INowhere is art more firmly tied to history than in post-war Germany. Arising from the ashes of World War II only to follow two dramatically different paths during the Cold War, German art has still yet to gain an unequivocal national identity, 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Thus we have the powerful exhibition, "Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures," Jan. 25-Apr. 19, 2009, which makes its sole U.S. at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
