Join us on Saturday, June 24 at Tate Liverpool for an exclusive private view of Portraying a Nation: Germany 1919-1933, including a light breakfast followed by an introductory talk and the opportunity to enter the exhibition before it opens to the public
Experience the glamour and misery of Weimar Germany through Portraying a Nation which presents the ‘real faces’ of Germany during the interwar years, as seen through the eyes of painter Otto Dix (1891–1969) and photographer August Sander (1876–1964). The period was one of experimentation and innovation across the visual arts, during which both artists were concerned with representing the extremes of society, from the flourishing cabaret culture to intense poverty and civilian rebellions.
Featuring more than 300 paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, Portraying a Nation combines two exhibitions: Otto Dix: The Evil Eye, which includes paintings and works on paper that explore Dix’s harshly realistic depictions of German society and brutality of war, and Artist Rooms: August Sander, which presents photographs from Sander’s best known series People of the Twentieth Century, his attempt to document the German people.
During your visit you can also enjoy Tate Liverpool's free displays. Explore space and significant scientific discoveries in Aleksandra Mir: Space Tapestry, or uncover the surprising links between Tracey Emin and William Blake through the In Focus display.
