Iconoclasm: Art We've Lost to Extremism

The intentional destruction of images is often a product of extreme ideology.  In this talk, we’ll mourn the loss of our collective human cultural patrimony by visiting with the ghosts of art and architecture from such disparate contexts as the Byzantine Empire, the Protestant Reformation, the French Revolution, the Cultural Revolution in China, and the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Image: The Colossal Buddha of Bamyan, Afghanistan, 6th century AD, before and after its destruction in 2001.
