The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Myths, Images and Imaginings about Jews
A lecture series organised by the Leo Baeck Institute London in cooperation with the German Historical Institute London.
This season’s lecture series seeks to explore the connection of visual narratives in the context of beauty, ugliness and morality with representations of Jews and Jewishness in the Western world from the Middle Ages to the present day. We aim to examine the subject from different historical, social and artistic perspectives ranging from medieval mythology to Orientalism, Zionism, Feminism or modern aesthetics, and through the lens of a selection of diverse media including painting, photography and comics.
The remaining lectures this season will be held at Senate House, Malet St, London WC1E 7HU, and will also be available on Zoom. Places are strictly limited and must be reserved in advance by contacting the Leo Baeck Institute London on [email protected] or by signing up on Eventbrite. Admission is free. Lectures will begin promptly at 6.30pm. Latecomers may not be admitted.
Zoom links will be advertised closer to the dates of individual events in our lecture announcements via email, social media and on our website.
