Join Humboldt State Lecturer Julia Alderson for a discussion of art during crisis.
Throughout history, governments and political groups have looted and destroyed art to serve their propagandistic purposes - from the ancient Romans, to the Nazis under Adolph Hitler, to ISIS’s recent destruction of the ancient site of Palmyra.
For this episode of My Favorite Lecture, Julia Alderson delivers Looting and Destruction: The Politics of Art in Crisis.
Doors open at 6:30 for a Taste of Arcata reception courtesy Arcata Main Street. The lecture begins promptly at 7:00pm.
This lecture will explore the idea of art looting and destruction over time, in order to better understand the significance of such assaults against culture.
This lecture is being recorded for KHSU's new program/podcast titled "My Favorite Lecture", in which HSU educators give remarkable talks for a community audience.
NOTE: Due to the standing-room-only turnout at the last lecture, we recommend you arrive early to ensure a seat.
