Social Justice Art Education

Join us in a series of participatory curricular encounters with tapestries and sculpture by Linda Stein: Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females (H2F2), Fluidity of Gender, and Displacement. This site is built by a team of art curriculum scholars and practitioners with expertise in kindergarten through higher education teaching, museum education, information communication technologies, and social justice education.

    • The extermination of the Other. Who is the Other?
    • Holocaust is personal discovery to me.
    • Death, torture and racism.
    • Suspension of the law. The suspension of life.
    • That one can kill or sacrifice anyone they want.
    • When one has no rights to one’s own body.
    • Void of compassion without a system of laws.
    • Destruction on a group of people.

    • Anyone who has the capacity to bring us to voice.
    • Tenacious, never gives up.
    • One who does extraordinary acts of social justice.
    • The ability to extend oneself to a stranger without looking for compensation in return.
    • Taking actions toward injustice.

    • Aware, strong, tenacious strength. We draw strength from the moments when we are the most challenged.
    • Unflinching intentionality.
    • The ability to resist the status quo.
    • The person that has principles. You have fear but you have an intensity to do something, even though you might feel fear.

    • The part of myself that I understand to be my female is my consciousness. The part of me that is beautiful.
    • The fluidity of the term and all the baggage that comes with it.
    • Origins
    • The capacity to see or understand the many perspectives there are.
    • Female is an adjective that is often used negatively but it is in the reclaiming of that word to be something positive that is important.
