June 2 until July 29, 2020

Exhibition at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte

 

Painter, graphic artist and publisher Harald Pickert (1901–1983) spent six years of his life at different concentration camps. An outspoken critic of the National Socialist regime, he was interned for political reasons in 1939. After he was liberated from the Dachau concentration camp, in 1945, he captured his terrible experiences and trauma in drawings. A number of works from Pickert’s cycle titled Die Pestbeulen Europas. Naziterror in Konzentrationslagern, 1939-45 (Buboes of Europe. Nazi Terror at Concentration Camps, 1939-45), are on display as part of the exhibition Tell me about yesterday tomorrow. The Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte is presenting further works from the cycle, including preliminary sketches, in 2020 as part of an exhibition in the north atrium on the first floor.
