Conference | How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century


Erik Olin Wright spent the last years of his life thinking about ways to challenge and transform capitalist societies. He distilled his thinking in a book, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century (Verso, 2019). The symposium is designed to launch a debate about the strengths and weaknesses of Wright’s approach. They seek to both honor their colleague’s memory and assure that his ideas become part of current discussions of socialism and socialist strategy. The event will consist of three panels during the day and an evening session that will include tributes to Wright and a keynote by his friend, Ira Katznelson.

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.

This discussion will explore this complex issue, asking how to make opportunities more accessible for immigrant communities who lack the resources vital for upward workplace mobility.

Author Reading | Apple, Tree: Writers on Their Parents


It happens to us all: we think we've settled into an identity, a self, and then out of nowhere and with great force, the traces of our parents appear to us, in us--in mirrors, in gestures, in reaction and reactivity, at weddings and funerals, and in troubled thoughts that crouch in dark corners of our minds. In this masterful collection of new essays, the apple looks at the tree. Twenty-five writers deftly explore a trait they've inherited from a parent, reflecting on how it affects the lives they lead today--how it shifts their relationship to that parent (sometimes posthumously) and to their sense of self. Editor Lise Funderburg will be joined by contributors Daniel Mendelsohn, Lauren Grodstein, and Marc Mewshaw.

Opening Reception | Dialogues on a Future Communication. Entanglement #2: Resilience


The exhibition is conceived of as a cross-disciplinary forum, evolving around and structured by the work of German artist Jenny Brockmann. The poetic and architectural installations by Brockmann are activated by the artist in a series of "Entanglements" -- conversations among artists, scholars, activists, and researchers on diverse forms of knowledge. Entanglement #2 invites a discussion on culturally specific epistemologies and whether -- and how -- one might approach reconciliation of these differences. The speakers are artists Stephanie Dinkins and Jes Fan, economist Sheen Levine, anthropologist Elizabeth Povinelli, and sociologist Dina Shvetsov.

Tonight's performance will feature an original work by Amir ElSaffar, a classically trained trumpet player who developed his artistic language by combining jazz with the aesthetics derived from traditional music of the Middle East. ElSaffar's new piece "Ahwaal"--or "states of consciousness," an important concept in Sufism--fuses the microtonal resonances of Iraqi maqam with a subtle nod to Beethoven's late quartets. For this special engagement, ElSaffar is joined by Polish artists Ksawery Wojcinski, Waclaw Zimpel, and the Lutoslawski Quartet.
