Art and Exile. The Archives of the Akademie der Künste Days of Exile
“But we did not emigrate of our own free will.” In a poem written in exile by Bertolt Brecht, persecution and farewell, speechlessness and placelessness are defining themes. The Akademie der Künste houses one of the largest exile archives on art and literature in the German-speaking world. The archives open their doors at every location and provide insights into the estates of artists who had to go into exile between 1933 and 1945.
