Professor Roman Nieczyporowski will talk about art in the context of the Holocaust.  After WW2, Adorno observed that the creation of art must cease or be transformed, exploring the challenge of beauty in poetry and art within the question: is it possible to make art after the holocaust?  A subject of focus for artists such as Joseph Beuys, Anselm Keifer and many others.  Taking examples of art from the time I will show how they attempted to resolve this conflict and how the concept of Holocaust Memorial has evolved.
