German Art: From Impressionism to the Bauhaus
This course will offer an overview of German art from Impressionism to the Bauhaus. The 65-year period from 1880 to 1945 saw two world wars, revolutions, hyperinflation and art defamation, but also the Roaring Twenties, Berlin as an international metropolis, cabaret, and satire. Symbolism, Art Nouveau, Expressionism, Dada, New Objectivity, the Bauhaus and the Degenerate Art exhibitions, as well as the most important artists (including Max Liebermann, Franz von Stuck, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Ernst-Ludwig Kirchner, Gabriele Münter, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz, Jeanne Mammen, Anni & Josef Albers) and photographers (August Sander, Lotte Jacobi, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy) of these movements, will be discussed in illustrated lectures.
