Xanti Schawinsky – Schall und Rauch: Die wilden Zwanziger
Kunsthaus Zürich, Zürich
03 July – 11 October 2020
The 1920-ties were times of departure and relapse. In the wake of WWI and the subsequent Spanish flu – a pandemic similar to the current COVID-19 crisis – people’s thirst for a good life grew stronger and stronger. The longing for innovations and renewal were as strong as never before or after in the 20th Century.
