New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Lecture |


Lecturer Nomy Arpaly of Brown University writes: "It is widely agreed that benevolence is not the whole of the moral life, but it is not as widely appreciated that benevolence is an irreducible part of that life. This paper argues that Kantian efforts to characterize benevolence, or something like it, in terms of reverence for rational agency fall short. Such reverence, while credibly an important part of the moral life, is no more the whole of it than benevolence."

For years, their roles were simply reversed. Theatre director Konrad took care of the household and upbringing of their two children, while Christine tried to work her way up as an anaesthetist at a clinic. But that’s about to come to an end now. Konrad has a chance of directing a readaptation of Hebbel’s “Nibelungen”, and an au pair from Argentina is to take care of the kids. But nothing goes as planned, because the old roles have remained in place and only the line-up has changed. 96 min. In German with English subtitles.
