Jews in a Box: Art or Social Crime?
While watching the news one morning, I came across this piece. It provides an explanation of the exhibit, as well as some commentary from one of the participants. They explain that the purpose is to educate the German population about the Jewish community, as many German citizens have never met a Jew. As a Jewish individual, I was not sure whether to be offended, or appreciate what they declare to be an attempt at using performance art to spread awareness of the Jewish community. I would consider this to be a form of performance art, however, would you agree that there is a criminal aspect in that it could be interpreted as socially offensive?
