The International Reaction to the 'Degenerate' Art Campaign

The International Reaction to the 'Degenerate' Art Campaign

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The National Socialist exhibition of “Degenerate Art” in Munich was visited by over two million people during the summer of 1937. Abroad too, the show made headlines, widely reported across the French, British and American press. This talk will explore the attempts made in the following months to counter this attack on German modernist art. The most important of these: the exhibition of Twentieth Century German Art, which took place at London’s New Burlington Galleries in the summer of 1938. In particular the talk will explore the vital role of German émigrés in this ground-breaking exhibition, both as organisers and as lenders.

Cost: Free of Charge
