Eighty-five years have passed since the Degenerate Art exhibition opened in Munich, yet much about this critical event remains misunderstood, including its targeting of German Expressionism and the role it played in the dissemination of the Third Reich’s antisemitic ideology. This focus exhibition features four art objects that offer a variety of insights the Nazis’ condemnation of German modernist art, their persecution of Jewish artists, and their looting of Jewish art collections.
