Product Description:
This program is centered around Berlin where George Grosz, Hannah Höchand John Heartfield were the major proponents of the revolutionary Dada movement joining it with the very extreme left. While close by, the newly formed Bauhaus School founded by Walter Gropius and other significant architects and artists, inspired students to discard history and adopt new methods, materials and styles.
The film also stars Gerhard Richter who is Germany’s most esteemed living artist and examines late 20th century individuals such as the mystical Joseph Beuys. As the series comes to an end, the program also delves deeply into the modern architectural projects such as Reichstag Dome and Daniel Libeskind’s Jewish Museum and interacts with the city’s rising artists such as Bruno Bischofberger, the dealer who introduced Pop Art in Europe.
This exploration on German Art is concluded by a thorough investigation on the difficult and dark moments of 20th century. Adolf Hitler enjoyed great dominance as a completely failed and disappointed Artist. He once wanted to be an architect and his obsession with the 1000 year old Reich is well discussed. This series has some of the best exhibitions and projects related to some of the most extraordinary buildings. Hitler is said to have started a propaganda war against every kind of modern Art. This is said to have been a prelude towards the war on Europe. Germany was traumatized and undivided – a common question which came up was how would artists deal with the situation? Would everyone be able to cope with the situation?
