Joes Segal: Art and Crisis

Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) is an interdisciplinary course for students and a series of lectures and activities open to all. The fourth edition of Redelijk Eigenzinnig/Reason and Engage focuses on war, conflict, peace and resistance.

Over the past two centuries, artists have regularly engaged in war and struggle, both in support and in a critical sense. But artists are by no means always in control of the interpretation of their own work. Critics, intellectuals, historians, journalists and politicians formed their own reading of visual art with which they followed their own agenda in times of war and crisis. Referring to a series of case studies (the First World War, the Third Reich and the Cold War) Joes Segal will show us how these dynamics functioned and to what paradoxical relations between art and politics they could lead.

Joes Segal is chief curator at the Wende Museum in Los Angeles and the author of Art and Politics. Between Purity and Propaganda (2016).
