Symposium on Art in a State of Siege
Reception to follow
This year’s Avenali Chair in the Humanities, Harvard art historian Joseph Leo Koerner, joins a panel of scholars to discuss the role of art in a society in which freedom is radically curtailed, such as Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa. Panelists engage with audience members in lively discussion about creative expression under an emergency “state of siege."
