Abstract:

"The mad square: modernity in German art 1910-37 explores three decades of German modernism, leading up to and following the turbulent Weimar Republic. From the 1910s until the late 1930s, Berlin and other German cities were vibrant centres of creativity and innovation from which avant-garde art movements blossomed: Expressionism, Dada, Constructivism, Bauhas and New Objectivity. The movements were linked by artists' shared interest in radical exprerimentation across all areas of the visual arts including painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography, film and the decorative arts. Over 200 works by leading artists of the period--including Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, John Heartfield, Hannah Hoch, Karl Hubbuch, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Kathe Kollwitz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, August Sander, Christian Schad, Rudolf Schlichter and Kurt Schwitters--reveal the fascinating and complex ways in which artists responded to the forces of modernity and their passionate engagement with contemporary society, culture and politics."--Publisher description.
