Symposium | Year Zero: More-Than-Human Worlding After 1945


1945 marks the end of a world war, the rise of decolonized states, the beginning of an unruly geological epoch. This symposium brings together extraordinary scholars who cross disciplinary boundaries to examine intersecting materialities and unprecedented logics of this postwar rupture, a Year Zero in which humans, nonhumans, and machines were violently remade. Thinking of security and affect through nuclear ruins (Joseph Masco), ecological consequences of growth paradigms (Julie Livingston), queer postcolonial bodies through chemical fertilizers (Vanessa Agard-Jones), remaking of a global South through oranges (Tiago Saraiva), smartness and resilience through infrastructure (Orit Halpern), and the emergence of metadata after the war (Lisa Gitelman), this symposium gathers together a striking array of critical-creative practices for tracing more-than-human worlding and inhabiting their relentless, differential trajectories.

Performance | The Art of Storytelling


Storyteller Darren Thompson shares the traditions and culture of his Ojibwe community. The Ojibwe (said to mean "Puckered Moccasin People"), also known as the Chippewa, are a group of Algonquian-speaking bands who amalgamated as a tribe in the 1600's. They were primarily hunters and fishermen, as the climate of Michigan's Upper Peninsula was too cool for farming. Darren Thompson is an award-winning Native American flute player and educator from the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe Reservation in Northern Wisconsin. His talent and hard work have brought him to perform at such venues as the National Indian Education Association, the National Congress of American Indians and the North American Indigenous Games, America’s largest American Indian cultural festival. Start times: 10am, 11am, 1pm.

Discussion | Amend the 13th: A Conversation about Ending Legalized Slavery in the United States and Abolishing the Prison System As We Know It


Amed the 13th is a national call for fresh thinking about criminal law and policy which places at its center the violence, degradation, trauma and dehumanization inflicted on communities that are targeted by our “criminal injustice system.” Now is the time for those who believe in democratic justice and full citizenship for all Americans to demand that the 13th Amendment’s Punishment Clause be removed from the U.S. Constitution. The 13th Amendment, laws emerging from its ratification (namely the Black Codes), and the resultant social order have been used as tools to enforce discrimination based on class, race, place, and gender. It is clear that there is a relationship between justice matters and racial constructions about White superiority and Black inferiority, and that this relationship fuels the exploitation and disproportionate incarceration of Black and Brown bodies. Moreover, the relationship limits the enjoyment of all the rights and attributes of citizenship by people of color in general and formerly incarcerated people in particular. Moderator: -- Flores A. Forbes, Associate Vice President Strategic Policy and Program Implementation in the Office of Government & Community Affairs Panel: -- Sheena Wright, President and CEO United Way of New York City. She will expand on the United Way literacy campaign and the historical connection of literacy on slavery, emancipation and the contemporary carceral state. -- Kendall Thomas is the Nash Professor of Law and the Director of the Center for the Study of Law and Culture. -- Mika’il DeVeaux, Ph.D., is the founder of Citizens Against Recidivism and a lecturer at Nassau Community College (SUNY).

Opening Reception | Beginning, End, None: Life and Capitalism


In the video installation Beginning, End, None, Hannah Black takes as a thematic starting point the classic high school biology analogy of the cell as a “factory.” The video installation dwells in and explores the oppressive aura of that comparison, which implicitly naturalizes the factory and commodifies the cell. While biotech has now made the analogy real by treating cells as sites of production, the mess of living still disrupts attempts to fuse life itself to capitalist abstractions. Using a mix of found, personal, and laboratory footage, Black explores the leakiness of metaphoric and real transmissions between concepts of biology and society. The video combines specialized imaging techniques used by labs to examine cells; personal videos and audio recordings from her phone, and other found footage, into something like a disaggregated essay film. Hannah Black is an artist and writer from the UK, currently living in New York. She works in video, sculpture, installation and performance. Recent solo and collaborative shows include: Aeter at Eden Eden in Berlin, aNXIETINa at the Centre d'Art Contemporain in Geneva, Some Context at the Chisenhale Gallery in London, I Need Help at Real Fine Arts in New York and Small Room at mumok in Vienna.

Lecture | Tech Is the Instrument: Musicmaking and Technology


From speaker Matam Berkowitz: "How making music led me to technology, using sensors to translate signals from the human body (motion, heartbeat, brainwaves, etc) into sound. How working in technology led me to impact entrepreneurship: building solutions for paralyzed, blind, amputated and autistic individuals to express themselves in new ways, and eventually starting my own company, SHIFT." The talk will feature stories, videos, and insights based on different projects: from interactive art installations for museums to conceptual performances for Google and Microsoft, from collaborations with XPRIZE around the affordable housing crisis to the Blockchain ecosystem to medical devices and rehabilitation. The presentation will end with a live demo of the Airstrument, a device that turns hand movements into music and makes music more intuitive and accessible than ever before. Matan Berkowitz lives in the nexus of art, technology, and positive impact. His award-winning inventions translate physical signals (such as brainwaves, heartbeats and movements) into music, turn everyday objects into instruments and have been displayed at museums, galleries, events, and stages worldwide. Matan regularly speaks and performs for the likes of TED, Google, Microsoft, and Forbes. His presentations often combine live musical demos of his inventions, while his unique workshops focus on Rapid Innovation - turning ideas into reality quickly and effectively, without relying on technology.

Author Reading | Mind Over Memes: Passive Listening, Toxic Talk, and Other Modern Language Follies


Too often our use of language has become lazy, frivolous, and even counterproductive. We rely on cliches and bromides to communicate in such a way that our intentions are lost or misinterpreted. In a culture of "takeaways" and buzzwords, it requires study and cunning to keep language alive. Diana Senechal examines words, concepts, and phrases that demand reappraisal. Targeting a variety of terms, the author contends that a "good fit" may not always be desirable; delivers a takedown of the adjective "toxic"; and argues that "social justice" must take its place among other justices. This book also includes a critique of our modern emphasis on quick answers and immediate utility. By scrutinizing words and phrases that serve contemporary fads and follies, this book stands up against the excesses of language and offers engaging alternatives. Drawing on literature, philosophy, social sciences, music, and technology, Senechal offers a rich framework to make fresh connections between topics. Combining sharp criticism, lyricism, and wit, Mind over Memes argues for judicious and imaginative speech. Diana Senechal is an educator and author whose writing has appeared in The New Republic, Education Week, American Educator, and The New York Times. Senechal is the 2011 winner of the Hiett Prize and the author of Republic of Noise: The Loss of Solitude in Schools and Culture (Rowman & Littlefield Education, 2012), which was a Choice Outstanding Academic title. She now teaches at the Varga Katalin Gimnázium in Szolnok, Hungary..

Lecture | The Realist Case for Eliminating Nuclear Weapons


This talk will dismantle the rationale for keeping nuclear weapons, reframe the debate, and present evidence and arguments demonstrating that eliminating nuclear weapons is not only realistic, but that it is the only pragmatic and prudent policy choice available. Speaker Ward Wilson is a Senior Fellow and director of the Rethinking Nuclear Weapons Project. He is respected internationally for his research into and critiques of the foundations of nuclear weapons thinking and new perspectives. His book, Five Myths about Nuclear Weapons, is a groundbreaking rethinking of nuclear weapons based on recently uncovered and reanalyzed facts from Cold War archives. Wilson has spoken at the State Department, the Pentagon, the U.K. House of Commons, the European Parliament, the Brookings Institution, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Performance | The Art of Storytelling


Storyteller Darren Thompson shares the traditions and culture of his Ojibwe community. The Ojibwe (said to mean "Puckered Moccasin People"), also known as the Chippewa, are a group of Algonquian-speaking bands who amalgamated as a tribe in the 1600's. They were primarily hunters and fishermen, as the climate of Michigan's Upper Peninsula was too cool for farming. Darren Thompson is an award-winning Native American flute player and educator from the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe Reservation in Northern Wisconsin. His talent and hard work have brought him to perform at such venues as the National Indian Education Association, the National Congress of American Indians and the North American Indigenous Games, America’s largest American Indian cultural festival.

Lecture | New York City Food History - Industrial Foods and Factories


This class is an introduction to the food history of New York City, telling the stories of the edible goods produced, consumed, and venerated in homes and restaurants within the five boroughs. The history of restaurants, the meals of the wealthy and those of the working class, and the foodstuffs on all these plates will be explored. New York City is a city of immigrants, and these diverse groups from around the globe have contributed to a constantly evolving definition of urban food culture. The topic of the second week will be Industrial Foods and Factories. One of the economies most impacted by the industrial revolution in New York City was food production. The peak time for the production of industrial, or packaged, foods originating in NYC was 1860 – 1960. What foods were produced, where were they marketed and distributed? How did these nascent food industry giants such as Nabisco and Domino Sugar re-shape the physical geography of New York City as well as the contents of dinner plates? The Professor: Dr. Shayne Figueroa is a food historian and recently earned her PhD in Food Studies from New York University. Her dissertation examines the social history of the school lunch program in New York City during the postwar period. Shayne has taught undergraduate courses at NYU (Food Issues in Contemporary Society), The New School (Introduction to Food Studies; Kids and Food), and Sterling College.

Classical Music | Orchestra Performs Music Inspired by Japan


Led by music director Chris Whittaker, Strings of the Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra come together to perform music inspired by Japan and Japanese-American composers. After the concert, Friends of WHCO enjoy a food and sake tasting courtesy of Tampopo Ramen. About the Program Kenji Bunch's Supermaximum opens the program -- a work inspired by the songs of Depression-era chain gangs in the American deep south. Next will be performed, Toru Takemitsu's Requiem, a piece from earlier in his career which launched him into prominence after the work was discovered by Igor Stravinsky. By the end of his life, Takemitsu had become one of the most unique voices and influential composers in both Japanese and western classical music. Japanese-American composer Karen Tanaka's Dreamscape follows -- a lush and imaginative work, featuring harp and violin solo. The concert concludes with Christopher Theofanidis' A Thousand Cranes, named from the Senbazuru legend that states if one crafts one thousand paper cranes his or her wish will be granted. The piece is inspired by the story of Sadako Sasaki, a young girl who died from leukemia after initially surviving the 1945 nuclear bomb detonation on Hiroshima. Sasaki began making cranes while in the hospital, and her story renewed a culture-wide interest in the practice. In 1958, a statue of Sadako holding a golden crane was unveiled in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and installed in the Hiroshima Peace Park.

Opening Reception | Incubate: A Fantastical Installation


Shih Chieh Huang’s fantastical installation – in which an octopus-like creature, crafted from whirring and blinking electronics, kryptonite-colored goo, and plastic bags, waves comically – and sometimes suggestively. It’s an installation that poignantly confuses the wonder inspired by mysterious creatures and deep space with the mesmerizing effects of technology. Shih Chieh Huang, a Ted Fellow in 2014, has exhibited his sculptures and installations at the 55th Venice Biennial Glasstress, Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial Japan, Experimenta Biennial of Media Art Melbourne, Busan Biennial, Aichi Triennial Japan, 52nd Venice Biennial Taiwan Pavilion, Biennial Zero1 San Jose, Biennial Cuvée in Austria, the ARC Biennial Australia, and MOCA Shanghai.
