Expressionism: The Total Artwork
Leicester’s art gallery holds an impressive collection of German expressionist art.
This art movement was active before the First World War and reached its peak in 1920s Berlin.
Many of the artists, such as Ernest Neuschul, were radicals and formed the artists’ November Group—named after the German Revolution of November 1919.
It was cut short by the rise of Nazism, but has had a continuing impact on art and film.
An Idiosyncratic A to Z of the Human Condition
This exhibition tries to look at the human condition through different objects such as paintings, medical artefacts and manuscripts.
Each exhibit aims to tell a personal story that contributes to a general history of how we make sense of ourselves and the world we live in.
