The Art of Violence

Violence and human suffering, as represented in art and film, are the focus of an investigation of the power of visual images and the moral implications of such representations. Class members examine “Guernica,” Pablo Picasso’s massive mural, read David Carr’s article, “Stalking Oscar, With Carnage and Mayhem,” and examine other artistic responses to violence. Individuals then create their own evocative work of art in response to a news article on violence or disasters.
