, author Robin Osborne shows how artists responded to the challenges they faced in the formidable and ambitious world of the Greek city-state, producing the rich diversity of forms apparent in Greek art. Artistic developments of the period combined the influences of the symbolism and imagery of eastern Mediterranean art with the explorations of humanity embodied in the narratives of Greek poetry, while drawings and sculptures referred so intimately to the human form as to lead both ancient and modern theorists to talk in terms of the ‘mimetic’ role of art. Ranging widely over the fields of sculpture, vase painting, and the minor arts, and offering a wide selection of unusual images alongside the familiar masterpieces, this work discusses the changing forms of art, and how art was used to define men’s relationships with other men, women, slaves, society, nature, and the gods.

The Wise Advocate by Art Kleiner + (.M4B)

The Wise Advocate: The Inner Voice of Strategic Leadership by Art Kleiner, Jeffrey M. Schwartz MD, Josie Thomson
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 235 MB
Overview: Leadership is the habit of making good choices. Even in difficult and uncertain circumstances, the most effective leaders focus their attention and overcome entrenched patterns of behavior to push an organization to new heights of success. This capability is no fluke: the latest research on the brain shows that we can pinpoint the mental activity associated with it-and cultivate it for our benefit.
In this book, Art Kleiner, a strategy expert; Jeffrey Schwartz, a research psychiatrist; and Josie Thomson, an executive coach, give a transformative explanation of how cutting-edge neuroscience can help business leaders set a course toward better management. Mapping the functions of a manager onto established patterns of mental activity, they identify crucial brain circuits and their parallels in organizational culture. Strategic leaders, they show, play the role of wise advocates: able to go beyond day-to-day transactional behavior to a longer-term, broader perspective that articulates their organization’s deeper purpose. True leaders can play this influencer role in an organization because they have cultivated similar self-reflective habits in their own minds. Providing a powerful guide to decision strategies and their consequences, The Wise Advocate helps managers find their own inner voice and then make that voice ring out loud and clear, with a four-step program for practice and catalytic implications for management strategy, executive education, and business results.
