Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Behind the Iron Curtain, against all odds, photography secretly flourished as an art in the German Democratic Republic. Karl Gernot Kuehn writes eloquently of East Germany from 1945--four years before the socialist nation was officially carved out of the former German Reich--to 1989, when the dictatorship fell and forty years of isolation ended. Analyzing how Walter Ulbricht and Erich Honecker harnessed the power of photography to shape and reflect the paradigmatic Marxist state, Kuehn reveals how this very same process inadvertently helped nurture individual creativity and the "silent revolution" of the 1980s. Caught offers the first in-depth appraisal of the artistic, social, and political evolution of the GDR through the eyes of the participating photographers. It is an intimate portrayal of a people "caught" in the conflicting dictates of ideology, artistic oppression, a troubled national past, and basic human desires.

Inhaltsangabe: Behind the Iron Curtain, against all odds, photography secretly flourished as an art in the German Democratic Republic. Karl Gernot Kuehn writes eloquently of East Germany from 1945—four years before the socialist nation was officially carved out of the former German Reich—to 1989, when the dictatorship fell and forty years of isolation ended. Analyzing how Walter Ulbricht and Erich Honecker harnessed the power of photography to shape and reflect the paradigmatic Marxist state, Kuehn reveals how this very same process inadvertently helped nurture individual creativity and the "silent revolution" of the 1980s.

Caught offers the first in-depth appraisal of the artistic, social, and political evolution of the GDR through the eyes of the participating photographers. It is an intimate portrayal of a people "caught" in the conflicting dictates of ideology, artistic oppression, a troubled national past, and basic human desires.

Umschlagtext: "This absolutely compelling analysis . . . situates the individual artists well in their milieu. The descriptions . . . are consistently forceful, persuasive, and highly informative."--Jean Quataert, coeditor of Connecting Spheres
