Join Art Historian Natalie Ribkoff for a slide illustrated lecture focusing on the powerful artworks that disturbed Hitler so profoundly that he banished them from public view. From the acidic street scenes of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner to the upside down world of George Grosz and Otto Dix, you will have a first hand look at the “degenerate” artworks featured in the Entartete Kunst Exhibition in Berlin. Following the trail of these modern masterpieces from the 1937 exhibition to the auction houses of Switzerland we’ll discover how the degenerate artworks helped to further Nazi party objectives.
