Sinopsis: Berlin: Culture and Metropolis was first published in 1991.Berlin’s recent history is uniquely representative of the major upheavals of the modern era. The city has been a capital under imperialist, democratic, fascist, and communist regimes; it has been devastated by war and has witnessed two revolutions. These changes often have come rapidly, drastically, and unexpectedly.Berlin: Culture and Metropolis includes essays on literature, poetry, film, cabaret, and the visual arts that illustrate how the relationship between the city and its inhabitants has been repeatedly renegotiated with each generation. Scholars in art history, film studies, literature, history, and sociology cover the period from the turn of the century to the present, writing on such topics as twentieth century cabaret, the celebration of the city’s 750th anniversary, and the cultural contributions of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, George Grosz, Alfred Döblin, Siegfried Kracauer, and Christa Wolf. These essays reveal the often uneasy relationships between twentieth-century Berlin and the culture these changes have produced.
About the Author: Charles W. Haxthausen is Robert Sterling Clark Professor of Art History in the Graduate Program in the History of Art at Williams College. He is the author of Paul Klee: The Formative Years and Modern German Masterpieces from the St. Louis Art Museum.
