‘New Objectivity’ in Venice

At Museo Correr, Venice, for the excellent exhibition, ‘New Objectivity. German Art in the Weimar Republic, 1919 – 1933’. A fascinating collection of paintings and photographs dealing with the aftermath of World War I, the disparity between the bourgeoisie and the victims of the war, and the tensions caused by the effects of industrialization and mechanization.
