Andreas Huyssen is Professor of Germanic Studies and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. His work focuses on German literature from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, but also – and this is why he features among our portraits – he has elaborated a thought which, especially through art, literature and architecture, nourishes memory issues that were consequently developed in Cultural and Holocaust studies.
