Visual Mythology

By Helene Aylon

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2002

Expounding upon Deuteronomy 29, the author describes four art installations created from a feminist perspective. Approaching Jewish theology and myth as a visual artist, the installations express the author's assertion that what was "revealed" to Moses was interpreted through his patriarchal, militaristic, homophobic and misogynistic worldview.
