What can you experience? 

A journey back to the roaring and explosive German art and cultural life of the 1920s.

The history behind the exhibition

After the First World War, German society during the Weimar Republic (1918-1933) lived through some years of deep poverty and political unrest, with a short-term flourishing of democracy and a strong culture of freedom. The period, which ends abruptly with the Nazi takeover of power in 1933, is characterized by both euphoric creation and a strong sense of impending dissolution. A "fragile" condition manifests and is reflected in a rich and varied cultural life.
