MoMA: German Expressionism

March 21, 2011

We are honored to announce our latest collaboration with MoMA – the architecture design of a website showcasing over 3,000 German Expressionist works. The launch of the site coincides with the opening of a new exhibition at the museum, German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse, and represents the culmination of a major four-year grant to digitize, catalogue, and conserve MoMA’s rich collection of Expressionist art. Divided into multiple categories (by theme, artist, chronology, location, and more), viewers can easily explore a vast array of works and gain a comprehensive understanding of the movement as a whole. And the show is incredible, full of deeply thought-provoking works on a subjects ranging from postwar politics and fantasy, to death and religion. So be sure to not only make a trip to see the 250 works currently on view at the MoMA, but also check out the website for unprecedented access to their entire collection of prints, periodicals, sculptures, paintings, and more. And not to play favorites or anything, but our current obsession? The illustrated books that can be viewed through an interactive page-turning animation. It’s the next best thing to actually having them in your hands. German Expressionism: Works from the Collection
