Description: Stuttgart: Hatje Cantz, 2010. 31cm., hardcover, 512pp., 467 illus., many in color. Exhibition held at Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt. English text. Summary: The various categories of Expressionism have in the past usually been treated separately. The Total Artwork in Expressionism, however, is the first publication ever to examine the remarkable interplay of—and parallel developments in—art, film, literature, theater, dance, and architecture in the years 1905 to 1925. The exhibition and the catalogue unite masterpieces of Expressionist film, such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Genuine, architectural models, set designs, stage photographs, poster art, dance masks, paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures to form a unique panorama of the Expressionist period. Whether dealing with a disastrous war, a revolution, urban modernity, or the reinvention of the world—this is the first book in which renowned authors, key works, and source texts from all disciplines allow the reader to thoroughly experience the ways the genres mutually influenced each other, as well as the equally drastic yet fascinating fruits of the Expressionist networks.
