The Artist as a Transgressive Witness to History
Dr Brad Evans, Professor of Political Violence & Aesthetics at the University of Bath, joined the HENI Art Club for a presentation and discussion, considering the importance of art in terms of providing a transgressive witnessing to history. Evans addressed some of the most influential names from art history, who have used their work as a means to explore and document significant events. The artists discussed include Goya and his infamous Disasters of War series, and Jake & Dinos Chapman’s later ‘rectification’ of these works, Francis Bacon, and Mark Rothko.
