Early UFA Film Posters: Projecting Women.
The Goethe-Institut presents eight posters from famous as well as rarely seen or lost Berlin UFA films from the 1920s and 30s. Ranging from Ernst Lubitsch's Sumurun to Fritz Lang's Metropolis and The Nibelungs, the posters illustrate the range of images of women at the time, as heroines or seductresses, debutantes or harlots. The posters were designed by the best graphic designers of the time; artists such as Robert L. Leonard, Theo Matejko, Werner Graul, and Peter Pewas. Their works, like the films they promote, were influenced by the contemporary 1920s styles of Expressionism and Neue Sachlichkeit.
Das UFA-Plakat: Filmpremieren 1918 bis 1943 is a joint project by the Austrian National Library, the Stiftung Deutsche Kinemathek and the Goethe-Institut ... more
