Hanna Nagel’s focus as an artist was on drawing and graphic prints. Like no other woman artist of her time, she examined the relationship between men and women as well as the problematic balancing act between professional work and motherhood. Her work following her studies in Karlsruhe was at first characterized by objective precision. With her move to Berlin, she, however, distanced herself from the stringent drawing style of Neue Sachlichkeit. The oft-biographical works executed with a brush and pen in Indian ink are formally more complex and painterly, whereby the impression of these so-called "Dunkle Blätter" (Dark Works) corresponds to the narratively and symbolically charged topics chosen. The focus of the exhibition and catalogue is on the works of the 1920s and the early 1930s.
