Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33A free, year-long exhibition at Tate Modern, Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33 explores German art in the period between WWI and WWII. Drawing on the holdings of The George Economou Collection, the exhibition presents around 70 paintings and works on paper in order to explore the art of the Weimar Republic. During the period, a time of political economic uncertainty, liberalisation and anti-militarism flourished and 'magic realism' - a term invented by artist and critic Franz Roh in 1925 - demonstrated a shift from the expressionist era to unsettling imagery. The display comes in a year of commemoration of the anniversary of the end of WWI, during which Tate Britain presents Aftermath: Art in the Wake of World War One.

Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
