The upcoming exhibition with works from the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank and loans from the Privatsammlung Michels in Berlin presents a cross-section of expressionist positions of the 20th century in Germany.

MENSCHENBILD - the expressionist viewpays special attention to paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photographs that have emerged from diverse receptions of expressionist approaches and reflect the social changes of recent decades. The human figure, which is the main focus of the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank, is of central importance as the emotional reactions of "man" to political and socio-critical circumstances caused Expressionism to take individual directions.
