Henry J. Leir Curator Susan Braunstein speaks about the Judaica objects included in Repetition and Difference, which gathers seemingly identical works from the Museum’s collection to examine how differences and derivations can reveal significant meanings about artistic production, social issues, and prevailing political conditions.
The Lines of Distinction Lecture has been endowed by Barbara and Benjamin Zucker in memory of Lotty and Charles Zucker and by William W. Hallo, the late Susanne Hallo Kalem, and the late Ruth Hallo Landman, in memory of Dr. Gertrude Hallo.
