“’The Rhythm of Our Time is Jazz’: Popular Entertainment during the Weimar Republic” examines the widespread interest and influential role held by American ragtime and jazz music throughout German culture from the 1910s until World War II. Many artists incorporated minstrel imagery as a potent indicator of their outsider status during this period or used new materials and rhythmic forms inspired by jazz to fully reflect the technological achievements and dynamic environment of the modern metropolis.
