Kirchner and the Berlin Street

Brown Bag Lunch Lecture
Kirchner and the Berlin Street
October 2, 2008

This lecture provides an overview of Kirchner and the Berlin Street. The exhibition brings together German Expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's renowned Street Scenes series, created between 1913 and 1915. Considered by many to be the highpoint of Kirchner's career as a whole, this series dates from Kirchner's Berlin period, when the effect of life in the metropolis brought about a dramatic change in his work. Shown together for the first time in New York, these works exude the vitality, decadence, and underlying mood of imminent danger that characterized Berlin on the eve of World War I.

Lecturer Gretchen L. Wagner (MA, Williams College) is a curatorial assistant in the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books at MoMA.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Kirchner and the Berlin Street.
