Discussion | Coming of Age in Germany and the US (online)


What does it mean to live in a society, in which you, a young person, feel as if falling through the cracks? Left out, broken down, lonely? How do you handle experiences of everyday racism in a white-majority society, who do you turn to for inspiration and most importantly, how do you find your voice? Award-winning German journalists and authors Fatma Aydemir and Mohamed Amjahid have long thought about these questions in their works of fiction and non-fiction. In Ask me Anything, students accross the US are invited to join Sofia Sepulveda Pizarro (East Brunswick High School, NJ) and Jose Fernandez (Union Square Academy of Health and Sciences, NYC) as they discuss identity, belonging and what it means to come of age in Germany and the US.

Discussion | Ukrainian Artists Respond to War (online)


Ukrainian artists have been addressing Russian aggression in their country since the war between Russia and Ukraine began in 2014. Jolted by the illegal annexation of Crimea and by the invasion of the Donbas region, for years Ukrainian creative individuals have been developing innovative and challenging art that explores themes such as memory, gender, and displacement. The all-out attack on Ukraine’s existence begun on February 24th has further challenged these artists to respond creatively and to ensure the country’s survival. This round table examines the ways that Ukrainian music, film, literature, and visual art are engaged to counter the attack on Ukraine.

Play | Decomposed Theater: Drama


In a fragmented world, what remains? How much of ourselves, our memories, our souls, and our experiences will survive -- and in what order? And how do we fit these pieces together? Using theatrical magic, Ana Margineanu and BFA students have reassembled Matei Visniec's Theatre Decomposed into an original confection that explores and celebrates the emergence of the human spirit even as the world has shattered all around us.

Discussion | Children, Migration, and Mental Health (online)


A recent UNICEF report found that 36 Million children have been forcibly displaced as of 2020. Displaced children are an extremely vulnerable population, and are at great risk of developing physiological and psychological problems. In order to respond to the specific needs of displaced children, whether in temporary settlements or in high-income countries, it is essential to acknowledge the mental health risks these children incur, identify factors of vulnerability and resilience, and investigate the web of geopolitical and socioeconomic factors that influence global child displacement. Come together to discuss the current goals and findings of the research, and provide an opportunity to deepen our understanding of children, displacement, and mental health.

Talk | Exploring Conflict Intelligence Through the Lens of a Poem (online)


Each week from Feb 4 to Mar. 11, a different poem will be explored by the Irish poet and conflict mediator Pádraig Ó Tuama. His project during this time is exploring dynamics of conflict and sustainability through the lens of poetry. Poetry is a communicative technology that has emerged from every culture on earth. For as long as there’s been literature, individuals have turned to poetry for the purpose of communicating what mere sentences cannot communicate. At poetry’s heart can be ambivalence, rage, lament, resistance, regression, the murky world of dreams, and anxiety. In this way, poetry is primed to provide interest into the human animal’s behavior during times of conflict.

Performance | The Last of US — that safe spot in the dot above the I in the word life: Performance Art


This performance travels across two floors of the building and involves spoken text. Seating and a written transcript will be available upon request. Fia Backström stages a two-person performance as the final element of her new work. Backström charts an associative trajectory in this multifaceted work, which has unfolded in stages since the exhibition’s opening in November. The foundation of the work is a set of what the artist calls “givens” in the space—existing materials related to historical or recent activities such as temporary structural remedies, wall colors, and artworks previously installed.

They also discuss their impressions of legendary directors, George Abbott, Hal Prince, and Bob Fosse.

Opening Reception | Richard Hawkins: The Forrest Bess Variations


Hawkins will present a series of paintings created after the self-taught American painter Forrest Bess (1911-77). Bess used painting as a means to capture the astonishing visions he experienced, translating the workings of the unconscious into texture and color. A long-time admirer of Bess’s singular practice, Hawkins (who also hails from rural Texas) has repeatedly examined Bess’s oeuvre through his own lens, and the forthcoming show will highlight his most recent interventions into the late artist’s iconic work. Hawkins’s latest group of paintings channel Bess’s compositions and build impasto fields of tactile color, adapting symbols and text lifted from Bess’s personal cosmology into something new.
