Berlin Metropolis: Portfolio of Prints

Be the first to review this product

Availability: In stock


As an imperial capital, Berlin was the site of violent political revolution and radical aesthetic innovation. After the German defeat in World War I, collage and montage were conceived as appropriate forms to destroy the traditional bourgeois concept of art. The Berlin Dadaists were reflecting upon the horrors of war—the trauma of a mechanized conflict—and the terrors of revolution and civil war. This new spirit was reflected in the artistic, political, and social statements of artists during the birth and formation of the fragile Weimar democracy.
