3rd Czech-Israeli Workshop on Visual Antisemitica
CALL FOR PAPERS
„Again and again it starts, the persecution of the Jews, vile in its nature. A spectre from the spiritual dark ages, it returns again in all its forms. All we have done is create a new technical term for this ancient sin of mankind, and describe as antisemitism what was before simply called hatred of the Jews.“
3rd Czech-Israeli Workshop
Prague, 25 September 2018
In what way has antisemitism influenced fine art in the Czech lands? Is there an embedded anti-Semitic iconography? How can we define anti-Judaism and antisemitism in relation to their visual products?
The Workshop will deal primarily with questions of how to write about the visual history of antisemitism and exhibit anti-Semitic works to the public without contributing to the support of hate movements.
Especially welcome are methodological contributions focusing on the theme of visual antisemitism in the Czech lands from the Middle Ages to the present day.
We invite submissions from those interested in active participation in the form of a proposal (the title of the contribution and a brief résumé – max. 800 characters) by 15 June 2018 at the latest to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information can be obtained from the same address. The length of the contribution should not be more than 20 minutes;
workshop languages Czech and English. We plan to publish the contributions as a collective monograph. – Eva Janáčová, Institute of Art History of the Czech Academy of Sciences
