Dancing on the Volcano? The History of ‘Weimar Culture’
5 September 6:30 pm
The Wiener Library, London
Gerty Simon was both a chronicler and a representative of ‘Weimar Culture’ – that (in)famous flowering of progressive, modernist and cutting-edge arts and sciences in 1920s Germany, with Berlin at its centre. Dr Jochen Hung gives a critical introduction to the history of Weimar Republic and the era that shaped Simon and her sitters. He also traces the historical development of the notion of ‘Weimar Culture’ itself and the role émigrés like Simon played in it.
18.30 – 20.00
