On the occasion of the theme year “Destroyed Diversity - Berlin during the Nazi period", the Stadtmuseum Berlin dedicates an exhibition to the artists who were banned, persecuted or killed as a result of the Nazi's defamation and destruction of modern art.
The works on show all come from the vast private collection of Dr Gerhard Schneider who has spent his life seeking out surviving works from that dark era of artistic persecution in Germany between 1933 and 1945.
In particular, the exhibition honours those artists whose work risks being forgotten, such as Florenz Robert Schabbon who killed himself in 1934, Lotte B. Prechner who went into hiding in Belgium, or Julius Graumann who was gassed in Auschwitz in 1944.
10.00-18.00 Wed 12.00-20.00. Mon closed.
