Symposium |
The High Line, an innovative promenade created on a disused elevated railway in Manhattan, is widely recognized as among the most iconic urban landmarks of the 21st century. It has stimulated public interest in landscape design while simultaneously re-integrating an industrial relic into the everyday life of New York City. Since its opening in 2009, this unique greenway has exceeded expectations in terms of attracting visitors, investment, and property development to Manhattan's West Side, and is widely celebrated as a monument to community-led activism, adaptive re-use of urban infrastructure, and innovative ecological design. It has also inspired a worldwide proliferation of similar proposals seeking to capitalize on the repurposing of disused urban infrastructure for postindustrial revitalization.

Lecture |
This talk explores the dynamics of authority and evasion in the Soviet Union, where a wide range of citizens practiced the arts of non-compliance and illegal departure — settlers in Siberia, soldiers, and young specialists on assignment. It will focus on escapes from the Gulag and from the “unknown Gulag” of Special Settlements, invoking the use of escapee repertoires in the face of state regimes of confinement. Lecturer Lewis Siegelbaum is the Jack and Margaret Sweet Professor of History at Michigan State University; among his most important publications are Cars for Comrades: The Life of the Soviet Automobile and Stakhanovism and the Politics of Productivity in the USSR, 1935-1941.

A lecture by Federica Pedriali (University of Edinburgh). This presentation uses Paolo Sorrentino’s La grande bellezza (2013) and Rosi’s Sacro Gra (2013) to frame a selective deconstruction of the Eternal City. Paragraphs include Genius of Rome (broadly based on a long view of the city’s primary logistics: place and time), Grand Narratives (focusing on an evolving Roman mythology driven by polarised qualifiers and tags), Individual Trajectories (looking at the default impact made by Rome on travellers from different periods) and Hope of Rome: Resurrection vs Resurgence (tackling the city’s role in and since the Risorgimento and particularly under fascism).

Discussion |
Could the classic films of Truffaut, Godard or, more recently, Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) have existed without the generous forms of support provided to the French film industry? Many countries have been inspired by France’s public policies in the filmmaking industry. Sometimes critiqued as protectionist, these policies, introduced after World War II, allowed France to become the first European hub of film production and exportation, and one of the leading world powers in the industry. How has the French system evolved since the end of World War II? What relationships has it had with the American model? Between the laws of the market and cultural diversity, are the French and American strategies in the digital age as antagonistic as we think? Discussion with Frédérique Bredin, Pierre-Emmanuel Lecerf, Laurent Creton and Jonathan Buchsbaum. Moderated by James Schamus. In French and English, with simultaneous French-English translation.

Talk |
Since the Somali piracy epidemic exploded into global headlines in 2008, there has been a sharp rise in the privatization of maritime security. Thanks in large part to the introduction of armed private security forces to the waters off the Horn of Africa, piracy has been largely brought under control off Somalia, but now new pirate threats menace the waters off West Africa and in the Strait of Malacca. What does the rise of the private navy tell us about the world, and how can it be regulated? As market forces drive the rapid evolution of private security at sea, regulators and policymakers ashore race to catch up. Speaker John-Clark Levin is the coauthor of the book Private Anti-Piracy Navies: How Warships for Hire are Changing Maritime Security, a ground-breaking study of the way the mercenary navy-for-hire has re-emerged in the modern world.

In recent years Guatemalan artistic production has been extremely powerful, with an emergence of both critical and whimsical artistic practices responding to the violence, repression and historical memory of the previous decades in Guatemala, but also its unique sense of contemporaneity, indigeneity and radical urban imagination. Contemporary Guatemalan artists such as Benvenuto Chavajay, Regina José Galindo, Jorge de León and many others are recognized widely not only in the context of Central/Latin America, but receive acclaim on the world stage, while contemporary urban art spaces like NuMu and Proyectos Ultravioleta are notable for their inventive curatorial practices and creative public engagement.

This new series of oil paintings by world-renowned, conceptual artist Shen Shaomin explores artistic originality and the traditional method of viewing art. More than 20 pieces portraying archetypal pop works, such as Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup and other portraitures of cultural figures, are overshadowed by various logos of art handling companies which appear to have been taped on. The title, Handle with Care, commonly found on the wrappings of precious and fragile items, highlights the temporality and instability of artwork.

In 1977, Romare Bearden (1911-1988) created a cycle of 20 collages and watercolors (miniature variations of his collages) based on Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. Rich in symbolism and allegorical content, Bearden’s “Odysseus Series” created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African-American culture. The works conveyed a sense of timelessness and the universality of the human condition, but their brilliance was displayed for only two months in New York City before being scattered to private collections and public art museums.

With Dr. Joseph Chuman. Contemporary humanism as expressed by a small but growing number of organizations bearing the name is historically a relatively recent phenomenon. It evolved in the nineteenth century out of strands of philosophical idealism centered on the European continent and emergent agnosticism which was taking hold in Britain. Humanism was "codified" with the publication of the Humanist Manifesto in 1933, which proclaimed a roster of values and principles that form the nucleus of the modern movement. But humanism, defined more broadly, has had a much deeper historical reach extending to ancient times with representatives in both the West and East. In this sense, humanism is not reducible to a set of principles, but to an orientation to life that appreciates the breadth of human expression, whether in art, literature, religion and other cultural and creative endeavors. It resonates with the human element behind thoughts and deeds expressive of a humanity that is not reducible to deterministic or formulaic understandings of the human condition. Humanism thus understood implicitly rebels against the imperiousness of a mechanistic and overly technological culture. It is this wider humanism that will be explored.

Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art explores the ways contemporary artists use Ebony and Jet as a resource and as inspiration in their practices. Considering Ebony and Jet from a variety of perspectives—as journalistic material and important documenters of black life, as metaphor for African-American culture and as theoretical spaces for black thought and exchange—the exhibition examines the magazines' material and cultural legacy as artists perceive them.

This special iteration of The Artist's Voice brings together exhibiting artists Leslie Hewitt and Hank Willis Thomas to unpack notions of beauty, womanhood and agency in relation to their works on view in Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art. This intimate conversation celebrates and reflects on the 10 years that have passed since Hewitt and Thomas exhibited together at the Museum as part of Frequency (2005–06), and examines how their practices have evolved. They will also explore the role Vince Cullers—founder of the first African-American-owned full-service advertising agency in the U.S.—has played in informing their distinct visual practices, and discuss design relationships, messaging, and the vast terrain that is black representation in the media.

This panel takes up contemporary debates surrounding the legalization of marijuana. They consider the implications of the politics and policies of the “war on drugs;” the incarceration of black men for drug-related crimes and infractions; the medical uses of marijuana; and the social implications of the recreational use of marijuana, particularly in regards to children. They pay particular attention to recent groundbreaking works, such as Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. Our panel will be led by Ethan Nadelman, who is described by Rolling Stone as "the point man" for drug policy reform efforts, and is widely regarded as the outstanding proponent of drug policy reform both in the United States and abroad. He is the author of the Cops Across Borders (1993) and co-author of Policing the Globe (2008). A reception will follow the event.

In 1977, Romare Bearden (1911-1988) created a cycle of 20 collages and watercolors (miniature variations of his collages) based on Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. Rich in symbolism and allegorical content, Bearden’s “Odysseus Series” created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African-American culture. The works conveyed a sense of timelessness and the universality of the human condition, but their brilliance was displayed for only two months in New York City before being scattered to private collections and public art museums.

In late 1989 and early 1990, the dominant idea was that policymakers in Eastern Europe would be learning from the West. The term transition offered an image in which East Europeans were on a road to catching up with Western institutions which had earlier arrived at the right answers for the proper models of the relationship between markets and democracies. Twenty five years later, our goal is to consolidate existing research less about 1989 itself than about the past 25 years of experience with political and economic transformation. To do so, this will focus on how different actors are learning from each other. Who is paying attention to whom? And what new combinations are being cobbled together in this process?

In prisons throughout the U.S., punitive incarceration and religious revitalization are occurring simultaneously. Faith-based programs operate under the logic that religious conversion and redemption will transform prisoners into new human beings. Writer, professor, and Soros Justice Media Fellow Tanya Erzen asks why Christian prison ministries are on the rise in these settings? What are the implications of the state’s promotion of Christianity over other religious traditions? And why have conservative Christians in particular embraced criminal justice reform?

This illustrated lecture explores the evolution of the painted nail. The manicure as we know it has been around for less than a century, but it's become a major presence in the culture of fashion, with its own trends, fads, and fringe aspects. It looks at the myriad ways in which the adorned fingernail has served as an expression of the individual and the times. It traces the origins of the modern manicure as a radical gesture in style and follows it through today's culture of ubiquitous nail salons and edgy experiments in nail art, showing how at every turn the manicure has reflected larger style trends as well as changing ideals of femininity.

The politicized and mass-mediated aspects of European Union (EU) politics have only recently started to receive scholarly attention. In a politicized EU, decision-making procedures are increasingly exposed to public and media attention. This lecture sheds light on the impact of media attention in shaping the public debate regarding the legitimacy of the EU. To what extent do the media act as an amplifier of conflicts over European integration? Do the media constrain or facilitate the political efforts to further integrate Europe?

But what returns is not Roman glory, but Roman abjection: the horror of civil war. Lecturer Barbara Vinken is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the LMU Munich.

About leaving his native country, James Baldwin argues, “One sees it better from a distance…from another place, from another country.” Can displacement (voluntary or otherwise) bring a writer to write more clearly about her “home” or herself? Is the tension between Baldwin and the places about which he writes, the complications between himself and those places, a necessary component to his success? Panelists will discuss the ways in which Baldwin’s view of place informed his work. With Dante Micheaux, Darryl Pinckney and Tiphanie Yanique. Moderated by Tracyann Williams.

A lecture with faculty member David Lee. Architecture and urban design’s adherence to the manipulation of physical structures as their sole means for creating holistic environments renders their practices ineffective as contemporary life no longer exists only in a physical state. New technologies — smart phones, smart glasses, high-speed transports — have given birth to a new virtual world for people to live within. As it is recognized that these technologies offer the potential for new shared democratic environments, it is argued that the current implementation of these technologies has fragmented contemporary life into discrete pockets of activity.

With Curt Collier. Just because some event follows another event, many people make the logical mistake of automatically assuming the first event caused the second. The fallacy sounds easy enough to spot right? But, more often than not, this fallacy appears again and again in people’s perceptions of the world…even in subtle ways. For a little levity, we will be testing your ability to spot the fallacy through a variety of sources from current news to pervasive beliefs in pop culture, and even within some of your own cherished ideals. Come ready to challenge, laugh, and argue as we warm up a cold winter’s day.

The tension between philosophy and literature goes back so far that even Plato described it as "an ancient quarrel." He, of course, intensified the quarrel by proposing that in his utopia the best of the poets would first be praised and then escorted to the nearest border. And since Plato's day there remains a suspicion among philosophers that the literary arts trespass on philosophical territory by getting people to feel philosophical conclusions rather than reason their way to them. But perhaps philosophers, even the most rigorously analytic, can't help but do something like that themselves when it comes to their deepest intuitions about the nature of reality. Speaker Rebecca Newberger Goldstein is a philosopher and novelist, and both an alumna and former professor at Barnard College. She is the author of many acclaimed works of philosophical fiction, including The Mind-Body Problem, Thirty-Six Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, and Plato at the Googleplex, as well as many other works of fiction and non-fiction.

Jewish historical sites exist throughout the Greater Middle East region beyond just Israel, many dating back to the earliest parts of the Torah and biblical writings. Others reflect an époque when the region was a haven welcoming Jews after the Spanish Inquisition. Since the foundation of Israel and the emigration of Jews from many countries throughout the region, many of the sites have been abandoned and left to decay. In his talk, travel writer and professor Michael Luongo takes us to Morocco, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries to look at the physical legacies of these once thriving communities and efforts to restore some of the most important historical Jewish sites and open them to tourism.
