About The Book
Piotr Uklański, a New York based artist, has put together a most surprising and at the same time simple series of pictures. With them he has created an art book consisting of 160 portraits of movie actors playing Nazis. This volume is as much about history as it is about the industry of entertainment. In 1998, The Observer, London, wrote about these compelling and at the same time estranging portraits: “If you are an actor, chances are that you will play a Nazi, or at least a cruel German officer in the Second World War. How do you make yourself look the part? First comes the matter of expression. Mug up on verbal cliches: ‘ice-cold eyes’, ‘thin, compressed lips’, with if possible, ‘the hint of cynical smile playing around the corners of the mouth’. An ‘air of cold command’, rigid jaw muscles denoting ‘utter ruthlessness’, a tiny flare of nostrils to suggest unspeakable depths of sadism. Fine! Now put on the gear: the tunic with its collar-tabs of SS lightning flashes, the tall black cap with eagle, swastika and death’s head. Stunning! Now all you need is that gargling accent unlike any noise ever uttered by a real German.”
