Die Brücke

(The Bridge) (c. 1905–13) A group of German expressionists, including Kirchner, whose manifesto was to overthrow the concept of art as an end in itself, and to integrate art and life by using art as a means of communication. Influenced by tribal art and van Gogh, the founders lived and worked communally, using clashing colors and aggressive distortions in their intense works.
