Representations of the Other in Art, lecture by Lydia Bauman

At a time when so many problems afflicting our world are the result of our distrust and fear of strangers, we take a timely look at the representations of the Other in art history.

The Bible, History and Classical Mythology all abound in stories of adversity brought about by mistrust, mistaken identities and misunderstood intentions of strangers.

Stories of angels, heretics, gods and foreigners – from tragic to humorous – make us consider frankly the problems of prejudice, racism, small mindedness and folly besetting humankind.

Lydia Bauman is an artist, whose work can be found in collections both corporate and private. She is also an art historian who runs courses and art tours at the National Gallery in London and elsewhere.
