People who have saved this event:



Taking Gerty Simon's striking image (c. 1929) of the sculptor Renée Sintenis as a starting point, this talk will explore Simon's photographs as part of a wider culture of the artistic face and body in Weimar modernity. Focusing on images of artists, Dr Deborah Lewer will consider the critical importance of the arts - photography and other media - gender and the shifting politics of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s.
