Since 1895, artists have flocked to Venice at regular intervals to present their work to an international audience in the pavilions of the Giardini Pubblici. Germany has long played an important role in this event, from the secessionist art of the Wilhelmine era to the traditionalist and Modern movements of the Weimar Republic, the conformist gleichschaltung of the Third Reich and the diversity of the postwar years right up to the present. This publication marks the centenary of the Venice Biennial by exhaustively documenting the contributions made by German artists over the years. Numerous contemporary illustrations chart the changing forms of presentation. A biographical section lists all curators and committee members. The culture-political background of the Biennial contributions is outlined in introductory essays including a history of the German pavilion, and is elucidated by archive material.
