WELTTHEATER . Beckmann . Catalogue

Max Beckmann. The World as a Stage is the fascinating catalogue accompanying the exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bremen and the Museum Barberini, Potsdam.
Many of the paintings by Max Beckmann show the world of theatre, circus, and vaudeville. He assumed the position of the spectator and his paintings were the stage. He was driven by pageantry and this is the first publication to show how Beckmann’s artistic theatre was palpably visual while also showing his work in the context of the history of ideas. It illustrates how the painter and author perceived himself as an theatre director and scene shifter. This book grants readers highly innovative and captivating access to one of the most exceptional artists of the last century and his extraordinary visual and formal language.

With essays by Eva Fischer-Hausdorf, Sebastian Karnatz, Irene Pieper, Lynette Roth, Ortrud Westheider and Christiane Zeiller
