Lecture | Post-Soviet Conflicts: Doing Better Than We Thought? (online)


The Eastern Partnership has been the flagship project of the EU since 2009. Often, and especially since 2013, this has led to disagreement and even hostility between the Kremlin and the EU. The EU’s outreach through Association Agreements and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreements, while intended as only beneficial, created seemingly exclusive choices for these countries between the EU and Moscow’s Eurasian Union. Ukraine’s Yanukovych government’s rejection of the association agreement and the ensuring Maidan protests of 2013-14 led to regime change, Russian annexation of Crimea, and continuing conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The focus of speaker Nina Lutterjohann’s research offers a comparative perspective to better understand the origins, dynamics, and scenarios of these conflicts. This is shown in two ways.

Opening Reception | My I: A Viewer's Sensory Experiences


The gallery's first exhibition with Chando Ao, a Chinese multimedia artist who splits his time between New York and Shanghai. The exhibition consists of a series of artworks that function as tools for the viewer’s sensory experiences. Chando Ao’s works, where technology and human experience intersect, provide a variety of tools to confuse, inspire, induce, stimulate, and disturb the audience; to let them generate new feelings about their “I”; to connect irrelevant things beyond intellectual experience; to make the obvious strange and, perhaps, to make the strange obvious. Then, “I” becomes vivid. The objects in the show – two digital drawings, two chairs, two dogs, two vessels, and three screen mirrors – are all interactive, self-reflective instruments to arrive at heightened awareness of one’s body, actions and emotions.

Leibovitz, one of the most influential photographers of our time, marks the publication of her book.

In conversation with her longtime editor at Phaidon, Deb Aaronson, Leibovitz will share stories from her ambitious fashion shoots—including looks by designers such Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Rei Kawakubo—alongside tales of her encounters with a wide and diverse range of icons: from fashion designers such as Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld to Kate Moss, Serena Williams, politicians Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, and cultural figures—Queen Elizabeth II, Lady Gaga, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie—to name a few.
