Lecture | Modern Times in North Korea: Scenes from the Founding Years


North Korea is often portrayed in mainstream media as a backward place without a history worth knowing. But during its founding years (1945-1950), North Korea experienced a radical social revolution when everyday life became the single most important arena for experiencing the revolution in progress. Historical accounts across the political spectrum characterize the five year post-liberation period as a period of competing ideologies. But what distinguished these competing visions for Korea's decolonization were not lofty political goals, since everyone advocated independence and democracy, but the minute details of how everyday life should be organized.

Opening Reception | Installation: Passage by Michele Beck & Jorge Calvo


An immersive installation composed of 4-video projections, sound and gravel. The installation was inspired by the Japanese rock garden Ryōan-ji in Kyoto, Japan and its questioning of linear time and commonly accepted concepts of reality. Beck and Calvo weave these conceptual ideas into the installation using video projections and experimental sound compositions to create a bridge from the ancient rock garden to contemporary concerns about embodiment, memory and life cycles.

Opening Reception | Paintings by Marcel Eichner


From the gallery: "There are artists who demonstrate early in life an uncanny feeling for the fluid wanderings of a drawn line which directs their imagination and intimate dreams. Eichner's line meanders on the canvas, creating fragile personages and grotesque creatures as it passes, and when it rests there is a world filled with nightmarish scenes and mad demons. Fortunately, a glimmer of humor within these complex, imaginative compositions gives us a reprieve from the chaos and intensity within."

Opening Reception | The Bruce High Quality Foundation presents Meditations


The Bruce High Quality Foundation, whose installations, videos, paintings, sculptures, and performances simultaneously celebrate and critique art’s social history, will present a single exhibition of new work in two Manhattan locations. Meditations is described by BHQF as “a meditation on the historical relationship between works of art and the consolidation and dispersion of political power.” Through the sculptures, painting, and video, the artists will use the visual language of antiquity to explore the ways objects have served as manifestations of power, and to investigate how preservation, historicizing, and collecting practices reveal and obscure other paths of influence and manipulation.

In reality there only exists the endless ocean that cuts the island from the rest of the world. It is hard to find any other country where the discrepancy between its image and reality is as huge as on Cuba. 99 min.

Film | Danish Documentary: Nagieb Khaja's My Afghanistan - Life in the Forbidden Zone (2013)


Nagieb Khaja, a Danish filmmaker with Afghan roots, decided to capture the “real” Afghanistan. At first glance it was a simple idea. Afghans – including farmers, construction workers, nurses and local elders – would shoot their view of their country on cellphone cameras. The raw, rough footage offers a surprisingly poetic and novel view of the forlorn country and its inhabitants. 88 min.
