DADA Art Exhibition in the 1920s Berlin sim

[Originally posted on Tumblr, 23 January, 2014]

Berlin Museum of Art History (Berlin Kunsthistorisches Museum) in the 1920s Berlin sim now hosts a lovely and informative exhibition on DADA, an influential avant-garde art movement of the early 20th century.
Originating in Zurich around 1916, it quickly spread to other European centers, taking roots also in Berlin. It flourished there until the time of Nazism, when it was declared degenerate, along with several other art forms that excelled in Weimar Republic.

Exhibition includes art work, print and notecard of the DADA manifesto and you can also pick up a catalog containing more images. Its last few pages are empty. As the organizer of the exhibition, Wulfriðe Blitzen, explained, those are meant to serve as an invitation to remember those “who were persecuted or lost their lives for daring to illustrate their political views, social beliefs and religious leanings.”

The exhibition is on display until March 31, 2014. To visit, follow this SLurl.
