Please join us for a fascinating lecture by James Glennie, co-curator of the Holt Festival exhibition German Expressionists & The Third Reich and co-editor and contributor to German Expressionism – The Leicester Museum & Galleries’ Collection published alongside the exhibition.

German Expressionists & The Third Reich follows the story of Hitler’s purge on modernist culture of art, music and literature. In addition to works by the German Expressionists, it will also include those by artists that were designated Entartete (degenerate) by the Third Reich. Among them Adler, Arp, Bissier, Bloch, Blumenfeld, Delaunay, Dix, van Dongen, Elkan, Ehrlich, Ernst, Feininger, Goldschmidt, Goroncharova, Gotlieb, Grosz, Hartung, Henri, Klimt, Klopfleisch, Kollwitz, Kupka, Lieberman, List, Lomnitz, Marc, Matisse, Meidner, Mondrian, Munch, Nolde, Picasso, Rohlfs, Rosenbaum, Roualt, Savendy, Schiele and Schwitters.

The story will be illuminated by original ‘20s, ‘30s & ‘40s collages and caricatures, depicting many of the key political and other figures, by Fritz Josefovicz (Joss), who himself escaped to England from Vienna in 1933.

The exhibition is supported by EAAF and includes works from our own Adeane Collection. Tickets are £15 and include refreshments. Your host on the day is Amanda Geitner.
