Free Student Workshop & Docent Tour about "Vedem - The Secret Magazine of the Terezin Ghetto

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.

NARS is now accepting applications for the International Residency Program from international and US based artists. The NARS residency supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies, creating a space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time. 

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or semi-private studio spaces (280-325 sq ft) in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Artists meet with 4-6 studio visitors each month, gaining invaluable feedback and expanding their network of artists and professionals in NY and internationally. Residents are provided with administrative, curatorial, and professional support to explore and expand the scope of their artistic practice through research, dialogue, and the production of new projects.

Public presentation opportunities include a curated exhibition in the NARS gallery, bi-annual Open Studios, and theEntree/Encore program, through which artists share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. The NARS Gallery hosts exhibitions year-round.


Residency artists benefit from a community driven program and ongoing dialogue with fellow residency artists through weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together. At NARS, residents also have the advantage of working alongside 60 emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. The program and facilities are designed to form a community, foster the expansion and exchange of artistic and cultural practices, and provide artists with exposure to New York and its art scene.
