|Description: ||"From March 17 through June 30, 2002, The Jewish Museum will present Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art, an exhibition accompanied by extensive educational programs, forums for discussion and a major publication. At the core of this initiative is a selection of recent works by thirteen internationally recognized artists, all of whom are one or two generations removed from the Holocaust and who make new and daring use of imagery taken from the Nazi era. Departing from earlier art relating to the Holocaust, which has tened to focus on the victims, these works confront us with the Nazis' faces, their apparatus of power, their notoriously effeective propoganda. The artists emply the cerebral language of conceptual art to bring this highly charged imagery out of the past and into the present, prompting us to re-examine our understanding of the forces that produced the Holocaust. Drawing unnerving conneections between teh imagery of the Third Reich and today's consumer culture, the artists sharpen our awarreness of present-day techniques of persuasion and symbols of oppression, and lead us to question how images shape our perception of evil." http://www.thejewishmuseum.org/site/pages/content/exhibitions/special/mirroring_evil/mirroring.html|
