Small dings/damage at bottom edge of front cover and spine.

This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition "Degenerative Art": The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany, which was organized by the Los Angels County Museum of Art. This is a key work in the field of what was termed 'Degenerate Art' ('Entartete Kunst') by the Nazis. Particularly valuable for its reconstruction of the 'Entartete Kunst' Exhibition held in Munich in 1937 on the basis of existing photographs and documentation, and the touring of versions to other major cities. This book examines the events surrounding the condemnation of modern art by the National Socialists. This book documents one of the most appalling moments in our century's cultural history, but it also reminders us that art and creativity will survive censorship and oppression. Degenerate Art also was the title of an exhibition, held by the Nazis in Munich in 1937, consisting of 650 modernist artworks chaotically hung and accompanied by text labels deriding the art. The National Socialists rejected and censured virtually everything that had existed on the German modern art scene.
