Tour | Bloomingdale Neighborhood Walking Tour


Explore the history of this part of Upper West Side with local historian Jim Mackin. While it is still technically part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan's Bloomingdale District takes its name from its original Dutch settlers. Located between West 96th and West 110th Streets, the Hudson River and Broadway, The Bloomingdale District is an almost-forgotten enclave (and name) in the Upper West Side. Perhaps named for the old Dutch village of Bloemendaal ("valley of flowers"), this neighborhood was once home to the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. It is likely that the name fell out of disuse to avoid association with the facility. But now, the neighborhood is distinguished enough from the Upper West Side to the south, and Manhattan Valley to the east to warrant its own name - one that hearkens back to its roots, and befitting a scenic, almost "bucolic" city neighborhood.

Classical Music | Bach Vespers: BWV 170 Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust 


Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust (Delightful rest, beloved pleasure of the soul) BWV 170 is a church cantata by J.S. Bach composed in Leipzig for the sixth Sunday after Trinity. The prescribed readings for the Sunday are from the Epistle to the Romans, "By Christ's death we are dead for sin" (Romans 6:3–11), and from the Gospel of Matthew a passage from the Sermon on the Mount about better justice than the justice of merely observing laws and rules (Matthew 5:20–26). The text of the cantata is drawn from Georg Christian Lehms' Gottgefälliges Kirchen-Opfer (1711) and speaks of the desire to lead a virtuous life and so enter heaven and avoid hell. After starting his classical music career as a member of twice GRAMMY® nominated ensemble Seraphic Fire, Countertenor Reggie Mobley has since appeared with Academy of Ancient Music, Agave Baroque, Bach Collegium San Diego, Calgary Symphony, Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists, Pacific Music Works, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, TENET, and The Handel + Haydn Society.

Lecture | People, Animals, and Island Encounters: A Pig’s History of the Pacific


From Micronesians and Polynesians to Europeans, Chinese and Okinawans, when people first traveled to islands in the Pacific, they brought domesticated animals with them. As food sources and as companions, these animals had an important role in shaping island societies and in mediating encounters between travelers, settlers, and indigenes. This lecture will trace the place of pigs in encounters between these groups in Hawaii, Ryūkyū/Okinawa, and Japan, from the time of the earliest settlement until after World War II. At the same time, it will show how the ways travelers talked and wrote about domestic animals in other societies revealed their understandings of property, freedom, and human society.

Poetry Reading | Living Weapon: A Bracing Renewal of Civic Poetry


"A revelation, a shoring up, a transposition: Rowan Ricardo Phillips’s Living Weapon is a love song to the imagination, a new blade of light honed in on our political moment. A winged man plummets from the troposphere; four NYPD officers enter a cellphone store; concrete sidewalks hang overhead. Here, in his third collection of poems, Phillips offers us ruminations on violins and violence, on hatred, on turning forty-three, even on the end of existence itself.” - Granta.

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.

Dance Performance | An Offering: Interrogating and Celebrating Black Masculinity 


Through a series of performance vignettes, dance artists Du’Bois A’Keen and Kingsley Ibeneche invite us to see and be seen, to testify and to witness. They will create space to interrogate and celebrate Black masculinity through a montage of memories and manifestos—both performative and interactive. We journey to be whole, in the fullness of our power, and to be held, in the place where we need to heal, engaging with personal and collective thoughts, questions and realizations concerning masculinity, maleness and manhood. Can you imagine yourself fully healed and whole?

Book Club | My Ántonia A Novel About Immigrants of America By Pulitzer Prize Winning Author


The reminiscences of a New York lawyer, Jim Burden, about his boyhood in Nebraska, particularly a young Bohemian girl named Antonia Shimerda, are set against the backdrop of the American assimilation of immigrants. Willa Cather (1873-1947), the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of more than fifteen books, was one of the most distinguished American writers of the early twentieth century. She achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, including O Pioneers! (1913), The Song of the Lark (1915), and My Ántonia (1918). In 1923 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours (1922), a novel set during World War I.

Lecture | Being a Slave of the Community: On Race, Republicanism, and Domination


In an 1848 address, Frederick Douglass cryptically said to his audience: "In Northern States, we are not slaves to individuals, not personal slaves, yet in many respects we are slaves of the community." What precisely does it mean to be a slave of the community? The talk explores the answer that nineteenth-century African American thinkers offered and the way their answer transforms how we should understand the philosophical tradition of republicanism. Speaker Melvin L. Rogers is Associate Professor of Political Science at Brown University.

Discussion | The Russian Media: Thirty Years of Freedom of the Press


A screening of Yury Shchekochikhin: His Life in Words and Deeds (2017), followed by a panel discussion. The 40-minute documentary examines the life and work of investigative journalist and Duma representative Yury Shchekochikhin. An outspoken champion of democracy, free expression, and the rule of law during perestroika and in post-Soviet Russia, Shchekochikhin was famous for his probing investigative reporting on corruption, the KGB, human rights’ violations, international organized crime, and the war in Chechnya. He died in 2003, under unclear circumstances, in the middle of a major investigation of corruption at the top levels of the Russian law enforcement and intelligence services. The panel will consider both Shchekochikhin’s legacy and the current state of the Russian media thirty years after the law on freedom of the press was passed in 1990. PANELISTS Mark Lipovetsky (Columbia University) Nadezhda Azhgikhina (PEN Moscow) Tom Kent (Harriman Institute) Nina Khrushcheva (New School) Katrina vanden Heuvel (The Nation)

Poetry Reading | Living Weapon: A Love Song to the Imagination


A revelation, a shoring up, a transposition: Rowan Ricardo Phillips’s Living Weapon is a love song to the imagination, a new blade of light honed in on our political moment. A winged man plummets from the troposphere; four NYPD officers enter a cellphone store; concrete sidewalks hang overhead. Here, in his third collection of poems, Phillips offers us ruminations on violins and violence, on hatred, on turning forty-three, even on the end of existence itself.

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.

Lecture | Fighting for Tyranny: How State Repression Shapes Military Performance


Past research has highlighted trade-offs between the loyalty and competence of military personnel in authoritarian regimes, suggesting that some autocrats can sacrifice military performance by purging competent, yet potentially disloyal officers. Yet officer purges and "coup-proofing" represent only a fraction of the state violence against the military. We know very little about how mass repression in broader society affects individual behavior on the battlefield. To address this question, NYU's Arturas Rozenas employs a unique dataset containing millions of individual records on Red Army conscripts in the Second World War and millions of arrests and political killings during the Soviet Great Terror in the 1930's. Rozenas links the two data sources at the level of individual birth location to study how exposure to repression at the individual and community level impacted the battlefield resolve and loyalty of soldiers. His preliminary findings suggest that Red Army soldiers more exposed to pre-war repression were less likely to flee the battlefield, more likely to die, but also less likely to show individual initiative for which they would receive military decorations. While repression may have helped resolve some collective action problems associated with fighting, it ultimately resulted in conformity and a crippling lack of initiative, not heroism.

Lecture | Unmaking Citizenship in India


In 2014, the Supreme Court of India ordered an update of the NRC, a register of all Indian citizens in the state of Assam, citing unverified data to justify large-scale illegal migration. Serving as an exercise to separate Indian citizens from “foreigners,” the NRC is responsible for the unimaginable harassment of a large section of society. Now the government wants to implement the NRC all over India, sparking protests across the country. Join us for a conversation on the human rights implications of the NRC and India’s recently-passed Citizenship Amendment Act. Speakers: -- Aman Wadud, Human Rights Lawyer; Founder of the Justice and Liberty Initiative -- Rohit De, Associate Professor, Yale University; Legal Historian of Modern South Asia; author of A People’s Constitution: Law and Everyday Life in the Indian Republic

Author Reading | Unbound: How Inequality Constricts Our Economy and What We Can Do About It


Do we have to choose between equality and prosperity? Many think that reducing economic inequality would require such heavy-handed interference with market forces that it would stifle economic growth. Heather Boushey, one of Washington’s most influential economic voices, insists nothing could be further from the truth. Presenting cutting-edge economics with journalistic verve, she shows how rising inequality has become a drag on growth and an impediment to a competitive United States marketplace for employers and employees alike.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Light Minded


Cate Woodruff's solo exhibition is a selection of photographs by the artist, taken between 2008 and 2019, illustrating her experimentation with formlessness, spaces between objects and light-science. The images presented are representative of Woodruff's fascination with light as a medium and her mastery with various photographic media, including homemade lenses, a technique she has invented and explored over the last decade. Her photographs are achieved by placing objects in direct contact with light, through and across reflective surfaces. The combination of ephemeral phenomena with color in light reflection underscores Woodruff's work.

Talk | Nurturing Our Friendships: How to Enhance Your Relationships for Greater Health and Happiness


Among the issues for the evening's conversations will be: How loved and supported do you feel by your friends? How do you cultivate friendships where both of you feel heard? Nelson’s formula for nurturing friendships includes positivity, consistency, and vulnerability. Do you agree? Which friend-nurturing practices could help your friendships the most? How can you create space for more of them in your friendships in the near future? Do you think connectedness is correlated with the significant health issues? How does that make you feel? Is there anyone in whom you want to invest in more, to enhance your friendship? If yes, what makes you want to invest in this friendship? What action will you take to invest in this friendship?

Lecture | The American Co-op Movement


We are in a Cooperative Moment – one in which people find that they are excluded from their economy or society. In the past, people have looked to the cooperative business model to ensure workers, consumers, or producers have a greater say in the market – whether in commodity markets (agriculture co-ops with two million farmers), consumer finance (credit unions with over 100 million consumers), or basic utilities (rural electric cooperatives with nearly 50 million rural citizens). This talk will focus on how one in three people in the United States have used cooperatives to solve heretofore unsolvable problems and capture more economic opportunity: through greater public awareness, political organization, and advocating for a supportive public policy environment. Speaker Doug O’Brien serves as the President & CEO of NCBA CLUSA where he works with the cooperative community, both domestically and internationally, to deepen its impact on individuals and communities.

Conference | New Ruralities in Mexico: Phenomenology and Genealogies


This conference shall be dedicated to the exploration of the phenomenology of new ruralities in Mexico, and to establishing some of the historical parameters of this great contemporary transformation. Thus, alongside anthropology and sociology of Mexico’s new ruralities, they hope to develop at least some rudimentary guidelines for the study of their multiple historicities, with special attention to emerging class formations, new life-worlds, the renegotiation of property relations, family and community structures, environmental degradation, and political expression. These are subjects to which Friedrich Katz made robust contributions during his time, including in his classical essay on peonage and haciendas during the Porfiriato, and in his distinctive view of agrarian politics presented in his masterwork on Pancho Villa, to name two salient examples.

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.

Gallery Talk | American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection: Exhibition Tour


Everyone has a story to tell--a life lived, witness to and participant in events both private and shared. Such moments are captured by American folk and self-taught artists in powerful visual narratives that offer firsthand testimony to chapters in the unfolding story of America from its inception to the present. American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection showcases more than seventy stellar works of folk and self-taught art from the museum's premier collection. Beautiful, diverse, and truthful, the art illuminates the thoughts and experiences of individuals with an immediacy that is palpable and unique to these expressions. The artworks are organized into four sections--Founders, Travelers, Philosophers, and Seekers--that respond to such themes as nationhood, freedom, community, imagination, opportunity, and legacy. Evocative visual juxtapositions and accessible contextual information further reveal the vital role that folk art plays as a witness to history, carrier of cultural heritage, and a reflection of the world at large through the eyes, heart, and mind of the artist.

The Toronto metropolitan area is rapidly becoming a ‘majority minority city’ marked by social differentiation within and between ethno-racial minorities. Even in this officially multicultural city, gendered white privilege persists among the adult children of immigrants. To understand why white men from the second generation still do better in the Toronto labor market than minorities and women, who are often more highly educated, this talk compares and contrasts the employment experiences of second generation men and women.

Transforming stereo equipment and soundproofing materials into sculptural forms, Kotik’s work offers a ritualistic meditation on our experience of sound and silence. In his newest work, Kotik replaces literal sound equipment with abstract forms of amplifiers and guitars to imply sound without even a whisper. A newcomer to New York from South Africa, Richard Hart’s work also alludes to unseen forces and ritualistic practices. Hart is inspired by the spiritual landscape of Africa, from witchcraft and Muti, to Shembe and the Zionist movement. Hart sees in African religions a sort of mash-up, a willingness to combine elements of Western religion, superstition, and traditional healing. It is this cut-and-paste attitude to religion and indeed life in Africa, that is central to Hart’s practice. Working in photography, painting, mixed media, video and assemblage, his pieces create a new and imagined hybrid of unknown rituals and mysterious totems.

Opening Reception | Before It Sinks In: Paint and Pastel


An exhibition of paintings and drawings by Carolyn Case. Through paint and pastel, Case articulates time as space: what came before sets a foundation for what comes after, and while the paintings offer a sense of resolve, the playful gaps between now and then suggest the possibility for infinite expansion.

Gallery Talk | David Reed: New Paintings: Artist Tours Exhibition


David Reed and curator Jeffrey Weiss will give a tour of the exhibition. The pair will discuss the outsize works in the show, some over a decade in the making, and how they respond to the galleries, testing and maximizing their spatial boundaries. Indexically numbered rather than titled, the works are painted in either intense, otherworldly colors or primarily blacks and grays, as if contrasting the delirious possibilities of the full-color moving image with the austerity of grayscale.

Author Reading | Driving While Black: African American Travel and the Road to Civil Rights


How the automobile fundamentally changed African American life―the true history beyond the Best Picture–winning movie. Dr. Sorin recovers a forgotten history of black motorists, and recounts their creation of a parallel, unseen world of travel guides, hotels, and informal communications networks that kept black drivers safe. At the heart of this story is the famous Green Book, which made possible that most basic American right, the family vacation, and encouraged a new method of resisting oppression.

Opening Reception | Sistergarden: A Dizzying Daisy-Chain of Faces


Ellen Berkenblit’s Sistergarden populates the main space with eleven large-scale paintings that form a dizzying daisy-chain of faces. Each face emerges from a velvety abyss with unbridled intensity and a noticeable shift in palette. The artist’s signature electric colors now merge with earth tones and twilight blues. This otherworldly color language, coupled with formal choices in cropping, creates a subplot of intrigue. Berkenblit’s compositions intentionally exclude narrative attributes, allowing the viewer to focus on the emotional qualities of paint application, brushstroke, and shape.

Talk | After the Gig: How the Sharing Economy Got Hijacked


When the “sharing economy” launched a decade ago, proponents claimed that it would transform the experience of work—giving earners flexibility, autonomy, and decent incomes. It was touted as a cure for social isolation and rampant ecological degradation. But this novel form of gig work soon sprouted a dark side: exploited Uber drivers, neighborhoods ruined by Airbnb, racial discrimination and rising carbon emissions. Several of the most prominent platforms are now faced with existential crises as they prioritize growth over fairness and long term viability. Based on nearly a decade of research, this talk will analyze what went wrong and discuss ways forward for platforms and workers that are capable of realizing the promises of the early days. Speaker Juliet Schor is Professor of Sociology at Boston College.

Discussion | Ecocriticism in French Studies: Where Are We Now?


As ecocriticism has burgeoned in literary studies and throughout the humanities, its presence has been somewhat limited in the field of French and Francophone literature. This panel will open with a discussion of the state of the field of ecocriticism in French Studies and then move into case studies of ecocriticism coming to bear on 20th- and 21st-century French-Language Literature. By expanding ecocriticism beyond the Anglosphere, this panel will tackle how climate catastrophes have registered differently on the European mainland and throughout the former French empire. With: -- Lucas Hollister is Assistant Professor of French and Italian Languages and Literatures, Department of French and Italian, Dartmouth University.  -- Hannah Freed-Thall is Assistant Professor of French Literature, Thought and Culture, Department of French Literature, Thought, and Culture, NYU. -- Morgane Cadieu is Assistant Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of French, Yale University.

Discussion | The Opposite of Freedom: Detention in the Land of the Free


A panel discussion exploring the history of United States’ immigrant detention policy, and how it brought us to where we are today. More than 52,000 immigrants and refugees are currently detained in facilities across the United States. Some see immigrant detention as a deterrent and the enforcement of law and order. To others, it’s a human rights crisis that puts up inhumane barriers to migrants seeking safety and opportunity. This panel of experts discusses the history of immigrant detention, how and why detention policies have expanded over time, the impact on migrants (including rising numbers of children) and communities, and the work being done to address current issues. Speakers: -- Emily Kassie, Director of Visual Projects, The Marshall Project -- Julia Preston, Contributing Writer, The Marshall Project -- Nancy Hiemstra, Stony Brook University, author of Detain and Deport: The Chaotic Immigration Enforcement Regime -- Amelia Marritz, Immigrant Justice Corps Fellow, staff attorney at Brooklyn Defender Services

Discussion | Prosecuting Domestic Terrorists


In 2019, high profile attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Gilroy, California, raised questions about how these killers are prosecuted. Despite the public perception that attacks like El Paso and Gilroy are acts of domestic terrorism, “domestic terrorism” is not a formal federal crime. Mary McCord of the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection and Seamus Hughes of George Washington University’s Program on Extremism discuss what constitutes “domestic terrorism” and the challenges in prosecuting it.

Discussion | The Fight for Fair Elections: Expanding the Vote in 2020


Given the especially high stakes of the 2020 election, the need for broad and unobstructed voter participation could not be greater. Yet the past decade has seen a plethora of legal curtailments on voting rights. Since 2010, 25 states have adopted strict photo ID requirements, curbs on early voting, and voter registration restrictions that have all served to gut the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a major win of the Civil Rights movement. Finally, the perennial challenge of voter turnout still exists – over 25% of eligible voters are unregistered, and only 50% of registered voters are expected to vote, making the prospects for a truly democratic election in 2020 very concerning. What lessons can be gleaned from a long history of heroic efforts to ensure equal voting opportunities and rights for all? What are advocates, unions, and other activists doing to combat voter suppression and promote voter registration and turnout in the upcoming election? What should be the top legislative priorities of a more progressive, post-2020 federal government to strengthen our democracy by expanding the vote?

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.

Lecture | Futile Exercise? The British Army's Preparations for War, 1902-1914


According to the official historian Brigadier-General James Edmonds: 'In every respect the Expeditionary Force of 1914 was incomparably the best trained, best organized, and best equipped British Army which ever went forth to war'. There has been considerable debate over the extent to which Edmonds' claim was justified, and to which the British Army had learnt the lessons of recent events (above all, its chastening experiences in South Africa). Conventional wisdom has it that the British Army in 1914 was utterly unprepared for the development of trench warfare from October 1914 onwards, and that it took many lives and a costly 'learning curve' for the British to come to terms with the new conditions of warfare. Given that war was expected in the decade before August 1914 - and that a great deal of time and money was spent preparing for that war - it seems obvious to ask why the British Army was not better prepared for the war when it came.

Reading | Groundhog Day: The Killing of Bonita Carter


Neta Bomani and Mariame Kaba will discuss their new zine collaboration, which excavates part of the history of Black people’s resistance to state violence (specifically policing). It’s often said that few people rally around the injury or death of Black women to demand justice. Yet the truth is that there are examples that contradict this assertion. The resistance varies in scale and impact and it is sometimes hidden from our view. However, where there is injustice, you will also find some resistance especially led by Black women.

Concert | Yasna Voices: The Bulgarian Women's Chorus


Vlada Tomova directs a joyful evening with singers who share a passion for ensemble harmony, folk traditions, and experimentation. Weaving together traditional Bulgarian village songs with artfully arranged a cappella pieces in the style of Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares, Yasna Voices reveals the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. These ancient songs tell timeless tales of sweet or forbidden love, wild mountains, potent wine, and the secrets of the moon. This evening features the world premiere of Annie Beliveau's "Praznuvame Zora."

On the occasion of the Rojava Film Commune exhibition at e-flux, this event hosts discussions and screenings that respond to the exhibition and the general practice of the commune as one informed and formulated through political ideology. Addressing cultural practice sitting between activism and artistic expression and springing from a concrete ideological framework, this event explores the role of ideology in art in the twenty-first century, while it also investigates new toolboxes emerging through ideologically informed cultural practices which confront our hypercapitalist present.

Classical Music | Reflections on Beethoven


Raj Bhimani, piano. Beethoven's Sonata Opus 101 took inspiration from Baroque keyboard works and also provided inspiration for later composers. In this program, the Sonata will be surrounded by Bach's Toccata in E Minor and Cesar Franck's monumental Prelude, Chorale, and Fugue, offering an opportunity to reflect on the influences on and from Beethoven. Pianist Raj Bhimani's concerts are hailed by the New York Times as "virtuosic, heartfelt and eloquent." Time Out NY noted him as being a "gifted and highly expressive pianist." Performing regularly across North America and Europe, he also makes frequent appearances in India. In New York, where he resides, he appears often at Lincoln Center as well as at other venues.
