Zionism Victoria and the Lamm Jewish Library of Australia present Art & Propaganda, an exploration of antisemitism in art through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance with Claudia Hercman.
Can propaganda be considered a form of art? Can art be considered a form of propaganda?
When we consider antisemitism, we often consider the Nazi regime, the Holocaust, and contemporary antisemitism. In this presentation, Claudia Hercman will analyse how antisemitism has been present in art since the early Middle Ages. How this and other types of discrimination were encouraged by political and religious powers, and how these actions paved the way to persecution and genocide.
