One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

What are the implications of the recent emergence of China and other non-Western economies? In the early 21st century, five rising or resurgent powers (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) formed an exclusive international club: the BRICS. The BRICS perceive an ongoing global power shift and contest the West’s pretensions to permanent stewardship of the world economic order. Despite their diversity, the BRICS cooperate to realize joint goals, including greater influence within the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

Over the course of three years, photographer Brian Finke went behind the scenes on hip-hop video shoots for such artists as Jay-Z, Busta’ Rhymes, and Kanye West. But, he was not focused on the celebrities—instead his interest was in the professional models who act in supporting roles in the music videos. Hours on set can be long and oftentimes boring. Moments of high-octane action can be followed by long periods of just waiting around. What Finke enjoys most about the photographs is the range of emotions he was able to capture—from excitement to boredom and focus to flirtation. Finke employed his signature, hyper-saturated aesthetic to document video models in their everyday work “uniforms”—often focusing on the imaginative hair, make-up, and styling that give the videos their distinction.

What roles do listening, remembering and going public play in the performance of oral history?

Lecture |
Over the past twenty years, and particularly after the publication of Empire (2000), the theoretical insights of the 1960s and 1970s Italian far left have been reappraised by scholars, architects and artists. However, little has been written about the work of the artists who participated in the 1960s and 1970s social movements, and viewed operaismo and autonomia as both conceptual toolboxes and repositories of powerful images. A shared concern for these artists was to devise works that mirrored the material culture of the struggles and “the workers’ point of view”. The talk will concentrate on Mario Mariotti, Pablo Echaurren, as well as on a Florentine collective, Archizoom. In particular, we will discuss their visualization of three figures: the worker, the militant and the monster. The talk will first examine the drawings appeared in the journal classe operaia (1964-1967). The second part of the talk will focus on an installation, Archizoom’s Centre for Eclectic Conspiracy (1968), which represented the cenotaph of Malcolm X. The drawings that Pablo Echaurren published in Lotta Continua in 1977 will close the narrative. A lecture by Jacopo Galimberti, University of Manchester.

Through colors, rhythms, and sounds, the video work and installation 5846, 5851, and 5852 v. the Population and Migration Authority portrays an Israeli supreme court's decision regarding three people requesting not to be sent to the Holot Detention Facility. Truths embedded within a given language are explored in relation to the rights of asylum seekers and immigrants in Israel as the work attempts to propose a way in which legal jargon can be translated into a visual language.   The work’s point of departure is the examination of the gap between the worlds of law and art; between translation, interpretation, and explanation; between the legal languages used by the court and the theoretical and legal research on the rights of asylum seekers and immigrants in Israel; between experts and laypeople. A new codification of a legal document is proposed through the creation of an original visual sign language; a musical interpretation; and through the voice of Mutasim A. Ali, an activist and asylum seeker himself.

Author Reading |
At the turn of the twentieth century, women famously organized to demand greater social and political freedoms like gaining the right to vote. However, few realize that the Progressive Era also witnessed the birth of the women’s self-defense movement. Some women were inspired to take up boxing and jiu-jitsu for very personal reasons that ranged from protecting themselves from attacks by strangers on the street to rejecting gendered notions about feminine weakness and empowering themselves as their own protectors.

The phenomenon of "identity politics" represents one of the primary impasses of the contemporary left. The recent experience of the Democratic primaries and the re-emergence of social movements from Occupy to Black Lives Matter has generated a new context for identity politics to become an active force, and new ground to relitigate the frustrating debates between the partisans of "race" and "class" ad infinitum.  In Mistaken Identity, Asad Haider reaches for a different approach - one rooted in the rich legacies of the black freedom struggle. Drawing from the words and deeds of black revolutionary theorists, he argues that identity politics is not synonymous with anti-racism, but instead amounts to the neutralization of its movements, a retreat from the crucial passage from identity to solidarity, and from individual recognition to collective struggle against an oppressive social structure.

Be part of a unique experience that will surely surprise even the pickiest jazz enthusiasts of the East Village. A quartet of exceptionally talented musicians from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia will celebrate a sound of unity. Oskar Török (trumpet), Piotr Wyleżoł (piano), Tomáš Liška (double bass) and András Dés (percussion) named their band Sz.Š.S. Quartet, a reference to a sound written differently in each language but sounding the very same (‘sh’) to emphasize that as neighbors, these countries are “stronger together” if united. The so-called Visegrad countries share a history of more than 1,000 years and a vast cultural heritage. This brave crew will show you Eastern Europeans have a few surprises up their sleeves when it comes to jazz as well. These new musicians from Europe’s Eastern ends will surely surprise New York’s jazz fans.

Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with the Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V. Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead?

António Zambujo is a singer of brilliant subtlety and elegance. Considered an innovative pioneer as well as an heir to traditional fado, his popularity as a singer and guitarist in Portugal and abroad comes from a restless curiosity of musical influences from fado to bossa nova and jazz to French chanson. Born in the Alentejo region of Portugal, he grew up listening to the cante alentejano—choirs of men and women who sing of the land on which they work, local saints, and lost love.
