Degenerate art is the term used by the Nazis to describe the Modernism used to degrade popular taste. The German phrase is entatartete Kunst. In Wiki Part II it is claimed that there were changes in the arts. This is true; they were made degenerate. Adolf was right. You could say the same about a lot of Hollywood's output but then it is also run largely by Jews. In Berlin after the First World War the Jews were trying to take over politically, using e.g. the Communist Party of Germany, as well as intellectually. Giles Auty, an artist in his own right explains better than I can in Postmodernism Versus Civilization.
Pornography is another, very profitable form of degeneracy, with Jews at the forefront. Similarities to Sexual Bolshevism are more than mere coincidence. The Wiki does acknowledge Joe Stalin's approach but not the involvement of Jews like the homosexual, Eisenstein.
Degenerate Art ex Wiki
Degenerate art is the English translation of the German entartete Kunst, a term adopted by the Nazi regime in Germany to describe virtually all modern art. Such art was banned on the grounds that it was un-German or Jewish Bolshevist in nature, and those identified as degenerate artists were subjected to sanctions. These included being dismissed from teaching positions, being forbidden to exhibit or to sell their art, and in some cases being forbidden to produce art entirely.
Degenerate Art was also the title of an exhibition, mounted by the Nazis in Munich in 1937, consisting of modernist artworks chaotically hung and accompanied by text labels deriding the art. Designed to inflame public opinion against modernism, the exhibition subsequently traveled to several other cities in Germany and Austria.
While modern styles of art were prohibited, the Nazis promoted paintings and sculptures that were traditional in manner and that exalted the "blood and soil" values of racial purity, militarism, and obedience. Similarly, music was expected to be tonal and free of any jazz influences; films and plays were censored.
The Wikipedia sounds hostile to Adolf Hitler but does not give us any reason for believing he was wrong about Art or about Jews for that matter. He knew they were trying to steal Germany. They got Palestine, the Stolen Land instead. The art angle was an aspect of Cultural Marxism
Degenerate Art ex Wiki Part II
The early twentieth century was a period of wrenching changes in the arts. In the visual arts, such innovations as cubism, Dada and surrealism—following hot on the heels of symbolism, post-Impressionism and Fauvism—were not universally appreciated. The majority of people in Germany, as elsewhere, did not care for the new art which many resented as elitist, morally suspect, and too often incomprehensible [ or downright ugly perhaps but the Wiki is not going to tell us that - Editor ].
Under the Weimar government of the 1920s, Germany emerged as a leading center of the avant-garde—the birthplace of Expressionism in painting and sculpture, of the atonal musical compositions of Arnold Schoenberg, and the jazz-influenced work of Paul Hindemith and Kurt Weill. Films such as Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) and F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922) brought Expressionism to cinema.
The Nazis viewed the culture of the Weimar period with disgust. Their response stemmed partly from a conservative aesthetic taste [ as distinct from a taste for ugliness - Ed. ], and partly from their determination to use culture as a propaganda tool. On both counts, a painting such as Otto Dix's War Cripples (1920) was anathema to them. It unsparingly depicts four badly disfigured veterans of the First World War, then a familiar sight on Berlin's streets, rendered in caricatured style. Featured in the Degenerate Art exhibition, it would hang next to a label accusing Dix—himself a volunteer in World War I—of "an insult to the German heroes of the Great War".
As dictator, Hitler gave his personal taste in art the force of law to a degree never before seen. Only in Stalin's Soviet Union, where Socialist Realism was the mandatory style, had a state shown such concern with regulation of the arts. In the case of Germany, the model was to be classical Greek and Roman art, seen by Hitler as an art whose exterior form embodied an inner racial ideal [ Presumably in Hitler And The Artists - the idea seems fairly implausible - Editor ].
The reason for this, as Henry Grosshans points out, is that Hitler "saw Greek and Roman art as uncontaminated by Jewish influences. Modern art was [seen as] an act of aesthetic violence by the Jews against the German spirit. Such was true to Hitler even though only Liebermann, Meidner, Freundlich, and Marc Chagall, among those who made significant contributions to the German modernist movement, were Jewish. But Hitler [...] took upon himself the responsibility of deciding who, in matters of culture, thought and acted like a Jew."
The supposedly "Jewish" nature of all art that was indecipherable, distorted, or that represented "depraved" subject matter was explained through the concept of degeneracy, which held that distorted and corrupted art was a symptom of an inferior race [ a circular argument - Ed. ]. By propagating the theory of degeneracy, the Nazis combined their anti-Semitism with their drive to control the culture, thus consolidating public support for both campaigns.
A better justification but still wrong.

Jew Sits On A ‘Black Woman’ Chair On Martin Luther King Day [ 26 January 2014 ]
We are naturally horrified by this gross failure of good taste & Racism. The Main Stream Media were tactful enough not to tell us that the perpetrator, Dasha Zhukova is a Jew or that she is living in sin with Roman Abramovich, another Jew who is widely thought to be a very rich thief, one who robbed Russia blind. This chair is what naughty Adolf called Degenerate Art. He had views about the producers thereof, which is why he put them in Concentration Camps. The perpetrator of this 'Objet d'art' is Bjarne Melgaard. I am sure that Adolf would have had no doubts about him.
