The Mad Square: Modernity in German Art 1910-37: Education Kit

The Mad Square: Modernity in German Art 1910-37: Education Kit

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will experiment with a wide range of artistic techniques as they experience 'Modernity in German Art, 1910-37' through this phenomenal Education Kit from the NGV. This Educator Kit explores the radically different ways in which artists responded to modern life in Germany during one of the most exciting and tumultuous periods in 20th-century history. It features works by leading artists of the era and shows the great diversity and innovation of key avant-garde movements – Expressionism, Dada, Bauhaus, Constructivism and New Objectivity – which emerged in a number of German cities. The broad range of art represented here is linked by a shared interest in creative freedom and experimentation. With their combination of satire, observation and emotion, these works offer powerful interpretations of the often traumatic transformation of modern society from an imperial system to a brave new era of democracy and technological change.
