Film | To Sir, With Love (1967) with Sidney Poitier


Engineer Mark Thackeray arrives to teach a totally undisciplined class of white high school students at an East End school. Still hoping for a good engineering job, he's hopeful that he won't be there long. He starts implementing his own brand of classroom discipline: forcing the pupils to treat each other with respect. Inevitably he begins getting involved in the students' personal lives, and must avoid the advances of an amorous student while winning over the class tough. What will he decide when the engineering job comes through? Director: James Clavell Cast: Sidney Poitier, Judy Geeson, Christian Roberts, Suzy Kendall, Faith Brook Sidney Poitier was a Bahamian and American actor, film director, and diplomat. In 1964, he was the first black actor and first Bahamian to win the Academy Award for Best Actor. He received two competitive Golden Globe Awards and a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album. Poitier was one of the last major stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema.

Lecture | The Smartness Mandate: Neo-liberalism, AI, & Politics


This talk interrogates the history of models of decision-making and agency in machine learning, neo-liberal economic thought, and finance in order to understand how reactionary politics , civil rights, and technology are being reformulated in our present. While the relationship between the Right, post-truth, suggestion algorithms, and social media has long been documented, rarely there has been extensive investigation of how ideas of choice and freedom become recast in a manner amenable to machine automation, financialization, and to particular brands of post-1970s alt-right discourses. An analysis of this history demonstrates a new logic within algorithmic and artificial intelligent rationalities that intersects with, but is also not merely a repetition of, earlier histories of reason, eugenics, sexism, and racism. This situation provokes serious challenges to political action, but also to our theorization of democracy, collectivity, and diversity. Speaker Orit Halpern is Full Professor and Chair of Digital Cultures at Technische Universität Dresden.

Conference | No End of History: Crooked Circle of Democracy and Authoritarianism


On April 25th 1974, after years of a brutal decolonization war, a group of left-wing officials of the Portuguese Army started a rebellion that caused the downfall of the Portuguese colonial and authoritarian regime. The Carnation revolution, as this rebellion is known today, inaugurated what has been described as the third democratization wave. This was followed by the collapse of military juntas, the end of authoritarian governments, and the fall of communist and apartheid regimes across Southern and Eastern Europe, Latin America, East Asia, and Southern Africa. This third wave, between 1974 and 2000, further cemented the idea of liberal democracies and multiculturalism as a predetermined destination for all modern societies. However, the last 25 years of resurgence of populist leaders, far right movements, ethno-nationalist parties, and anti-minority violence, challenged the wishful thinking of those that considered the democratizing effects of the wave permanent.  The conference will engage with the legacies of the third democratization wave and the new authoritarian turn across the globe.

Film | Merchant of Four Seasons (1972): German drama directed by Rainer Fassbinder


Hans is a lifelong member of the middle-class. His family, especially his wife, Irmgard, derides him for his lack of ambition and his chosen profession: running a fruit stand. Eventually, the constant ridicule drives him to alcoholism, and his bout with the bottle lands him in the hospital. While recovering, he hires extra help and watches his business boom. However, his success doesn't alleviate his pain, and his anger and drinking slowly destroy him. Director: Rainer Werner Fassbinder Cast: Hans Hirschmuller, Irm Hermann, Hanna Schygulla, Klaus Lowitsch Rainer Werner Fassbinder was a German filmmaker, actor, and dramatist. He is widely regarded as one of the major figures and catalysts of the New German Cinema movement. Versatile and prolific, his over 40 films span a variety of genres, most frequently blending elements of Hollywood melodrama with social criticism and avant-garde techniques. His films, according to him, explored "the exploitability of feelings." His work was deeply rooted in post-war German culture: the aftermath of Nazism, the German economic miracle, and the terror of the Red Army Faction. He worked with a company of actors and technicians who frequently appeared in his projects.

Discussion | Syncretism and Sustainability


Sites of Impermanence artists Sanford Biggers, Willie Cole, and Mel Kendrick will participate in a moderated discussion about formal innovation through the use and reuse of materials, hybridity, and the melding of different traditions of making. The discussion is presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Rail, and moderated by William Corwin. In ancient Greek, the term synkrētismos meant a “union of communities,” specifically to oppose a common enemy. Only in the seventeenth century was the word Anglicized to mean “the union of different religious beliefs.” This term now filled an emerging descriptive need for a process of cultural diffusion and hybridity that emerged through colonization. The artists will discuss how syncretism, with its fraught history, relates to their sculptural practices, and how looking back to move forward informs their work.

Discussion | Artist Talk: Shorter Than This Day


This exchange between artist Sarah Sze and writer Teju Cole will celebrate Sze’s ambitious site-specific Public Art Fund sculpture Shorter Than The Day, now permanently on view at LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal B. Commissioned in 2020 with LaGuardia Gateway Partners, Sze’s work evokes the passage of time through an intricate constellation of photographs. Hundreds of images form a mirage-like sphere that appears to float in midair. Each photograph is a snapshot of the sky above New York City taken over the course of one day. In her conversation, Sze will discuss the process behind this project and, alongside Cole, explore how their artistic practices capture non-linear experiences of time and the urban environment.

Conference | Digital Platform Economies – Value from Data?


A host of studies demonstrate the perils of digital platforms and automated systems: algorithmic bias, algorithmic harm, data privacy, and deep fakes. What is less clear are the myriad ways that digital platforms structure economic/financial relations and transactions in the first place. Understanding processes of data valuation is a crucial aspect of broader inquiries into the promises and perils of digital platforms. This 2-day conference showcases programmatic research on data valuation. Each session considers the question: How do platforms produce value and monetize those value forms? The sessions are designed to stimulate discussion about value forms and valuation processes through particular lenses: digital assets, Web3 tokenization, digital twins, automated optimization, and generative AI. The discussions will consider the extent to which standard concepts (rent, commodity, property, accumulation) are relevant to these cases and examine continuities and discontinuities across different modes of digital value production.

Gung Thang Rinpoche was one of the most influential Tibetan scholars of the last century, and Dr. Gyal Lo had a front row view of how Rinpoche survived the tumultuous events of the Cultural Revolution and played a pivotal role in reviving Tibetan language and culture in the 1980s.

Book Discussion | The End of Family Court: How Abolishing the Court Brings Justice to Children and Families


At the turn of the twentieth century, American social reformers created the first juvenile court. They imagined a therapeutic court where informality, specially trained public servants, and a kindly, all-knowing judge would assist children and families. But the dream of a benevolent means of judicial problem-solving was never realized. A century later, children and families continue to be failed by this deeply flawed court. The End of Family Court rejects the foundational premise that family court can do good when intervening in family life and challenges its endless reinvention to survive. Jane M. Spinak illustrates how the procedures and policies of modern family court are deeply entwined in a heritage of racism, a profound disdain for poverty, and assimilationist norms intent on fixing children and families who are different. And the court’s interventionist goals remain steeped in an approach to equity and well-being that demands individual rather than collective responsibility for the security and welfare of families.

Dance Performance | Mudpit: A Devised Dance-Theatre Piece


Mudpit is the peat bog from which we emerged, into which we will return. Decomposing, regenerating, molting - what happens in the space between the fluorescent buzz of our hypermodern world and the ancient wisdom of bugs, blood, fire, and seeds? Everything we make is part of nature, whether we like it or not. Directed & Choreographed by Celia Krefter Dramaturgy by Kate Purdum Production Design by Maya T. Weed, Celia Krefter & Kate Purdum Performed by: Zo? Benavidez Ava Blum Bonnie Cai Thaleia Dasberg Sydney Gerlach
