OKNO V KNJIŽNICO 7 | John Cage in Black Mountain College | maj—julij 2016

John Cage 

5. 9. 1912 – 13. 8. 1992

Ameriški avantgardni skladatelj, filozof, pisatelj in grafik. Znan je po uvedbi »prepariranega klavirja« in neodadaistični zasnovi glasbe, npr. 4'33 (1952). Prispeval je k razvoju eksperimentalne glasbe. Skladb ni pisal v dokončni obliki, temveč kot dela v nastajanju, pri čemer je zelo pomembno kompozicijsko načelo naključja. Revolucioniral je odnos do časa in notnega zapisa.

 

Black Mountain College 

1933 – 1957,  Asheville, Severna Karolina

Black Mountain College je bila eksperimentalna ameriška interdisciplinarna umetniška šola slikarjev, arhitektov, glasbenikov in pesnikov. Eden prvih profesorjev je bil Josef Albers, ki je z ženo, tekstilno umetnico Anni Albers, prišel iz Bauhausa, ki so ga zaradi naraščajočega pritiska nacistične stranke leta 1933 zaprli. Zakonca Albers sta v sodelovanju z Richardom Buckminstrom Fullerjem, Elaine in Willemom de Kooningom, Johnom Cageom, Robertom Rauschenbergom na Black Mountain Collegu oblikovala interdisciplinarni kurikulum, ki je poleg formalne izobrazbe obsegal tudi tečaje in delavnice različnih umetniških smeri: branje poezije, performance, multimedijsko umetnost, fotografijo, gledališče in ples.

 

John Cage je prvič obiskal Black Mountain College v aprilu 1948 s prijateljem koreografom Merceom Cunninghamom. V naslednjih letih sta tam večkrat gostovala kot profesorja.

 

John Cage ni bil vpliven le kot skladatelj eksperimentalne glasbe temveč tudi kot filozof in umetnik. Velik vpliv je imel na likovno umetnost in umetnike, med njimi so bili Mark Tobey, Max Ernst, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns in Marcel Duchamp. Z njimi je sodeloval in o njihovih delih tudi pisal.

Drugi dodatek k nasl. naveden v kolofonu. - "In 1933, John Rice founded Black

Mountain College in North Carolina as an experiment in making artistic experience

central to learning. Though it operated for only 24 years, this pioneering school

played a significant role in fostering avant-garde art, music, dance, and poetry,

and an astonishing number of important artists taught or studied there. Among

the instructors were Josef and Anni Albers, John Cage, Merce Cunningham,

Buckminster Fuller, Karen Karnes, M. C. Richards, and Willem de Kooning, and

students included Ruth Asawa, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. Leap

Before You Look is a singular exploration of this legendary school and of the work

of the artists who spent time there. Scholars from a variety of fields contribute

original essays about diverse aspects of the College-spanning everything from its

farm program to the influence of Bauhaus principles-and about the people and

ideas that gave it such a lasting impact. In addition, catalogue entries highlight

selected works, including writings, musical compositions, visual arts, and crafts.

The book's fresh approach and rich illustration program convey the atmosphere

of creativity and experimentation that was unique to Black Mountain College,

and that served as an inspiration to so many. This timely volume will be essential

reading for anyone interested in the College and its enduring legacy." -->

  10. DIAZ, Eva

        The experimenters : chance and design at Black Mountain College / Eva Díaz. –

Chicago ; London : The University of Chicago Press, cop. 2015. - X, 215 str., [16] str.

pril. : ilustr. ; 26 cm

"Practically every major artistic figure of the mid-twentieth century spent some time

at Black Mountain College: Harry Callahan, Merce Cunningham, Walter Gropius,

Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Aaron

Siskind, Cy Twombly - the list goes on and on. Yet scholars have tended to view

these artists' time at the college as little more than prologue, a step on their way t

o greatness. With The Experimenters, Eva Diaz reveals the influence of Black

Mountain College - and especially of three key instructors, Josef Albers, John

Cage, and R. Buckminster Fuller - to be much greater than that. Diaz's focus is

on experimentation. Albers, Cage, and Fuller, she shows, taught new models of

art making that favored testing procedures rather than personal expression. The

resulting projects not only reconfigured the relationships among chance, order,

and design - they helped redefine what artistic practice was, and could be, for

future generations. Offering a bold, compelling new angle on some of the most

widely studied creative minds of the twentieth century, The Experimenters does

nothing less than rewrite the story of art in the mid-twentieth century."--> na ov. –
