Gathered Lightpoints: A reconstruction of the Lives, Work and Journeys of Alice Berger Hammerschlag and Helen Lewis

21st February – 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

£4.00 – £6.50


Explore the artistic legacy and enduring friendship of Alice Berger Hammerschlag, a visual artist who escaped from the Nazi regime, and Helen Lewis, a distinguished dancer, choreographer, and Holocaust survivor—two influential female modern artists who found a new home in Belfast.

The two remarkable women crossed paths in pre-Troubles Belfast, where their friendship began. In this talk, Pamela Linden Aveyard, historian of migration and Irish/British Jewry, will explore their lives, work, and journeys as well as their involvement at the heart of Northern Ireland’s artistic life.
