Democracy and diversity. Launched in November 1918 during the revolution in Berlin, the association of artists known as the Novembergruppe quickly became an influential and innovative player in the art world and public arena of the Weimar Republic. With its pluralist philosophy, the association was open to every style in the visual arts, but also to architects, writers, composers and film-makers. A platform for freedom, democracy and diversity.

Between 1919 and 1932 the Novembergruppe mounted almost 40 exhibitions, published books and organised concerts, readings, parties and fancy-dress balls. In this way the association publicised modernist art on many different levels, providing plenty for people to talk and argue about.

With 119 works by 69 artists, including 48 paintings, 14 sculptures and 12 models and drawings by architects, this first-ever all-round retrospective at the Berlinische Galerie marks the centenary of the best-known of all little-known creative communities and its dramatic origins.

Alongside avant-garde celebrities like Belling, Dix, Höch, Klee, Mendelsohn, Van der Rohe, Pechstein and others, Berlin’s museum of modern art, photography and architecture will feature many discoveries and rediscoveries, including Dungert, Dexel, Kulvianski, Roeder, Tappert, Völker and Wetzel.

Artists (selected):Rudolf Belling, Otto Dix, Max Dungert, Theo van Doesburg, Curt Ehrhardt, Otto Freundlich, Paul Goesch, Walter Gropius, George Grosz, Oswald Herzog, Hannah Höch, Issai Kulvianski, Paul Klee, El Lissitzky, Moriz Melzer, Erich Mendelsohn, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, Piet Mondrian, Otto Möller, Max Pechstein, Ivan Puni, Hans Richter, Emy Roeder, Georg Scholz, Kurt Schwitters, Fritz Stuckenberg, Max Taut and Georg Tappert.

The patron is Michael Müller, Governing Mayor of Berlin.

The exhibition is part of a winter festival on the theme “100 Years of Revolution – Berlin 1918|19″.
