Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) earned his place in the canon of Modernist resistance as the “Oberwildling”
or enfant terrible of Viennese Modernism, a versatile master of image and word, the progenitor of a much-discussed doll fetish, and an anti-fascist defamed by the Nazis as “degenerate.” In short, he was the epitome of the radical, political artist.
Bringing together the latest research from the fields of art and cultural studies, contemporary history, literature and theater studies, gender studies, and biography research, this publication from the Oskar Kokoschka Center at the University of Applied Arts Vienna sheds new light on the life and work of this fascinating artist, and critically interrogates many of his most powerful narratives: Kokoschka revisited.
