dc.description.abstract In 2002 the Jewish Museum in New York exhibited Mirroring Evil, in which contemporary artists represented the Holocaust. Holocaust survivors demonstrated against the exhibition, holding placards in the street outside. An 81 year old survivor of Buchenwald, Isaac Leo Kram, carried a sign that read: `I was there. I testify: Genocide is not art!? (Kershaw 2002). A sign at the entrance of the museum warned visitors that some might be upset by the exhibition. The New York press, typically supportive of the city?s art institutions when attacked by critics, repeatedly questioned the Museum?s judgment in holding the exhibition. At the heart of the controversy was grave concern that some of the artworks were testing the limits of how the Holocaust could be represented and remembered. en_US
