October 25, 2004, 12:00 noon - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Hudson Distinguished Fellow Robert Bork will introduce Roger Kimball to discuss his latest book, Rape of the Masters: How Political Correctness Sabotages Art (Encounter Books, July 2004).
In The Rape of the Masters, noted art critic Roger Kimball shows how academic art history is increasingly held hostage to radical cultural politics—feminism, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, the whole armory of academic antihumanism. He describes how eight famous works of art have been made over to fit a radical ideological fantasy. Kimball then performs a series of intellectual rescue operations, explaining how these great works should be understood through a series of illuminating readings in which art, not politics, guides the discussion.
A buffet lunch will be provided and copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.Hudson Institute, 1015 18th Street, NW, Suite 300 To RSVP for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-223-7770.
