Throughout the Cold War, the creation and reception of art in Germany was inseparably linked to divided political realities. Artists in East and West Germany redeployed the traditions of abstraction and realism in new national and international contexts, creating a wide range of powerful artworks, often responding to popular culture and technologies of reproduction.


This substantial and profusely illustrated book, with sixteen important essays by major art historians and cultural critics, is the first comprehensive look at the full extent of postwar German art. It includes work by Georg Baselitz, Willi Baumeister, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joseph Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Hermann Glöckner, Hannah Höch, Jörg Immendorf, Anselm Kiefer, Blinky Palermo, A. R.
