Surreal Objectivity. Works from the 1920s and 1930s from the Nationalgalerie

13 Oct-23 April. Drawings from its collection of paintings from the period between the two world wars, the Nationalgalerie juxtaposes New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit) and Surrealist works.

Both movements developed at around the same time: Surrealism in France in 1924, the Neue Sachlichkeit in Germany in 1925.

Although distinct in origin, the two movements shared some common ground, both representing a quest for new holistic world view, and both were a response to the avant-garde scene which came to an end with the outbreak of world war one.

The exhibition presents a broad spectrum of works by artists such as Otto Dix, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Alexander Kanoldt and Christian Schad.

Tues-Fri 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-20.00. Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00.
