  • BERLIN DURING NATIONAL SOCIALISM
    Art from 1933–1945

    The diverse, modern culture of the Weimar Republic ended when the National Socialists took over power in 1933. Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda and president of the newly founded Reich Chamber of Culture, controlled the whole field of culture. The intention was to create “German” art, produced by people of “Aryan” origin. Works by Jewish, oppositional and other “undesirable” artists were degraded as “degenerate”. Artists were removed from office, and banned from teaching, exhibiting or even painting at all. Many were persecuted, arrested and murdered; some were able to escape abroad. Among those artists branded as “degenerate” who remained in Germany, many were forced into isolation but continued to work in secret.
