The focus is on works from the 1980s and 1990s, which underline the emphasis of the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank. Loans from the Kunststiftung Michels also provide selected insights into artistic positions of the early 20th century. Both, different socio-political circumstances as well as individual approaches led to diverse further developments of central ideas of Expressionism. The figurative works from different decades illustrate in the image of man the attitude to life of this time.
