Part I. - Germany and European Modernism 1890-1914 Part I (The World of Yesterday) of the exhibition depicts the pre-war emergence of a new European phenomenon: modernism, as represented here by outstanding examples of poster, commercial, and book. Part II (Words in Freedom - Rebellion of the Avant-garde) of the exhibition traces the publishing and communications network of the avant-garde movements of Futurism and Expressionism. Much of the material stems from the archive of Herwarth Walden's magazine 'Der Sturm'. The collector's archive of Egidio Marzona also figures highly in the selection of works, in an exhibition that furthermore aims to raise the profile of the Kulturforum as a site of learning and new research.
