This research project explores the artistic strategies of visual artists who went into exile during National Socialism. What influence does exile have on the artistic strategies of visual artists in times of terror and dictatorship? These strategies will be studied by editing the correspondence between two artists who fled Germany because of their political conviction. George Grosz (1893-1959), a leading figure of Dada and New Objectivity emigrated to New York, and Herbert Fiedler (1891-1962) sought refuge in the Netherlands.
