Men’s Club Dinner Forum: Art of the Holocaust – Capturing Beauty, Brutality, Hope
Wednesday, February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Art of the Holocaust – Capturing Beauty, Brutality, Hope
A unique lecture on a topic that is not commonly discussed in the context of the Holocaust – the art of the holocaust.
Art is a powerful representation of the horrors, the hope, the anger and the hopelessness experienced by Jews during and after the holocaust.
Guri, an artist, author, lecturer and CEO of a high-tech company (www.GuriStark.com) and an avid learner and teacher of art and history, was born and raised in Israel. He graduated from Technion in Engineering and worked in executive positions in the high-tech industry (CEO, General Manager, Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer). With his passion for art and music, Guri has been offering art lectures for over 15 years. His multi-media lectures provide a unique perspective by combining the artists’ personal biographies, world historical events that influenced the artists and their position in the different art movements of the time.
Through personal stories of victims, survivors and children artists, he will cover real examples of art created by them. We will observe and discuss how art has created a visual, long-living record of the holocaust experienced. How it has been used as evidence for what really happened, how it helped children cope, imagining a better world and how it became a form of resistance by the artists.The memorable lecture will bring a powerful and unique perspective.
This program is open to the entire San Diego community, both men and women. Temple or Men’s Club Membership is not a requirement to attend.
The dinner fee is $18 with an RSVP and $20 without RSVP and includes a deli buffet that will be served at 6:30 pm.
