The V&A in London has published the only surviving full inventory of “Entartete Kunst” (Degenerate Art ) made available to the public.
The list contains confiscated works by the Nazi regime from public institutions in Germany, mostly between 1937 and 1938. The inventory, compiled into two volumes, lists institutions alphabetically by location – from Aachen to Zwickau – and then by location each artist is listed alphabetically. Those with an “x” next to them in the records show those that were destroyed.

HEY TUMBLR DUDES!! I’m selling my work at Art Scape this weekend. I’m in the Brown Center on the MICA campus - it’s the green glass building. Even if you don’t come to buy my art, come see what this awesome FREE festival has to offer!

#the handsome family
sometimes, I flap my arms like a hummingbird
just to remind myself I’ll never fly
sometimes, I burn my arms with a cigarette
just to pretend I won’t scream when I die
