Vedem, WWII, Holocaust, Workshop, Students, Creative Activism, Creativity, Docent Tour
Come visit the the Vedem Exhibit at the Czech Center Museum.
On view: September 12th, 2017 to November 30th, 2017
Vedem’s magazine’s lessons of artistic activism will inspire today’s teens! It’s a chance to use creative means to explore their identity while driving change in their own communities.
Vedem Underground : The Secret Boys Magazine deconstructs and reinterprets the literary work of a secret society of Jewish boys, who created the longest-running underground magazine in a Nazi camp. Using a combination of pop-art graphics, drawings and paintings, and the prose and poetry of teenage prisoners in the Terezin Ghetto, the exhibit breaks down the 83 weekly issues totaling the 800 pages of Vedem (“In The Lead” in Czech”), then reconstructs them in the form of a contemporary magazine.
Through the exhibit, Vedem, which was produced from 1942-44, is recreated as the original ‘zine (hand made magazine), complete with “Masthead,” “Mission,” “Newsroom,” “Printing Press” and “Circulation” sections as well as panels dedicated to subject matter such as “Columns,” “Features,” “Humor” and “News and Editorial” panels.
Vedem Underground enlarges the intimate scale of the original publication while mixing and matching works of art with poetry and prose to create a collage in which Vedem is reinterpreted as a work of artistic activism that remains as relevant today as it did more than 70 years ago.
The Vedem Underground multimedia project examines the historic, cultural and artistic legacy of Vedem, a teen-authored magazine that was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by young Nazi concentration camp prisoners.
Vedem Underground teaches an invaluable lesson that transcends religion, age and eras to secondary-school and college students. Students are able to see how young activists inside the Terezin ghetto fearlessly fought anti-Semitism using their creative expression.
FREE WORKSHOPS & CLASSES AVAILABLE!
Students participate in journalism workshop that concludes with student creations of hand-made magazines (‘zines).
The workshop is designed to teach middle- through college students both the historic context of Vedem and the art of creating a ‘zine, or hand- made magazine, as a symbol of creative expression, and a way to explore one’s identity through socially-engaged creativity.
They will conclude the course showcasing their work for the community with a ‘zine pop-up exhibit, where they will share ideas and trade their ‘zines.
