Werner, Frank R.
Hans Dieter Schaal is already something of a cultural institution in Germany. Trained as an architect, he always operates outside the "mainstream", designing and realizing stage sets, sculptures, cemeteries, parks, squares, spatial installations or book projects, which are often trend setters in their own field. In the last 10 years, Schaal has established a focal point that seems to be the sum of all his themes: exhibition architecture. He has provided expansive installations for the broadest possible range of exhibition subjects in such high-volume buildings as the Martin-Gropius-Bau or the Zeughaus in Berlin, the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn, the Kunstvereinsgebaude in Stuttgart, the Deutsches Postmuseum in Frankfurt am Main or the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome. His work was never mere "exhibition design" in these cases. Instead of this he was always concerned to tell spatial stories about the exhibits or their historical background. Of course he was able to draw on his experience in stage-set design here. Admittedly Schaal would not be Schaal, if he were not to use the whole stock of ideas from his decades of "lateral thinking" or his insatiable search for archetypes and images. On occasions this has meant that Schaal's exhibitions were admired simply because of their spatial sensations. It was only the very few people who were prepared to analyse the extraordinarily extensive and complex work more profoundly who found a carefully established subliminal relationship network of selected motifs running through all his exhibition installations like a central theme. Sometimes they come from his own early work, sometimes from literary or cinematic finds, then again from psychological-philosophical footnotes or even private obsessions. Such image particles constitute a thought-edifice - perhaps comparable only with Aby Warburg's legendary picture archive - which breaks right through the bounds of traditional exhibition architecture. 159pp.

Edited By Ponder,B.A., & Waring M.J
It has been recognized for almost 200 years that certain families seem to inherit cancer. It is only in the past decade, however, that molecular genetics and epidemiology have combined to define the role of inheritance in cancer more clearly, and to identify some of the genes involved. The causative genes can be tracked through cancer-prone families via genetic linkage and positional cloning. Several of the genes discovered have subsequently been proved to play critical roles in normal growth and development. There are also implications for the families themselves in terms of genetic testing with its attendant dilemmas, if it is not clear that useful action will result. The chapters in this work illustrate what has already been achieved and take a critical look at the future directions of this research and its potential clinical applications. 221pp.
