Workshop “Antijüdische Polemik im Mittelalter”, 7.-8. April in Zurich (German)

Organised by the Arbeitsgruppe Mittelalter im „Netzwerk Jüdisches Kulturerbe in cooperation with “Schauplatz Brunngasse” Zurich, led by Simon Paulus, Maria Stürzebecher and Dölf Wild.

After a delay due to the pandemic, the Arbeitsgruppe Mittelalter im „Netzwerk Jüdisches Kulturerbe invites you to its next workshop in Zurich on 7/8 April 2022. The occasion is a concrete anti-Jewish incident by right-wing extremists on an online event of “Schauplatz-Brunngasse” in Zurich, which happened on 17 January 2021. In its crudeness, this action is very reminiscent of the tumid anti-Jewish late-medieval actionism that expressed itself in a wide variety of media and forms of action – from pictorial representation to verbal or written polemics to structural phenomena. The workshop will focus on these forms of expression of anti-Jewish polemics in their range and in their mutual relationships.
