Sample text

Evans’ economical, factual images precede Agee’s 400 pages of crazed lyrical prose in Book Two, complete with an impassioned 50,000-word inventory of their houses–direct reporting on a scale without parallel. For, while Agee admired Evans’ sensitive work and his willingness to let his subjects pose themselves (which was an exercise in collaboration between artist and subject), he chose full self-expression, countering the restraint of Evans’ work with his copious subjectivity. Evans occasionally acknowledged his own presence, for example in one image that includes his shadow, but Agee inserted himself fully into the text, even becoming the book’s subject: 16 Chapter Two “I become not my own shape and weight and self, but that of each of them” (52), he explains, in Whitmanesque terms.

Chapter Three Creative Occupation: Collaborative Artistic Practices in Europe 1937–1943 Horace Brockington INTRODUCTION Acts of human collaboration became essential for survival at a time when the word collaborator had a double meaning. While this mode of artistic production typically requires a sacrifice of individual ego, during the German invasion of Europe in the 20th century proactive creative exchanges among artists could—and did—result in physical danger, imprisonment, and even death. This essay addresses the capability of art and artists to work collectively towards a goal beyond creative production, to make sense of self in a world filled with uncertainty and despair.

5 Few artists continued to produce art as a solitary, purely aesthetic activity. Forced to deal with the reality of current events, a complexity emerged in which their life conditions produced aestheticized politics and politicized art to educate a public. This was especially true of many of the German artists who aimed works to focus on the National Socialist government’s distortion of German culture as well as violation of human rights and racial prejudices. The situation for international Modernists had been limited since the 1937 Paris World Fair when galleries and publications were shut down; collectors sold works and the art market essentially collapsed.
