Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Lecture | Security and the Political Geographies of Gender Violence


Over the last couple of decades, violence against women and gender-based violence have emerged as powerful master categories in agendas of international governance and international law, increasingly folded into practices of state sovereignty and global security. What were once marginalized feminist concerns now sit firmly at the nexus of powerful global networks of institutions and practices that have recast development and humanitarianism in line with post 9/11 global security regimes. This lecture will outline questions we should be asking about the way this visionary feminist cause is playing out in global and local systems of power. Based on a collaborative research project with feminist scholars working in the Middle East and South Asia, Lila Abu-Lughod will outline some of the political and institutional circuits that gender violence traverses, consolidates, and animates, paying special attention to “the Muslim question” so central to these operations.

Discussion | Southern Crossings: Composition and Collaboration


A meeting of minds? A missed encounter? In 1836, as the abolition of slavery came into effect, the famed astronomer, John Herschel and his wife, Margaret returned to England from Cape Town where, two years earlier, they had entertained Charles Darwin. Southern Crossings restages the failed dinner in the dream-image of what might have been. The chamber opera, with music by Zaid Jabri and a libretto by Yvette Christiansë and Rosalind Morris, comprises a layered set of conversations about time—of evolution, eternity and freedom; and revolution—of ideas and nations—between Darwin and the Herschels, and their indentured servants, January and Leah. A conversation with composer Zaid Jabri, and librettists, Yvette Christiansë and Rosalind Morris

Sisterhood and After is the first book-length history of the 'second wave' of the UK Women's Liberation Movement from the 1970s onwards. It is powered by uniquely in- depth oral histories, and in this way, illustrates the important connection between oral history practice and feminism in the British context. Margaretta Jolly's book explores key debates and trends in theoretical work, and uses individual and collective memories to cast new light on prominent and less well-known women activists, on iconic women's movement actions and campaigns and on feminist critiques of gender and power.

Discussion | Regeneration: What It Means in Cultural and Political Terms


The Kitchen L.A.B. (Language, Art, Bodies) is a year-long series that brings together artists and writers across disciplines to unpack how the meaning of artistic and cultural terms may shift—and become more resonant or ambiguous—over time. This year, the series considers the term “regeneration” as it pertains to creating something new; as it relates to recycling or re-purposing historic issues or material; and, within the broader cultural and political landscape, as it intersects with the historical question of whether to bring about change through revolution or reform. The event features Andrea Geyer, Sarah Schulman and James Allister Sprang.

Classical Music | Father, My Father: An Audiovisual Premiere


Music of the Americas will present Talea Ensemble in the premiere of NYC-based Canadian composer David Adamcyk's audiovisual piece Father, My Father. Father, My Father is an evening-length concert music reflection on how the #MeToo movement has impacted him as a father. It features a selection of poems, texts, and musical quotations, amongst which are interspersed interviews with individuals of different ages on the subjects of parenthood, gender, relationships, and power. An array of loudspeakers play back these materials and immerse the audience in an audio-collage that alternates with original music, performed by five instrumentalists from Talea Ensemble and vocalist/collaborator Lucy Dhegrae. The result is a tightly woven musical experience that considers the changing roles, attitudes, and interpersonal dynamics of gender in society and family contexts, and contemplates how parenthood, among many other avenues, can affect positive change in the future.

It's 1979, Mardi Gras has been officially cancelled, yet the community is still celebrating. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful?

Talk | The Jewishness of Key Intellectuals and Cultural Figures of Our Times


Professor Irwin Wall will be looking at the "Jewishness" of Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and Franz Kafka. All four were born ethnically Jewish and culturally German.

Lecture | Urban Algorythms: The City as a Body


Human bodies often render their internal operations audible, and for centuries healers have used auscultation — the practice of listening to the body, typically aided by gadgets and machines — to assess the body's health and diagnose ailments. Cities, likewise, have lent themselves to sonic analysis, and they’ve been likened to both bodies and machines. This talk examines how methods of urban listening, through human and machinic ears, have “sounded out” the city as an organic or machinic body — and how new artificially intelligent ears are “scoring" the city in accordance with their own computational logic.  Speaker Shannon Mattern is a Professor at The New School for Social Research.
