Image and Remembrance

The Visual Representation of the Holocaust

Arts & Performance, Jewish History

How can one begin to depict the scale of the mass atrocity of The Holocaust through the medium of the visual arts? Exploring artists who have worked in the media of painting, sculpture, installation and performance we will study approaches to memorializing and documenting the shoah. We will look at art work by survivors and contemporary artists who have inherited a legacy of cultural trauma and examine the moral and aesthetic questions that surround artistic representations of the Holocaust.
