80 years have passed since the Nazi Regime placed a definite ban on so-called “degenerate art”, organizing an exhibition in Munich in 1937 to publically brand and stigmatize it and, at the same time, holding an exhibition to glorify “pure Arian Art”, with “The Great Exhibition of German Art”.  At the very same time began the lootingof art from museums in occupied territories and from the houses of collectors and Jews. Masterpieces were confiscated, destined for art space Hitler planned to turn into the Louvre of Linz (a project that would remain on paper only), as well as to Carinhall, a private residence belonging to Goering, the other major protagonist in the sacking of Europe.  It is estimated that works of art seized from German Museums totalled over 16.000 and 5 million all over Europe. Artists on the black list were Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, Oskar Kokoschka, Otto Dix, Marc Chagall, El Lissitzky. Written on the walls were comments such as: “Incompetent charlatans”, “An insult to the German Heroes of the Great War”, “Decadence exploited for literary and commercial purposes”. The exhibition on ”degenerate art” was taken on tour to 12 cities in Austria and Germany to set an example. Around 2 million people visited it.
