Lecture | The Poetics of Digital Media: Tagging as Incantation and Incarnation on Social Network Platforms


In his new book, The Poetics of Digital Media (Polity 2018), Paul Frosh approaches digital media as poetic infrastructures and poetic performances: they populate our given lifeworlds with beings and objects and they also make manifest the mediated conditions of our existence through tangibility and disclosure. In this talk, Frosh fleshes out these ideas by focusing on the experience of being tagged in photographs uploaded to social media platforms. He argues that being tagged is a contemporary intensification of long-standing procedures for maintaining our being in the world: the naming of persons and the figural incarnation of bodies. However, tagging is also a generative procedure: when you tag someone your contacts and theirs are notified, and the tagged photograph is frequently replicated in contacts' various feeds. It is thus a way of performing sociability through the computational ‘selving’ of others, usually without their prior permission. Finally, tagging puts visual ‘flesh’ onto the informational and computational ‘bones’ underpinning the network apparatus. It thus produces a powerful poetic-ideological effect: the palpability of the apparatus as a sensuously inhabited world. Paul Frosh is a Professor in the Department of Communication and Journalism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research spans visual culture, media aesthetics, consumer culture, media witnessing, and cultural memory. His publications include Media Witnessing: Testimony in the Age of Mass Communication (2011, edited with Amit Pinchevski), and The Image Factory: Consumer Culture, Photography and the Visual Content Industry (2003).

Author Reading | Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own


Professor and author Kate Bolick discusses her book Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own.  “Whom to marry, and when will it happen—these two questions define every woman’s existence.” So begins Spinster, a revelatory and slyly erudite look at the pleasures and possibilities of remaining single. Using her own experiences as a starting point, journalist and cultural critic Kate Bolick invites us into her carefully considered, passionately lived life, weaving together the past and present to examine why­ she—along with over 100 million American women, whose ranks keep growing—remains unmarried.

Opening Reception | Slim...you don't got the juice: Multidisciplinary Departures from Figurative Representation


Slim…you don’t got the juice presents multidisciplinary departures from familiar modes of figurative representation, as they have evolved in the realm of photographic discourse. Wilmer Wilson IV has developed strategies of redaction and annotation in his work that begin to destabilize the norms of making and viewing portraiture through visual, material, and technical manipulation. An exploration into the complex renderings of individual subject-hood versus object-hood in portraiture, the artist has conceived of a stapled-surface-as-viewing-device that mediates image with material. The device is manifest in a series of staple works that almost fully shroud the photographic subjects beneath dense fields of metal fasteners. A set of large-scale ink drawings, in which small marks accumulate into compact, organ-like clusters, further interrogate the role of density in forming and describing a surface. In conversation with the staple works, they become almost speculative veils or blueprints for coating and protecting the image. Scaled wall images of figures taken while Wilson was moving at high speed are presented in the second gallery. The blurred images erode the details of their depicted subjects, and begin to confuse the function of monumentality and the narratives of value in public space. Wilmer Wilson IV is a recipient of The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage Fellowship and an American Academy in Rome Affiliated Fellowship. Select institutions that have presented his work include The New Museum, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Boston, MA; Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, PA; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AR; American University Museum, Washington, DC; Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, AL; National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; and In Flanders Fields Museum, Ieper, Belgium.

Film | Redemption Blues (2017): Reckoning with Vestiges of the Holocaust


A documentary about the onerous legacy of the Holocaust, begins where conventional Shoah narratives leave off and traces a path forward, exploring redemption through the second generation’s point of view. At a time when the last members of the survivor generation are bidding us farewell, and historical witnessing cannot endure, Redemption Blues engages with emotional and political vestiges that are yet to be resolved. The film is presented as an artistic reckoning and a deeply personal journey into the future of living with the legacy of the Holocaust. The perspectives of survivors and the guiding narrative of the filmmaker are woven into a stream of music that runs from nostalgia and religious sources into an ocean of free, improvisational creation. Could this be a way forward, given the many spiritual and political fallacies? 84 min. Followed by a discussion between director Peter Statsny and Paola Mieli  of the Après-coup Psychoanalytic Association. Peter Stastny is a filmmaker and psychiatrist living in New York and Vienna. His film work began as an impulse to document the pioneering accomplishments of former psychiatric patients and activists, Nerve (1995), followed by several collaborations with current and former patients, In the House (1996) and Coney Island (2003). Since 1999 he has also addressed the consequences of the Shoah in experimental documentary fashion, including Conversation in the Mountains (1999), based on a story by Paul Celan, and Munkacs 60-year Reunion (2005)). Paola Mieli is a psychoanalyst in New York City. She is the president Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association (New York) and a member of Le Cercle Freudien (Paris) and of The European Federation of Psychoanalysis (Strasbourg).

Film | The Other Boys of Summer (2018): Civil Rights and the Negro Leagues


This documentary debuts in New York City on the centennial of Jackie Robinson's birthday. The film explores civil rights in America through the lives of Negro League baseball players. Narrated by Cicely Tyson, it features never-before-seen interviews with some of the men (and women) who played alongside Jackie Robinson and changed baseball and America forever. Through the lens of America’s Pastime, The Other Boys of Summer connects a generation of trailblazers to issues monopolizing our headlines today. Director Lauren Meyer joins Jim Robinson and Pedro Sierra, two players featured in the film, to discuss the documentary following the screening. Lauren Meyer is an Emmy nominated director with a strong reputation for compelling storytelling. Her work has been seen on dozens of networks as well as Netflix, Amazon, and many digital platforms. She loves championing the underdog and crafting beautiful imagery to share stories. She began her career in Los Angeles and is currently based in NYC. Born in Harlem on January 21, 1930, Jim Robinson used to walk to Yankee Stadium and The Polo Grounds to watch baseball with his father. At the Harlem Y, he developed a friendship with Roy Campanella who ultimately helped him get a baseball scholarship to North Carolina A&T State University. Robinson played for The Philadelphia Stars, Indianapolis Clowns, and KC Monarchs in the Negro Leagues. He also played in the minors for the St. Louis Cardinals organization. After baseball, Robinson worked for the NYC Housing Authority and earned a master's degree from Hunter College. Born in Havana, Cuba in 1938, Pedro Sierra broke into the Negro Leagues as a teenager and played for the Indianapolis Clowns and The Detroit Stars during the 1950s. He was drafted into the U.S. Army and spent three years pitching for the U.S. Army baseball team. Following his time in service, he spent five years in the minors and was invited to tryout for the major league by Ted Williams and The Washington Senators. Sierra went on to play professionally in Canada and Mexico; after retiring from playing baseball, he coached college baseball. Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)

Author Reading | The Men in My Life: Actress Patricia Bosworth's Memoir of Love and Art in 1950s Manhattan


The Men in My Life is a dramatic memoir of love and art in 1950s Manhattan. Patricia Bosworth defies her era’s repressive conventions while adjusting to her lawyer father’s faltering career, ruined by defending the Hollywood Ten. Married and divorced by age 20 and slammed by her brother’s suicide, she finds her way to the Actors Studio, where she studies alongside Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. On Broadway she acts opposite Paul Muni, Helen Hayes, Elaine Stritch and appears with Audrey Hepburn in The Nun’s Story. Bosworth is the bestselling biographer of Diane Arbus, Montgomery Clift, Marlon Brando, and Jane Fonda.
