TOWARD THE LIGHT The Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914

The anniversary exhibition to Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914 at the Mathildenhöhe (on the day exactly 100 years after this last historic Great Exhibition after the ones in 1901, 1904 and 1908 - presents with works by Albin Müller, Bernhard Hoetger, Elizabeth Duncan, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens, Emanuel Josef Margold, Arnold Mendelssohn and Heinrich Jobst the whole spectrum of creative work from architecture and painting to sculpture and applied arts to music and dance. Historical documents and works of art highlight the importance of this exhibition before the great war.

To bring alive the spirit of the Artists’ Colony Exhibition of 1914, the Künstlerkolonie Museum (Artists' Colony Museum) presents both paintings, sculptures, drawings, jewelry and photographs from the Municipal Art Collection of Darmstadt as well as valuable loans from public and private collections. They bear witness to the unbroken optimism of modernity, which ruled in the Darmstadt Artists' Colony until the outbreak of the First World War and which is still noticeable on the Mathildenhöhe.
