ARTH 42.02 Post-War Art from the Middle East: The Case of the Lebanese Civil War

What is the function of art after a long and devastating conflict like the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990)? When cities are destroyed and people are displaced, radical ruptures occur at the physical level but also at the level of people’s understanding of their own history and identity. Much like Adorno’s questioning of the possibility of poetry after Auschwitz, Lina Majdalani and Rabih Mroue have put in question what art could represent after the catastrophic event. These two artists investigate through their art the work of memory, the representation of the body, and the possibility of dialogue through image and performance.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
