Event Description

As part of the cycle:  "Aspects of Art Nouveau in Europe” 

By Gilles Genty, art historian 

Like the administrative organization of the country, Art Nouveau in Germany is characterized by the multitude of its development centers. While one of the very first Secessions in Europe was born in Berlin in 1894, Munich, where Wassily Kandinsky settled in 1896, saw the emergence of an aesthetically and politically radical Art Nouveau. From 1898 to 1914, Darmstadt experienced a unique experience of artistic patronage. Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig, grandson of Queen Victoria, invited artists, including the Viennese Olbrich, to build a sort of "ideal city" where artists and craftsmen could work freely. In Weimar, the Belgian Henry van de Velde and the German Peter Behrens made the School of Applied Arts the laboratory of the future Bauhaus.
