The exhibition Expressionism in Art and Film aims to shed new light on Expressionism across conventional boundaries of genre and to show the common influences between the arts of painting, graphics, and film. In painted and moving pictures, the exhibition shows how deeply Expressionism was permeated by the crisis of its time and how loudly it expressed the rapid societal upheavals. Having been a cultural revolutionary movement, Expressionism aimed to unite art and life from its very beginning and to eradicate the separation of the arts. As a result, being multi-disciplinary became the ideal for artists and the Gesamtkunstwerk the desired goal.
