Ranked as one of the most popular German authors and playwrights of the 20th century, Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) became globally known even in life, and his texts, artistic ideas and experiments have been around ever since. In Berlin, “the city that makes clever”, he witnessed the turbulent times of the Weimar Republic before fleeing the National Socialists in 1933, and it was here that he saw the founding of the GDR after returning from exile in 1948. The socio-political incidents and developments of these years strongly influenced his life and work, which in turn allow us to relive the history and culture of Germany in general and Berlin in particular. Focusing mainly on Brecht’s poetry (i.a. Manual of Piety, Svendborg Poems, Buckow Elegies) and stage plays (i.a. The Threepenny Opera, Mother Courage and her Children) while also consulting autobiographical and theoretical writings, the bilingual seminar aims to trace possible connections between art, society and politics and to discuss aspects like artistic purpose and responsibility and political censorship. We will visit the Berlin Ensemble and Brecht’s former residence in midtown (with museum and archive) as well as a theatre performance as part of the course.
