The Ethics of Seeing : Photography and Twentieth-Century German History, Paperback / softback Book

The Ethics of Seeing : Photography and Twentieth-Century German History Paperback / softback

Edited by Jennifer Evans, Paul Betts, Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann

Part of the Studies in German History series

Description

Throughout Germany's tumultuous twentieth century, photography was an indispensable form of documentation.

Whether acting as artists, witnesses, or reformers, both professional and amateur photographers chronicled social worlds through successive periods of radical upheaval.

The Ethics of Seeing brings together an international group of scholars to explore the complex relationship between the visual and the historic in German history.

Emphasizing the transformation of the visual arena and the ways in which ordinary people made sense of world events, these revealing case studies illustrate photography's multilayered role as a new form of representation, a means to subjective experience, and a fresh mode of narrating the past.
