Orientalist Genealogies: The Split Arab /Jew Figure Revisited
Professor Ella Shohat, New York University, offers a genealogical reading of Orientalist visual culture and its shifting imaginary of Muslims and Jews in the wake of the Enlightenment and colonialism. Tracing contemporary depictions of the Arab /Jewish divide back to representations in 19th century painting and photographs, Shohat provides a historical lens to consider critical representations by contemporary artists such as Jumana Manna. Programmed in collaboration with The Mosaic Rooms.
