Thanks Robb!

Another easy one: the application of a military-like hierarchy to civil society was known as what?

Hi Habu,

Think we need a hint here!
(I thought I recognised your username as a snake! I also see it is a nickname for the SR 71 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habu. Which one did you have in mind :wink: )

regards Robb

Hmmmm. . . what was the guiding principle for the application of a military-like hierarchy to civil government?

Maybe so...

"The ideology of the Führerprinzip sees each organization as a hierarchy of leaders, where every leader (Führer, in German) has absolute responsibility in his own area, demands absolute obedience from those below him and answers only to his superiors. The supreme leader, Adolf Hitler, answered to no one. Giorgio Agamben has argued that Hitler saw himself as an incarnation of auctoritas, and as the living law itself. The Führerprinzip paralleled the functionality of military organizations, which continue to use a similar authority structure today. The justification for the civil use of the Führerprinzip was that unquestioning obedience to superiors supposedly produced order and prosperity in which those deemed 'worthy' would share."

What organisation are we looking for?

Succes!

Well done, Myron!

The German Art Society (Deutsche Kunstgesellschaft), a culturally conservative art group active between 1920 and 1945, sought to defend pure German art. During the Weimar Republic, the Society fought degenerate modernism and by 1932 the Society has supporters in the Nazi party and other rightist organizations. The German Art Society was given a role in organizing degenerate art exhibits during the Third Reich as well as organizing pure German art shows. After 1937, the Nazis ignored the Society as old-fashioned and pressed for a more distinct art form.

Over to the north.

Thank you W,

In 1938 the French Ambassador François-Poncet took some friends to the House of German Art in Munich. In the exhibition he pointed at a painting with four nudes (symbols of the four elements):

http://www.dhm.de/lemo/objekte/pict/625_1/index.html

... and remarked "These, gentlemen, are the five senses", whereupon one of his guests said, "But there are only four of them here." "Quite so," replied François-Poncet, "Taste is missing!"

Tell me who bought this particular painting, and the name of the building where it ended up in during the Third Reich era.
