About the Event
Turbulent times can produce great art. Few twentieth artists demonstrate this better than George
Grosz (1893-1959). Born in Berlin, Grosz served in the First World War and became a leading
member of Berlin Dada and New Objectivity. There is simply no better chronicler of Weimar
Germany than Grosz who attacked the politics and the social disfunction of the period with biting
satire and mordant humour. Emigrating to the USA just before the rise of Nazism, Grosz escaped
from the German society he detested…and from the inspiration behind his greatest works.
