Abstract:

During the Weimar Republic, Berlin was a cauldron of hedonism; uncensored and untiring, the city indulged in every form of sex. And just as Berlin was open-minded toward all things erotic, it was also tolerant toward avant-garde artistic expression, liberal political dialogue, and wide-ranging scientific inquiry. In tracing the sociopolitical history of the era, this program spotlights key figures of those heady times, including Claire Waldoff, Marlene Dietrich, Anita Berber, Magnus Hirschfeld, Christopher Isherwood, Rudolf and Speedy Schlichter, George Grosz, Bertolt Brecht, and Kurt Weill. In addition, insightful commentary is provided by authors Anton Gill (A Dance Between Flames: Berlin Between the Wars), Alexandra Richie (Faust's Metropolis: A History of Berlin), Mel Gordon (Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin), and Barbara Ulrich (The Hot Girls of Weimar Berlin), as well as by music critic and journalist Axel Bruggeman, film historian Werner Sudendorf, and others.
