Two Minds. Artists and Architects in Collaboration

Editor: Jes Fernie
Contributors: Jes Fernie, Cara Mullio, Philip Ursprung

Two Minds is a major volume exploring and critiquing the subject of collaboration between artists and architects. Interest and activity in this field is growing rapidly, making this book a timely consideration of an important phenomenon. Extensively illustrated and stunningly designed, the book documents 18 projects funded through the RSA Art for Architecture scheme and focuses on work by internationally renowned figures such as Mark Dion, Chris Ofili, David Adjaye and Herzog & de Meuron, alongside that of emerging practitioners. As well as containing in depth case studies, Two Minds features commissioned essays by Philip Ursprung and Cara Mullio which explore key issues surrounding collaborative practice. A range of dynamic and pertinent topics are discussed, including the high level of support for art and architecture schemes in German speaking areas of Europe, the recent move of many so-called 'gallery' artists into the public domain and new ways of working that are opened up through collaboration.
