Trumpism and resurgent authoritarianism have generated a tidal wave of opposition around the globe. In the U.S., a movement of millions of people in active revolt against Trumpism—known as #TheResistance—has emerged. Its self-development requires that we strengthen its independence from the Democratic Party and from “leftists” who would co-opt or derail it. People must also combat the idea that the left can somehow win over the “base” that supports Trump and other authoritarians and turn white nationalists towards revolutionary socialism. That is a pipe dream of a segment of the “left” that wants power for itself and which acted in ways that helped Trump win the 2016 presidential election. Speakers: The veteran activist of the British Left Ravi Bali and Professor emeritus of economics at Pace University, Andrew Kliman.

In Damnation Island Stacy Horn evokes the forgotten ghosts of Roosevelt Island, a place where prisoners were enlisted to care for the insane. The narrow island in the East River once contained a lunatic asylum, two prisons, an almshouse, and a number of hospitals. Designed to be state-of-the-art, both humane and efficient, Blackwell’s Island quickly became, in the words of Charles Dickens, “a lounging, listless madhouse.” Using city records, newspaper articles, and archival reports Stacy Horn brings the stories of the inhabitants back to life, and highlights the work of the period’s officials, reformers, and journalists.  New York Times reporter Ginia Bellafante joins Horn in conversation, followed by a Q&A. Registration does not guarantee admission. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. The Program Room opens at 6 PM.

A reading featuring two fiction writers whose memoirs about illness offer stories of survival, pain and transformation. Sick is Porochista Khakpour’s grueling, emotional journey — as a woman, as an Iranian-American, a writer, and a lifelong sufferer of undiagnosed health problems — through the chronic illness that perpetually left her a victim of anxiety, living a life stymied by an unknown condition. MacArthur ‘genius’ grant winner Yiyun Li’s Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life is a love letter to the books that have kept her alive through depression and an intimate portrait of an immigrant writer that asks why write, and why live? Don’t miss this event with two of the most remarkable voices in fiction on being made and making themselves, moderated by Elif Batuman.

Performance |
Brazilian artist Pedro Zylbersztajn will perform a physical record of the process of re/constitution of language. Unfolding as a 12" disc/book and a performance, it is based on a circular text that regards language use as a permanent building site. The makeshift process of fabricating the record creates, in itself, a series of impediments to a pristine listening of the words. As the needle progresses and radial distances diminish, textural noises take over and sound resolution decreases. Each side of the record provides new breath to the text, that degenerates and regenerates differently for every cycle.
