As it analyzes a cross section of Holocaust art within the context of art history, Absence\/Presence addresses the discussion head on and explores the interchange between media and horror. The book\'s contributors include case studies from a broad spectrum of artists in North America, Europe, and Israel to examine some of the more dominant themes in these artists\' work. In addition to standard readings of Holocaust art, the essays help illuminate the issues of eugenics; the importance of art for Hitler and the Nazis; the immense pilfering of art that occurred during World War II; and the length and degree of the destruction of European Jewry, which forced artists to reinvent their work through their own fate.\" \"This selection of essays also provides alternative views to more typical readings on the Holocaust, specifically, to the story of the Shoah as a relevant art subject, and to those \"who ha[ve] a right to create art about the Holocaust.\" These issues were the subject of an intense international debate based on an exhibition at New York\'s Jewish Museum titled Mirroring Evil. The retrospective brought to art a series of contemporary perspectives that represented both the outer edges as well as mainstream postmodern thinking concerning representations of the Holocaust. This book, which covers the art from the late 1980s through 2002, includes the work of an array of scholars, curators, and artists from many countries. It will be of great interest to art historians, Jewish scholars, and anyone interested in learning more about the art and artists of the Holocaust.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
