CHINESE MODERNISM AROUND LU XUN AND MASEREEL


In collaboration with Europalia China, the MSK organized an exhibition about modernist Western influences on Chinese art during the 1920s and 1930. Woodcuts, caricatures, photomontages, magazine and book covers show how the Chinese modernists referred to the work of the Russian futurists, the German expressionists, such as Käthe Kollwitz or Georg Grosz, or the socially committed woodcuts of Frans Masereel, in developing a new visual language.
