Concepts of "German" Art and Architecture

During the Nazi era, art served under defined objectives to disseminate the conceptual ideas of aesthetics of the new world view. This can be particularly noticeable on the monumental public architecture and sculpture of the time. In contrast to the propagated “German Art”, modern and especially expressionistic works were denounced as “degenerate art”.
