SPOT ON: 1937. The campaign „Degenerate Art“in Düsseldorf

 

Under Nazi dictatorship more than 1.000 works of art from the art collections of the city of Düsseldorf were confiscated in 1937. Eighty years after the measures which, in many respects, had grave and far-reaching consequences, Museum Kunstpalast addresses this event by way of a number of paintings, prints, sculptures and documents.
