The Holocaust and the Problem of Visual Representation
Talk by Peter Weibel (audio recording available, in German)
In the aftermath of World War II, artists saw the world filled with states of affairs and experiences of loss in such a way that made it seem impossible to reach people through conventional art representation. Shaped by the years of the Holocaust, Boris Lurie followed an uncompromising aesthetic program in his collages and artistic statements in order for the key failings of the twentieth century to be visually experienced. Peter Weibel (ZKM Karlsruhe), artist and exhibition curator, will speak about Boris Lurie and visual representation of the Holocaust.
One of the accompanying events for the No Compromises! The Art of Boris Lurie exhibition.
