Antifascist Humanism and the Politics of Cultural Renewal in Germany

Antifascist Humanism and the Politics of Cultural Renewal in Germany by Andreas Agocs
English | July 14th, 2017 | ISBN: 1107085438, 9781107085435 | 220 pages | True PDF | 17.52 MB

Antifascism is usually described as either a political ideology of activists and intellectuals confronting the dictatorships of Hitler and Mussolini, or as a cynical tool that justified the Stalinist expansion of communism in Europe. Andreas Agocs widens our understanding of antifascism by placing it in the context of twentieth-century movements of 'cultural renewal'. He explores the concept of 'antifascist humanism', the attempt by communist and liberal intellectuals and artists to heal the divisions of Nazism by reviving the 'other Germany' of classical Weimar.
