Abstract:

Opens with introductory remarks by series producer Todd Lincoln.

Using several essays by Lawrence Weschler as a point of departure, the panelists explore the role of the artist in a despotic, fascistic, and/or genocidal state. Factors influencing the artist's response to such regimes are examined, whether the response is one of collusion, opposition, or an attempt to work independently of the regime's dominance. Debate ensues over perceived reactionary and misogynistic impulses within literary and artistic avant-garde movements under fascism and other governmental systems. It is asserted that, in addition to art and literature, language itself can become politicized under extremist regimes. Examples are drawn from recent years in Bosnia, and from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. A question and answer session with the audience concludes the discussion.
