At night. Cabarets and Clubs in Art Nouveau

Exhibition February 14 − June 1, 2020
Nightclubs, cafes, bars and cabarets were the brightest centers of modernism in the twentieth century, providing artists with a platform for the creative exchange of ideas between painting and graphics, architecture, design, literature, dancing and music.

Exhibition "At night. Cabarets and Clubs in Art Nouveau"examines many of these places around the world and explores their lasting impact on art history.

The exhibition not only explores the cult places of the avant-garde, but also takes the viewer to the Nadie cafe in Mexico City and the Harlem Renaissance in New York jazz clubs of the 1920s and 1930s, whose main characters fought against racism. The exhibition ends with the Mbari clubs, founded in the early 1960s in Ibadan and Osogbo, Nigeria, and the Rasht 29 art club, which was opened in Tehran in 1966.

The exhibition presents the works of Hans Arp, Hugo Ball, Giacomo Balla, Max Beckman, Georgina Beyer, E. Simms Campbell, Karl Otto Czech, Fortunato Depero, Otto Dix, Theo van Dusburg, Aaron Douglas, Hannah Hoh, Josef Hoffmann, Jacob Loff Bertold Leffler, Elfried Lose-Wechtler, Oscar Kokoschka, Jeanne Mammen, Coloman Moser, Henri Riviera, Sophie Tauber-Arp, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Suzanne Wenger and others.
