Arts in Exile

Art in Exile

The German National Library – German Exile Archive and Museum

While thousands of artists were forced into exile during the Nazi era from 1933 to 1945, the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic became countries in which people suffering persecution after 1945 were able to seek refuge – and Germany is still seen as a place of refuge today. “Arts in Exile” is a network project: more than 30 domestic and international research institutions, archives, museums and initiatives have contributed research findings and general content to the virtual exhibition. Refugee artists from Nazi Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe are in the main focus of this virtual exhibition, represented by biographies, primary sources like documents or photographs and, of course, artwork.
