Growing Up Absurd:Before there was Art Spiegelman or Marjane Satrapi, there was Charlotte Salomon, the Berlin-born artist who created the genre-bending “Life? or Theatre?” The work, created in France between 1940-1942, blends not only life and theater but graphic novel and operetta; comedy and tragedy; and text, image and song in a stunning, innovative, autobiographical masterpiece that is necessarily colored by her fate. Don’t miss it at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.Collection Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam. Copyright Charlotte Salomon Foundation
