  • Ferdinand-Möller-Stiftung


The Ferdinand-Möller-Stiftung was established in 1995 by Angelika Fessler-Möller (1919-2002) and Wolfgang Wittrock (born in 1947) in memory of the art dealer Ferdinand Möller (1882-1956) and his merits in establishing and saving expressionist art.

The foundation sponsors research in the field of expressionism as well as on Nazi art and cultural policies, and supports the documentation of art removed from German museums in 1937 as ‘degenerate’. One important focus of the foundation is the research centre ‘Degenerate Art’ at Freie Universität Berlin, initiated and financed by the foundation, as well as the support of numerous single projects, publications, lecture series, research projects, and colloquia.

The foundation initiated the research and exhibition project about Will Grohmann at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, and for the overall project, it made the largest financial contribution of all the sponsors, including financing the curator.
