The cultural spaces of Siegfied Kracauer: the many surfaces of Berlin
John Allen, pages -

Abstract

Allen explores Kracauer’s phenomenological treatment of Weimar Berlin and its character, suggestive of contemporaneous cultural change and the progression toward emergent mass cultural forms, defining Kracauer’s embrace of a world of ‘surfaces’. Allen addresses Kracauer’s view of the relationship between photography and the topography of urban life and evokes Kracauer’s sensibility to explore Berlin today and its urban montage, underpinned by a new logic of superficiality and seduction.
