Art Beats: Hitler Vs Picasso And The Others Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Running time96 minutes
  • GenreDocumentary

An extraordinary account of how the Nazis looted the art of Europe and sought to eliminate works which contradicted Hitler’s Aryan vision. Works in the avant-garde styles - Cubism, Surrealism, Expressionism and other modernist genres -were deemed cosmopolitan and communist, and termed ‘degenerate’ art by the Third Reich. This documentary is based on three main sources: the exhibition ‘Degenerate Art’ which opened in Munich in July 1937, and was the Nazi regime’s own exhibition of what was considered despicable, low art; the history of the Paris gallery ‘21 rue La Boétie’, owned by Paul Rosenberg, a prominent Jewish art collector of ‘degenerate’ works; and the collection of Cornelius Gurlitt, which consisted of works of art plundered from Jewish families during the war. The result is a treasure-trove of sensational art works and a timely and compelling account of a regime obsessed with its own cultural identity and destruction.
