The 1920s were a decade of economic progress and decline, cultural change and political instability in most European countries. The disastrous First World War was followed by the even more desastrous Spanish flew. The lust for life could be tasted in Paris, Berlin, Prague, London and other cities. At no point in the 20th century was the desire for change, culture and leisure more intense. The exhibition (Schall und Rauch. Die wilden Zwanziger) shows an impressive picture of this eventful period on the basis of many objects and images.
