Art from 1907-1960: German Art Between The Wars/Neue Sachlichkeit

These lectures introduce the viewer to German art and art history between World War I and World War II and examines the ways that competing political ideologies used art for its own purposes. Neue Sachlichkeit or the New Objectivity cast a cold sharp eye on Modern Germany’s hypocrisy, aggression. The National Socialists or Nazi Party won the chancellorship in 1933 and quickly used art and architecture as a means build the myth of a pure German people.
