Temporality, Impermanence And The Museum The Ethics Of Conservation And The Works Of Anselm Kiefer, Virginia A. Dressler May 2003

Temporality, Impermanence And The Museum The Ethics Of Conservation And The Works Of Anselm Kiefer, Virginia A. Dressler

Virginia A Dressler

Using some of the concepts from Heidegger's 'The origin of a work of art'
as a foundation, I will argue that every work is a unique and original entity, not
capable of being simulated or repeated by artificial means. A work is bound by the
temporal nature of its own material, as in all forms of matter. The product of
restoration work is ultimately a copy of the original, destroying a work's original

The Architecture Of Joseph Michael Gandy (1771-1843) And Sir John Soane (1753-1837): An Exploration Into The Masonic And Occult Imagination Of The Late Enlightenment, Terrance Gerard Galvin

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

In examining select works of English architects Joseph Michael Gandy and Sir John Soane, this dissertation is intended to bring to light several important parallels between architectural theory and freemasonry during the late Enlightenment.
