“The Black Years” exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum features both art that was created in opposition to the Nazi regime, and pieces the party promoted.
The former was labelled “degenerate”, while others were held up as examples of “Great German art”.
The exhibition includes 60 works of art fitting into at least one of four categories.
They were either created during the National Socialist regime, were deemed degenerate by the Nazis, were created in opposition to the regime or were used by the Nazis for propaganda purposes.
It is widely seen as a rejection of National Socialist ideas of art and beauty.
