Ludwig Meidner (–) was an important, but little known, figure in the German expressionist movement. His early Apocalyptic Landscapes are today seen as some of the purest examples of expressionism. A Jewish artist, Meidner continued to produce paintings and prose throughout most of his life, but his exile in London during World War II contributed to the relative neglect of his work. Already in the s, the Jewish exile and philosopher of the Frankfurt School, Theodor Adorno, addressed exile as a inconsolable, damaging, and alienating experience. In his book Minima Moralia: Reflections from Damaged Life, he asserted that “the house is past,” and “it is part of morality [today] not to be at home in one’s home.

Kracauer almost completely ignores German expressionism's stylistic features, focusing instead on narrative threads and typologies that buttress his case.
More than any other avant-garde movement, German Expressionism captures the aesthetic revolution of 20th-century modernity in all its contrasts and conflicts. In continuous eruptions from toExpressionism upset reigning practices in the arts, m.

In a new book Belgian author and journalist Mark Schaevers follows in the footsteps of Nussbaum. He traces his paintings and analyses their meaning against the background of the artist’s personal experiences during his life in exile.
The book is called “Orgelman. Felix Nussbaum – een schildersleven” (the life of an artist). Key Ideas & Accomplishments. The arrival of Expressionism announced new standards in the creation and judgment of art. Art was now meant to come forth from within the artist, rather than from a depiction of the external visual world, and the standard for assessing the quality of a work of art became the character of the artist's feelings rather than an analysis of the composition.
On the other, authenticity was self-consciously staged in the interest of political enlightenment. Realism, no less than expressionism, functioned to warn and exhort.

Reckoning with exile: Beckmann as chronicler of the dispossessed. Associated with, but not reducible to, both German Expressionism and New Objectivity, German painter Max Beckmann (–) developed an individual pictorial style, using a realistic idiom filled with symbolic references to offer a powerful account of the upheavals of the 20th century and their personal s: 1.
