EXPRESSIONIST ADVENTURES


The Red City, a painting by Marianne von Werefkin from 1909, stands exemplary for Expressionism which emerged in Northern Europe in the early 20th century and quickly spread through all of the arts and as well also in architecture. So lets make a short walk through the vivid Falkenhagener Feld in Berlin.



The Falkenhagener Feld was originally an area used by allotments and agriculture and closes west of the old town of Spandau, the core of the district Spandau in Berlin. Between 1923 and 1927 the architect Richard Ermisch realized here the erection of a huge estate in Expressionist style along the Zeppelinstr. and Falkenseer Chaussee.

At the junction of both streets four eye-catching towers form the very centre of this interesting architecture. Till today these varied houses look really strikingly modern although almost one hundred years old.

  1. Habe gerade die Ausstellung „ Lebensmenschen“ mit Gemälden von Werefkin ( darunter auch das oben Abgebildete) und Jawlensky in München besucht. Expressionistische Architektur hatte ich bisher nicht auf dem Schirm. Danke für den den tollen informativen Beitrag 😊.
