11 November 1918. The Great War is finally over. A new era is about to start. Amidst the grief, disappointment and old fears, new dreams and hopes are now emerging but so too are new hatreds:
“Clash of Futures” explores the dramatic era of the 1920s and ’30s. The eight-part series follows the fates of extraordinary men, women and children from France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Austria, Sweden, Poland and the Soviet Union using their own diary entries, letters and memoirs. These are people drawn into the war by their convictions, who with their loves and decisions bring the history of Europe with all its contradictions to life.
In this context, the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique organize the exhibition Berlin 1912-1932, from October 5, 2018 to January 27, 2019.
Mythical and cosmopolitan place, Berlin in the twenties is then marked by the crisis, utopias, social change and decadence… in short the “Roaring Twenties”.
Focusing on the different links between Belgian and German art scene, this exhibition focuses in particular on the changes and utopias of society: the New Man and Woman, the New Objectivity, the New Construction, the New Vision…
The exhibition brings together more than 200 works from 50 international museums and private collections.
It is accompanied by a philosophical cabaret, alternative meeting places and artistic emulations in the spirit of the Berlin cabarets between the two Wars. Music, performances, debates, dance, workshops, poetry, cinema and readings shows…
