The Golem of Church Street – The Book
About these images
Here is a series of woodcuts and etchings with accompanying text. My point is not that the left leaning political view is anti-Semitic but that there are fundamentalists on the far left just like on the right whose ideals seem to twist there perception into an evil and history distorting narrative.
This Book was published in 2008 after my eyes were opened to the Antisemitism that exists in my own liberal/progressive community. I see artists compare Israel to Nazis. They claim that the Israeli Defense Force kills children for sport. They blame American Jews for starting wars to benefit Israel at the disservice of America. And much more. I try to show these lies as attempted manipulation by bigots to serve their larger goals. Here again I hope you order a copy of the book.
The Golem of Church Street
An Artists Reflection on the New Antisemitism by David Sokol
In words and images, David Sokol reflects upon social, political, and cultural phenomena that objectify the new anti -semitism. From Far four the Martyr Mouse killed by the Evil Jew to Jimmy Carter’s relationship with Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al- Nahyan, Sokol uses satire and caricature, humor and sadness and irony to nudge the reader into thinking about these complex issues.
