James Young:

At Memory's Edge: After-images of the Holocaust in Contemporary Art and Architecture - hardcover

2000, ISBN: 0300080328

[SR: 894746], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780300080322], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], 2000-06-01, Yale University Press, At Memory's Edge is an ambitious and provocative collection of essays whose topics range from Art Spiegelman's Maus books to, most notably, the Berlin Holocaust memorial. Author James E. Young, an American professor of English and Judaic Studies, was the only foreigner and the only Jew on the German committee that selected the design for the memorial. His behind-the-scenes account of this project's development offers sophisticated answers to some very difficult questions. Young doggedly asks how Berlin can remember a group of people who are no longer at home there, and how Germany can, or should, remember the extermination of Jews that was once committed in that nation's name. The author's answers to such questions may appear excessively doctrinaire to some readers. Early in the book, for example, Young asserts that "memory-work about the Holocaust cannot, must not, be redemptive in any fashion". But his rationale for such sweeping pronouncements is very persuasive. The book is also lavishly illustrated with photographs and architectural drawings that will be of great value to all readers who accept the challenge that Young has assumed "the task of contemplating how to understand a formative historical tragedy of which first-hand memory is rapidly fading". --Michael Joseph Gross, 266298, Memorials & Monuments, 512758, Types of Architecture, 266240, Architecture, 91, Art, Architecture & Photography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 266898, History of Art & Architecture, 758890, Miscellaneous Biographies, 267815, Styles & Movements, 91, Art, Architecture & Photography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 267841, Subjects within Art, 267844, Erotica, 267845, Human Figures, 267847, Nature, Still Lifes & Landscapes, 267848, Nudes, 267850, Portraits, 267851, Religious Subjects, 91, Art, Architecture & Photography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271408, Holocaust, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 882480, Germany, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276580, War Crimes, 271411, Military History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277432, History & Culture, 277424, Judaism, 58, Religion & Spirituality, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Hardcover, First edition, ID: 1650588296

[EAN: 9780300080322], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Yale University Press, New Haven, CT], COLLECTIBLE, Architecture|General, History|Holocaust, Jacket, 248 pp., illus., biblio., index; 25 cm. PRESENTATION COPY. Signed by the author, with a personalized inscription. Spine slightly rolled at the crown. First Edition, First Printing. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "How should Germany commemorate the mass murder of Jews once committed in its name? In 1997, James E. Young was invited to join a German commission appointed to find an appropriate design for a national memorial in Berlin to the European Jews killed in World War II. As the only foreigner and only Jew on the panel, Young gained a unique perspective on Germany's fraught efforts to memorialize the Holocaust. In this book, he tells for the first time the inside story of Germany's national Holocaust memorial and his own role in it. In exploring Germany's memorial crisis, Young also asks the more general question of how a generation of contemporary artists can remember an event like the Holocaust, which it never knew directly. Young examines the works of a number of vanguard artists in America and Europe -- including Art Spiegelman, Shimon Attie, David Levinthal, and Rachel Whiteread -- all born after the Holocaust but indelibly shaped by its memory as passed down through memoirs, film, photographs, and museums. In the context of the moral and aesthetic questions raised by these avant-garde projects, Young offers fascinating insights into the controversy surrounding Berlin's newly opened Jewish museum, designed by Daniel Libeskind, as well as Germany's soon-to-be-built national Holocaust memorial, designed by Peter Eisenman. Illustrated with striking images in color and black-and-white, At Memory's Edge is the first book in any language to chronicle these projects and to show how we remember the Holocaust in the after-images of its history. / James E. Young, professor of English and Judaic studies at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, is also the author of The Texture of Memory, published by Yale University Press, which won the National Jewish Book Award." - Publisher.

How should Germany commemorate the mass murder of Jews once committed in its name? James E. Young -- the only foreigner and the only Jew to serve on the German commission to select a design for a national Holocaust memorial -- tells the inside story of this enormously controversial project. Young also inquires deeply into the moral and aesthetic questions surrounding artistic representations of the Holocaust produced by young artists who themselves did not experience it.
