Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33

Monday 30 July 2018Sunday 14 July 2019

Work by German artists from between the wars including Otto Dix, George Grosz, Albert Birkle and Jeanne Mammen. Although the term magic realism is today associated with the literature of Latin America, it was originally used by the artist and critic Franz Roh in 1925 to describe a shift from the art of the expressionist era, towards cold veracity and unsettling imagery. In the context of growing political extremism, the new realism reflected a fluid social experience as well as inner worlds of emotion and magic.
