The Literature of Interior Spaces. Private homes, hotels, factories, offices and prisons: this semester, we will explore interior spaces as cultural and political subjects in pre-WWII 20th c. literature and art- from Kafka's legal attics to Grete Lihotzky's rationalized domestic architecture, and from Kracauer's and Murnau's hotel lobbies to the office-worlds in the prose of the New Objectivity. In addition to reading fiction and poetry, we will discuss texts by authors associated with the Frankfurt School, explore works by Bauhaus artists and architects and watch Weimar-era Kammerspielfilme ("chamber dramas"). This course is taught in English.
