Art & Anti-Semitism
Tuesday, December 6
11am-12:30pm (PT), 12-1:30pm (MT), 1-2:30pm (CT), 2-3:30pm (ET)
When talking about antisemitism, people often think about the Nazi regime and contemporary antisemitism, maybe about the Spanish Inquisition and other events within the past couple of centuries. However, anti-Semitism has been expressed in visual art since the early Middle Ages. This and other types of discrimination were encouraged by political and religious powers, all which paved the way to persecution and genocide. Jews have been depicted as monsters, sub-humans, animals or even demons.
Join our professional guide & lecturer – Claudia – for this thought-provoking lecture and see an array of paintings, sculptures, reliefs, and gargoyles through the ages, each providing clear evidence of an anti-Semitic agenda. These images were the political cartoons and posters of the age…and most remain visible today.
Save! Register by Dec 4th for “Early Bird” pricing!
Our wonderful Argentinian guide & lecturer – Claudia – is not only a translator but also a sculptor and painter, whose main subjects are Memory and Uprooting, in honor of her four grandparents who emigrated from Poland to Argentina in the ´30s.
Claudia was born and raised in Buenos Aires in the Argentinian Jewish community. Twenty years ago, she became bored of translating books with a computer as her only company, so she decided to study tourism and history. She has been conducting city, art and Jewish tours ever since, and enjoying every single moment of it.
