Article

Herwarth Walden was the force behind Der Sturm, an avant-garde journal, gallery, performance venue, bookstore and theater school in Berlin (1910–1932). Walden’s first wife, the poet Else Lasker-Schüler (1869–1945), whose works he set to music, bestowed the utopian name on him. Walden founded the journal Der Sturm in 1910. His contacts through Lasker-Schüler, his piano teacher Conrad Ansorge (1862–1930), and the Viennese writer Karl Kraus (1874–1936) and architect Adolf Loos (1870–1933) ensured the journal’s success.
