Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919 - 1933

Art Tate Modern , South Bank Until Saturday July 13 2019
Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919 - 1933
© Estate of Otto Dix 2018

Tate Modern's major new free exhibition does a number on reclaiming the term 'magic realism'. Commonly used to describe the stories written by South American authors including Jorge Luis Borges and Gabriel García Márquez, this exhibition remembers that the term was actually invented by Franz Roh. The German artist and critic coined it as a name for the art created in his home country following the emotionally fraught German Expressionist movement. Seventy paintings and works on paper are shown here, including some surely unmissable ones by the brilliant Otto Dix.
