JWST 315 - Jews, Jewish Identity and the Arts

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)


Diasporist Manifestos

Late 20th-century painter R. B. Kitaj theorized and practiced what he conceived of broadly as “diasporist art,” and more specifically, in his own case, as “Jewish art.”  The course examines his practice, and that of other artists (such as
Judy Chicago, Guillermo Kuitca and Helène Aylon), through a close reading of Kitaj’s Diasporist Manifestos, including discussion of some of his principal theoretical sources in the work of Walter Benjamin, Aby Warburg, Gershom Scholem, and Emmanuel Levinas. 

Prof. Bush

One 2-hour period and individual conferences with the instructor.
