Was God Dead? Biblical Imagination in German Expressionist Prints

Was God Dead? Biblical Imagination in German Expressionist Prints

Was God Dead? Biblical Imagination in German Expressionist Prints is the catalog to accompany an exhibition of the same title that travels with Bowden Collections and curated by Sandra Bowden.

Sandra also wrote the Foreword that explains her quest to understand why German artists at the turn of the 20th century, who were followers of Nietzsche would so frequently turn to biblical subjects in the face of political upheaval and war.  

Daniel Siedell has written a superb short essay that captures not only the turbulence and power of the post-WWI German avant garde, but also the tenacious hope that the Gospel and the whole Bible offer to those who come to it with an open eye and open heart and mind.  

Photographs of all 60 works are included in the book.
