Opening Reception | Ladakh 1974–2018: A Photographic Homage to the Land of Many Passes


This exhibiton features the works of noted photographer Jaroslav Poncar, who has spent considerable time traveling through, and photographing, Ladakh, a sparse and captivating Buddhist land. Ladakh ("The land of many passes") is a mountainous region, located in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, and is known for its uniquely beautiful landscape and Buddhist monasteries. It is inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent, although quite sparsely populated. Born in Prague in 1945, Jaroslav Poncar lives in Cologne, where he was a professor in the Department of Imaging Sciences at the University of the Applied Sciences until his retirement in 2010. His photography travels have taken him to the Himalayas and Tibet, Central Asia, India, and Cambodia, and he was among the first Westerners permitted to travel to Ladakh after it was unexpectedly opened to foreign visitors in 1974. The present retrospective spans more than three decades, documenting the stunning beauty of Ladakh's landscape, as well as its continued commitment to preserving its Buddhist culture.

Author Reading | Misdemeanorland: Criminal Courts and Social Control in an Age of Broken Windows Policing


An in-depth look at the consequences of New York City’s dramatically expanded policing of low-level offenses. Felony conviction and mass incarceration attract considerable media attention these days, yet the most common criminal-justice encounters are for misdemeanors, not felonies, and the most common outcome is not prison. In the early 1990s, New York City launched an initiative under the banner of Broken Windows policing to dramatically expand enforcement against low-level offenses. Misdemeanorland is the first book to document the fates of the hundreds of thousands of people hauled into lower criminal courts as part of this policing experiment. Drawing on three years of fieldwork inside and outside of the courtroom, in-depth interviews, and analysis of trends in arrests and dispositions of misdemeanors going back three decades, author Issa Kohler-Hausmann argues that lower courts have largely abandoned the adjudicative model of criminal law administration in which questions of factual guilt and legal punishment drive case outcomes. Due to the sheer volume of arrests, lower courts have adopted a managerial model--and the implications are troubling. Kohler-Hausmann shows how significant volumes of people are marked, tested, and subjected to surveillance.
