This illustrated slide lecture by Dr Nina Lübbren (Anglia Ruskin University) looks at the ways in which sculpture shaped and responded to the extreme political shifts in early twentieth-century Germany. The era was marked by contradictions: from abstract war memorials to fascist monuments, from the representation of broken male bodies to the celebration of athletic nudes, from Expressionism to Classicism. Sculpture is particularly sensitive to regime changes because of its public and monumental character. You will gain insights into the fascinating and fantastic sculpture made in Germany during the Weimar years 1919-1932 and the equally fascinating dark history of Nazi sculpture 1933-1945.

Admission is by token, one per person, available at the Courtyard Entrance desk on a first-come first-served basis 30 mins before the talk. Assisted hearing sets are available.
