What Is Considered to Be “Genuinely Jewish”
While examining three artifacts originating in Viennese Modernism, this essay focuses on the self- and external perceptions of Jews within mainstream society at the threshold of the 20th century. A discursive approach of a specifically Jewish ideal of social belonging — concerning authenticity and associated stratification — provides a framework for understanding the artistic contexts of the three artifacts. This contextualization serves as a contemporary mirror for the questioning of what is considered to be "genuinely Jewish.”
