Lecture | Carl von Clausewitz and Contemporary International Relations Theory


In his writings on the topic of war, Carl von Clausewitz masterfully combined practical insight with theoretical reflection. His analysis of the intimate relationship between war and politics had and still has a profound impact on military practice and on political science scholarship alike. It is thus surprising that when scholars in the political science subfield of International Relations recently turned to political practices as an object of study, they simply ignored the Prussian General. In his presentation, Tobias Wille will argue that they did so to their own detriment. As he will demonstrate, Clausewitz’ writings on war offer valuable insights into the practices of international relations. To clarify what Clausewitz can contribute to the so-called “practice turn in IR,” Wille will offer an interpretation of his theory of war as a theory of practice. He will then illustrate the analytical potential of such a theory of practice through a discussion of what Clausewitzians have written about the Vietnam War. Wille will conclude by arguing that Clausewitz can help connect the practice turn in IR, which in its current form largely builds on constructivist theorizing, to the realist tradition of international thought.

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.

Jazz | Midday Jazz: Performance By Jazz Trio


Valerie Capers with John Robinson & Doug Richardson. Becoming the first blind graduate of Julliard School of Music, pianist, vocalist and composer Valerie Capers did work with Ray Brown, Slide Hampton, James Moody, Max Roach, and Dizzy Gillespie.  Miss Capers’ cantata, with its genuine jazz roots, is broadly in the vein of Duke Ellington’s sacred concerts. But while Mr. Ellington worked out of his own personal style, miss capers has found her sources in the entire spectrum of jazz and has used them very perceptively as part of a continuity rather than the miscellany of the Ellington concerts. ~John S.

Book Signing | Cop: NYPD Photos After 9/11


Christopher Anderson began photographing New York City cops in the wake of 9/11, as the visual landscape of the city he called home began to change. Bomb blast barriers went up, cops carrying larger guns seemed to be everywhere, and whilst the increased presence of security was designed, in part, to make New Yorkers feel safe, it reminded Anderson that something was deeply wrong. Then, in the wake of Occupy Wall Street, the death of Eric Garner and the election of Trump, Anderson found himself making photographs of cops on the streets of New York City once again, as a form of unconscious protest on a larger sense of authority. On assessing the images he was making, Anderson began to see them as something entirely different than a protest or commentary on power - there was almost a sentimentality. This series of photographs, made with a long lens on the streets of New York, is reproduced in rich saturated color and interspersed with black-and-white images that have been printed, distressed, and re-photographed.

Opening Reception | Ed Ruscha: Six Decades of Printmaking


Born in 1937 in Omaha, Nebraska, Ed Ruscha grew up in Oklahoma City before moving to Los Angeles in 1956 to study art at the Chouinard Institute (now known as CALARTS). Upon graduating in 1960, Ruscha attracted notice as part of the Pop art movement but with a sensibility altogether his own. His work for ad agencies, honed his skills in design and layout, which became integral to his oeuvre across all media. Ruscha looked to tropes of advertising and brought words to the forefront of his paintings. In speaking about his renowned use of words, Ruscha said, “I like the idea of a word becoming a picture, almost leaving its body, then coming back and becoming a word again.”

Opening Reception | The Object as Evidence: An Intimate Portrait of Three-Dimensional Art


Traditionally, sculpture has relied on a special kind of witnessing to establish its truth; you must move around the piece in order to grasp its agency and materiality. The Object as Evidence attempts to challenge some of the limitations of sculpture while imagining new ways to trace the truth of objects. Michael A. Robinson reveals an intimate portrait of three-dimensional art and an example of “investigative aesthetics.”

As we approach the 18th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, social media and online propaganda have come to play an outsized role in radicalizing and mobilizing individuals in the West to join and act on behalf of violent Islamist terrorist movements. Beyond kinetic efforts on the battlefield and counter terrorism investigations abroad and at home, countering violent extremist (CVE) initiatives are increasingly being considered as viable policy options to mitigate the threat.

Author Reading | And How Are You, Dr. Sacks?: A Biographical Memoir of Oliver Sacks


Lawrence Weschler was a newly minted staff writer at The New Yorker when the magazine’s then-editor William Shawn green lit his idea for a profile of Dr. Oliver Sacks. Four years into this process, Sacks changed his mind, owning up to the fact that he couldn’t bear the idea of reading such a piece while he was alive. Still, the two remained close friends, and thirty years later, as he was dying, Sacks urged Weschler pick it up again. The result is Weschler’s biographical memoir of arguably one of the 20th century’s greatest medical writers. Weschler, now a veteran of The New Yorker, author, and frequent contributor to NPR, is joined in conversation by Robert Krulwich, co-host of the Peabody Award-winning program Radiolab. Krulwich interviewed Sacks countless times on air, and counted him as one of the inspirations for the show, to which Sacks contributed story ideas and was a frequent guest.

Author Reading | Until We Reckon: A Different Approach To Violent Offenses


Much of the recent focus of prison reform has been on nonviolent and drug offenses, but more than half of the people incarcerated are there as a result of violent offenses. Until We Reckon takes a clear eyed look at the question of violence, and offers approaches that can help both end mass incarceration and increase safety.  Danielle Sered, director of Common Justice, argues that the needs of survivors of violent crime are better met by asking those who commit violence to accept responsibility for their actions and make meaningful amends—something that does not happen in the context of a criminal trial or a prison sentence. Sered will be joined in conversation by Mariame Kaba, an organizer, educator and curator who is active in movements for racial, gender, and transformative justice. She is the founder and director of Project NIA and a Researcher in Residence at the Barnard Center for Research on Women.

Author Reading | Leaving the Witness: Exiting a Religion and Finding a Life


A third-generation Jehovah's Witness, author Amber Scorah, married to an elder, found herself as a missionary in China where preaching her faith is illegal. Living in an unfamiliar environment, learning a foreign language, and a different culture, unexpectedly, exposed her to a new way of thinking; turning her private life and personal faith upside down. Declared an apostate and losing everything she had ever known and believed, Scorah explains in spare, compelling prose how one may start life over to discover personal identity and meaning in the absence of faith.

Performance | Mobility Device: Collaborative Performance Art on Navigating Surroundings


Carmen Papalia, an artist and disability activist, presents Mobility Device, an innovative, collaborative performance in which he is accompanied by a marching band that plays a site-reactive score as guidance for navigating his surroundings. The work transforms the white cane—a symbol of someone with visual impairment—into a collective, sonic experience that opens up ways of thinking about care, collaboration, and a normative hierarchy of the senses. Papalia will work with the Hungry March Band, an 18-person ensemble founded in 1997 for the Mermaid Parade. With this work, he urges visitors to experience public spaces through the non-visual world.

Discussion | Histories Hidden in Paint from Manet to Picasso: Re-examining the Thannhauser Collection‎


The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has published a comprehensive study of its core holdings of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art. Thannhauser Collection: French Modernism at the Guggenheim brings to light revelatory new scholarship on the history of the German-Jewish Thannhauser family and galleries and, more broadly, the cultural milieu of Europe in the first decades of the twentieth century. Featuring seventy works by Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, and others, the book also offers rare insight into artist materials and processes. On the subject of the Guggenheim’s Thannhauser Collection and its recent publication, this is a conversation between Julie Barten, Senior Painting Conservator and Associate Director of Conservation Affairs; Megan Fontanella, Curator, Modern Art and Provenance; and Vivien Greene, Senior Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art. In addition to illuminating key conservation treatment projects (and several surprising discoveries), the program will explore the genesis of Justin Thannhauser’s French art collection and its eventual transfer to the Guggenheim in the 1960s. The collector-dealer’s lifelong endorsement of avant-garde art and eye for original talent are manifest in his rich story, which parallels the vision of museum founder Solomon R. Guggenheim to promote the art of his time. In English
