MAX BECKMANN: Artistic Transformation & Metamorphosis with Professor Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

100th Anniversary of the End of WWI - The Great War

A dramatic change from Max Beckmann’s classical academic style occurs in paintings completed after 1914. This artistic transformation was the direct result of the artist’s experiences in WWI for the German cause, where he served as an ambulance driver and orderly at the front of the carnage. A conscientious objector to the war, Beckmann's experiences led to a mental breakdown and the abandonment of creating "pretty pictures." Beckmann's new grotesque, coarse, expressionistic style followed. This visual lecture relates Beckmann’s work before, during and after World War I. After 1914, Beckmann incorporated iconographic religious subjects into his paintings using angular figures, expressing parallels between the horrors of war and mankind’s inhumane cruelties towards Jesus Christ. Consideration to Beckmann’s graphic works: Faces (1915) displaying physiognomic anxiety; Hell (1919), about the social disintegration and violence in Berlin during the immediate postwar period Annual Fair (1921), an ongoing fascination with cabaret and carnival life as a fictionalized world of the bizarre and bohemian society outcasts. Beckmann’s war experience scarred and matured the artist, leading to an expressionist style involving circus and theatrical themes presented as Renaissance compositional triptychs. These works communicate powerful metaphors representing universal, psychic wounds. Witnesses to war have rarely been able to articulate the intense collective loss of reason as Beckmann was left after WWI. The German artist’s visual response, though abstracted and symbolically treated using surrogate performers and distorted musical instruments, represents the cacophony of The Great War’s violence and chaos explored allegorically.

THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD with Professor Brian Rose
2:00 PM

Brian Rose is a Professor of Film and Television at Fordham University, Lincoln Center Campus. He's written three books on television history. In addition, he's interviewed leading directors, actors, and writers for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the British Academy of Film and Television, the Writers Guild, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Directors Guild of America.

From the late 1920s through the end of World War II, studios like MGM, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, and RKO would dominate film production, not only in America but throughout the world. The reasons for Hollywood's success during this period are intriguing. Despite the economic problems posed by the Depression, the studios became virtual entertainment factories, with each studio producing more than 50 movies a year. The legacy of these years of frenzied activity are among the best-loved, and most significant films, ever made. This presentation will examine the forces that made Hollywood the giant of world film-making and the special nature of its achievements during its Golden Age, including discussions of studio politics and economics, the star system, and the nature of the movie-going experience. There will also be an analysis of why this period was so short-lived and Hollywood's desperate attempts beginning in the 1950s to recapture its faded glory.
