This lecture explores German culture during the period of the ‘Weimar Republic’, which saw an unprecedented number of groundbreaking innovations in modern art. In this age of dramatic social change and modernisation, artists experimented in painting, printmaking, photography, design, architecture, film and theatre, exploring a new kind of realism and inventing new visual languages to communicate their ideas.
