New Objectivity and August Sander

Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris | May 11 to September 05, 2022

This multidisciplinary exhibition provides an overview of art and culture in the Germany of the Weimar Republic (1918-1933), which gave rise to the artistic movement of the New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit). In addition to painting and photography, the project brings together architecture, design, film, theatre, literature and music.

At the centre of the exhibition is August Sander's work People of the 20th Century, which is particularly influential for the history of photography, and reflects the upheavals and distortions of German history and society.
