  • What was Europe?
  • In 1950 the Haus der Kunst opened the exhibition »Werke Europäischer Plastik« (Works of European Sculpture). This first European show after the Second World War presented more than seventy works by thirty-five German and eleven French, English, Italian, and Swiss sculptors, including such prominent figures as Henry Moore and Aristide Maillol. Because it placed postwar German sculpture in the context of central artists of Western European modernism, this exhibition is regarded as an initial insight into how German sculptors saw themselves as artists in an international context five years after the National Socialist dictatorship ended.

    As part of the exhibition “What Was Europe” at the Kunsthaus Dahlem, the works from the Munich show that could be identified and lent to this exhibition have been assembled once again. The selection is focused on the German artists in the Munich exhibition.

    Artists exhibited:
    Ernst Barlach, Bernhard Bleeker, Hermann Blumenthal, Georg Brenninger, Alexander Fischer, Hermann Hahn, Philipp Harth, Bernhard Heiliger, Anton Hiller, Ludwig Kasper, Heinrich Kirchner, Richard Knecht, Moissey Kogan, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Gerhard Marcks, Ewald Mataré, Priska von Martin, Hans Mettl, Georg Müller, Edwin Scharf, Toni Stadler, Josef Wackerle, Hans Wimmer, Fritz Wrampe

    Opening: June 28, 2018, 7 p.m.
    June 29, 2018–June 2nd, 2019
