George Grosz (1893-1959) is considered one of the most important political-satirical artists of the Weimar Republic - Grosz was accused three times of insulting the Reichswehr, attacking public morality and blasphemy. In the exhibition, his portraits provoking the contemporaries are presented in detail.
But also the rather unknown photographs Grosz, which reflect his impressions and experiences during the passage to America and in New York, look into the view. A lesser-known facet of the artist is also presented with his work as a costume and stage designer. It mainly shows works from two private collections that are otherwise not accessible to the public. Grosz, whose work would be inconceivable without the 1918 Revolution and the turmoil of the Weimar Republic, is presented as one of the most important Berlin artists of the 1920s.
His works in Berlin are a reflection of the political and social issues of the time. And even in New York exile, the political events that emanate from Berlin under National Socialist rule, could not let him go.
