documenta and its Double

In her illustrated presentation, ‘documenta and its Double,’ Liza Weber will test the well-worn hypothesis of the first documenta exhibition of 1955 as a rehabilitation of modern art once deemed “degenerate” under the National Socialist regime. Combining the methodologies of provenance research and oral history, her work traces both the trajectory and living memory of modernism in Germany throughout the twentieth, and indeed twenty-first, century. Her presentation at the ZI will include a screening of a short documentary-film that she produced while at the Royal College of Art, London.

 

Liza Weber is a PhD candidate at the Centre for German-Jewish Studies, University of Sussex, where she was awarded the ‘Alfred Bader Scholarship in Modern Jewish History and Culture’.
