Product details

Last Copies! ‘All that is solid melts into air – Notes on Tourism’ explores three controversial tourist destinations and cultural heritages located in Germany. The Buried Giant Lenin Memorial in Berlin, the Nazi holiday resort of Prora on the Baltic island of Rügen and the ‘Chalk Cliffs on Rügen’, painted by Caspar David Friedrich. Their identity, use and meaning have shifted radically over time. Writers from diverse disciplines were invited to contribute to the book, resulting in unexpected historical and critical perspectives on the relation between visual culture, leisure and memory politics.
