Beyond the Horizon : Art of the GDR in the Collections of the Staatliches Museum Schwerin
A handsome book featuring GDR artworks from the Schwerin State Museum's collections.
The catalogue, and the show that it accompanies, explore artworks that challenge and go beyond the stereotypes of Socialist Realism. Even traditional genres such as portrait, landscape and still life, refuse to bow to ideological objectives and offer an unexpected view of the GDR.
The richly-illustrated catalog is published in German and English. Well-researched essays by historians and art historians demonstrate the importance and uniqueness of the Schwerin collection.
