New Objectivity

7 May 2022

Organised according to categories created by August Sander for his People of the 20th Century project, the ‘New Objectivity’ (11 May–5 September) exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, brings together some 900 works in many different media. Taking in the full breadth of the Neue Sachlichkeit movement, the exhibits range from Albert Renger-Patzch’s photographs in the series Die Welt Ist Schön (The World is Beautiful) to the music of Ernst Krenek and Paul Hindemith. The show also includes some of the best-known portraits by Otto Dix, such as Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber (1925) and Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden (1926).
