Summary
  • This book accompanies the first major museum exhibition devoted to a reconstruction of the infamous Nazi display of modern art since the presentation originated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1991. During the Nazi regime in Germany, "degenerate art" was the official term for much of the most important modern art of the day. "Degenerate art" was defined by the Nazi regime as artwork that was not in line with the National Socialists' ideas of beauty. Their condemnation extended to works in nearly every major art movement: Expressionism, Dada, New Objectivity, Surrealism, Cubism, and Fauvism. Banned artists included Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Oskar Kokoschka. Richly illustrated, Degenerate Art elucidates the historical and intellectual context of the notorious exhibition in Munich in 1937, which spurred the attack on modern art. The book contains reflections on the genesis and evolution of the term "degenerate art" and details of the National Socialist policy on art. Art works from the exhibition Degenerate Art are compared to works of art from The Great German Art Exhibition, which was held at the same time and displayed the works of officially approved artists. The book also presents the after-effects of the attack on modernism that are felt even today
  • Während der NS-Diktatur in Deutschland wurde ein großer Teil der modernen Kunst als "entartet" diffamiert und die Künstler und deren Förderer aufs Massivste verfolgt. Verfemt wurden Werke, die nicht mit den nationalsozialistischen Idealen und volkspädagogischen Interessen vereinbar waren. Die Verurteilung erstreckte sich auch auf kommunistische und jüdische Künstler und auf nahezu alle großen Kunstströmungen: Expressionismus, Dada, Neue Sachlichkeit, Surrealismus, Kubismus und Fauvismus. Verfemte Künstler waren u. a. Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, Otto Dix, Lovis Corinth, Max Ernst und Oskar Kokoschka. 'Degenerate Art' beschreibt die 1937 in München stattfindende Ausstellung Entartete Kunst, die den Angriff auf die moderne Kunst in Gang setzte. Sie wurde in der Nähe vom damaligen "Haus der Deutschen Kunst" gezeigt, in dem zeitgleich die erste Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung stattfand, die Künstler ausstellte, die vom NS-Regime offiziell anerkannt waren. Weitere Themen im Buch sind die Entstehung und Entwicklung des Begriffs "Entartete Kunst", Details zur nationalsozialistischen Kunstpolitik sowie die Nachwirkungen des Angriffs auf die moderne Kunst.0Exhibition: Neue Galerie New York, USA (13.03.-30.06.2014)
