The Holocaust Effect in Contemporary Art

holocausteffectThe effect of the Holocaust on the literature of late 20th-early 21st century has been well documented. Its effect in visual representation and the art of second and third generation of survivors is not yet understood. The panel discussion brings together three Bay Area artists—all CCA graduates—whose recent projects have been infused with the theme of the Holocaust, an art historian and a curator in an attempt to define the new visual parameters of the Holocaust effect.

This event is cosponsored by The Judah L. Magnes Museum and the California College of the Arts Visual and Critical Studies Department
