About the Authors
  • Within a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary discussion, The Divided Heritage considers twentieth-century German art and culture in its social and political context. The collected essays are arranged in four heavily illustrated groups, each drawing attention to the cultural continuities and disjunctures of the period. The first set looks at the issue of cultural disruption, on a social, political and conceptual level; the second discusses the effect of representation of gender on the continuity of cultural history; the third highlights the variants within historical patterns of patronage and the final section considers the centrality of the city in German social and cultural theory and its place in the world of visual representation.
