Hitler versus Picasso and the others – The nazi obsession for art – ART BEATS SERIES 2018

 

There are two ways Nazism put its hands on art: attempting to destroy every trace of the so-called “Degenerate Art” and implementing a systematic looting of classic and modern artworks.

In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize the “Degenerate Art” and one, personally curated by Hitler, to glorify the “Classic Art”.

This film is an amazing journey through 5 exhibitions displaying an incredible number of masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, Gauguin, just to name a few. Linked to each exhibition there are several impressive human and artistic narratives:

“Degenerate Art” and “Great German Art Exhibition”, Munich, July 1937
