About this product
- DescriptionThe Cult of Art in Nazi Germany presents a new interpretation of National Socialism, arguing that art in the Third Reich was t simply an instrument of the regime, but actually became a source of the racist politics upon which its ideology was founded. Through the myth of the Aryan race, a race prounced superior because it alone creates culture, Nazism asserted art as the sole raison d'etre of a regime defined by Hitler as the dictatorship of genius. Michaud shows the important link between the religious nature of Nazi art and the political movement, revealing that in Nazi Germany art was considered to be less a witness of history than a force capable of producing future, the actor capable of accelerating the coming of a reality immanent to art itself.
