Vibrant Metropolis / Idyllic Nature. Kirchner – The Berlin Years
ZURICH • Kunsthaus • 10 February - 7 May 2017
|Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880 – 1938) is the master of Expressionism. Comprising some 160 works, Vibrant Metropolis / Idyllic Nature. Kirchner – The Berlin Years examines the young artist’s groundbreaking creative phase in Berlin from 1911 to 1917. It focuses on the dichotomy between his twin lives in the bustling capital city and on the tranquil Baltic Sea island of Fehmarn, where he spent the summer months from 1912 to 1914. The contrasts between these two places of inspiration could hardly be greater; yet the works from that period bear witness to Kirchner’s quest for a life remote from bourgeois norms, and for a new, primal form of expression.|
