Emy Roeder and the documenta

Julia Voss is co-curator of the current exhibition “documenta. Politics and Art”. In this blog post, she reports on Emy Roeder, one of the few female artists featured at the first documenta. Voss also reports on the other things she unearthed in the course of her research on Roeder relating to Arno Breker (a prominent artist during the Nazi regime), to the murdered Jewish artist Rudolf Levy, and, most notably, to the art historian and documenta cofounder Werner Haftmann.
