Andrew Hemingway: "Georg Scholz: Dada Against Heimatkunst"
Andrew Hemingway was educated at the universities of Hull, East Anglia, and London. He taught full time in higher education from 1974 and joined UCL in 1987, becoming a reader in history of art in 1993 and professor in 2003. His on-going research interests include a comparative analysis of American and German realisms in the inter-war period, representations of the body in American art of the early Cold War years, and a collective project on the international history of Marxist art-historical work since the 1970s. Publications include his 1992 book Landscape Imagery and Urban Culture in Early Nineteenth-Century Britain (Cambridge University Press), his 2002 book Artists on the Left: American Artists and the Communist Movement, 1926-1956 (Yale University Press) and an edited volume Marxism and the History of Art: From William Morris to the New Left (Pluto Press 2006). He recently completed the manuscript of a book with the provisional title ‘Precisionism and Reification: American Art in the First Machine Age’.
