Between Images
Contemporary, artistic perspectives on post-war society

In the context of the exhibition Escape into Art? The Brücke Painters in the Nazi Period, the symposium Between Images explores contemporary artistic perspectives on the period after World War II. While the exhibition critically examines the artistic practice and scope of action of the Brücke artists from 1933 to 1949 for the first time, the invited artists of the symposium will use various media to approach the question of how it was possible to live together after the disillusionment of the lost war. Which moral and cultural voids or family gaps – reaching up to the present day – form the starting point of the artistic debate?
