Race and Visual Culture under National Socialism
This exhibition, presented by The Wolfsonian-FIU at the Frost Art Museum, complements a course about the Holocaust taught by Oren Stier, guest curator of the exhibition, offered by FIU's Religious Studies Department in the spring 2013. By showing graphic design, paintings, ceramics, publications, media artifacts, and other items, the exhibition exposes the attempt by the Nazi Party to promote the idea of a racially pure, "Aryan" nation in both popular and high cultural forms—a campaign that culminated in military aggression and the Holocaust.
The exhibition will be augmented by a lecture series, "Material and Visual Culture of the Holocaust," organized by FIU's Jewish Studies Program. All events will be free and open to the public, but registration is required.
