11 June - 27 September 2010. After training as a painter, the cartoons of Karl Arnold (1883 - 1953) began appearing regularly in German publications, and in 1907 he joined the staff of Simplicissimus.

His drawing style was assured and he documented a wide variety of characters from life in Berlin at that time. Arnold played with fire when his magazine's stance against right-wing nationalism was amplified by his buffoon-like portrayals of Adolf Hitler.

However, when the Nazis gained power Arnold started producing pro-Hitler cartoons. His artistic goal was 'to capture the bizarreness of this crazy city'; with this exhibition of 130 original drawings, the Berlinische Galerie allows visitors to enjoy Arnold's legacy.

Wed-Mon: 10.00-18.00. Closed Tuesday.
