Modern Times ‒ Pictures of the 1920s from the Lindenau Museum Altenburg

Museum für Neue Kunst

Otto Dix, Conrad Felixmüller, George Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz or Hanna Nagel reflect in their works life between the world wars - especially with a view to those people who were socially at the bottom. War experience and trauma, poverty and wealth, political radicalization, strike and revolution, sexuality and intoxication essentially determined the 1920s and 1930s; almost 100 years later, these themes are just as current and are being discussed anew. The exhibition shows works from Expressionism to New Objectivity from the Lindenau Museum Altenburg, supplemented by works from the museum's own collection.
