The art of the avant-garde, the 'degenerate art', combated by the National Socialists in Germany has been widely researched and exhibited to the public in recent decades.The conformist, 'good' art aligned with National Socialist ideology, in contrast, silently disappeared into warehouses after 1945.Art was supposed to stabilize the system, hearten in difficult times, and communicate values such as a fighting spirit, family, and tradition.This publication knowledgeably shows that the artworks did truly completely lack any critical potential or humanist aspirations. It also documents the inner conflict of the time and juxtaposes works that conformed to the regime with those by critical, persecuted artists.The important question of what happened to the 'good' artists after the end of the war is also addressed.Featuring the work of over 50 artists including Josef Albers, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Paul Klee, L�szl� Moholy-Nagy, and Kurt Schwitters, among others.Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Kunstsammlungen der Ruhr-Universitat Bochum (5 November 2016 - 9 April 2017); Kunsthalle Rostock (27 April - 18 June 2017); and Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie Regensburg (14 July - 29 October 2017).English and German text.
