  In Art and Politics in the Weimar Period, John Willett provides a brilliant explanation of the aesthetic and political currents which made Germany the focal point of a new, down-to-earth, socially committed cultural movement that drew a significant measure of inspiration from revolutionary Russia, left-wing social thought, American technology /5(33). Above all, this art was ""cool""--an attempt to make a dispassionate assessment of modern reality. Willett argues, in fact, that the New Sobriety's existence in Weimar was bound up with the very conditions that led to Fascism and, thus, to its own downfall; and this is the sense in which his book is a study of the relation between art and politics.

A bit, yes. For one thing, cultural politics in Germany in the early part/first half of the 19th century -- when Heine's Winter's Tale was written -- varied widely: they were most repressive in Berlin and the rest of Prussia, but actually decidedly more liberal (though perhaps not "free" by today's standards) in, e.g., the various Thuringian, Saxon and Southwestern German states.
