An Artist of and Aganist His....Museum - Peter Paret

In this public lecture, Peter Paret, Professor Emeritus in the School of Historical Studies, discusses aspects of the work of the sculptor and dramatist Ernst Barlach, a major figure in German modernism. As independent in his politics as in his art, he opposed National Socialism on grounds of common decency, was included in the Degenerate Art Exhibition, and died in 1938 a forbidden but unrepentant modernist.
