About this artwork

Otto Dix’s war and world are decidedly male. In this homosocial scene of carousing at a canteen in the rural French town of Haplincourt, the simplified forms seem to parallel the reduction of the soldiers to the basic male behaviors of drinking, dancing, and generally physically or emotionally escaping the war in any way possible, through artificial or natural means.
