poster 19131913: The Brücke and Berlin

8 September - 2 December 2018
“We live in what might be the most exhilarating and exciting time ever to have been.” This is how the physician and publicist David Sarason describes the eventful year of 1913. For the artists of the Brücke, the year means the end of their cooperation. After quarrels surrounding the planned Chronik (Chronicle) of the artist group, the community dissolves in May 1913 in Berlin.
The exhibition 1913: The Brücke and Berlinopens up a kaleidoscope of this eventful year. Starting with the artists Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and Max Pechstein, the exhibition will trace the inspirations and narratives of the metropolis. Themes from the cabaret, circus, film and literature reveal the dense network in which the artists worked. Kirchners quick sketches of the lively Potsdamer Platz testify to the diverse experiences of the metropolis just as much as Heckels portraits of the film star Asta Nielsen and Schmidt-Rottluffs scenes from the cafés of the city.
