Kampfkunst – Kunstkampf. Kunst und Kontexte im Nationalsozialismus

Bernadette Reinhold
Art Sciences and Art Education, Art History
2023S, scientific seminar (SEW), 2.0 ECTS, 1.0 semester hours, course number S04340

Description

During the years of National Socialism, art and artists were massively instrumentalized for propaganda purposes and put under rigid state control. With the founding of the Reich Chamber of Culture, located in the Propaganda Ministry headed by Joseph Goebbels, the regime established guidelines to control and, if necessary, censor or destroy future and past art production. Through the critical analysis of primary texts and with a focus on the visual arts, the seminar will trace the basic characteristics of the National Socialist understanding of art. Ongoing internal conflicts (e.g. with regard to the understanding of modernism) will be discussed and special attention paid to the National Socialist exhibition system (e.g. "degenerate art").

Examination Modalities

Class attendance is mandatory to pass the seminar from the first unit onwards - the SE is progressive in content, therefore continuous participation is required; active participation and preparation of the reading assignments; presentation incl. handout; written paper on a topic from the seminar.

Comments

The seminar will be held in a co-teaching format together with Bernadette Reinhold and Christina Wieder. For this reason, you have to register as well at her course of the same name. Max. 15 persons.

The seminar will be held in German.
