Rescued Modernism

  • Highlights
In 1937, as everywhere else in Germany, works of classical modernism were removed from the Berlin Kupferstichkabinett on a large scale as part of the National Socialist "Degenerate Art" campaign. The curator at the time, Willy Kurth (1881-1963), bravely saved hundreds of works from imminent loss.

Based on the publication "Die Aktion 'Entartete Kunst' 1937 im Berliner Kupferstichkabinett" by Anita Beloubek-Hammer, published in 2023, the exhibition uses selected works to show what was saved in 1937.


With works by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Wassily Kandinsky, Käthe Kollwitz, Henri Matisse, Edvard Munch and Pablo Picasso, it also illustrates the museum's already outstanding profile in the field of modern art.
