    "Journalisten scheuen die Künstler aber auch unter ihren Pseudonymen"

    Journalists shy away from the artists also under their screen names?


    The text is about a secret art group.... I don't understand the construction of this sentence. I don't see why the journalists would shy away or why journalists have screen names....

    It's the other way round: "die Künstler" is the subject of the sentence (=> topicalization).

    I suspected that from context. I've seen this done in German before, but only when the case is obvious.

    Thanks.
