Tehaner Ball – Art by K. Leiss (1934) 33″ x 47″ German Advertising Poster

Tehaner Ball (literally translates to “Student Ball”), the 1934 German poster promoting a ball which took place at the Regina Palast Hotel in Munich, Germany on January 31st, and featuring wild art by K. Leiss. It is interesting to note that when Adolf Hitler became the leader of Germany, he banned all expressionist and “modern” art as “decadent”, but oddly, he allowed this sort of ball, and the posters created for them, to continue (perhaps it was related to it taking place in Munich, and perhaps he had fond years of living in Munich as a young man, including when he was in prison near the city, when he wrote “Mein Kampf”, and perhaps he did not have a philosophical difference with this kind of ball!).
