Artist as Witness: Cultural Production, Conflict, and Human Rights in Syria
10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Through seven years of war, Syrian artists have played a crucial role as witnesses to the devastation of their country, and to the suffering and fortitude of its people. This one-day conference explores Syrian cultural producers’ varied responses to the ongoing conflict. Visual artists, playwrights, musicians, and filmmakers invoke, critique, and give voice to experiences of oppression, trauma, exile, and loss. Wartime works reflect an intensification of the outrage, longing, ambivalence, irony, and contradiction that have long imbued Syrian expressive culture. This conference showcases rarely seen works by Syrian artists, and places their creators in dialogue with a young generation of Syrian academics and activists.

This is a Lehman Center for Human Rights and Peace Studies Eighth Annual Conference. It is co-sponsored by the Leonard Lief Library and the Department of Anthropology.
