Screening | Chimeras of the Cine-Machine: Films by Ana Vaz


A screening and Q&A with filmmaker Ana Vaz to discuss her films. Vaz’s films activate and question cinema as an art of the (in)visible and instrument capable of dehumanising the human, expanding its connections with forms of life — other than human or spectral. Apiyemiyekî? addresses the genocide of the Waimiri-Atroari people in 1970s through illustrations created by the indigenous population which refer us to the present day. In present-day Dominican Republic, Amérika: Bahía de las Flechas revisits Lake Enriquillo where Christopher Columbus landed in 1492 and confronted the native Taíno people to establish the first European settlement in America. Há Terra! is set in the Brazilian bush where land and character, predator and prey encounter one another in a chase, a hunt, and a tale of looking and becoming. Look closely at the mountains compares the dire mineral extraction issue in Brazil with a different outcome in Nord-Pas-de-Calais in France, where such extraction has ceased. Atomic Garden explores an elderly Japanese woman’s contaminated garden after the nuclear catastrophe of Fukushima.

Lecture | Quiet Revolutions and the Ends of the Ottoman Empire


The Constitutional Revolution of 1908 is the most famous revolution in Ottoman history. Scholars generally consider that revolution either as an "internal" affair in the context of Turkish nation-state formation (before there was such a things as a Turkish nation-state); or as a turning point in the doomed history of ecumenicity and interconfessional relations in the framework of Ottoman sovereignty. Rarely do historians discuss both in the same framework. When we merge these two frames, we see different actors and ideas. What happened between 1908 and 1923? And what did these historical events/facts mean to an array of actors who were invested in the Ottoman governing apparatus? I will discuss a few of the "quiet revolutions` that were going on underneath the noisier Constitutional Revolution, and histories that were written at the time to make sense of these revolutions, both quiet and noisy.

Screening | The Treasury of Human Inheritance: Work-in-Progress Film


The Treasury of Human Inheritance is a poetic film about the experience of living with and alongside genetic disease and disability. Tracing loops, echoes and repetitions across the physical and spiritual realms, the film combines documentation of family home movie footage; somatic and religious rituals for death and life after deathhttps://events.nyu.edu/event/330285-the-treasury-of-human-inheritance-a; abandoned urban architectures teeming with natural growth; celluloid film hand-processed in genetic material; and an analogue synthesizer soundtrack that mimics inheritance patterns of genetic disease. In essence, this is a film about a family – but, more than that, it is a film made from the everyday patterns we embody in order to live through and with one another. Followed by a discussion with director Alexis Kyle Mitchell.

Book Discussion | Designing the Forest and Other Mass Timber Futures (online)


Architect Lindsey Wikstrom's book traces wood’s passage from stewarded seed in the soil of forests, to harvested biomass, to laminated mass timber buildings. Pausing at each step in the supply chain, Wikstrom considers the labor and economies involved and looks closely at the way wood is grown, sourced, and transported, and its impacts on the biodiversity of the forest and health of our ecosystems. Beautifully illustrated by Wikstrom's drawings, the book argues that a more sensitive species-based approach is essential, with designers as choreographers of carbon, transferring and trading between forest, factory, site, and beyond.

Lecture | Solidarity in Time: The Week of Latin America in Belgrade in 1977 (in-person and online)


In this lecture, Jelena Vesić investigates the images of history in contemporary art, what she calls solidarity in time, engaging with the questions of how to think history in the present moment, beyond teleological and linear understandings of time and apologetic-nostalgic returns to “better past.” She focuses on the Tribune Program of SKC in Belgrade from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, which presented several important political gatherings: The Week of Spain in 1976, coinciding with the end of Franco’s dictatorship; Weeks of Latin America in the 1970s and early 1980s dedicated to the anti-colonial movements, guerrilla struggle, politically engaged art and militant cinema; and the conference Drug-ca žena (Comradess Women) in 1978, one of the first international gatherings of second-wave feminists outside the West. Vesić develops her concept of solidarity in time by probing how contemporary artists, theorists, and exhibition makers explore, remember, and actualize emancipatory histories, the actions of transnational networks of political solidarity, and the programs of cultural exchange. Is it possible to express solidarity in time beyond commemoration and reconstruction, but as a source of imagination? Jelena Vesić is an independent curator, writer, editor, and lecturer. She is active in the field of publishing, research and exhibition practices that intertwine political theory and contemporary art. Vesic is co-editor of the journal Red Thread (Istanbul), a member of the advisory board of Mezosfera (Budapest) and president of the association of art critics AICA Serbia.

In her latest book, the social and technology critic Ruha Benjamin insists imagination isn’t a luxury but a vital resource and powerful tool for collective liberation.
