Eckhart Gillen, Berlin: Excluded and yet entangled in two dictatorships: The political constructivist Oskar Nerlinger (1893-1969)

February 10, 2021 12:00 PM EST


This zoom lecture series, hosted by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art, New York and sponsored by Allianz Partners, investigates artists whose life and art were impacted by the German Nazi terror regime 1933-1945.

Oskar Nerlinger (1893-1969) was an avant-gardist in the Weimar Republic. He was marginalized as a “formalist” by both the communists and the National Socialists, and yet he allowed himself to be employed by both systems. This lecture examines the mechanisms of these aesthetic and moral adaptations.
