In a divided Germany, artists in both East and West reacted to the war’s political legacies by revisiting abstraction and realism in new national and international contexts, creating a wide range of powerful artworks. This profusely illustrated book, with seventeen major essays by art historians and cultural critics, is the first comprehensive look at the full extent of postwar German art.
