Throughout history, visual artists have documented every feature of social misconduct and injustice. In the 20th century, artists have used their talents to provide incisive commentary about the Armenian Genocide, the Nazi Holocaust, and racism against Africans and African Americans. This presentation will feature dramatic examples from this visual tradition. It will show why the visual arts have been dramatically effective in raising historical consciousness about human rights and in reminding viewers about the power of art as a tool of moral consciousness and social resistance.
