Synopsis: In Parcours Muséologique Revisité Robert Polidori delivers a sublime photographic tract on architectural revisionism by charting the decades-long conservation project at Versailles. One of the world's largest palaces, and a symbol of absolute monarchy in France, Versailles is a supremely apropos building through which to address matters of revisionism, having been subjected to four building campaigns (between 1664 and 1697) by Louis XIV alone, and several modifications since.
So what does restoring a room really entail? Does restoration intend the precise recreation of what once was? And if so, how much "creativity" goes into determining a room's original condition? The curatorial decisions steering this project inevitably betray political and aesthetic affiliations that have morphed over the course of the restoration, and Polidori has been in attendance to record them. Photographed over a period of 25 years, the ever-evolving phases of Versaille's grandeur are here laid bare for the reader to decode and admire.
Robert Polidori was born in Montreal in 1951 and lives in New York City. His work has been shown in Paris, Brasília, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis among many other places. A staff photographer for the New Yorker, Polidori has received numerous honors, including a World Press Award for his coverage of the construction of the Getty Museum and two Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards for his work in Havana and Brasilia. His bestselling books Havana, Zones of Exclusion: Pripyat and Chernobyl and After the Flood are published by Steidl.

About the Author: A wide-ranging collection of images by the widely exhibited New York-based photographer who focuses on cycles of construction, stasis, and decay in cities and buildings throughout the world

Book Description Welche Aspekte spielen eine Rolle bei der Revision und Restauration historischer Gebäude und Interieurs? Sollen die Spuren der Zeit sichtbar bleiben oder soll der ursprüngliche Zustand exakt nachgebildet werden? Ist eine vollständige Neudefinition erforderlich oder die Rückbesinnung auf eine bestimmte Epoche, deren Prägung unterstrichen werden soll? Die kuratorischen Entscheidungen, die diesen Prozess begleiten, spiegeln sowohl die politischen Absichten wie auch ästhetische Vorlieben, die im Verlauf lang dauernder Restaurationsarbeiten auch verschiedene Gestalt annehmen können. Robert Polidori, der vielfach ausgezeichnete Fotograf, untersucht in diesem Mammutwerk den Fragenkomplex am Beispiel der Restaurierung des Palastes von Versailles. 25 Jahre lang hat er die Arbeiten durch alle Stadien der Vorbereitung und des Übergangs bis zur heute gültigen Situation fotografiert. Die Bilder offenbaren die gewaltige Anstrengung, die ein solches Unternehmen erfordert, aber auch durch die Vielschichtigkeit der Geschichte und wechselnde politische Interessen hervorgerufene Paradoxien. Empfehlenswert für Fotografiebegeisterte wie Architekten und kulturhistorisch interessierte Leser. (Text engl.) 3 Bände à 30,5 x 30 cm, zus. 744 S., 480 Farbtafeln., bedrucktes Leinen im Schuber.
