The volume takes a critical look at the fates and the artistic praxis of the former "Brucke" members in the years after 1933. On the basis of numerous sources which have hitherto not been analyzed, today's popular image of Expressionism, its vilification as "degenerate" and the creation of the legend after the end of the Second World War are examined: how much scope for action was there and how should we evaluate the narratives of "inner emigration" and the "zero hour" today?
