Nothing captures a Zeitgeist better than art. That's especially true for Germany's topsy-turvy 1920s and '30s — a time of cabaret, controversy and social chaos sandwiched between two world wars. For a peek into the atmosphere of this reality-shattering era, the National Gallery's Surreale Sachlichkeit exhibit showcases work from Parisan surrealist and German neue sachlichkeit (new objectivity) painters. The exhibition ends April 23, so now is your last chance to view the collection of works by avant-garde artistic titans like Otto Dix and Belgian surrealist René Magritte. Lovers of art and art history: If you're in need of a good nerding-out session, this is your time.


An impressive collection of Weimar-era art.
For a special look into an especially crazy time to be alive.
Schloßstraße 70, 14059 Berlin
Until Apr. 23. Tues.-Sun., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
