The focal point of this volume brings together case studies carried out by acclaimed experts on a subject little known in Germany - 20th century British realism. This collection examines exemplary oeuvres of individual artists, artistic tendencies, subjects as well as exhibition practices. Calls for a type of art criticism that accompanies realistic art projects a la John Berger and contemporaries are similarly illuminated. The contributors include James Finch, Brian Foss, Jacqueline Francis, Alex Potts, Brendan Prendeville, Rachel Sanders, Blake Stimson, Rebecca Zurier, Jost Hermand, Martin Papenbrock and Elke Wust-Kralowetz.
