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.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Lecture | A New Genealogy of Neoliberalism


Where does this sneaking, yet ever more oppressive and widely experienced sense of a generalized lagging behind come from? A feeling which is only strengthened by the perpetual decree that evolution must be preceded by adaptation. In her talk, Barbara Steigler will explore the genealogy of this new imperative which takes us back to the 1930s, to the sources of a new and very powerful political thought—since baptized as “neoliberalism”—which told a great story about the maladjustment of the human race to its new environment. By drawing two completely different meanings from the Darwinian revolution, Walter Lippmann and John Dewey proposed two radically opposed visions of the new liberalism and democracy.

Each is the other’s spitting image, and Agathe, who has just separated from her husband, is even more defiant and inquiring than Ulrich.

Discussion | Is Growth Good?: Social Impact on the Artisan Sector


The artisan sector is a $500B+ industry, yet the majority of indigenous artisans are living in poverty and are socially isolated. For many organizations that employ artisans and seek to bring their goods to global markets, growth is the goal. More sales means more employment, which means more impact. But is growth the answer? Or are smaller-scale approaches more likely to address inequities?

Author Reading | Mussolini's Camps: Civilian Internment in Fascist Italy (1940-1943)


Carlo Spartaco Capogreco’s book focuses on the Italian concentration camps between 1940 and 1943 and contextualizes them in the history of civilian detention between the rise of colonialism and the totalitarian era. When originally published in the popular Einaudi series of Gli Struzzi, Mussolini’s Camps made a statement, both historiographical and political, on the lack of public focus on the history of state violence and the parallel crystallization of the memory of Auschwitz to stand for every form of abuse perpetrated in the Nazi-Fascist era.

Discussion | The Power of the Artist


Art has the power to move us—but who has the power to create art, to present it, and to control the narratives around it? David Zwirner and The New York Review of Books present the second in a series of talks exploring the intersection of power and culture: a conversation that brings together electrifying artists to discuss the ways in power and art go hand in hand, and the ways in artist shape and are shaped by the cultural moments they exist in. This conversation will investigate how creators—from visual artists to poets and playwrights—both wield power and are subject to the power of institutions, patrons, and cultural dialogue. It will investigate how artists conceive the power that their works might have, and it will grapple with how entities possessing power—the public, the artist, and the work itself—come into contact with one another, sometimes with combustible results. The discussion brings together four vital voices: Elizabeth Alexander, poet, essayist, and playwright, and president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; playwright and actor Jeremy O. Harris; author and cultural critic Fran Lebowitz; and artist Lisa Yuskavage. Moderated by Daniel Mendelsohn, Editor-at-Large of The New York Review of Books.

Performance | eat | GOLD | art: Boundary-Crossing Performance Art


In this interactive boundary-crossing live performance, Austrian artists Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter explore the relationship between food (over)consumption and the reaction of the body both as a physiological phenomenon and an artistic display. They challenge the audience to interact with their own digestive tract and their individual bodily functions. The artists' bodies are at the guests' disposal during the performance. EAT THAT! We consist of our food. Every molecule that people eat is part of the body for about 7 years. We shape our body with our selection of calories and food. For several decades, this process of body design has been an essential topic for Western societies. And it is gaining in significance. Yet there is nothing more symbolic, holier, more cultural than eating. Eating equals morality. In this performance we work with body and mind, with old, new and future myths about the absorption of nature and its transformation into culture. Ultimately, nature and culture meet in the human stomach.
