WHY DID THE ARTISTS “SELL OUT?”

Long sequestered and rarely viewed, recent art historical writings have begun to examine the art of Fascism. This series of podcasts, in four parts, attempts to answer a series of questions: what were the goals of Nazi art, who were the Nazi artists – the painters and sculptors – and what was the impact of Nazi art? This podcast discusses the ways in which artists were co-opted by the Nazis, the reasons why artists collaborated with fascism, and the rewards of working for Hitler. This concluding episode asks if it is possible to make “art” if the works were dedicated to the goals of pure evil?
