War and art
During conflicts, artworks are protected, instrumentalized or destroyed. WW2 is an outstanding example of the fate of art in times of war. Museums' artworks were hidden or stoled, avant-garde art was destroyed or labelled degenerate, and Jewish collectors were robbed. Check out our playlist to learn more about this crazy historical period!

World War Two was the bloodiest, biggest, and most destructive war of all time, decimating entire countries and taking the lives of millions. In this episode we’ll be looking at both short- and longer-term repercussions of World War Two on the art world. But as you’ll hear, even events and actions that occurred in the years immediately after the end of the war are still affecting things today.
