Neue Sachlichkeit

(German: “New Objectivity”).  A German art movement in the Weimar Republic period (1918-1933). Neue Sachlichkeit artists rejected abstraction and expressionism to confront the problems of contemporary German society with unsentimental realism. The movement took its name from the exhibition Neue Sachlichkeit, held in Mannheim in 1925. Associated artists include Otto Dix, George Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz, Christian Schad and Max Beckmann.
