/ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE EXHIBITION AT THE FRANZ MARC MUSEUM, KOCHEL AM SEE, October 13, 2013 – January 19, 2014

1913—a year of transition and tension, full of joie de vivre, but also angst and escapist desires. Wilhelm II appoints himself German “Emperor of Peace,” Franz Marc flees from the urban “Babylon” of Munich to the countryside, Louis Armstrong plays in a band for the first time, and Gertrude Stein receives avant-garde artists and writers in her Paris salon. While archeological excavations in Egypt are discovering the Nefertiti bust, Marcel Duchamp is making his first readymade.

Drawing on works of art, contemporary accounts, and historical photographs, this lavishly illustrated volume explores the countless facets of a year that seemingly hovered between doom and a new dawn.

Florian Illies, born in 1971, is an art historian, journalist (for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Die Zeit, and Monopol, among other publications) and Managing Director of the Berlin auction house Villa Grisebach. One of his most well-known publications is 1913: The Year Before the Storm.

Cathrin Klingsöhr-Leroy, born in 1958, is an art historian and Director of the Franz Marc Museum in Kochel am See. She has published widely on Der Blaue Reiter and artists Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, and Lovis Corinth.
