Why Europe Committed Suicide - Adam Gopnik

Adam Gopnik

Adam Gopnik, Critic at Large, The New Yorker.

Adam Gopnik offers an overview of the cultural life of Western Europe and America a century ago—at a moment when the modernist movement had seemed to reach a new apex of innovation in the visual arts, music, and literature—and then asks how that banquet turned, in a matter of months, into the catastrophic tragedy of World War I.

Part of the series 1913: The World Implodes.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
