European Leo Baeck Lecture Series London, 2018-19

Seeing Jews in Art: Networks, Fantasies and Dreams

This season’s topic aims to explore the agency of Jews within the networks shaping visual culture. Spanning from the middle ages to the present, and across a range of different media, it will focus on the point of intersection of Art by Jews with Art about Jews and the complex interplay of Jewish reactions to their depiction in Western art and Gentile attitudes towards Jewish visual culture. How do Jews respond and attempt to re-shape their images, stereotyped by the majority societies surrounding them? How does Jewish material culture influence Western visual culture, and how were Jews entangled with the art world?

Organised by the Leo Baeck Institute London in cooperation with the German Historical Institute London.
