Experiment Weimar. A Cultural History of Germany 1918 – 1933
With its modernism influencing literature, drama, architecture, art, music and dance, the Weimar Republic can be seen as an era all of its own. It was not a crisis-ridden “interwar period”. It was an age marked in part by explosive development processes. The Weimar culture is more readily understood from the perspective of the First World War than from its end phase. It is extremely important for Germany’s cultural history and informs many aspects of how we approach the arts today.
