HAVC 135B : German Art 1905-1945

Degenerate Art

Degenerate art is a translation of the German term Entartete Kunst used by Adolf Hitler for art that did not fit his definition of “good” German art, which included most modern art, including Cubism, Expressionism, Impressionism, Futurism, and Dada. This art was associated with moral and racial degradation.
