Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status.

Lecture | Migrant Struggle. Anarchist Resistance and Controlled Chaos in Greece


This talk and screening, reflecting upon recent work by Sherry Millner and Ernie Larsen, will examine the value of anarchist practices such as direct action, reciprocity (or solidarity), autonomous forms of organisation and assembly, and tactical illegalism in support of migrant struggles in Thessaloniki, a city located on the Balkan route, in eastern Greece. Since 2009 the artist duo’s involvement, primarily with the anarchist migrant support group Clandestina, has led to radical cultural production across a considerable array of platforms. In July 2016 they conducted outdoor screenings of short-form radical experimental films at the (unsanctioned) No Border encampment on the campus of Aristotle University where about 2000 anti-authoritarian migrants and activists engaged in 12 days of protest, education, and cultural exchange. Within this context, Millner and Larsen will screen How Animals and Plants Live, a 17-minute video essay that concentrates on the physical, social and affective consequences of the government’s violent eviction of migrants and their supporters from the self-organised squat Orfanotrofeio in late July 2016.

Tour | High Line Tour


The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Film | Fire at Sea: Screening and Panel


Lampedusa has been at the top of headlines as the first landing point for African and Middle Eastern migrants attempting to reach Europe. This film event couples a screening of the powerful documentary, Fire at Sea, nominated for a 2016 Academy Award and winner of the Berlin Film Festival’s Golden Bear for Best Film, with a panel discussion on the violence that surrounds contemporary borderlands. Shot between Lampedusa and the Mediterranean, Fire at Sea contrasts the violence surrounding maritime border crossings with the texture of life in Lampedusa and the effect that migration has had on the island. The New School’s Anne McNevin and visiting distinguished professor, Sandro Mezzadra join us in an audience discussion on the tensions and conflicts brought about by borderland demarcations.

Film | Brett Story's The Prison in Twelve Landscapes (2016): Incarceration in the U.S.


More people are imprisoned in the United States at this moment than in any other time or place in history, yet the prison itself has never felt further away or more out of sight. This film is about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. Instead, the film unfolds as a cinematic journey through a series of landscapes across the USA where prisons do work and affect lives, from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires, to a Bronx warehouse full of goods destined for the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs. 90 min.

Among the most famous and engaging works by Michelangelo (1475-1564) are the twenty sheets from Casa Buonarroti with the drawings for the fortification of Florence. In the whole graphic oeuvre of Michelangelo, these sheets represent the largest and most complex group for a single commission. Executed between 1528 and 1529 – that is, at the time of the so-called Second Florentine Republic, when the Medici were banished once again from the city – these projects show several proposals to improve the defense system for Florence in a great typological variety of solutions (including sketches, studies, surveys, and demonstration drawings). Long neglected, these sheets were only rediscovered in the twentieth century. In this talk, Prof. Mauro Mussolin of Columbia University will focus on the visual strategies adopted by Michelangelo to present these projects to his patrons and captivate their interests. He will also provide an analysis of the paper he used, its material aspect, and its use and reuse in the studio, offering a comprehensive and more articulated chronological setting for the over seventy proposals for fortifications sketched or outlined in the Casa Buonarroti sheets.

Lecture | Definitions of Space


Often, architectural space is defined by requirements which are totally arbitrary and alien to the discipline of architecture itself. This lecture will focus on architecture and its medium, the three-dimensional space, not in a closed, clearly defined way, but instead in an experimental way that opens up various approaches for defining and thinking about space. Speaker Christian Kerez was born in 1962 in Maracaibo, Venezuela and obtained his degree in architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. After extensive published work in the field of architectural photography, he opened his own architectural office in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1993. He has been appointed as a visiting professor in design and architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich since 2001, as Assistant Professor since 2003 and as a full professor for design and architecture since 2009.

Lecture | The Life of the Mind in New York City


Philosophy began in the city amongst diverse people pursuing wisdom and democracy, what role might it play now in this time of political divisiveness and ecological/economic crises? Menser will explore possible (and actual!) roles for philosophy and public institutions striving for participatory democracy, raise questions about the values that drive it and concepts that shape it, and offer examples of it in action right here in NYC, from climate adaptation to participatory budgeting.

Gallery Talk | Tal Gilboa and Elizabeth Stehl Kleberg discuss their exhibition Let Me Hold Your Breath


Tal Gilboa and Elizabeth (Liz) Stehl Kleberg collage lens-based media and sculpt images digitally. The presence of the video sculpture mimics the gaps in breath, the rhythm of pulse, and cyclical nature of the body. When immersed in the room with them, the visuals and audio loop parallel bodily patterns. The representation of the female body is particularly vital, as the projections stand in as the narratorial voice. The projected images, she, become fragmented through the optical play of reflections.
