Falling Stars World War I as the End of the Road: Disrupted Lives from Boccioni to Schiele
10 october 2014—8 february 2015
The Kunsthalle zu Kiel is commemorating the anniversary of the beginning of the First World War with the exhibition Falling Stars, presenting a unique and representative cross section of pre-war modernism in Germany and Europe. Falling Stars engages with European artists whose lives and artistic careers found an abrupt end due to the War and the attendant circumstances, such as Spanish influenza and suicide.

The title of the show quotes the expressionist poet August Stramm, who wrote the poem “Wunde” (Wound) during World War I and was also one of its many victims.

The works of 60 artists from 12 European nations are on view in the presentation. Some of the names have been indelibly etched in the memories of international and German art lovers. Such is the case, for example, with Franz Marc and August Macke, Albert Weisgerber and Umberto Boccioni.
