Details
Dr. Michael Berkowitz, University College London will give a lecture on Transforming the Island: Refuge Jewish Photographers in Britain Britain, 1860-2016. Britain is widely respected for taking photography seriously. It is highly unlikely that photography in the country would have evolved as it did without the roles played by Jews, especially Jewish emigres. While many were seeking better opportunities, there also were those who escaped to Britain in the wake of repression and especially the Nazi menace. In part, British visual culture was the creation of refugees such as Stefan Lorant and Helmut Gernsheim, and most recently, Annie Leibovitz, whose fascinating relationship with the Queen reveals a rich history of the Jewish engagement with photography in Britain. $5 for Museum Members, Non-Members $10, Free for students with valid ID.
