Kunstbibliothek, Berlin

– 12 December 2014



Until 1914 - with the outbreak of the First World War - industrialisation experienced rapid development in speed, mobility and production. The advertisements and publicity that originated at that time and that are characterised by a new understanding of the art of the avantgarde – manifestos, magazines and photographs, as well as artists’ private letters – are currently on display in a themed two-part exhibition in Berlin. 


The first part of the exhibition gives an insight into the “artistic upheaval into the modern age before the First World War” with its works in poster art, commercial art and book design created by Jules Chéret, Ludwig Hohlwein, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Lucian Bernhard and the Beggarstaff brothers. The second focus of the exhibition in the “Rebellion of the avant-garde 1909-1918” broaches the issue of the “upheaval in terms of media history in art around 1900”. Both parts are supported by musical performances, readings and lectures on the European art movement of the era.
