W/ar/t Panel Discussion with U.S. Military Veterans Turned Artists
Conceptual artist Joseph Beuys (12 May 1921 – 23 January 1986) and writer Wolfgang Borchert (20 May 1921 – 20 November 1947) both suffered severe trauma during World War II and processed their experiences by creating art. After a year of collectively experiencing COVID-19 and the toll it has taken on our mental health, the Goethe-Zentrum wishes to take the opportunity to ask if and how art can heal PTSD, trauma, and wounds of the mind in the broadest sense.
The virtual event is free to attend, but participants must register in advance to receive the Zoom Meeting ID and password. Full list of panelists available on our website.
