There's a tendency some people (including me) have of thinking original Nazis murdered and tortured and the new Nazis harass and disinform, even though when I stop to think about it, I remember that both do both.
This part of the Wikipedia article on Kandinsky
made me stop and recheck that classification again today:
Due to right-wing hostility, the Bauhaus left Weimar and settled in Dessau in 1925. Following a Nazi smear campaign the Bauhaus left Dessau in 1932 for Berlin, until its dissolution in July 1933. Kandinsky then left Germany, settling in Paris.
Harassment and disinformation, of course, were foundational to the Nazi movement, but sometimes the mass murder pushes that part out of your brain.
It also struck me that much of Kandinsky's career was conducted during times when the world was fucking terrible. WWI, the rise of Soviet Communism, the rise of the Nazis, WWII. He kept on doing his thing nonetheless.
