Activity 3 - Way of Life in the Ghettos and Camps – Artistic Creation

(A) Choose several works of art from different places and by different artists. Write down the main differences between the works you have chosen. These could be in subject matter, style, materials or techniques ...

(B) Some of these differences could be explained by the different styles or concerns of the artists. But some might be due to the conditions under which the works were produced. Read through the biographies of Lurie, Olomucki, Boden and Awret. Note down the things that affected their artistic work, such as the attitudes of officials and other inmates or the availability of materials.

(C) Choose two different places and write about the ways in which the art works reflect different attitudes towards artists creation. Give specific examples.
