Wild Visionary: The Jewish World of Maurice Sendak’s Artistry

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

As a child in a family of Yiddish-speaking Polish immigrants, Maurice Sendak was regaled with real-life horror stories of life in Poland and the loss of family members in Nazi death camps. Fear of the “other” was a daily reality. Moskowitz engages us with the life of a man who appealed to the fantasies of children who needed to escape from the realities of a hostile world in which Jews were the “other”. He gave shape to the fantasies of children who could fly or grow sideways when society or family circumstances prevented them from growing upward or moving forward. They were haunted by a past they did not directly experience.

Join us as Golan Moskowitz investigates the evolution of Maurice Sendak’s artistic vision and its appeal to American, Jewish, and queer audiences.
