Edward Hopper’s images, which frequently place seemingly forlorn figures in empty spaces, symbolize a central feeling of the modern era. This talk investigates the reasons behind this phenomenon, and not only examines the motifs and formal aspects of Hopper’s paintings, but also compares them to other American modern artists. Winfried Fluck is professor emeritus for American culture at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at the Free University of Berlin and co-director of the Futures of American Studies Institute at Dartmouth College in the USA. American painting is one focus of his research and teaching.
