This exhibition explores the relationships of dissident art and power in the GDR through a large number of representative works.

About

Dissidence and critical distancing from the state apparatus took a great variety of artistic forms in the former socialist republic. This gathering of “other” art from the GDR asks how Germany’s recent history can be reappraised after decades of sterile East-West comparisons. Who are its real heroes? The exhibition will present the production of an active, dynamic and fearless network of assertive painters, poets, performers, actionists, Super8 filmmakers and jazz and rock musicians who looked for spaces of freedom beyond the reach of the state.
