Leeds Jewish Literary Festival presents Charlotte Saloman and the Theatre of Memory.
Charlotte Salomon and the Theatre of Memory is the first art historical study of a monumental project, ‘Life? Of Theatre?’ created in exile between 1941 and 1942 by the Berlin-born painter, who was captured and transported to her death in Auschwitz in 1943. She was 26 at the time.
This talk by Professor Griselda Pollock will explore her exceptional work.
Griselda Pollock is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art and Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis at the University of Leeds. She has written extensively on the multi-cultural histories of artist-women from the nineteenth century to the present.
Her recent book on Charlotte Salomon (1917-43) is the product of this life-time of research into women’s creativity and contributions to culture.
