Berlin 1918–1933

As contemporary witnesses, artists accurately documented and commented on the political struggles and social change that were characteristic of the Weimar Republic. After a world war and period of revolution, Berlin became a glittering capital of pleasure during these years. Not unsympathetically, graphic artists traced the deep lines that the struggle for existence had left in the faces of people, as they hunted for happiness on the boulevards, in the bars or in the dimly lit dance halls.
This catalogue, containing works from the graphic arts collection of the Berlinische Galerie, features the drawings of many renowned artists whose draughtsmanship continues to shape our view of this era.
