Twilight over Berlin: Masterworks from the Nationalgalerie, 1945-1905

Edited by Adina Kamien-Kazhdan

Fifty artworks by the great artists of German Expressionism and Weimar-period movements such as New Objectivity - almost all branded "degenerate” under the Nazi regime - were loaned to the Israel Museum by the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany and the Museum’s 50th Anniversary.

The publication contains a full-page image and a brief discussion of each work by German art historians, as well as essays on the story of the Nationalgalerie collection by Neue Nationalgalerie curator Dieter Scholz; on the Nazis’ suppression of avant-garde art by cultural critic Dana Arieli; and on “masking” as a means of exposing trauma and confronting social issues by Israel Museum Modern Art curator Adina Kamien-Kazhdan. The fourth article, reflections on our understanding of events in Germany leading up to World War II, was written by historian Boaz Neumann, to whose memory the book is dedicated.
