Art, Exhibition and Erasure in Nazi Vienna

November 1, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Dr. Laura Morowitz, Professor of Art History at Wagner College and Senior Research and Programming Director of the Wagner College Holocaust Center will discuss her newly published book, Art, Exhibition and Erasure in Nazi Vienna (Routledge 2023). Her book examines three exhibitions of contemporary art held at the Vienna Künstlerhaus during the period of National Socialist rule and shows how each attempted to culturally erase elements vilified in Nazi ideology: the City, the Jewess and fin-de-siècle Vienna. Each of the exhibits was large scale and ambitious, part of a broader attempt to situate Vienna as the cultural capital of the Reich, and each aimed to reshape cultural memory and rewrite history.
