Eugenics in the art

Gert Germeraad shows his last portraits.
"On Racial Biology" (Eugenics) are based upon pictures from the Swedish Institute of Racial Biology in Uppsala (1921-1958) - we see a number of portraits of people who were victims of Herman Lundborg and other eugenicists. Germeraad's work is a way to restore the dignity and identity of these people.
