Four Metaphors of Modernism

Herwarth Walden’s Der Sturm — the journal, gallery, performance venue, press, theatre, bookstore, and art school in Berlin (1910–1932) — has never before been the subject of a book-length study in English. In Four Metaphors of Modernism: From Der Sturm to the Société Anonyme (University of Minnesota Press, 2018), Jenny Anger, Grinnell professor of art history, positions Der Sturm at the center of the avant-garde and as an integral part of Euro-American modern art, theory, and practice.
