The Duality of art

Hitler trying to Beautify Germany
The Great German Art Exhibition was designed to show works that Hitler approved of - paintings and art works of blonde nudes along with idealised soldiers and landscapes.
For example, this statue is representing the spirit of the Nazi Party. Also, a image for German men to follow.

The Degenerate Art Exhibition
The second exhibition, just down the road, showed the other side of "degenerate" art.
Included works of famous German artists such as Max Beckmann, Emil Nolde and Georg Grosz.
Was declared to be degenerate art due to the "deformity" and emaciation of the figures.
Art used for propaganda
This art represented how German people looked like. Which makes fun of their apperances.
The Jewish art that was presented was used for propaganda.
Book has works of art and poetry by Jewish children who lived in the concentration camp Theresienstadt.
