Barber Lecture: "Resistance in Pictures: Assia Djebar on Art" by Brigitte Weltman-Aron
The Algerian writer and filmmaker Assia Djebar explores various forms of resistance to oppression and, in particular, women’s responses to colonialism and their participation in the Algerian war of independence. When doing so, she often turns to images, such as the iconic Delacroix’s Women of Algiers in their Apartment, or a Roman mosaic exhibited in a museum in her hometown Cherchell that represents Odysseus and the Sirens. This lecture examines some of the modes and effects of Djebar’s inclusion of art in her discussion of resistance.
