Alongside the exhibitions Emil Nolde. A German Legend. The Artist during the Nazi Regime (Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin) and Escape into Art? The Brücke Painters in the Nazi Period (Brücke-Museum), this international colloquium gathers historians, art historians, curators and journalists to critically examine the legacy of Nazi art propaganda.

Participants present the latest research findings on National Socialism and discuss how the multi-faceted and contradictory image of the German art world between 1933 and 1945 can be presented in the institutional framework of an art museum. The kick-off event will take place at the Brücke-Museum; the following lectures and discussions will take place at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.
