NEW BBC DOCUMENTARY
Features Painting by Marcia Annenberg
"Resistance," a painting by New York-based artist Marcia Annenberg, is discussed in a new BBC documentary examining the history, significance and contemporary resonance of Goya's masterpiece, "The Executions of the Third of May, 1814." The documentary, entitled "The Private Life of a Masterpiece III" premiered on BBC2 on January 26th of this year. It runs 50 minutes; its director is Mick Gold.
PAINTING BY MARCIA ANNENBERG SELECTED FOR
THE HOLOCAUST AND OTHER GENOCIDES: HISTORY, REPRESENTATION, ETHICS
“Never Again” became the mantra of the European imagination after the Shoah. And yet, concentration camps emerged again, in Europe, in 1992. Men, women and children were taken by the thousands to the ravine of Babi Yar, outside Kiev, during the Nazi onslaught of 1941 and shot in the back of the head. So, too, unarmed villagers in Bosnia, fifty years later, were taken from their homes and shot in the woods.
The painting "Babi Yar/Bosnia" by New York artist Marcia Annenberg was selected for the cover of "The Holocaust and Other Genocides: History, Representation, Ethics" edited by Helmut Walser Smith (Vanderbilt University Press, June 2002). The book is a collaboration of scholars from many disciplines that systematically tie the teaching of the Holocaust to an analysis of the genocides in Armenia, Bosnia, Kosovo and Rwanda.
Babi Yar/Bosnia is a commentary on the continuity of the methods of extermination preferred by mass murders, and was influenced by the painting Before and After by Andy Warhol. “Warhol’s painting refers to our perception of physical beauty along racial lines, as influenced by advertising,” said Annenberg. “However, during the Holocaust racial characteristics could seal your doom. And racial characteristics in Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, and America have meant certain death.”
Marcia Annenberg’s work has been featured in solo group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States, including the 55 Mercer Street Gallery and the New Century Artists in New York; the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Central Florida in Maitland, the Rockland Center for Holocaust Studies in Spring Valley, New York, the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio; and the Red Chair Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri. Her paintings are currently on view at Ohio State University Hillel in Columbus, Ohio in the group exhibition “Reflections on the Holocaust.” In June, the show will travel to New York where it will be shown at the Manhattan Borough Presidents Office. Ms. Annenberg will also participate in an exhibition at the Puffin Gallery in New York in June.
