Note Includes bibliographical references and index
"In the past, the various categories of Expressionism have usually been treated seperately. The [title] is the first comprehensive publication ever to examine the remarkable interplay of --and parallel developments in-- art, film, literautre, theater, dance, and architecture in the years 1905 to 1925. The Exhibition and tje catalogue bring together the masterpieces of Expressionist film sich as 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' and 'Genuine', architectural models, set designs, stage photographs, poster art, dance masks, paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures to present a unique panorama of the Expressionist period. Addressing a disasterous war, a revolution, urban modernity, and the reinvention of the world, this is the first book in which renowned authors, key works, and source texts from all disciplines come together to allow the reader to thoroughly experience the ways in which the various areas of activity mutually influenced each other, as well as the equally dramatic and fascinating fruits of Expressionism's networks." --Jacket
