20th Century Illuminations

Amy Fagin is a U.S. based visual artist specializing in the traditional art form of manuscript illumination.  Her body of work represents a meta-modernist approach to the materials, techniques and theoretical principals used in manuscript illumination for contemporary consideration.  She is author of Beyond Genocide; an emerging series of illuminations narrating a visual perspective on global incidents of genocide and mass violence.   Ms. Fagin is also an independent scholar in genocide studies and conducts research / seminars, lectures, workshops and advisory work on global initiatives of memory and memorialization through individual and collective arts expression and the museum experience.  She has contributed expertise in international consultative events such as the African Union Human Rights Memorial Project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the 5th International Symposium on Genocide and the Pursuit of Justice in Dhaka, Bangladesh.  Ms. Fagin served on the advisory board of the International Association of Genocide Scholars and regularly publishes editorials, reviews and essays on genocide, art and 21st century expression and education.
