Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism

Presenter: Jacob Bender

Islamophobia and anti-Semitism have much in common. Both refer to irrational fears and both are deeply embedded into Western culture. Muslims and Jews share the ignoble role of being singled out historically by the West as the archetypal “others.”

Hated for centuries, fantasies of Jewish and Muslim barbarity and evil still exist. This illustrated workshop looks at the history and current state of both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia with over 100 projected images.
