The exhibition 'ART IN BATTLE' deals with battles over art initiated by Nazi policies and European conquests on several arenas.
Expounding the problems of the overfamiliar dichotomy of Degenerate versus Great German art, it examines propaganda exhibitions in occupied Norway as well as hitherto unseen art by soldiers stationed in Norway. This exceptional catalogue both documents this ground-breaking show and assembles leading experts on the history and ideology of Nazi cultural campaigns in both Germany and Norway to initiate a fresh discussion of the relationships between centre and periphery within the artworlds of the Third Reich.
Beyond historical re-assessment, this project also asks more pressingly: How do we encounter these battles over art today?
