Abstract

This chapter considers the montage aesthetics found in the literary magazines of German Expressionism. Focusing on the avant-garde’s responses to then-recent revolutions in modern media culture, the chapter connects readings of poems by Max Brod, Jakob van Hoddis, and Gottfried Benn to a discussion of contemporaneous essays on the new medium of film and a consideration of the material affordances of the magazines in which these texts appeared. Ultimately, it suggests that the technique of montage is at work on multiple levels of Expressionist artistic practice, appearing as a subject matter, as a compositional strategy, and as a formal and medial property of the avant-gardist literary magazine itself.
