In the face of increasing artistic use of abstraction to address pressing human concerns in the early twentieth century, German artist Käthe Kollwitz steadfastly maintained her commitment to the figure as the supreme subject and pictorial means for a socially committed art. In times of change and political upheaval, the perceived importance and critical problem of representing the human body in art has taken on heated political dimensions. This WAM Chatter, offered in conjunction with the exhibition Käthe Kollwitz: Making Human, brings together varied thinkers on the body in its historical, philosophical, and artistic contexts to offer thought-provoking responses to the wide-ranging debate on the politics of the body.
