Emil Nolde "Kreuzigung" 1912 © Nolde Stiftung SeebüllThis was the title of an accompanying programme to the "Good business - Art trade in Berlin 1933 - 1945" exhibition the Mitte Museum offers.

Among other issues, this lecture - in addition to others - researches the question of how the trustful cooperation between Nazi leaders Goebbels and Göring on the one hand and the Evangelischer Kunstdienst (Protestant Art Service) on the other came about and how the sales in the Niederschönhausen Palace were carried out. In this context, the lecture will also address in detail the artists Emil Nolde and Ernst Barlach, and Barlach’s friend, the art dealer Bernhard A. Boehmer.

Speaker: Horsta Krum, theologian and historian

In addition to her research on the Huguenots, the main focus of her work is German Protestantism in the years 1933 to 1945, and French Protestantism during the German occupation from 1940 to 1944.
