The depravity of Nazi sculptureIn its public buildings, the Nazi party wanted to display both sculpture and architecture with imposing grandiosity.The works of the leading sculptors of the Third Reich (from Arno Breker to Georg Kolbe and Josef Thorak, among many others) conferred a physicality, examples of “Arian” superiority, to the racist ideology of Nazism. The primacy of “beauty” was intended to make the Nazi State look like the teacher of what was beautiful, paving the way for the selection and declassification of those who did not conform to the rules of beauty and individuals of “impure race”.Wolbert's thesis is that the attraction exerted by the nudes shows the extent to which Nazi sculptors were implicit in the horrific exterminations carried out by the Third Reich.
