Access options available:. Anthony Vidler. Cambridge, Mass. While the choice of most of these architects seems obvious with regard to an investigation into the unheimlich, in the case of others the uncanny appears to turn up in the strangest of places. In this singular quest, Anthony Vidler has emerged as perhaps the most articulate architectural historian of the modern period and certainly as one of the most sympathetic critics of the postwar avant-gardes. Rather than complementing one another within the same pages of the current volume, however, these twin roles have not reached an entirely comfortable resolution in accommodating his broader project precisely and perversely within the elastic concept of the uncanny.

As an historian of the last two hundred years, Vidler suggests that the discourse of the uncanny cuts through such stylistic categories as romanticism, modernism, and postmodernism, and enables a more productive understanding of modernity with its related experiences of estrangement, alienation, nostalgia, etc.

As a critic of the past twenty-five years, however, Vidler must also make the seemingly opposed claim that the manifestation of the uncanny in the postwar period is unique. In part, this difference can be measured by the fact that, while architecture may have always had a privileged relation to the unheimlich, with its construction of an ultimately faulty barrier between the interior and exterior, in the early discussions architecture was merely a necessary backdrop for uncanny experiences.

In recent years, however, architecture has become a self-conscious and critical endeavor open to the insights of other forms of knowledge. Beginning as early as in the case of American architecture, the techniques of the historical avant-garde were almost completely repressed with the final institutionalization of high modernism immediately after the war.

In his own attempt to advance a criticism and theory that could support neo-avant-garde experimentation and dispute the Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
