<![CDATA[Martin Norton Lecture - R.B. Kitaj: Painting the Way Home]]> 23/06/2015 – With Dr Aaron Rosen (King's College London)]]> 23/06/2015 : With Dr Aaron Rosen (King's College London)



The philosopher Martin Buber insisted that before there could be a Jewish art there must be "a homeland out of which it develops".

An examination of R.B. Kitaj's Diasporist art, however, suggests that Buber might have got things the wrong way around: it is not so much that a homeland creates art, but that art might create a home. Perhaps, this lecture will suggest, the task of Jewish art is to build a Jewish home, to enable a Jewish life - anywhere.

Dr. Aaron Rosen is the Lecturer in Sacred Traditions and the Arts at King’s College London. He is the author of Imagining Jewish Art (Legenda, 2009) and Art and Religion in the 21st Century (Thames and Hudson, 2015).
