Für Margarete Steffin
The currently favored image of the Weimar Republic is constructed as a liberal one that emphasizes the individual freedom to shape one’s life. Meanwhile, the collectivist face of the workers’ movement and the artists inspired by it were and are mostly ignored. With Für Margarete Steffin in the exhibition Greif zur Feder, Ina Wudtke aims to grant resistance workers in general, and the workers’ writer Margarete Steffin in particular, their rightful place in history.
