Portraying a Nation: Germany 1919 – 1933 at Tate Liverpool Albert Dock, Liverpool Waterfront L3 4BB

See intimate portraits of ordinary people during Germany’s inter-war years.

Portraying a Nation: Germany 1919–1933 presents the face of Germany between the two world wars told through the eyes of painter Otto Dix (1891–1969) and photographer August Sander(1876–1964) - two artists whose works document the radical extremes of the country in this period.

Featuring more than 150 works, Portraying a Nation combines two exhibitions: Otto Dix: The Evil Eye includes paintings and works on paper that explore Dix’s harshly realistic depictions of German society and the brutality of war and ARTIST ROOMS: August Sander which presents photographs from Sander’s best known series People of the Twentieth Century, his attempt to document the German people. In painting and photography, these works from a pivotal point in the country’s history reflect both the glamour and the misery of Weimar society.
