For the first time visitors of the Musée Maillol in Paris can see German expressionistic art in a big special exhibition. Art of this period, emerging in times of the First World War, is rather unknown in France. There are art works of Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Ludwig Kirchner, August Macke and others. The design concept relates the art to their historical context. The installation enables a dialogue between art and history: between paintings, print graphics and drawings and steel helmets, gas masks and footage about the horrors of trench warfare.
