Charlotte Salomon produced arguably some of the most powerful and philosophical Modernist art works of the twentieth century in an intensive period of creativity between 1940-42 and yet very few people are aware of her. In this lecture, Griselda Pollock asks why this female Jewish artist, working in exile during the Nazi occupation of Europe, has been maligned and forgotten from Jewish history, Feminist history and Art history.

GRISELDA POLLOCK is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art and Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History (CENTRECATH) member of the Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Leeds, UK. Just published is her major monograph on the German Jewish artist (1917-1943) Charlotte Salomon in the Theatre of Memory (Yale, 2018).
