The Age of Excess Berlin in the Golden Twenties

After the devastation of World War I, cultural life blossomed and reached its heyday in Berlin. The 1920s were a time in which all the arts, both old and new, were cold, raw, shocking and sharp-edged.  But the "live fast, die young" ethos would be cut short by the rise of the Nazis.
