Lecture | On the Dialectics of Democracy Promotion: A Critical Republican Approach
Democratization has become a battle cry in contemporary political discourse: Celebrated and promoted for spreading the only legitimate form of government by some, criticized and rejected for serving as the core of a neo-imperial world order by others. Drawing on republicanism and critical theory, the lecture proposes a theory of domination that transcends this dichotomous view. It links a critique of power with an account of democracy and shows why both the defense and the critique of democracy promotion bear the risk of reverting from a fight against domination into a politics of domination. Speaker: Dr. Dorothea Gädeke of Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.

Opening Reception | Ties That Bind: Sculptures by Brandon Ndife
The show is a meditation between four new sculptures, on how things are connected: living, dead, organic, human. Each work, at it’s root, wrestles with the ontologies and hierarchies of presence that contend with our present landscape; where objects and their meaning have their tendrils spreading outward. The multiplicity of interpretation takes on a likeness of something close to us but yet constantly emerging.

Play | New Voices Playwrights Festival: Ah Sweeter Lyme
Trinidad-American community leader Keami La Croix has made a name for herself in Crown Heights’s West Indie community as the "Black Robin Hood." But when she decides to create a campaign to reform the violence-stricken, yet very popular Brooklyn J’ouvert — the pre-dawn celebration that originated from slaves impersonating their masters’ masquerade balls — she is met by severe resistance from the black community that once loved her. Written by Karina Billini. Directed by Andrés López-Alicea. Featuring Jonathan Crimeni, Moire Kiyingi, Jillian Macklin, Miranda Powers, and Matthew Thomas Scott.
