Cover for Kaplan: Unwanted Beauty. Click for larger imageWriting for The Jewish Press, Menachem Wecker reviews Brett Ashley Kaplan’s Unwanted Beauty: Aesthetic Pleasure in Holocaust Representation in conjunction with Joyce Ellen Weinstein’s art exhibition opening at the Florida Holocaust Museum.

“Many have wondered whether it is appropriate for artists — and particularly artists who did not witness the concentration camps — to represent the Holocaust. . . . Kaplan’s book does not mention Washington, DC-based artist Joyce Ellen Weinstein, but it still proves an invaluable model for contextualizing and analyzing Weinstein’s work.”
