(((Sad Art)))

Paper collage

2016

When the Third Reich purged the Degenerate Art, they sent much of the artwork to live in Berlin's Schloss Niedershonhausen, to await destruction or sale. Gunther Ranft, a Nazi guard at the Schloss,  illustrated the stored art. In a series of collages, I treat Ranft's imagery and photographs of the works that the Reich rejected as material for new art.
