Karen Gutfreund, Curator at Karen Gutfreund Art and Gutfreund Cornett Art sent us this Political call for art from Charles Krause, with whom she is working with and consulting. “Very big potential for this exhibition. Charles was a foreign correspondent, ” Karen wrote to us.
Charles Krause’s interest in the art of protest, propaganda and political change developed over the course of his career as a foreign correspondent for The Washington Post, CBS News and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. On assignment in Latin America, Central Europe, Russia, Asia and the Middle East, he witnessed many of the wars and revolutions of his time. His reporting earned him an Emmy for his reports from Israel and the Middle Est (1997), the Latin American Studies Association Media Award for his Central America coverage (1987) and the Overseas Press Club’s Hal Boyle Award for his reporting from Jonestown, where he was shot and wounded while on assignment for The Washington Post (1978).
