In the eyes of Israel’s worst critics, David turns into Goliath or even worse as the Star of David gets replaced with a swastika. The difference here is that in this collage by Art Spiegelman David remains David and Goliath remains Goliath. Each figure keeps its exact shape and expression. They “merely” exchange size. That’s what makes Spiegelman’s artful critique a subtle one, not crude. Thanks to Mira Sucharov for posting this at the Forward. You can read her remarks here, and see more, including the uncropped “original” piece at the artist’s FB page here. As you’ll see on the comments at FB, fine art does not always provoke excellent conversation.
