George Grosz in Palma’s Caixaforum
Until September 2nd Caixaforum is hosting the exhibition From Berlin to New York (1912-1957), a collection of 100 cartoons with which the painter George Grosz portrayed the German society and politics of the Weimar Republic. The exhibition is organized chronologically into eight themed sections: The first years in Berlin, The First World War, Berlin Metropolis, Dadaism, Politics, Society in the Twenties, A migrant in New York and World War II.
Grosz is one of the most important German artists of the interwar period, ideologically committed; he used art as a weapon to criticize the precarious social situation arising from militarism, capitalism and the bourgeoisie.
'Ecce Homo', 1922.
