Further Biographical Context for Georg Hillmann
Georg Hillmann was born in 1916 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1930s. The period of the 1930s is epitomised by the clashing of many political ideologies, including Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. Surrealism continued to dominate in Europe, and had influence internationally. Artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera in Mexico, worked to integrate the ideas posed by Surrealism into their radical political ideologies, developing a new kind of magic realism.
