Art and the Holocaust

Instructor(s): Paul Jaskot

This course will analyze the history of the genocide of the European Jews, and its connection to antisemitic art and cultural policy during the Nazi period. With a sound understanding of the development of oppressive policies against the Jews, and looking at a variety of media (painting, architecture, film, photography, design), the course will explore the complicated relationship between developing racist policies and the world war as they impacted and were in turn influenced by artists. Examines not only artists involved in the Nazi state, but also those who resisted in exile or were its victims.
