In the twentieths, Otto Dix was the artist of Neue Sachlichkeit, the New Objectivity, par excellence. Painting in a very realistic, almost photographic style, he chose as subjects the poverty, violence, death, and war that he experienced as a soldier in World War I. After this terrible experience, he painted the famous triptych "The War". Dix staged the world as a play, a grotesque farce. But the form he chose to do so was based on the classical canon of beauty. Dix lived his life and served art, for he adhered to the age-old rule that the American painter Ad Reinhardt put in a nutshell: 'Life is life, and art is art'

Few painters are as strongly linked to the historical events and political catastrophes of twentieth-century Germany as Otto Dix (1891-1969). Born to a working-class family at the turn of the twentieth century, he hurled himself into the art world of the prewar era, and fought and drew on the front during World War I; after 1918, he gave that war perhaps the most honest face bestowed on it by an artist. During the Weimar Republic, Dix emerged as an enfant terrible, a dandy and an urban sophisticate, but he was also a respected professor and pedagogue, until he was driven from his position by the Nazis a few months after they came to power. Ostracized and threatened under the Nazi regime, Dix retreated to Lake Constance, where he began painting in the broader brushstokes that characterize his final phase

Der Begriff "Neue Sachlichkeit" wurde 1925 in der Kunsthalle Mannheim durch die gleichnamige Ausstellung von Gustav F. Hartlaub geprägt. Jetzt treten in Mannheim erstmals die beiden großen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten dieser Epoche - Otto Dix (1891-1969) und Max Beckmann (1884-1950) - in einen Dialog. Persönlich sind sie sich wohl nie begegnet, aber als Künstler treffen Dix und Beckmann gemeinsam den magischen Moment: wenn das Gewohnte plötzlich fremd wird und die Welt zum Mythos. Das Werk beider Maler zeichnet nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg und in Abgrenzung zum Expressionismus ein neuartiges Verhältnis zur Wirklichkeit aus. Dix ist mit seinem kritischen Superrealismus der Protagonist des sogenannten "linken Flügels" der Neuen Sachlichkeit, während Beckmann in der Balance von reiner Malerei und subjektiver Symbolik seine "transzendentale Sachlichkeit" entwickelt. 0Exhibition: Kunsthalle Mannheim, Germany (22.11.2013-23.03.2014) & Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Munich, Germany (11.04.-10.08.2014)
