the Museum’s first exhibition created exclusively for the web and showcases its unparalleled collection of German
Expressionist prints and illustrated books. The Brücke group, formed in 1905 in Dresden by four revolutionary
architectural students including Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Erich Heckel, strove to achieve a new synthesis between
art and life, bringing meaning back to what they considered the superficial bourgeois existence of German life under
Kaiser Wilhelm II. They organized exhibitions and publicized their own work by issuing annual portfolios of prints.
