The Quest for a “New Weimar”

The Quest for a “New Weimar”

1901 to 1918

(p.99) Chapter 4 The Quest for a “New Weimar”

Michael H. Kater

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the intellectuals' efforts to return Weimar to greatness, more specifically to create a ‘New Weimar’, between 1901 and 1918. It examines the role played by Harry Kessler and Henry van de Velde, particularly in the field of visual arts; Kessler's establishment of the Deutscher Künstlerbund; and Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche's connection to the Weimar group led by Adolf Bartels. It also considers the emergence of Heimatkunst (homeland art), which Bartels and his companions helped to generate and foster, and the anti-Semitism of Heimatkunst adherents.

Keywords:   visual arts, Weimar, Harry Kessler, Henry van de Velde, Deutscher Künstlerbund, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, Adolf Bartels, Heimatkunst, homeland art, anti-Semitism
