The exhibition Expressionism in Art and Film aims to shed new light on Expressionism across traditional genre boundaries and to show the mutual influences between the arts of painting, graphics and film. In painted and moving images, the exhibition shows how deeply Expressionism was permeated by the crises of its time and how it loudly gave expression to the rapid social upheavals.
Expressionism as a cultural revolutionary movement endeavored from the beginning to unite art and life, to abolish the separation of the arts and thus multiple talents became the ideal of the artists and the total work of art the desired goal.
