Symposium | Trans | Acker: Trans, Queer and Genderqueer Readings of the Work of Kathy Acker


This event invites trans writers and critics to address Kathy Acker's work, not just for its rich material on gender but also more generally. Together, we will create a community of trans readings of Acker that is lacking in her current reception, as a resource both for Acker studies and for trans literature. The work of experimental writer Kathy Acker (1947-1997) has been read as feminist and as queer, and has inspired writers coming from those perspectives. But what about trans writers? Gender can be reversible and fluid in Acker in all sorts of interesting ways. Perhaps this is why her work has been a point of reference for quite a few trans writers and critics. Participants: Marquis Bey, Kay Gabriel, Juliana Huxtable, Grace Lavery, Megan Milks, Torrey Peters, K. K. Trieu, McKenzie Wark

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 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Talk | Idol Ads in the Seoul Metro: K-pop Fandom, Appropriation of Subway Space, and the Right to the City


In the 2010s a new phenomenon was spotted in the Seoul Metro. K-pop fans began adorning subway stations with large ads congratulating their heroes—the so-called K-pop idols—on their birthdays and other anniversaries. Not only did these fandom-financed ads transform the visual landscape of the Seoul Metro, they also invited novel spatial practices when fans, primarily girls and young women, toured the ads to take photographs of them and with them. This talk explores how fandom ads and fans visiting them make the Seoul Metro social and public in new ways. Interpreting ethnographic observations through Henri Lefebvre’s theory of the production of space, I frame fans’ ads themselves and engagements they invite as assertions of the “right to the city” and relate them to spatial interventions which reclaim urban spaces based on symbolic, not legal, ownership, such as murals and graffiti. I will argue that K-pop idol ads recapture the Seoul Metro from domination by commercial advertisers’ interests and appropriate it as a space of fandom, particularly of female fandom, and explore implications of these fandom practices for broader reclamation of subway surfaces as urban resources. With Olga Fedorenko, Associate Professor at the Anthropology Department of Seoul National University.

Lecture | On Getting Talked into an Intuition


Intuitions are often thought of as intellectual reflexes. But they are more malleable than reflexes: you can be talked into an intuition. Getting talked into an intuition is not just being caused to have an intuition, nor is it the same as being moved by an argument in favor of the intuition. Elijah Chudnoff (University of Miami) aims to bring this unique phenomenon into sharper focus and to describe a setting for thinking about the structures and mechanisms that might underlie it.

Play | Measure for Measure: An Adaptation of Shakespeare's Classic Comedy


It's 1979, Mardi Gras has been officially cancelled, yet the community is still celebrating. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful?

An associate of Cowell, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Aaron Copland, and other great composers of the time, Beyer was at the forefront of new music and composed breakthrough works for orchestra, percussion ensemble, and was a pioneer of early music technology.

Performance | I Can Drink the Distance: Plantationocene in 2 Acts: Performance Art


A new multimedia performative installation by Torkwase Dyson. Grounded in painting and sculpture, Dyson’s work considers the relationship between race and geography and engages with geometric abstraction to explore an alternative means to represent historical and environmental triumphs and trauma. Incorporating minimalist sculptural forms with acts of sound, movement, and literature, Dyson’s new work explores the practice of black movement as it relates to environmental liberation. Drawing on the artist’s theory of “black compositional thought ”, the project brings together contemporary thought leaders from a variety of disciplines to express spatial and architectural imagination in the time of the  “Plantationocene.” With diverse contributions that intersect with the artists’ architecture and direction, the project becomes a platform from which to navigate how paths, throughways, waterways, memories, architecture, objects and geographies are composed by black bodies and how properties of energy, space, scale, distance and sound interact as networks of liberation.

Classical Music | Maurice Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortileges


The Barnard-Columbia Chamber Singers perform Ravel’s charming one-act opera, The Child and the Spells, that tells the adventures of a small, naughty boy. Throwing a tantrum to end all tantrums, the child abuses his pets, breaks his toys, and lays waste to his room. But all that changes when the animals and toys and furniture come to life to teach him the importance of kindness and compassion.
