Description
View across Kresge Auditorium in the Visual Arts Center on January 26, 2017 during a roundtable discussion entitled "Iconoclasm and the Power of Images," presented in conjunction with the exhibition "The Temptation of St. Anthony," which was shown in the Markell Gallery from December 06, 2016 through March 19, 2017. Bowdoin faculty members Mereym Belkaid (Romance languages), Barbara Elias Klenner (government), James Higginbotham (classics), Robert Morrison (religion; shown here), and Stephen Perkinson (art history) participated in a discussion moderated by Joachim Homann, curator of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. The struggle to define and control images has erupted throughout history and across almost all cultural and religious boundaries. The contemporary vandalism of works of art by religious fanatics requires us to examine anew iconoclasm's motivations as well as the powers both destructive and creative that it can unleash.
