  1. German Expressionism (cinema) - Wikipedia › wiki › German_Expressionism

    German Expressionism consisted of a number of related creative movements in Germany before the First World War that reached a peak in Berlin during the 1920s. These developments in Germany were part of a larger Expressionist movement in north and central European culture in fields such as architecture, dance, painting, sculpture and cinema. This article deals primarily with developments in German Expressionist cinema before and immediately after World War I, approximately from 1910 to the 1930s.

  2. Expressionism - Wikipedia › wiki › Expressionism

    Expressionism is a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Northern Europe around the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionist artists have sought to express the meaning of emotional experience rather than physical reality. Expressionism developed as an avant-garde style before the First World War. It remai

    I haven't been able to parse "The German Expressionist movement was largely expanded down to the isolation Germany was in during World War I." The "was largely expanded down to" seems to be the problem. Can the author rephrase this sentence? Thanks. Knowthhill (talk) 04:30, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

    Would this count as a German expressionist film? Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:10, 20 November 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. It would appear not, although it is clearly related. 1) It was produced in 1930. 2) It deals with World War I. 3) The article identifies the author's perspective as "New Objectivity". I'm going to add a "Related" link at the bottom, but if there is objection from those more expert on the topic than I, just remove it. Ralohmann (talk) 14:55, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

    I notice that this page is virtually a copy of Expressionism (film), other than the photo that was added later. I believe that one of these needs to go and be turned into a redirect... though I'm not sure of the procedure for merging them. RcktScientistX23:11, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC) 1. Merging is done with {{merge}} and {{mergefrom}} - UtherSRG19:37, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC) do not merge the articles, i teach a film class, they are two seperate ideas. One was developed in America and the other in Germany. They should be kept seperate eventhough the ideas are seperate. 1. I disagree with the above poster. Unless they are modified, they should be merged. They are virtually identical. I see very little difference in the other article. If you wish to make is seperate, please as to edit the other article to actually make it different. Claude.Xanadu04:22, 22 February 2006 (UTC) 1. I oppose merging the articles. German Expressionism is a distinct and important period in German film. It's logical that t...

    This page should be retitled either "German Expressionism (film)" or "German Expressionist Cinema". German Expressionism was a much wider artistic movement, covering painting (Grosz, Dix and so on), poetry (Georg Heym, Trakl, Gottfried Benn), theatre (Toller, early Brecht) and music (Schoenberg, Berg) as well as other art forms. The main page "German Expressionism" should reflect that.--Folantin12:21, 12 October 2006 (UTC) Agreed - Expressionist film really came at the tail end of the overall German Expressionist movement. The Expressionist poets, painters, playwrights and directors, had an unfortunate tendency to get killed in the first world war; those that came back alive had a much more cynical style more like Dada.-- Mark, 12 October 2006 This is a good and important point. The term "German Expressionism" is used in respect of a number of loosely connected movements in literary and visual arts - even architecture - and not just in film. Not only does the name of this article ne...

    The introduction notes when it started and who contributed to it, but it never mentions what German expressionism is. Sure it says filmmakers "developed their own style by using symbolism and mise en scène to add mood and deeper meaning to a movie," but I doubt these aspects are unique to German expressionism. The first section after the introduction contains some aspects of 1920s-1930s German Expressionism, but are these qualities shared by all films in this category? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:09, 5 January 2008 (UTC) 1. I have tried to develop the article to include the forms other than film to which the term applies. The geographic spread of the artists included in Expressionism, and the large number of German (and American) artists included suggests a need for a nationally based series of articles.

    I know the qualifying word is "arguably", but on a site like Wikipedia it's usually a way of saying "it is better" without stirring the pot. This is a ridiculous statement for one big reason: "German Expressionism" doesn't remotely encapsulate everything about cinema in the 1920s. The Soviets were doing things the Germans weren't doing just as the Americans were doing things the Soviets were not. F.W. Murnau dropped the more obvious trappings of German Expressionism for a subtler cinematic expressionism/modernism and embraced montage and classical Hollywood form in his last films, the superb City Girl and the final masterpiece Tabu (even in his German period he wasn't nearly as ubiquitous with German Expressionism as he's always made out to be - this is true of German cinema in general.) His American students, particularly King Vidor and John Ford, and other contemporary filmmakers from around the world such as Jean Renoir, would continue on in this manner. The impact of the German...

    It appears that a variety of very good suggestions have been made here over the last 10 years, but there has been little followup. It appears that most of these can be accommodated fairly easily, so I'm going to try to deal with at least some of them, and I hope that others will keep an eye on these changes and comment or re-revise as necessary. Ralohmann (talk) 14:04, 24 September 2015 (UTC) 1. Indeed, I look forward to your proposed changes. The title MUST be changed to something like "German Expressionism (film)," "German Expressionist film" or "German Expressionism in film" -- whatever accords best to the Wiki directives on titling. I was stunned this morning hoping to find a Wiki on the history of German Expressionism in the arts -- painting, printmaking and sculpture -- and instead found this. German Expressionism was a major art movement that emerged around 1905 and continued until the National Socialists condemned much of it as 'degenerate' around 1936-38. By that time, it h...

    The article says "a number" of expressionist directors went to Hollywood but no names are mentioned. Could someone expand on this point? Ralohmann (talk) 15:37, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

    Among the first Ex­pres­sion­ist films, The Stu­dent of Prague (1913), The Cab­i­net of Dr. Cali­gari (1920), From Morn to Mid­night (1920), The Golem: How He Came into the World (1920), Des­tiny (1921), Nos­fer­atu (1922), Phan­tom (1922), and Schat­ten(1923) were highly sym­bolic and styl­ized. The Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist move­ment was ini­tially con­fined to Ger­many due to the iso­la­tion the coun­try ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing World War I. In 1916, the gov­ern­ment had banned for­eign films. The de­mand from the­aters to gen­er­ate films led to an in­crease in do­mes­tic film pro­duc­tion from 24 films in 1914 to 130 films in 1918. With in­fla­tion also on the rise, Ger­mans were at­tend­ing films more freely be­cause they knew that their money's value was con­stantly diminishing. Be­sides the films' pop­u­lar­ity within Ger­many, by 1922 the in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence had begun to ap­pre­ci­ate Ger­man cin­ema, in part due to a de­creas­ing anti-Ger­man sen­ti­ment fol­low­ing t...

    Many crit­ics see a di­rect tie be­tween cin­ema and ar­chi­tec­ture of the time, stat­ing that the sets and scene art­work of Ex­pres­sion­ist films often re­veal build­ings of sharp an­gles, great heights, and crowded en­vi­ron­ments, such as the fre­quently shown Tower of Babel in Fritz Lang's Me­trop­o­lis. Strong el­e­ments of mon­u­men­tal­ism and Mod­ernism ap­pear through­out the canon of Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ism. An ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of this is Me­trop­o­lis, as ev­i­denced by the enor­mous power plant and glimpses of the mas­sive yet pris­tine "upper" city. Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist painters re­jected the nat­u­ral­is­ticde­pic­tion of ob­jec­tive re­al­ity, often por­tray­ing dis­torted fig­ures, build­ings, and land­scapes in a dis­ori­ent­ing man­ner that dis­re­garded the con­ven­tions of per­spec­tive and pro­por­tion. This ap­proach, com­bined with jagged, styl­ized shapes and harsh, un­nat­ural col­ors, were used to con­vey sub­jec­tive emo­tions. A num­ber of ar...

    The two most com­pre­hen­sive stud­ies of Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist film are Lotte Eis­ner's The Haunted Screen and Siegfried Kra­cauer's From Cali­gari to Hitler. Kra­cauer ex­am­ines Ger­man cin­ema from the Silent/Golden Era to sup­port the (con­tro­ver­sial) con­clu­sion that Ger­man films made prior to Hitler's takeover and the rise of the Third Reich all hint at the in­evitabil­ity of Nazi Ger­many. For Eis­ner, sim­i­larly, Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist cin­ema is a vi­sual man­i­fes­ta­tion of Ro­man­tic ideals turned to dark and proto-to­tal­i­tar­ian ends. More re­cent Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist schol­ars ex­am­ine his­tor­i­cal el­e­ments in­flu­enc­ing Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ism, such as the Weimar econ­omy, UFA, Erich Pom­mer, Nordisk, and Hol­ly­wood.

    Influenced by Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Fauvism- the Post-Impressionist colourist school led by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) - and the emotive wood carving of the sculptor Ernst Barlach (1870-1938), German Expressionism created dramatic, compelling portrayals of scenes and people. The movement's three main groups were Der Blaue Reiter, Die Brucke, and Die Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity).

    The Blue Rider expressionist group was formed in Munich, the home of the avant-garde Neue Kunstler Vereiningung (New Artist Association). Its most famous painters were the Russian born Wassily Kandinsky (1844-1944) and the German painter and printmaker Franz Marc (1880-1916).

    In 1911, Kandinsky and Marc split from the rest of the Neue Kunstler Vereiningung and began exhibiting their paintings under the banner of Der Blaue Reiter. Other members included Paul Klee (1879-1940), Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) and August Macke (1887-1914). It remained a loose association rather than a coherent group like Die Brucke, although in 1912 Marc and Kandinsky published their Almanach Der Blaue Reiter, a collection of essays on art. Their general aim was to inject art with spiritual values, using colour as a primary mechanism. The significance of the name Blue Rider remains unclear. Marc believed that animals had an innocence which made them superior to humans, and the colour blue might have had a special meaning for Kandinsky, as he could hear colours as well as see them - a condition known as synaesthesia. Der Blaue Reiter collapsed during the First World War when both Macke and Marc were killed. Examples of the group's expressionism can be seen in Cossacks (1910) by Wassily Kandinsky; The Little Blue Horses (1911) and Little Blue Horse (1912) by Franz Marc.

    The expressionist movement in Germany underwent a major revival during the 1970s and 80s, as part of the general movement known as Neo-Expressionism. Leading German neo-expressionists included Georg Baselitz (b.1938), Jorg Immendorff (b.1945), Anselm Kiefer (b.1945), Rainer Fetting (b.1949), Markus Lupertz (b.1941), and A.R.Penck (b.1939).
