Susanne Vees-Gulani, Associate Professor of German in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, explores the representations of the 1945 destruction of the famous German baroque city in two new exhibition spaces – the Military History Museum of the German Armed Forces, redesigned by Daniel Libeskind, and the large-scale panorama installations by the architect Yadegar Asisi. Despite vastly different methodologies, both places favor an emotional experience over a factual analysis and in turn create opportunities for developing a new, possibly troubling, German nationalism.
