Recovering Memory: Art and Historic Silence
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
Vivian J. Prins Artistic Resident Zuzanna Hertzberg discusses her practice of recovering memory, mainly herstories of Jewish women, as a tool for combating cultural and political oppression and increasing fascism. In the artivist (art + activism) practice, she brings archives out into the streets and other public spaces. The aim of her actions is construction of a new archive accessible to all.
She will present the archival research she is conducting at CJH in the form of artistic practices and interventions: bringing their results into the present, she targets the social body as means of healing from non-memory. In addition, she will speak about art as a form of education, capable of functioning in almost every type of public space.
This talk focuses on three of the artist’s long-term ongoing projects which deal with the resistance of women during the Shoah; Jewish-Ukrainian women anarchists; and a series of works dedicated to the International Brigades.
