Showcasing the work of German born illustrator Dodo, known for her work depicting the decadent nightlife of Berlin of the 1920s and 1930s. This exhibition provides a glimpse into the city’s bohemian society between the wars, set against the contrasting reality of a struggling émigré existence in post-War London - fashion, jazz, sex, Jung, art, politics and migration.
