Description: Focusing on the tumultuous years of the Weimar Republic, this class will examine art and film in Germany from the birth of Expressionism through the end of the Nazi dictatorship. Topics covered will include Expressionism, Dada, the Bauhaus, and Fascist aesthetics. Particular attention will be paid to the relations between aesthetics and politics and art and everyday life, all central concerns of the art and criticism of the period. For each lecture, Graduate Students will be assigned additional readings. They will write an annotated bibliography of all these readings to be turned in at the end of the semester. We will meet for an additional every two or three weeks to discuss interpretive and methodological problems and ideas associated with the readings. Graduate students will be expected to complete all the requirements of the class in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester. Cross-list: HART 398, GERM 339. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 596 if student has credit for HART 398.
