THE ART OF HATRED: Images of Intolerance

From ancient and medieval times to the present use of the internet, grotesque and cruel visual representations of Jewish people and others have stoked the flames of intolerance.

This exhibit explores the issues of antisemitism, discrimination, and stereotypes. It focuses on the effective use of graphics and imagery over the centuries to foster bigotry and social division. Its goal is to show the origins and mutation of these hateful images and to sensitize viewers to the continued use of propaganda.

Many of the 200 images, artifacts and documents used in the exhibit are from private collections, the Florida Regional Office of the Anti-Defamation League and from several European churches and museums. Its range is extensive and its content powerful, current and relevant to all groups. The exhibit can easily be expanded to customize its content to your community.
