Observingarts: KODE Bergen - Art in battle, 4 Sep 2015 to 7 Feb 2016

 Albert Janesch, "Wassersport", (1936)
Deutsche Historische Museum, Berlin

"Art in Battle addresses how art and art institutions were used by the Nazi regime in Germany and in occupied Norway, exploring a dark chapter in Norwegian and European art history. Nazism’s extreme efforts to “purge” society of unwanted elements have deeply marked Western culture. Art functioned in this context as an arena for an ideological battle". More at: KODE
