  • Isolation under National Socialism
    Art from 1933–1945

    In the context of National Socialist cultural policy, under the NS regime artists were persecuted if they were Jewish in origin, represented an oppositional standpoint, or belonged to the cultural avant-garde. Many were compelled to leave the country. But there was also a large number of artists who remained in Germany despite this political pressure – some because they had no alternative. Most of them inevitably withdrew from public life into the isolation of their studios, to the provinces, or went underground. Only a few were courageous enough, despite censorship and persecution, to continue working from a position of resistance. Many sought fresh challenges and themes in their work or developed a new pictorial language in order to maintain their existence as artists.
