Montage has been hailed as one of the key structural principles of modernity, yet its importance to the history of modern thought about cities and their architecture has never been adequately explored. In this groundbreaking new work, Martino Stierli charts the history of montage in late 19th-century urban and architectural contexts, its application by the early 20th-century avant-gardes, and its eventual appropriation in the postmodern period. With chapters focusing on photomontage, the film theories of Sergei Eisenstein, Mies van der Rohe's spatial experiments, and Rem Koolhaas's use of literary montage in his seminal manifesto Delirious New York (1978), Stierli demonstrates the centrality of montage in modern explorations of space, and in conceiving and representing the contemporary city. Beautifully illustrated, this interdisciplinary book looks at architecture, photography, film, literature, and visual culture, featuring works by artists and architects including Mies, Koolhaas, Paul Citroen, George Grosz, Hannah Hoech, El Lissitzky, and Le Corbusier.

La nostra recensione

An impressive and excellent work of scholarship. -Peter Sealy, JSAH Through words, and 157 wonderfully curated images, Stierli describes the arrival of montage as a (and possibly the) dominant shaper of modernity, deftly charting its rise and multiple appearances through the avant-garde, architecture and cinema. -Simon von Wolkenstein, Architectural Theory Review With elegant prose and excellent illustrations, Stierli reconciles erudition and clarity to explain the confluence of architecture, photography, film, and the visual arts in the crucible of modernity - Luis Fernandez-Galiano, Arquitectura Viva Finalist for the 2019 Modernist Studies Association Book Prize Listed on Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles List for 2019 A stunning, complex reassessment of architectural modernism, recast in its very essence through lucid discussions of significant relationships like Mies van der Rohe and Dada, and Eisenstein and Constructivism. -Jean-Louis Cohen, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University Montage and the Metropolis is a substantial achievement. The author provides an elegant and compelling history of architectural montage in modernism, with a provocative extension to the postmodern. -Claire Zimmerman, author of Photographic Architecture in the Twentieth Century Montage and the Metropolis is a landmark contribution to our understanding of how modern architecture emerged in dialogue with film, photography, and the visual arts. -Edward Dimendberg, author of Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture after Images
