"The period between the end of World War I and Hitler's accession to power witnessed an unprecedented cultural explosion that embraced the whole of Europe but was, above all, centered in Germany. John Willett here provides a brilliant explanation of the aesthetic and political currents which made Germany the focal point of a new, down-to-earth, socially committed cultural movement that drew a significant measure of inspiration from revolutionary Russia and left-wing social thought, American technology, and the devastating experience of war."--Back cover.

"From 1933 to 1940, as the National Socialists assumed control of Germany and its art world, scores of dissenting artist and critics fled the Reich. Though the United States was often thought to be the haven of choice for these exiles, the greatest concentration of artists and critics first relocated to the nearby democratic capitals of Paris, Prague, and London. Through press and archival research, Modern German Art for Thirties Paris, Prague, and London examines the public activities of the four exile artists' groups and demonstrates the obstacles and competition each met trying to educate local and international audiences about recent German art. The story situates the artistic and critical endeavors of the exiles amid the turbulent international political events that led to World War II." "Modern German Art for Thirties Paris, Prague, and London will be of interest to scholars interested in the history of art, cultural historians and theorists, along with Germanists and historians dedicated to the study of interwar Europe, the Third Reich, and exiled populations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Cult of Art in Nazi Germany

The Cult of Art in Nazi Germany

It could be said that this book is a highly convincing documentation of Walter Benjamin s famous statement that fascism is the aestheticisation of politics.

The Cult of Art in Nazi Germany presents a new interpretation of National Socialism, arguing that art in the Third Reich was not simply an instrument of the regime, but actually became a source of the racist politics upon which its ideology was founded. Through the myth of the "Aryan race," a race pronounced superior because it alone creates culture, Nazism asserted art as the sole raison d'être of a regime defined by Hitler as the "dictatorship of genius." Michaud shows the important link between the religious nature of Nazi art and the political movement, revealing that in Nazi Germany art was considered to be less a witness of history than a force capable of producing future, the actor capable of accelerating the coming of a reality immanent to art itself.
