The mad square: modernity in German art 1910–37 - curator introduction

Aug. 15, 2011

Expressionism, Dada and Bauhaus were just some of the movements that exploded onto the turbulent social landscape in Germany at the start of the 20th century. And, for a short but heady time, Berlin became the cultural and entertainment capital of the world. Art Gallery of NSW curator Jacqueline Strecker introduces the exhibition 'The mad square: modernity in German art 1910-37’, which brings together over 200 diverse works, including film, theatre, photography, decorative arts and design as well as painting.
