Symposium | Reinventing Privacy


The premise of “notice and consent” is flawed. We need a new paradigm to address privacy of data. How can we provide guarantees of privacy while preserving technological innovation? How can data be accessed and shared by every contributor in a democratic way without being controlled by a small number of players? Data collection, use limitation, accountability and consent are key pillars we will focus on in this workshop convening experts in the fields of computer science, law and policy.

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 | Towards Nazism: On the Invention of Plato's Political Philosophy


Like in Raphael's School of Athens, Plato has been celebrated for centuries as the champion of the contemplative life. Such a description of Plato will be probably striking for most of the contemporary readers of the dialogues, used to a very different Plato, at least from Popper onwards. For many, nowadays, Plato is first of all a political philosopher. The contrast couldn't be sharper. The goal of the paper is to reconstruct the origins of the political interpretation: endorsed by the Nazis, made famous by Popper, it was first developed by some important Hellenists in Germany (such as Wilamowitz and Jaeger), in the first thirty years of the 20th century and quickly became dominant also outside the universities - the most interesting example being the so-called George Kreis, and most notably K. Hildebrandt's attempt to harmonise Plato and Nietzsche. What happens when you reconcile Plato and Nietzsche? For sure this is not a marginal story, for philosophers and not only for them.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: The Boundaries Between High Art and Handicraft


Polly Apfelbaum is best known for her “fallen paintings”: large, colorful, floor-bound works composed of hundreds of petals of brilliantly dyed fabric. She has exhibited steadily since her first one-person exhibition in New York in 1986, exploring the boundaries between high art and handicraft, in particular the varieties of quilting and weaving that modern art dismissed as decorative, as craft, or as women’s work. Her most recent works, woven rugs and printed wallpapers, move color and pattern across the floor and onto the wall. They evoke both a history of modern color painting and mid-century interior design, and the handmade work of older craft traditions.

Lecture | The Opposite of Elegance. Walter Benjamin's Fashion Theory and the Practice and Criticism of 1930s Paris Couture


Lecturer Philipp Ekardt states: "It is a little known fact that German-Jewish philosopher Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) must have attended fashion shows during his Parisian exile, and that Benjamin's most important contribution on the question of fashion - a convolute of fragments dedicated to the subject in his unfinished 'Arcades Project' (1928-1940) - is actually framed and interlaced by a number of implicit and explicit connections to the fashion of Benjamin's time, namely, the practice and criticism of 1930s Paris couture."
