Gurlitt: Status Report Part 2. Nazi Art Theft and its Consequences
April 19–July 15, 2018

Following the exhibition Degenerate Art – Confiscated and Sold the Kunstmuseum Bern is now mounting part two of Gurlitt: Status Report. Under the title of Nazi Art Theft and Its Consequences, Hildebrand Gurlitt’s role as an art dealer in Nazi Germany will be open to discussion with a new comprehensive selection of artworks and new thematic focal points:

The focal points of "Art Dealers in Nazi Germany," "The Art Market Paris (1940–1944)," and "Restitution" foreground the context in which the "Gurlitt art trove" was accrued and thus investigate the interfaces between art-dealing, Nazi persecution policy, and art theft. Gurlitt’s trade relations with Switzerland paradigmatically display the international dimension of dealing with Nazi looted art.

The exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bern is presenting for the very first time the whole spectrum of Cornelius Gurlitt’s legacy, comprising paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings from the 16th to the mid-20th century.

Gurlitt: Status Report Part 2. Nazi Art Theft and Its Consequences is a continuation of the exhibition that was mounted by the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn, augmenting the show with works that have hitherto not been presented and with a new thematic focus.
