Testimony across the Disciplines: Cultural and Artistic Responses to Genocide

Event Information

Inspired Testimony: QCC Students Respond to Genocide through Art, Research and Creative Writing
Thursday, April 16, 2015, at 5pm
   —   A student-led exhibition at the QCC Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives (KHRCA)

Event Description

This two-month long exhibition at the KHCRA will showcase QCC students’ artistic responses to genocide using painting, drawing, poetry, photography, and essays. The exhibition will serve as a capstone project for the NEH Challenge Grant interdisciplinary pedagogy project and will reflect based on their research and response to immersion genocide studies in various disciplines and having been exposed to various colloquia.

This exhibit will also facilitate student work in writing and collecting memories on postcards, based on a similar installation on the Dominican-Haitian border where participants communicated their memories or lack of knowledge of the 1937 genocidal massacre in the Dominican Repbulic. Scherezade Garcia-Vazquez will lead the postcard project.

The exhibition will be created, curated, and assembled by QCC students.
