At the beginning of the 20th century, German artists assumed many different roles as they used their art to push the boundaries of a world in which they were inevitably grounded. This exhibition focuses on the German Expressionist printmakers as tightrope walkers; as those who daringly undertook great risk in trying to rise above that ground to transform society at large. The exhibition includes prints from the John L. and Roslyn Bakst Goldman Collection of German Expressionist Prints, acquired by Grinnell College through the generosity of the Goldmans and an anonymous donor, in 2001. The Exhibition Seminar was directed by Associate Professor of Art Jenny Anger.
