BONUS - Picasso's Guernica: Revolutionary Art Class Session
/

What is the lasting legacy of anti-war depictions? Is there revolutionary potential? OK does a presentation for the Constructing the Real class on Revolutionary Art. Picasso’s Guernica connects the brutal massacre from the Spanish Civil War to My Lai in Vietnam and torture in Iraq. Taking the commission from the Spanish republicans also changed the previously apolitical Picasso into a communist (didn’t help with the misogyny tho.)
