Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945–1965 / Video

Video

"Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965" examines the vibrant and turbulent postwar period as a global phenomenon for the first time in recent exhibition history. In eight dramatic chapters, the exhibition guides visitors through the first 20 years following the end of World War II, demonstrating how artists coped with and responded to the political, cultural and artistic shifts taking place at the time.

The video allows a closer look at the works in the exhibition and its structure, commented by the three co-curators of the exhibition, Okwui Enwezor, Katy Siegel and Ulrich Wilmes.
