People who have saved this event:


This archival display documents the seminal 1974 ICA exhibition Art into Society – Society into Art: Seven German Artists (29 October – 24 November 1974).


The exhibition was a key part of a season called the German Month that was staged at the ICA and which featured film screenings, talks, performances and exhibitions showcasing the wide-ranging cultural developments emerging from West Germany at that time. Organised by ICA Curator Sir Norman Rosenthal and writer and curator Christos M. Joachimides, Art into Society – Society into Art included artists Albrecht D., Joseph Beuys, KP Brehmer, Hans Haacke, Dieter Hacker, Gustav Metzger, Klaus Staeck and photographer Michael Ruetz. At a time of pivotal change within the  broader social and political structures, as well as the field of art production, the exhibition showed the increasingly close relationship between artistic expression and politics coming from West Germany.
