The Weimar Republic in Germany lasted only fourteen short years, from 1919 until the seizure of power by Adolf Hitler and the establishment of the Third Reich in 1933. Yet from 1919 to 1933, artists thrived in an atmosphere of radical change. Otto Dix and George Grosz created biting social satire. Kaethe Kollwitz advocated for the poor. Josef Albers, Lyonel Feininger, and Wassily Kandinsky promoted new design principles at the Bauhaus School. August Sander and Ilse Bing expanded the possibilities for photography. The exhibition “Changing Visions” is drawn from the Davison Art Center collection, and explores the creative ferment during the Weimar Republic, and the travels of artists who fled after 1933 and brought new artistic ideas to audiences in Europe and the Americas.
