Art in the Places of Death. An interview with Prof. Halina Taborska
"Halina Taborska's book (...) is a peculiar study of the aesthetics of an anti-humanistic act. In fact it introduces such "aesthetics" to the readers, and we are presented with a very carefully prepared documentation of various objects, material and spatial shapes, "installations", murals, museum organizations and documentary activities. These are various shapes in the public space which mediate our perception of an unimaginable crime or "blinding” shapes that protect us from the damages of seeing it again. By bringing this collection of practices together, the book shows their character and multiplicity. The research material gathered in the publication and the scholarly approach make it a must-read not only in the study of war crimes in Europe, but also in the study of symbolic representation of mass crimes - especially in the field of cultural studies, cultural anthropology and art history.” (Prof. Jan Stanisław Wojciechowski, Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw - excerpt from the review on the cover).
Bar-Ilan University stands with students, lecturers, researchers, and academic staff from Ukraine with special assistance
Bar-Ilan University identifies with the challenging situation that the Ukrainian people are facing, and has therefore established a special fund to assist guest researchers, lecturers, undergraduate and graduate students who come to Bar-Ilan University. We invite Ukrainian students to come study in any of our English language degree programs and to integrate into our existing research groups. Ukrainian and Russian speaking students can be mentored in their native language by Bar-Ilan students, thus ensuring a smoother absorption into campus life. Additionally, the university’s clinic networks are available to provide any necessary emotional, social or legal assistance if so needed.
