Time of the Gods (Germany, 1992, 92 min., doc.)

How could a highly talented sculptor like Arno Breker—who had met French avant-garde artists in Paris in the 1920s and whose work was first considered “degenerate art” by the Nazis—become Adolf Hitler’s preferred sculptor and protégé? This film explores what transformations in power and politics do to art, how much opportunism can be found in “pure” art and whether fascist symbols can ever regain their aesthetic innocence. Intro by Karen Kurczynski, History of Art and Architecture, UMass Amherst
