New York City’s Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art and the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture host “Identity and Migration: Artists and Composers who Fled Persecution.” The Sunday, February 27, program will be at the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in New York at 3 p.m.
The program is sponsored by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in New York.
Consul Yasemin Pamuk, Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in New York, will give the opening remarks.
This program celebrates the launch of an online exhibition, “Identity, Art and Migration” which tells the story of how circumstance impacts selfhood, through the lens of seven artists — Anni Albers, Friedel Dzubas, Eva Hesse, Rudi Lesser, Lily Renee, Arthur Szyk and Fritz Ascher. The exhibition underscores the effect of forced migration on individual identity. For information, go to migration.fritzaschersociety.org.
