A behind the scenes look at the exhibition "UTOPIA 1900-1940. Visions of a New World", which runs from 22 September 2013 – 5 January 2014 at the Museum de Lakenhal (Leiden, the Netherlands).
The beginning of the 20th century saw the rise of two avant-garde movements that shared an unrelenting determination to change the world: Expressionism and Constructivism. Yet while both aspired to create a 'New Man in a New Society', their views of how this transformation would occur were diametrically opposed.
UTOPIA 1900-1940. Visions of a New World provides a fresh perspective on these two movements, presenting them together, through works by artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Emil Nolde, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Franz Marc, and El Lissitzky. Exceptional loans come from major institutions, including the Centre Pompidou, the Albertina, and the Hamburger Kunsthalle.
