I have a great love for the German artists who worked during the Weimer period. I posted a piece about Otto Dix a while back on the blog and also mentioned George Grosz. It's obvious their work leaned toward caricature since it's probably the best way to document the human condition.
I recently came across the work of Karl Hubbuch on the "Weimer" blog. Like Dix and Grosz his work was placed in the category of New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit). The movement was divided into two groups, the Verists and the the Classicists. The Verists emphasized the ugliness of reality and were satirically brutal...which is why I love them!
Hubbuch was a contibutor to the German magazine Zakpo, a monthly journal of contemporary art, viewing of the times, satire and caricature as well!
...it was a good day to go "old skool" just in case the power went out (which it did on numerous occasions due to the wind left behind by Ms. Irene)...funny too, his new film is Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark...how appropriate ;)
