“Haus der Deutschen Kunst” Artists’ Index – live online seminar


Practical information

Reservation required
Free Admission

Event overview

The index was discovered in 2004 during the scholarly indexing of Haus der Kunst’s archives. The index constitutes one of the central documents of the „Große Deutsche Kunstausstellungen“ (Great German Art Exhibitions). Over 9,000 artists submitted works to a total of eight shows in the “Haus der Deutschen Kunst”. These events were considered the most important shows for the presentation and sale of “German” art. From 1938 onwards, every application was recorded in the artists’ index.

In a brief lecture, Sabine Brantl, curator of the Archive and head of the administrative department of history, will discuss the artists’ index as well as its background and function. In addition, various research options will be presented and explored to determine which findings this document can provide for a public discussion of Nazi art.

The seminar is intended for academics, scholars, journalists, students, and individuals who are interested in history and wish to expand their source-based knowledge of art and the art market under National Socialism. The live format allows participants to ask questions, about individual artists, for example, at any time.
