Woman in Gold tells the true story of Maria Altman, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, who rights to regain a painting that belonged to her aunt – a portrait of her aunt, painted by Gustav Klimt. The 2015 film features excellent performances by Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.
Our presenter will be Dr. Caroline Kita, Associate Professor of Germanic Studies and Comparative Literature at Washington University. Her research interests include German and Austrian literature and culture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, German-Jewish Studies, music and musical aesthetics, theater and radio. Her book, Jewish Difference and the Arts: Composing Compassion in Music and Biblical Drama (Indiana University Press 2019), examines discourses of inclusion and otherness in musical and dramatic works by Jewish artists in Vienna around 1900.
