James E. Young:
At Memory's Edge: After-Images of the Holocaust in Contemporary Art and Architecture - hardcover

ISBN: 0300080328

[SR: 1994371], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780300080322], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], Yale University Press, James Young explores Germany's fraught efforts to memorialize the Holocaust, and also asks how late 20th century artists can remember an event they never knew directly but which is shaped through images in films, photographs and museums., At Memory's Edge is an ambitious and provocative collection of essays with topics ranging 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 committee that selected the design for the German 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 once committed in that nation's name. The author's answers to such questions may appear excessively dogmatic 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 a great value to 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, 173508, Architecture, 266162, Buildings, 1002, Criticism, 4539344011, Decoration & Ornament, 266160, Drafting & Presentation, 872404, Historic Preservation, 15762881, History, 1008, Individual Architects & Firms, 4539346011, Interior Design, 1057, Landscape, 1059, Project Planning & Management, 1048, Regional, 4539347011, Sustainability & Green Design, 720868, Urban & Land Use Planning, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 197504011, Themes, 5824913011, Erotica, 5824914011, Human Figure, 5824915011, Landscapes & Seascapes, 5824917011, Plants & Animals, 5824918011, Portraits, 1873, Religious, 15762841, Women in Art, 1064, History & Criticism, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 713036011, History, 1064, History & Criticism, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4954, Germany, 4935, Europe, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4994, Holocaust, 4992, Jewish, 5035, World, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491414, Europe, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468210, Architecture, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684260011, Art History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
