What is European Art? Treasure Hunting in Berlin | FU-BEST Digital Lecture Series

Oct 28, 2020

This lecture takes you on a virtual tour to some of the most splendid art collections in the world: Using the treasure troves of Berlin’s many museums and galleries, we will give you a survey of the visual arts in Central Europe from the rise of modernism around 1900 to the present after postmodernism. Focusing on German art, this session will also illustrate the relationship of the arts to society and to philosophical ideas of their respective times. One of the questions that keep coming up in this relationship deals with the role of art for a national self-understanding. So discover some unique works of art with us and find out why they are relevant to European and German identity.
