What is this about - Between Protected content 1945, the National Socialist regime-controlled artistic work in Germany. Partic­u­larly artists who were perse­cuted based on their reli­gion, descent, or polit­ical views fled into exile due to threats from the govern­ment. But what happened to the artists who remained in the country?

In the large overview exhi­bi­tion ART FOR NO ONE. Protected content , the SCHIRN is showing the different strate­gies and scopes of action employed by artists who did not seek or find any affil­i­a­tion with the National Socialist regime. Based on 14 selected biogra­phies, the exhi­bi­tion shows that the artistic work of this time was deter­mined by more than just apathy, stand­still, and hope­less­ness.

The artists repre­sented are Willi Baumeister, Otto Dix, Hans Grundig, Lea Grundig, Werner Heldt, Hannah Höch, Marta
Hoepffner, Karl Hofer, Edmund Kesting, Jeanne Mammen, Ernst Wilhelm Nay, etc.
