Berlin Bonbonniere Cabaret Poster
Ethrenbergers dates are not known, but he was very active in the Munich graphic arts scene between 1905 and 1939, working for the magazine Jugend and other publications, including the Berlin-based Elegente Welt. And the elegant world is precisely where he takes us in this poster for the Bonbonniere, advertised, in fact, as Germanys Most Elegant Cabaret. And the opulent decadence on display is perfectly suited to the milieu, a dismissive submergence into an availability of pleasures so intense as to leave the chilly revelers in a joyous state of ennui. All for our voyeuristic pleasure, since after all, life as a cabaret.
