In M�nchen baute der Kunsth�ndler G�nther Franke (1900-1976) ab 1923 erfolgreich ein Netzwerk aus K�nstlern, Sammlern und Museen auf und wurde zu einem wichtigen Galeristen und H�ndler von Max Beckmann und Ernst Wilhelm Nay. Bereits anl�sslich seines 25-j�hrigen Jubil�ums 1947 hob man lobend hervor, dass es in der NS-Zeit sein Verdienst gewesen sei, die Werke von als "entartet" geltenden K�nstlern bewahrt zu haben. Sp�ter titelte man, Franke sei "kein Mann der Anpassung" gewesen Diese Publikation leistet einen Beitrag zur Geschichte des Kunsthandels in M�nchen bis in die 1970er Jahre, insbesondere aber zu Frankes Anf�ngen, aber auch zu seinen bisher unbekannten Verstrickungen in der NS-Zeit, sie beleuchtet ihn als Privatsammler und als Stifter von Werken Max Beckmanns an die Bayerischen Staatsgem�ldesammlungen.

Die Frage nach dem Umgang mit »treuhänderisch« verwahrtem Kulturgut bzw. Raubgut betrifft Bibliotheken, Archive und Museen sowie jüdische Institutionen. Während die gängigen Erwerbungsarten in Kultureinrichtungen wie Kauf, Geschenk, Pflicht und Tausch übliche Geschäftsvorgänge darstellen und im Rahmen der NS-Provenienzforschung kritisch untersucht werden, sind mit Auflagen versehene Übernahmen und Verwahrungen wie Treuhand, Leihgaben oder Legate, aber auch staatliche Zuweisungen im Kontext von NS-Kulturgutraub und staatlichen Transformationsprozessen bislang wenig beachtet worden. Neben der Darstellung der bisherigen Handhabung »treuhänderisch« übernommener Kulturgüter werden hier strukturierte Vorgehensweisen sowie die Anforderungen, Chancen und Grenzen eines adäquaten Umgangs interdisziplinär erörtert.

Painting to the Point

This dynamic new appraisal of the painter Gabriele M�nter looks beyond her association with Wassily Kandinsky and completely reevaluates her art on the anniversary of her 140th birthday. Gabriele M�nter was a photographer before she was a painter, taking her first photos around 1900 during her stay in the United States. She started painting soon after and never stopped-- working on her art almost every day for the rest of her life. She was an open-minded artist who embraced experimentation, but because her oeuvre has generally been studied through the narrow lens of her relationship with Kandinsky many of her accomplishments have lingered in obscurity. M�nter's paintings from the "Blue Rider" years and her association with German Expressionism have often been the focus for evaluations of her work, yet M�nter's art was far more multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse. This book seeks to offer a broader perspective on M�nter's creative output. It examines M�nter's oeuvre in all its richness: from classic genres such as portraits and landscapes to interiors, abstractions, and her works of "primitivism."

From Samoa with Love?

Retracing the Footsteps

Völkerschauen, or human ethnological displays, promised to take visitors “around the world for fifty pennies,” providing a form of popular entertainment in late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century Germany while also satisfying deepening European curiosities about exotic peoples and places. For the Samoans—many of high social status—who traveled to Germany to take part in völkerschauen, the displays were seen as an opportunity to establish political ties with the colonial power. From Samoa With Love? traces the history of these displays of “typically” Samoan forms of music, dance, and weapons performance that could be found in amusement parks, zoos, and even at Oktoberfest. Recovering both German and Samoan interests in völkerschauen between 1895 and 1911, the book looks at how these Samoan ethnological displays shaped the ways German people saw foreign cultures. Echoes of völkerschauen, for instance, came to be seen in many works of art of the period, from Ludwig Kirchner’s woodcut Rowing Samoan Woman to Erich Heckel’s Samoan Dance, paintings and prints by the Samoan-descended artist Michel Tuffery, and works by artists of the Dresden-based collective Die Brücke. Featuring interviews with descendants of former völkerschauen performers, the detailed reconstruction in From Samoa With Love? goes well beyond clichés to present a nuanced picture of the phenomena of Samoan ethnological displays.

The Female Nude

Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes `art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status? The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art, and by exploring the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography. The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene.

The iConnected Parent

Staying Close to Your Kids in College (and Beyond) While Letting Them Grow Up

"Just let go!" That’s what parents have been told to do when their kids go to college. But in our speed-dial culture, with BlackBerries and even Skype, parents and kids are now more than ever in constant contact. Today’s iConnected parents say they are closer to their kids than their parents were to them—and this generation of families prefers it that way. Parents are their children’s mentors, confidants, and friends—but is this good for the kids? Are parents really letting go—and does that matter? Dr. Barbara Hofer, a Middlebury College professor of psychology, and Abigail Sullivan Moore, a journalist who has reported on college and high school trends for the New York Times, answer these questions and more in their groundbreaking, compelling account of both the good and the bad of close communication in the college years and beyond. An essential assessment of the state of parent-child relationships in an age of instant communication, The iConnected Parent goes beyond sounding the alarm about the ways many young adults are failing to develop independence to describe the healthy, mutually fulfilling relationships that can emerge when families grow closer in our wired world. Communicating an average of thirteen times a week, parents and their college-age kids are having a hard time letting go. Hofer’s research and Moore’s extensive reporting reveal how this trend is shaping families, schools, and workplaces, and the challenge it poses for students with mental health and learning issues. Until recently, students handled college on their own, learning life’s lessons and growing up in the process. Now, many students turn to their parents for instant answers to everyday questions. "My roommate’s boyfriend is here all the time and I have no privacy! What should I do?" "Can you edit my paper tonight? It’s due tomorrow." "What setting should I use to wash my jeans?" And Mom and Dad are not just the Google and Wikipedia for overcoming daily pitfalls; Hofer and Moore have discovered that some parents get involved in unprecedented ways, phoning professors and classmates, choosing their child’s courses, and even crossing the lines set by university honor codes with the academic help they provide. Hofer and Moore offer practical advice, from the years before college through the years after graduation, on how parents can stay connected to their kids while giving them the space they need to become independent adults. Cell phones and laptops don’t come with parenting instructions. The iConnected Parent is an invaluable guide for any parent with a child heading to or already on campus.

If you are interviewing with a company, you are likely qualified for the job. Through the mere action of conducting the interview, the employer essentially implies this.

Because there are three reasons you actually get the job—none of which are your qualifications— and, unfortunately, you can only control one of them. iNTERVIEW INTERVENTION creates awareness of these undetected reasons that pose difficulty for the job-seeker and permeate to the interviewer, handicapping the employer’s ability to secure the best talent. It teaches interview participants to use effective interpersonal communication techniques aimed at overcoming these obstacles. It guides job-seekers through the entire interview process to ensure they get hired. It teaches interviewers to extract the most relevant information to make sound hiring decisions. iNTERVIEW INTERVENTION will become your indispensable guide to: ?

Share compelling stories that include the six key qualities that make them believable and memorable. ? Respond successfully to the fourteen most effective interview questions. ?
