Further Biographical Context for Karl Mayr
Karl Mayr was born in 1920 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1930s growing up. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s leading political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era assumed a sinister turn with the advent of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social tumult that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
