Abstract (English)

Watson prefaces his discussion of the photo-montage murals of Klein with observations of recent political events in Germany and Eastern Europe. He contrasts the subjectivity of her imagery with current photographic ideologies, and points out the artist's purpose in attacking historic forgetfulness (amnesia, nostalgia) and denouncing various modernist utopias. Biographical notes. 81 bibl. ref.
