A Conversation on Charlotte Salomon

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 2 PM Online
Murdered while pregnant on arrival at Auschwitz in 1943 at the age of 26, Charlotte Salomon left behind an artistic legacy that is as beguiling as it is perplexing. A single, composite artwork of images, text, and music that she titled Leben? oder Theater? (Life? Or Theater?) comprises 784 paintings produced between 1941 and 1942 in the South of France following brief internment in the French concentration camp at Gurs. Griselda Pollock—author of Charlotte Salomon and the Theatre of Memory—describes Leben? oder Theater? as “an event in the history of modern art,” analyzing Salomon’s paintings through the lenses of feminist art history and Jewish studies. Also joining the conversation is Kerry Wallach, author of Passing Illusions: Jewish Visibility in Weimar Germany.
