Culture shorts: Satirical artist in spotlight
GEORGE GROSZ: A co-founder of the Berlin Dada group and a revolutionary in the 1920s, Grosz made hundreds of drawings depicting the vices and injustices of a society on the brink of economic and moral collapse.
Rated as one of the finest satirical artists of the 20th century his work is currently being given special attention by New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.
George Grosz's work will be presented alongside Leicester's internationally-acclaimed collection of 20th century German Expressionist art and the August Sander exhibition presenting 175 works by one of the 20th century's most important photographers.
Many of Grosz's drawings were published in portfolios by the left wing publisher Malik-Verlag and this new Hayward Touring exhibition presents two of the most powerful: Ecce Homo, 1923, and Hintergrund (Background), 1928.
