    The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Carcassonne continues its educational approach to make art accessible to as many people as possible. The new cycle of conferences revolves around great names in modern art, symbolizing both an era, violent and exhilarating, and movements that will make a mark. Speaker: Marie-Laure Ruiz-Maugis, art historian From 1912, the term "expressionism", which had until then been used to designate Fauvism in France, is used in Germany to designate the use by artists of a violent chromaticism. These artists are mainly grouped around two movements: Die Brücke ("The Bridge"), in Dresden then in Berlin, and Der Blaue Reiter ("The Blue Rider"), in Munich. Within Die Brücke, artists such as Kirchner, Pechstein, Nolde, seek to find what characterizes the creations of primitive peoples, the expression of strength and life in their most elementary form, as well as harmony with nature. . Kandinsky, Marc and Jawlensky, founders of Der Blau Reiter, for their part insert their chromatic compositions into a more constructed, more controlled system, thus showing very early on a tendency to abstraction. The First World War, to which mobilized artists initially attributed positive forces before becoming disillusioned, dispersed these creators in a new way of painting.
