Armenian Ceramics: How the Art of a Genocide Survivor Changed the Face of Jerusalem
Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies Brandeis University
Illustrated lecture with Sato Moughalian, author of “Feast of Ashes – The Life and Art of David Ohannessian.” Joining for Q&A: Marc Mamigonian, Director of Academic Affairs, National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR). Ms. Moughalian detailed the lineage of her grandfather David Ohannessian’s ceramic tradition, reconstructing her grandfather’s history and legacy in Armenian pottery. She spoke about the process of coming to terms with her family’s past, the ways in which that served as an impetus to excavate and reconstruct her grandfather’s history through archival research, and the importance of preserving the stories of peoples displaced through migration. Cosponsored with the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR).
