Entartete Kunst

The Semi-Sane Madwoman, our Clipping Service of Daily Infamy, has posted Rachel Maddow's recap of this year's vogue for Retro 30's-style art suppression here.

addendum: and since we're pushing buttons in the Wayback Machine, remember this?


  1. Oh shit.

    On the other hand, this proves that art matters a whole lot. If it didn't, nobody would, um, try to silence it/smash it/fire teachers who play it.

    I don't know if that'll work as silver lining in this story. Let's take it anyway.

  2. No question. Also, attacks on art tend to result in more art. We'll take that, too.

    I wonder if we can expect a revival of the Faustspiel in the days ahead, as things heat up around here prior to the next election.
