devitrine #6 The architecture-sculpture network/André Bloc and his journals

Cover devitrine#6Curator: Angelique Campens

The writer, architect and artist André Bloc (1896–1966) was also the editor, and founder, of several important journals: L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui (1930–present), and its spin offs Art d’Aujourd’hui (1949–1954) and Aujourd’hui Art et Architecture (1955–1967). Through these magazines Bloc aimed at creating a network bringing together architects and sculptors.

Drawing from the holdings of the Faculty Library Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University, devitrine #6 shows some results of research in this endeavour. For the exhibition, we selected approximately 60 articles from L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui and Aujourd’hui Art et Architecture from the library’s extensive journal collections.

The exhibition displays a selection of articles from these journals that highlighted and promoted the relationship between art and architecture. devitrine #6 includes articles on architectural sculpture, art integrations, sculptural environments, museum buildings, museum displays and private sculptural homes that were often executed in béton brut.
