For the first time, Berlinische Galerie and Österreichische Galerie Belvedere will present the central works of Viennese and Berlin modernism in a large‑scale show, from the Secessions in both cities to Expressionism and New Objectivity. By combining masterpieces from both collections with works that until now have not been granted much attention, the show will provide a comprehensive look at the intense exchange that took place between these two major urban centres at the start of the 20th century. Artists in the exhibition include Hans Baluschek, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Carry Hauser, Raoul Hausmann, Hannah Höch, Ernst‑Ludwig Kirchner, Erika Giovanna Klien, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Broncia Koller‑Pinell, Max Liebermann, Jeanne Mammen, Ludwig Meidner, Koloman Moser, Max Oppenheimer, Emil Orlik, Christian Schad, Egon Schiele, and Max Slevogt.
