Synopsis:

This ambitious publication is the first book to thoroughly evaluate the photography that emerged during Germany’s geopolitical division from the 1950s to the 1980s. With richly illustrated and exhaustively researched analyses of photographic projects from East and West Germany, including exhibitions, photo-essays, private archives, and photo-books, Common Ground constructs a comparative perspective, examining how sequence, seriality, and repetition were mobilized to produce forms of solidarity and political agency.

Author Sarah James places German postwar photography in the context of Soviet, American, and European photographic developments; the specific cultural experiences of the Cold War; and the shifting politics of German identity. By reconsidering the relationship between divergent cultures of the pre-war Weimar period and the Cold War era, Common Ground prompts new readings of major figures such as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Karl Blossfeldt, and August Sander, as well as historically neglected figures such as Karl Pawek, Evelyn Richter, and Rudolf Schäfer. The result is a groundbreaking study of the political and pedagogical functions of documentary photography.

Book Description:

This is the first English-language book to examine post-war photography in both East and West Germany, contextualizing it in relation to the political cultures of both the Cold War and Weimar modernism.

Book Description Diese hervorragende Publikation beschäftigt sich umfassend mit der Fotografie, die während der deutschen Teilung in den 1950er bis 1980er Jahren entstand. Dabei lassen sich tiefgreifende Parallelen, aber auch Unterschiede in West und Ost feststellen. Die Autorin stellt die deutsche Nachkriegsfotografie in den internationalen Kontext fotografischer Entwicklungen in der Sowjetunion, Amerika und Europa. Sie untersucht die spezifischen kulturellen Erfahrungen des Kalten Krieges und die Folgen der gegenläufigen Ideologien. Dabei werden die Entwicklungen nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zu der fotografischen Kultur der Weimarer Republik in Beziehung gesetzt. So entstehen neue Lesarten des Werks von Bernd und Hilla Becher, Karl Blossfeldt und August Sander, aber auch von international bisher weniger beachteten Künstlerinnen und Künstlern wie Karl Pawek, Evelyn Richter und Rudolf Schäfer. Das Ergebnis ist eine bahnbrechende, international beachtete Studie zur deutschen Fotografie in West und Ost! (Text engl.) 20,5 x 26,5 cm, 280 S., 180 Abb., davon 10 farbig, Leinen.
