The mad square

The mad square education kit

This education kit has been developed to help Year 7–12 students engage with the issues and ideas in the exhibition The mad square: modernity in German art 1910-37.

Each of the themes or rooms in the exhibition has a focus work, with issues for consideration for Year 7-12 Visual Arts students.

The content of these pages is also available as a PDF, which includes A4-size reproductions of the artworks. The PDFs for the Modern history and German language supplements are provided separately.
