In the fraught context of Germany between the end of the First World War and Hitler's rise to power, arguments about politics often turned into arguments about media, and vice versa. Artists and writers saw recently developed media such as film, radio, and the photographically illustrated magazine as transforming not only art, but also politics, sense perception, and the nature of subjectivity. In this course, we study the work of artists associated with Expressionism, Dada, and New Objectivity to understand the relations among aesthetics, politics, and new media at this pivotal moment.
