Lotte Laserstein, a Jewish artist, believed that her painting, "Im Gasthaus" was “vermütlich zerstört“ (presumed destroyed) after her worked was labeled degenerate in Nazi Europe. Fortunately Lasertein was wrong. "Im Gasthaus" resurfaced at auction in 2012

Portrait of a Lady in front of the Pont des Arts (1930) by Werner Schramm (1898-1970). From The George Economou Collection

I had not heard of Schramm, so choose this fine detailed oil painting of his, imbued with European artistic tradition, created soon after a move to Paris. Yet there is still something disturbing about the lady's intense composure, hinting at turmoil or conflict within
.

It is not typical of the exhibition. Otto Dix, George Grosz, Rudolf Schlichter, Jeanne Mamman express the troubled, war-traumatised, yet questing spirit of the Weimar era more tellingly and powerfully. Many of their works were to appear in the Nazi's exhibition of 'Degenerate Art' a few years later, their creators exiled or silenced by the fascists

Schramm was not part of this. He lived with his family in Düsseldorf from the 1930s, eventually dying there in 1970, aged 72 .

#jeannemammen #weimargermany #1920s #magicrealism I really enjoyed the exhibition @tate and Jeanne Mammen’s work was new to me. Her drawings really are exquisitely realised and she has such a distinctive style. Love her needle-sharp wit and eye for the fashions of the time to reflect the flavour of Weimar Germany...

#illuminaticonfirmed! A bleeding all-seeing eye bears witness to the tyranny of the numerals themselves in 1923 Germany on this 1 Million Mark Notgeld banknote from Itzehoe. The unmistakeable Freemasonic imagery is accompanied here by the unbelievable addition of dual number 33s in the radar serial number. (For collectors, a "radar note" has a serial number that is the same backwards and forewards). The 33rd degree is the highest in Freemasonry.

(Italian only, my English is rusty and I'm slowly losing vocabulary due to desperately storing Polish, German and Russian words.)

Due anni di lingue sono passati e il mio corso preferito è comunque rimasto Letteratura italiana 1, fra alti e bassi. Il tema delle lezioni era "il grottesco nella meccanica del potere", e partiva dai presupposti de Gli anormali di Foucault per analizzare vari aspetti di questa meccanica lungo il corso della storia letteraria italiana.
All'epoca mi focalizzai su La presa di Macallè di Camilleri, trovando per l'appunto interessante il binomio tra sessualità e nazionalismo, ed ebbi modo di approfondire questa chiave di lettura dei totalitarismi grazie a testi come Eros e Priapo di Gadda, la storia della sessualità di Foucault e alcune opere della Jelinek.
Di recente, e in modi poco ortodossi (v. un'intossicazione da RuPaul's Drag Race e un quantitativo spropositato di interviste a Sasha Velour), mi è balenata l'idea di approfondire il medesimo discorso, applicandolo però alla Germania di Weimar e alla vivace sottocultura LGBT+, in fermento nonostante il totalitarismo e una società basata sul principio di inclusione. Inizia quindi un mio percorso di approfondimento sugli artisti degenerati, sugli outsider e sul loro impatto nella (sotto)cultura popolare di un mondo in declino e trasformazione.
Se l'argomento può interessare, fatemelo sapere e vedrò di approfondire il tutto postando anche altri testi, opere o saggi, che possano far parte di questo percorso.

Watercolour by George Grosz titled ‘A Married Couple’, 1930. Grosz was a Weimar-time painter most famously known for his depictions of Berlin nightlife during the liberal and hedonistic 1920s. He left Germany shortly before Hitler and the Nazis came to power, and only returned to Berlin in May 1959, two moths before his death.

3rd day of school! Taking a little study time on the terrace. Gorgeous day here in #Weimar
We've had two full days of masterclasses and music rehearsals so far! We started German class this morning and we begin staging the production this afternoon. Exciting things!

Checking out the new and FREE Art in Weimar Germany exhibition @Tate Modern. A show that movingly evokes the world of the wounded and the wicked in the inter-war years in Germany. A psychologically and physically damaged country finds its artistic feet again in the brittle sharpness of the works of Otto Dix, George Grosz, Max Beckmann et al. Here’s Prosper de Troyer’s Erik Satie (The Prelude) 1925 from the Cabaret section of the show. Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33 is on now and until July 2019. Free admission. #magicrealism #weimargermany #tatemodern #weimarrepublic #germanart #prosperdetroyer #eriksatie #cabaret #lifeisacabaret #freelondon #newexhibition

REVIEW - BABYLON BERLIN “...golden nightclub scenes of decadence and hedonism (think Great Gatsby-esque in its frivolity and opulence). Here the people seek refuge from the horror unfolding in the real world – this is where Champagne flows freely and where all sorts of indulgences can be found below ground.”

Magischer Realismus ✨
With an exhibition that explores an earlier period in the German #20thCentury, @Tate’s upcoming “Magic Realism Art in Weimar Germany: 1919-1933” (opens 30 July) highlights the interwar art of the #WeimarRepublic in a year-long, free display, which draws upon the rich holdings of the #GeorgeEconomouCollection. This fascinating exhibition addresses the complex paradoxes of the #Weimar era, in which liberalisation and anti-militarism flourished in tandem with political and economic uncertainty. The term #MagicRealism was created by artist #FranzRoh in 1925 and used to describe the marked shift from the anxious, emotional art of #GermanExpressionism to the cold and unsettling imagery made before the outbreak of #WWII.
The profound social and political disarray after #WWI brought about this stylistic shift. #Berlin particularly attracted a reputation for moral depravity and decadence in the context of the Empire’s economic collapse. The reconfiguration of urban life was an important aspect of the #WeimarerRepublik, as social spaces were fully reimagined: entertainment sites like the #cabaret and the #circus were highlighted by artists such as #OttoDix who recognised the power these realms of public fantasy possessed.
Image detail: #AlbertBirkle, “The Acrobat Schulz V”, 1921
🇩🇪 “#MagicRealismArt in #WeimarGermany”: 30 July 18 – 14 July 19
