The End of Expressionism: Art and the November Revolution in Germany 1918-19

The End of Expressionism: Art and the November Revolution in Germany 1918-19

By Joan Weinstein

Weinstein explores the attitudes and organizations of artists and architects in Berlin, Munich, and Dresden in response to the tumultuous events associated with the end of WWI and the (failed) Revolution. She traces the initial excitement and zeal and then the disillusionment as utopian dreams were dimmed by social, political, and military realities as well as by inherent contradiction within the arts movements itself. The accompanying black and white illustrations, fascinating in themselves, directly depict textual themes.
