Knapp, Gottfried
Albrecht Ade's 'photages', created with special light techniques, have nothing in common with the 'photocollages' or 'photomontages' of the 20th century. When artists as different as El Lissitzky, John Heartfield, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Raoul Hausmann or Hannah Hoch constructed futuristically bold, surreal or satirical images from photographic materials as a response to quotations from reality cut out and then stuck into Cubist 'papiers colles' by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, they worked mainly with someone else's material, with trouvailles. In contrast, Ade uses only his own material for his combination images, and his method for mounting images, for 'editing them into each other', does not need of scissors and paste either. He cultivates the usually involuntary effect of double exposure, a hazard from the days of analogue photography. He controls the chances of pictorial superimposition and confusion, artfully and purposefully arranging his own, deliberately positioned images among and on top of each other, using a technically elaborate matching and omission process. Ade, as well as teaching at the Stuttgart Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, has intensively promoted cinematic animation techniques in his years as director of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and since 1990, as founder-director of the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, has allowed animated film and camera arts to develop in the greatest possible breadth, in fact has helped to win the Ludwigsburg model the highest artistic respect in the film world. This all suggests how inventively and ingeniously his creative output mingles artistically creative and elaborately technical ideas and fascinations. Photography as a creative method for fine art - something the pioneers of photography dreamed of in the 19th century - becomes reality in Albrecht Ade's 'photages'. The text is in English and German. 97pp.

Grant, Carl A.
This is a work specifically written to encourage research into multicultural education and to help researchers work through some of the inherent problems that face schools who have to deal with the challenge of educating numbers of different groups of students in a fair and equitable manner. The first part covers the marginalization of the discourse in multicultural education, dealing with the way in which traditional teaching writing has not acknowledged the validity of multicultural intellectual thought. The second part tackles the conduct of research in multicultural education, highlighting manifestations of inequality between cultural groups and giving guidance on useful research directions. The social impact of multiculturalism in education is covered in Part 3 and incorporates an analysis of state multicultural education programmes. 267pp.
