Dossier Gurlitt “Degenerated Art” – confiscated and sold

(Thursday) (Sunday)

The Bundeskunsthalle is concentrating on works of art that were withdrawn owing to Nazi

persecution and on those for which the provenance has not yet been clarified. At the same

time, the exhibition in Bonn addresses the fates of the persecuted artists, art collectors, and

art dealers, juxtaposing their histories with the biographies of the Nazi perpetrators. Additionally

the show hones in on the unprecedented theft of art of the Nazis in the occupied

territories.Kunstmuseum Bern:Dossier Gurlitt. “Degenerated Art” – confiscated and soldNovember 2, 2017, to March 4, 2018Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn: Dossier Gurlitt.
