Noontime Talk: "The Robbers: German Art in a Time of Crisis"

Noontime Talk: "The Robbers: German Art in a Time of Crisis"

with Andrew Eschelbacher, Susan Donnell and Harry W. Konkel Assistant Curator of European Art

Each Friday at noon, join a curator, educator, scholar, or artist in the galleries for a thought-provoking discussion that enhances the PMA experience and ends your week with a bracing art talk. Free with museum admission.

This week, discover the printmaking of George Grosz, Otto Dix, Kathe Kollwitz, and others as they engaged with the instabilities of German society following the First World War. Learn about the interplay between politics, printmaking, and historic literature—a relationship that remains resonant today.

Free with museum admission.
