Author Reading | No Place for Russia: European Security Institutions Since 1989


Author William Hill, Professor Emeritus of National Security Strategy, National War College, Washington D.C., discusseses his book. The optimistic vision of a “Europe whole and free” after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 has given way to disillusionment, bitterness, and renewed hostility between Russia and the West. In No Place for Russia, Hill traces the development of the post–Cold War European security order to explain today’s tensions, showing how attempts to integrate Russia into a unified Euro-Atlantic security order were gradually overshadowed by the domination of NATO and the EU—at Russia’s expense. Hill argues that the redivision of Europe has been largely unintended and not the result of any single decision or action. Instead, the current situation is the cumulative result of many decisions—reasonably made at the time—that gradually produced the current security architecture and led to mutual mistrust.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: A Curator's Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by curator Elizabeth V. Warren.

Lecture | The Role of Finance Capital in Ownership Concentration, Inequality and Climate Change


This presentation makes use of data synthesised from the Bureau van Dyk (which contains information from around 100 sources and covers over 60 million listed companies around the world), to estimate the nature and form of ownership of very large corporations globally, and in selected countries including the USA. Questions to be addressed include: • to what extent does finance capital control the ownership of large corporations, through what mechanisms, and how does this vary between some leading countries? • has the concentration of ownership increased in recent periods? • what are the implications for inequality? • how does the ownership of large firms relate to action (or inaction) on climate change, and what are the implications for future action in this area?   David Peetz is Professor of Employment Relations at Griffith University, in the Centre for Work, Organisation and Wellbeing.

Film | Made in Mexico: Exploitation in the Fashion Industry


The fashion industry remains rife with exploitation - low wages, unsafe conditions and unrest. Yet the industry also has the power to be a force for good. It employs 75+ million people, mostly women in their early twenties. These jobs could be the best first step out of poverty. Fundamental to these problems is the invisibility of makers throughout the industry’s vast and complex supply chain. Millions of women toil unseen and unrecognized, without a voice in the system. Enter Remake. Labeled as the Peace Corps of fashion, Remake is a non-profit that believes that fashion can be a force for good. Schedule: 6 - 6:30 pm: Registration and Welcome, Dean Burak Cakmak 6:30 - 7:00 pm: Remake x Parsons Partnership, Ayesha Barenblat, Founder and Brendan McCarthy, Director BFA Fashion Design Systems & Materiality 7:00 - 7:30 pm: Made in Mexico Film Screening 7:30 - 8:45 pm: Panel discussion featuring students: Allie (Cambodia), Yimin (Sri Lanka) and Josefina (Mexico).

Author Reading | The Animatic Apparatus: Animation, Vitality and the Futures of the Image


Unprecedented kinds of experience, and new modes of life are now produced by simulations, from the CGI of Hollywood blockbusters to animal cloning to increasingly sophisticated military training software, while animation has become an increasingly powerful pop-cultural form. Today, the extraordinary new practices and radical objects of simulation and animation are transforming our neoliberal-biopolitical “culture of life”. Deborah Levitt's The Animatic Apparatus offers a genealogy for the animatic regime and imagines its alternative futures, countering the conservative-neoliberal notion of life’s sacred inviolability with a new concept and ethics of animatic life.

Discussion | A Tale Of Two Asylums: The Fall of Greystone and Rise of the Richardson Olmsted Campus


In 2009, an article published by the National Register of Historic Buildings observed that the 19th-century asylums at Buffalo, designed by H. H. Richardson, and Morris Plains, NJ, designed by Samuel Sloan, were at an identical turning point for demolition or preservation. A decade later, Buffalo’s Richardson Olmsted Campus has a new lease on life, while Greystone was unnecessarily demolished. Featuring two espresso talks, a short video, and a moderated conversation, this event presents the diverging tales of these remarkable structures and what their respective fates might portend for remaining Kirkbride Hospitals for the Insane and other complex buildings like them.

Opening Reception | From Immersive Installations To Ceramics


Hag is a new body of ceramic vessels that explores the grotesquely feminine power of rage. This is a continuation of Caitlin Rose Sweet’s use of the vessel as a site of interrogation of capitalist constructs of labor, hierarchy, and productivity. In this installation Sweet is inspired by folklore of witches that lurk the edges of society and seek revenge for trespasses against mother nature. Hag transforms decorative ceramics into long nailed beasts that drip with desire and revolt. Caitlin Rose Sweet is a mixed media artist who utilizes the handmade to explore embodiment and how objects shape our perception of self. Her queer craft refuses traditional concepts of functionality and mastering of skill as she pushes forms to new horizons. Her work ranges from immersive installations to intimate scaled functional ceramics.

Lecture | Is It Wrong for Feminists to Pay Other Women for Housework?


Many philosophers have suggested that the aim of imaginative philosophical inquiry is not to provide right answers, but right questions. This means demonstrating why certain questions are meaningless, based on false assumptions, or become senseless when posed in a wrong context. The question in the title appears to be a good candidate for this type of philosophical inquiry and Johanna Okslala will try to show why. However, she will also argue that posing the question is nevertheless important, perhaps not for moral philosophy, but for feminist politics.

Author Reading | House of Secrets: The Many Lives of a Florentine Palazzo


House of Secrets tells the remarkable story of Palazzo Rucellai from behind its celebrated façade. The house, beginning with its piecemeal assemblage by one of the richest men in Florence in the fifteenth century, has witnessed endless drama, from the butchering of its interior to a courtyard suicide to champagne-fueled orgies on the eve of World War I to a recent murder on its third floor. When author Allison Levy, an art historian, serendipitously discovers a room for let in the house, she lands in the vortex of history and is tested at every turn—inside the house and out. Her residency in Palazzo Rucellai is informed as much by the sense of desire giving way to disappointment as by a sense of denial that soon enough must succumb to truth. House of Secrets is about the sharing of space, the tracing of footsteps, the overlapping of lives. It is about the willingness to lose oneself behind the façade, to live between past and present, to slip between the cracks of history and the crevices of our own imagination.

Play | Balm in Gilead: Exiles on the Upper West Side

Opening Reception | State of Tyranny: Understanding Authoritarianism


How do we understand tyranny? Its global presence is felt and heard daily. It permeates news cycles, it defines the plots of television shows, and it has to be explained to our children. Tyranny defines contemporary culture, and though it is often talked about conceptually, its more subtle spatial manifestations have a real impact on our cities and public spaces. Throughout the world, people, communities, and territories are at risk due to the design of the spaces they inhabit. Despite a steady rise in street-level activism, hostile and defensive design have gradually and quietly transformed our buildings, parks, and homes into sites of surveillance and societal control. State of Tyranny unveils the methods and tools of urban design that seek to disable public agency in the name of public safety. The exhibition reorients our understandings of the power of the city and state-and the architectures they employ-through an installation in the gallery space and a series of walking tours through Lower Manhattan called the Tyranny Trail.

Author Reading | The Lions' Den: Zionism and the Left from Hannah Arendt to Noam Chomsky


In this lively intellectual history of the political Left, cultural critic Susie Linfield investigates how eight prominent twentieth-century intellectuals struggled with the philosophy of Zionism, and then with Israel and its conflicts with the Arab world. Constructed as a series of interrelated portraits that combine the personal and the political, the book includes philosophers, historians, journalists, and activists such as Hannah Arendt, Arthur Koestler, I. F. Stone, and Noam Chomsky. In their engagement with Zionism, these influential thinkers also wrestled with the twentieth century’s most crucial political dilemmas: socialism, nationalism, democracy, colonialism, terrorism, and anti-Semitism.

Author Reading | The Scar: A Personal History of Depression and Recovery


At the age of twenty-seven, married, living in New York, and working in book design, Mary Cregan gives birth to her first child, a daughter she names Anna. But it's apparent that something is terribly wrong, and two days later, Anna dies--plunging Cregan into suicidal despair. Decades later, sustained by her work, a second marriage, and a son, Cregan reflects on this pivotal experience and attempts to make sense of it. She weaves together literature and research with details from her own ordeal--and the still visible scar of her suicide attempt--while also considering her life as part of the larger history of our understanding of depression. In fearless, candid prose, Cregan examines her psychotherapy alongside early treatments of melancholia, weighs the benefits of shock treatment against its terrifying pop culture depictions, explores the controversy around antidepressants and how little we know about them--even as she acknowledges that the medication saved her life--and sifts through the history of the hospital where her recovery began. Perceptive, intimate, and elegantly written, The Scar vividly depicts the pain and ongoing stigma of clinical depression, giving greater insight into its management and offering hope for those who are suffering.

Discussion | New German Film in New York: From the 60s to the 90s


This is an evening in honor of longtime film programmer and DAADAA 2018 Award for International Exchange recipient Ingrid Scheib-Rothbart.   After World War II the newly established Goethe House New York emerged as a cultural mediator between a defeated Germany and the United States, starting a transatlantic cultural dialogue that would lead to a new mutual understanding. In the 1960s, the Goethe-Institut started introducing to New Yorkers a new generation of German filmmakers who sought to confront the country’s Nazi past and build a new civil society: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Volker Schlöndorff, Margarethe von Trotta, and Wim Wenders, to name just a few. To present these filmmakers to a wider audience, Scheib-Rothbart forged long-lasting ties with major New York cultural organizations including the Museum of Modern Art, the Jewish Museum, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Film Forum, Anthology Film Archives, local universities, and many others.   PROGRAM 7:00pm   Welcome and introductions by Georg Blochmann, Executive Director, Goethe-Institut New York; and Eric Haratsch, President, DAADAA USA 7:15pm  Conversation with Kathinka Dittrich van Weringh, former Program Director, Goethe-Institut New York; Laurence Kardish, former Senior Curator, Department of Film, Museum of Modern Art; and Ingrid Scheib-Rothbart.

Author Reading | A Tokyo Romance: An Outsider Fits In


When Ian Buruma arrived in Tokyo in 1975, a young film student in love with Japanese theater and movies, Japan was little more in his mind than a fantasy of a faraway land. But he soon found his way to the heart of the city’s underground culture, even accepted as a member by an avant-garde Butoh group. Amid the dancers, carnival acts, and hustlers of the city’s feverish and surreal night life, he became the rare gaijin, or outsider, who is allowed in. Beautifully written, funny, and deeply touching, A Tokyo Romance is a portrait of a young writer and the city that shaped him.
