Munich, City of Artists, 1880s–1937: a story of German Modernism
Dr Niccola Shearman and Emily Christensen
Date: Saturday 10 October
Time: 11:00 – 16:00; registration from 10.30
Cost: £50 (£45 for concessions)
Munich, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, was home to an extraordinary collection of innovative artistic voices. First the artists of the Secession, and later Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Gabriele Mϋnter and others challenged the conservative artistic status quo and introduced radically new art. This Saturday Study Day will examine the story of Modernism as it unfolded in Munich, from its rise in the 1880s until its ultimate demise under the vitriol of the Nazi party’s exhibition of Degenerate Art in 1937. In addition to a broad overview, the day will include two case studies: one that looks at the role and status of women artists in Munich; and the other that examines the significance of Primitivism among the Blaue Reiter artists.
Our speakers: Dr Niccola Shearman and Emily Christensen
Places are limited and advance booking is required. £50 (£45 concs.), includes refreshments.
Attendance is free for participants of Dr Shearman’s Munich Study Tour
