The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Slide Lecture | Postwar Tokyo: Reality and Imagination through the Camera


Tokyo developed out of the ruins of war into a sprawling city of 10 million people in only a quarter of a century. It was a process of change – from the capital of a military empire that once invaded East Asia to the subject of occupation by U.S. armed forces and further to an Olympic host and consumer city where young people enjoy economic “wealth.” It is important to know that this process of change was recorded in countless photographs, documentary films, TV programs and so on. In other words: visualized through the gaze of the camera, whether from/to the U.S. or from/to the Emperor. In this lecture, Shunya Yoshimi (University of Tokyo) will show a history of dynamic exchanges between the development of Tokyo and the diverse practices of visualizing its urban environment throughout the postwar era. Shunya Yoshimi is Professor of Sociology, Media and Cultural Studies, Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies at University of Tokyo.

Film | Detlev Buck's Measuring the World (2012): German Drama


Their childhoods couldn’t have been more different: Alexander von Humboldt, born into a noble family, had the best private tutors in Berlin, a wealthy and prestigious family home and the protection of the powerful.

Despite of the different personal development during their childhood and puberty the both scientists do have one  doubtless similarity: the curiosity. 119 min. In German with English subtitles.
