Following the end of World War I, Germany stood at the center of a vibrant art scene. German artists challenged the mainstream by using explosive and liberating styles in visual representation. When Hitler came to power in 1933, however, he attempted to destroy modernism in favor of very traditional art. He organized the Degenerate Art Exhibition in 1937, including some of the best modern art, to demonstrate through mockery its repulsive nature. Examine this view of art through the perspective of the art historian and the political historian.
