Dr. Tom Haakenson Presents at Weisman Art Museum

Dr. Thomas O. Haakenson (Liberal Arts Chair) was invited to speak at the Weisman Art Museum for WAM Chatter in March 2012, offered in conjunction with the exhibition, "Käthe Kollwitz: Making Human."

Focusing on the question of “Is the Body Politic?,” Haakenson and others addressed the increasing artistic use of abstraction to address pressing human concerns in the early twentieth century, focusing specifically on German artist Käthe Kollwitz and her steadfastly commitment to the figure as the supreme subject and pictorial means for a socially committed art.
