Avenali Lecture with Joseph Leo Koerner

Art in a State of Siege
Thursday, May 10, 2018

Joseph Leo Koerner examines Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Delights — approaching the painting as a representation of a world without history and without law. The discussion emerges from a larger project in which Koerner explores the relationship between art and freedom under a range of emergency “states of siege,” including apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany.
