  "abstract": "<p>PAUL KLEE AND \u00bbDEGENERATE ART\u00ab This essay is devoted to the Nazis' stigmatization of Paul Klee as a \u00bbdegenerate\u00ab artist. Klee, who was dismissed from his professorship at Kunstakademie D\u00fcsseldorf a few weeks after they took power, was represented in several of the \u00bbchambers of horror\u00ab in 1933/34, which pilloried modern art. Klee's works were also presented in the travelling Degenerate Art Exhibition (1937 to 1941). The article's second focal theme is an investigation into the seizure of Degenerate Art from German museums (including 134 of Klee's works) and its \u00bbexploitation\u00ab by\u00a0the Nazis, which is illustrated using sample provenances. It is clear that all aspects of Nazi art policy and its consequences can be demonstrated using the example of Paul Klee. The essay relates to the book currently in preparation, \u00bbPaul Klee and \u203aDegenerate Art\u2039 \u2014 the controversy surrounding modern art in Germany during the twenties and thirties\u00ab, which the author plans to publish, together with Stefan Frey.</p>",
