Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Author Reading | Marci Shore discusses her book The Ukrainian Night: An Intimate History of Revolution


What is worth dying for? While the world watched the uprising on the Maidan as an episode in geopolitics, those in Ukraine during the extraordinary winter of 2013–14 lived the revolution as an existential transformation: the blurring of night and day, the loss of a sense of time, the sudden disappearance of fear, the imperative to make choices. In this lyrical and intimate book, Marci Shore evokes the human face of the Ukrainian Revolution.

Author Reading | Lior Lehrs discusses his book The Peacenik and the Spook as the Diplomatic Avant-Garde


Situations in which no official diplomatic relations or recognition exist between belligerent parties, especially conflicts between a state and a non-state actor, pose major challenges to modern diplomacy. They suggest a need for actors who can serve as a diplomatic avant-garde. This book identifies a diplomatic pattern in which breakthroughs occur through cooperative work between two types of actors: unofficial citizen diplomats and key figures in intelligence bodies.

Lecture | Warsaw's Mounting Obsession with Its Stalinist Skyscraper


What kinds of urban forms and architectural aesthetic did 'actually-existing' Soviet socialism produce, which other types of political system could not have? How were these forms and aesthetics, styles and shapes linked to types of rhetoric, ways of speaking, economic logics, modes of everyday behaviour, which were also unique to the socialist world? Which of these styles, shapes, moods and modalities have survived the collapse of the socialist regimes in 1989-1991; and how do they continue to reproduce themselves and mutate into new norms and forms of existence - new types of normality - in the 'wild capitalist' East European cities of today and tomorrow? This talk will delve into the progressive potentials and reactionary pitfalls of still-, zombie- and mutant-socialism, with particular (but not exclusive) reference to Warsaw's Stalin-era skyscraper, the Palace of Culture and Science. Three decades following the collapse of its guarantor regime, the Palace continues to loom, with increasing intensity, over the social, psychopathological, symbolic and aesthetic lives of its host city. Speaker: Michał Murawski, University of London.

Lecture | The History of New York's Colored Orphan Asylum


Presented by Dr. William Seraile, Professor Emeritus at Lehman College. Seraile taught African American history for 36 years and is the author of several books including Angels of Mercy: White Women and the History of New York's Colored Orphan Asylum. Founded by a group of affluent white women in 1836, the Asylum sheltered and educated thousands of African-American children. After its original building was destroyed by a white mob in the 1863 Draft Riots, a new one was built at 143rd street and Amsterdam Avenue. Seraile will talk about how the organization's history sheds light on the changing conditions of African Americans in NY from the abolition of slavery in 1827 through the mid 20th century.

Discussion | Breaking Fourth Walls Since 1940 (If Not Earlier) On Comics Innovator Will Eisner


Originating in theater, the concept of the “fourth wall” refers to the plane through which a viewer experiences a traditional staged production. When an actor shatters the illusion of reality by acknowledging the audience’s presence—often by directly addressing the viewers—that is known as “breaking the fourth wall.” The term has come to be used for similar behavior by characters in movies, TV shows and, of course, comics. From at least as early as Richard Outcault and The Yellow Kid, through Stan Lee addressing his readers in the captions of classic Marvel Comics stories, to Robert Crumb and Harvey Pekar literally speaking to their readers, comics shares—and celebrates—the potential of narrative arts to create and destroy (sometimes simultaneously) the illusion of reality that its stories work so hard to create. Raised by a theater set-painter father, comics innovator Will Eisner was part of this long tradition of fourth wall breaking.
