In modern western history, the cultural and social developments of modernism have long been associated with Jews. For conservative groups this has been a negative association: the perceived breakdown of traditional norms was blamed on Jewish influence in politics, society, and the arts. Throughout Europe, Jews were viewed as carriers of industrialized and cosmopolitan developments that threatened to undermine a cherished way of life. This anthology speaks to this issue through the lens of modernist visual production including paintings, posters, sculpture, and architecture. Essays by scholars from the U.S. and Israel confront the contradictory impulses that modernism's interaction with Jewish culture provoked. Discussing how religion, class, race, and political alignments were used to provide attacks on modern art, the scholars also comment on visual responses to anti-semitism and the mainstream success of artists in the U.S. and Israel since World War II.

"The collection is an ambitious undertaking in its breadth. . . which can--and hopefully will--inspire further studies and similar collaborations."-- "German Studies Review" Even visual artists whose materials do not include text often signal the Jewishness of their work through their vocabularies: including images of a bearded hasid, a six-pointed star, or of Hebrew letters in paintings, sculptures, or architectural designs is the equivalent of having a character speak untrammeled mameloshn. Yet can't a Jew eschew such obvious symbols and instead somehow paint with a Jewish accent? Scholars tackle questions along these lines in Jewish Dimensions in Modern Visual Culture: Antisemitism, Assimilation, Affirmation, a collection of essays that attempt to explain how those strange bedfellows, Jewishness and modernism, managed to get along.-- "Tablet Magazine" German Studies Review" Tablet Magazine" The collection is an ambitious undertaking in its breadth. . . which can and hopefully will inspire further studies and similar collaborations.
