"Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" accompanies a major museum exhibition dedicated to Weimar Berlin. Through paintings, drawings, architecture, film, fashion, and music, the exhibition explores diverse topics, including the rise of the spectacle; the prevalence of advertising; the rise of the New Woman; and the intersection of art and power.
Around 400 works are on display, organized into five thematic groupings: The Birth of the Republic; A New Utopia; The New Woman; The Crisis of Modernity; and Into the Abyss.
The application features audio interviews with the exhibition's curator, Dr. Olaf Peters, and commentary from Renée Price, director of Neue Galerie New York.
