Contemporary art on a gigantic ex-Nazi site? “I get nervous” – Bavaria

A huge art area in Nuremberg exactly where the Nazis wanted to surpass the Colosseum in Rome with gigantomania? The thought makes the art historian Wolfgang Brauneis nervous. He fears that a Nazi building will be recoded.

There has been much discussion about the fact that Nuremberg’s opera house will move to alternative quarters on the former Nazi party rally grounds. The fact that a large area for artists was to be created there was almost ignored. Public dissent? Were hardly audible. This gives the art historian Wolfgang Brauneis, who made a name for himself nationwide as curator of the exhibition “The List of the ‘God-Given’: Artists of National Socialism in the Federal Republic” in the German Historical Museum in Berlin, a stomach ache.
