Inventur—Art in Germany, 1943–55

Fri - Sun, Feb 9 to Jun 3, 10:00am - 5:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

The first exhibition of its kind, Inventur—Art in Germany, 1943–55 examines the highly charged artistic landscape in Germany from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s. Taking its name from a 1945 poem by Günter Eich, the exhibition focuses on modern art created at a time when Germans were forced to acknowledge and reckon with the atrocities of World War II and the Holocaust, the country’s defeat and occupation by the Allies, and the ideological ramifications of the fledgling Cold War.
