The exhibition ‘Berlin 1912-1932’ highlights this key period. With a Belgian view of the German art scene in mind, it pays special attention to an everyday reality that was marked by crisis and utopia, ravage and euphoria, misery and decadence. Known as the ‘Golden Twenties’, this gripping era comes alive again through more than 200 major artworks by Otto Dix, Raoul Hausmann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Kazimir Malevich, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Hannah Höch…
