Training- Strength of the Creative Spirit: Artistic Resistance During the Holocaust
3:30 pm - 5:00 pmThis presentation will identify specific themes found
in Holocaust artwork, including identity formation,
resiliency, permanence, and expression, and explore
them through an existential lens. Issues of empathy,
burnout and the role of the art therapist as witness will
be also be considered in relation to the artwork.
Images of Holocaust artwork will be shown and
discussed. The presenter will share her own
experience viewing Holocaust artwork and how it has
guided her art therapy practice. Participants will then
have an opportunity to create their own artwork in
response to the lecture, taking into consideration the
elements found in Holocaust artwork.
