Text: Museumsportal Berlin | 2017-03-10

Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg | Schloßstraße 70 | 14059 Berlin
"The exhibition presents a broad spectrum of artists of the New Objectivity. They include famous names, such as Otto Dix, Christian Schad and Alexander Kanoldt, but also less well-known painters including Paula Lauenstein, Fritz Burmann and Curt Querner. Their pictures are juxtaposed with selected works by Max Ernst, René Magritte and other Surrealists, which draw our attention to aspects of the New Objectivity that are strange, mysterious and sometimes even absurd. We become aware of the movement's surreal element, which often gives the works, whose surface message is of a "return to order", their real underlying depth." Museumsportal Berlin
