The Weimar Republic was definitely a pretty lit place to be, WW1 was over and no one thought there would be another. It was a time of opulence, free spiritedness and risk taking. Think cabaret, jazz, martinis and sex - yes, it was like a very well rounded night out. The paintings from this era, by the likes of Otto Dix, George Grosz, Albert Birkle and Jeanne Mammen, depict sex workers in negligee and crazy nights on the town, alongside the dark debauchery of a post-war society. Many of the works were banned by the Nazis, for being too erotic and promoting life outside of mainstream society, but thankfully, they are now safe and sound, ready for your appraisal on the walls of the Tate.
