March 25, 2020
During the online streamed lecture, Dana Mihăilescu will present the Amy Kurzweil’s debut graphic memoir, Flying Couch (2016), in order to consider how the Holocaust narrative at the core of this graphic narrative is negotiated by the three generations of Kurweil’s family. Hence, she will highlight an ethical, future-oriented use of mediating forms of Holocaust memories for third generation artists.
