About Kunst

During the late 19th century, a German Jewish philosopher by the name of Max Nordau, developed the notion of degenerate art, otherwise known in German as 'entartete Kunst.' Nordau's theories were based on the pseudo-scientific ramblings of a criminologist named Cesare Lombroso, who contended that criminals were born with so-called atavistic degeneracy. Criminals were criminals through and through, and no education or training could prevent them from viciously acting out.Nordau perversely adapted entartete Kunst in his speculations about art. He contended that Symbolists, English Aestheticists, and French Impressionists all suffered from degenerate brain disorders, which caused them to create quirky, impure works of art. Ironically, Nordau's theories were themselves perverted by the Germans who seized control of their country during the National Socialist revolution and established the Weimar Republic.The Nazis employed Max Nordau's Kunst theory of degenerate art as a justification for the ethnic cleansing of their society. Their twisted philosophy suggested that only racially pure artists could create pure paintings. Works of foreigners, Jews, and intellectuals were inherently the manifestations of damaged brains and should therefore be annihilated by whatever means possible.The Nazi's rejection of Impressionism and its offshoots actually mirrored the less radical rejections of the Impressionist philosophy that were simultaneously going on throughout Europe, United States, and Russia in the 1930s. Fortunately, the notion of degenerate art was conclusively rejected after the Allies defeated the Germans in World War II, and less didactic forms of classic-ism took over.
