Die Kunst der Gesellschaft 1900-1945 (The Art of Society) – New National Gallery
On the occasion of the exhibition “The Art of Society” in the Neue Nationalgalerie, a monthly series of events from September 2022 to July 2023 will discuss social processes of a turbulent time: the German Empire, colonial history, the First World War, the “Golden” Twenties, National Socialism as well as the Second World War and the Holocaust. Based on works by Max Ernst, Emil Nolde or Irma Stern, among others, art historians, artists, writers and experts from other disciplines build a bridge from the historical exhibition to the here and now in lectures and discussions. For topics such as war, political extremism, poverty, feminism or interculturality are of current relevance for our society today.
