Course Description

Protest can inspire art, and art can become a method of resisting oppression.  Rabbi Wolf-Prusan will explore with us how threats to civil rights and human dignity have prompted such artistic resistance. Napoleon’s invasion of Spain, the horrors of the Holocaust, and the racism that inspired today’s Black Lives Matter movement all inspired striking paintings and prints reflecting their creators reactions to and rejections of what they saw unfolding around them.This course proceeds from the Rabbi’s previous one on such art, adding examples of defiant art created under extreme oppression.  The visual results of their work, art as spiritual resistance, is still worth our attention.  OLLI and Wolf-Prusan will provide it.
