Throughout history, artists have created powerful artworks in response to war and violence, with Goya’s Disasters of War and Picasso’s Guernica, among the best-known examples.

In a talk suggested by Memorial Day, Wexner Center educator Amanda Potter discusses Jane Hammond’s Fallen in the context of this tradition, including how Fallen functions as an anti-monument.
