HAVC 135B : German Art 1905-1945

Great German Art Exhibitions

The Great German Art Exhibitions were of central importance for the Nazi policy of art and culture. They demonstrated both the self-image of the ‘Third Reich’ as a nation of culture and the artistic concept of the Nazis. According to the catalogue from 1937, only artistic “peak performances” that “give expression to the greatness of the new era, born from blood and soil, from national socialist attitude and ideology” should be put on display.
