Panel Discussion
European Modernism and Spirituality

In conjunction with the exhibition Fritz Ascher: Expressionist

Throughout much of the 20th century, secularism has dominated Western thought, yet art has often offered both overt and occult connections to spirituality. Fritz Ascher and El Lissitzky reflect this complicated truth in very different but equally compelling ways.

Panel discussion moderated by Rose-Carol Washton Long, Professor Emerita of 19th and 20th Century European Art, CUNY Graduate Center, with speakers Elizabeth Berkowitz, Mellon/ACLS Public Fellow, Rockefeller Archive Center; Matthew Drutt, editor, writer and independent curator; and Ori Z. Soltes, Teaching Professor of Jewish Civilization, Georgetown University.
