On the occasion of the exhibition "The Art of Society" at the Neue Nationalgalerie, a monthly series of events from September 2022 to July 2023 will discuss social processes of a turbulent time: the German Empire, colonial history, the First World War, the "Golden" Twenties, National Socialism as well as the Second World War and the Holocaust. Based on works by Max Ernst, Emil Nolde and Irma Stern, among others, art historians, artists, writers and experts from other disciplines will build a bridge from the historical exhibition to the here and now in lectures and discussions. Topics such as war, political extremism, poverty, feminism, and interculturalism are of current relevance for today's society.
The events will take place from September 2022 to June 2023, on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 pm. Admission is free. Afterwards, the exhibition can be visited until 10 pm.
The event series is made possible by the Ferdinand-Möller-Stiftung, Berlin.
