This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Ben Uri: Art. Identity. Migration

This exhibition features the forced journeys of many of central Europe’s most distinguished artists, who fled tyranny in the lead up to the Second World War.

Please note Ben Uri is presenting this exhibition at the 12 Star Gallery, Westminster, which is dedicated to promoting European debate (12 Star Gallery, Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU).

Shining a spotlight on a very different Europe 80 years ago, the exhibition includes works by artists including Adler, Auerbach, Chagall, Feibusch, Frankfurther, Freud, Grosz, Herman, Kokoshka, Meidner, Schwitters, Soutine and Topolski.

As Europe as a whole is experiencing a growing nationalist and populist momentum, these artists, their work and forced journeys – followed by new lives and significant contributions as immigrants in their new homelands – all have fascinating, important and topical stories to tell.
