Talk | Artist Talk: Projeto Chernobyl


This exhibition presents Alice Miceli’s series of 30 radiographs produced in 2006–2010. Miceli developed a method of image making to document the enduring effects of the Soviet nuclear plant explosion of April 26, 1986. Though gamma radiation continues to be present and to cause health problems and deaths in the area, it is invisible to the naked eye and to traditional methods of photography that have been used to document the region’s ruins. With Projeto Chernobyl, Miceli made this contamination visible via direct contact between the radiation and film, which was exposed in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for months at a time. Both technically and conceptually complex, Miceli’s work questions our ideas of vision, memory, politics, and environmental issues.

Discussion | Off the Rails: Megadevelopment and the Future of the City


It may be time for urbanists to call this "the era of the megadevelopment." Everywhere one turns, a rail-yard is being transformed into a futuristic shopping district, highways are becoming greenways, and pop-up neighborhoods are being accessed through gated, securitized portals. From some perspectives, we are watching utopias take the place of underutilized urban land, while, from others, large-scale development reads as undisguised dystopia. As megadevelopments rise worldwide, often financed by the taxes we pay, we ask: How much was the public involved in determining their outcomes, or in deciding whether a development was necessary at all? How are public benefits integrated into these plans and how beneficial are they in reality? What is the consequence of megadevelopments on democracy, displacement, and the city of the future? Discussants: Zaire Dinzey-Flores (Rutgers-New Brunswick) Winifred Curran (DePaul University); Betty Y. Chen (Principal, BYC Projects, and former New York City Planning Commissioner); Moderator: Louise Harpman (Gallatin).

Forum | Are Creative Industries the Future of Middle Class Jobs in NYC?


Creative industries such as advertising, film, and design have been among the fastest growing segments of New York City’s economy in recent years. Overall, the creative sector now employs more than 300,000 people across the five boroughs, with a large share of these positions paying middle income wages. But will New York be able to sustain this growth in the years ahead as other cities make major new investments to develop their own creative economies? What should city economic development officials do to support the continued growth of middle class jobs in the creative industries? And what can city policymakers do to ensure that more New Yorkers from lower income backgrounds are able to access well-paying jobs in the creative sector?  This forum will explore the growing importance of the creative industries to New York’s economy, identify barriers to the sector’s future growth, examine what policymakers can do to strengthen the city's creative economy, and discuss how to expand access to the good jobs in the city’s creative industries.  The symposium will include a panel discussion featuring: -- Anne del Castillo, Commissioner, Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment -- Laura Callanan, Founding Partner, Upstart Co-Lab  -- Andrew Essex, Founder of Plan_A; former CEO, Tribeca Film Festival -- Winston C. Fisher, CEO, AREA15; Partner, Fisher Brothers -- Alain Sylvain, Founder & CEO, Sylvain Labs

Lecture | Down the Bridle Path: Exploring the Vestiges of Greenwich Village's Equine Past


For centuries New Yorkers relied on horses to transport them uptown, downtown, crosstown, and beyond, often retracing the paths created by the Native Americans on horseback who came before them. However, nearly all of the city’s equine culture has been forgotten, supplanted by a cacophony of cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles. And yet this history is not only present, but especially palpable in Greenwich Village, which still offers vestiges of the City’s equine past through its former horsewalks, stables, and mews. Join architectural historian, Gregory Dietrich, as he takes you down the bridle path of this all but forgotten, yet tangible, legacy of Village horse culture. Speaker Gregory Dietrich is the principal of Gregory Dietrich Preservation Consulting, where his work entails historic architectural and landscape studies, designation reports, historic tax credit applications, and grant writing.

Lecture | The Work of Roger Excoffon, the French Designer, Painter and Philosopher


Roger Excoffon’s work is a central part of the personality of post-WWII France — the three decades that the French call les trente glorieuses. Perhaps best known for his display types, such as Mistral and Banco, Excoffon spent many years as art director of Marseille’s Fonderie Olive. In the 1950s and ’60s, his work rapidly found its way into the very fabric of everyday life, visible in the tiniest villages of rural France on the awnings of beauty parlors and exterior signs of garages. Beyond his printing types, Excoffon also expressed the fundamental spirit of the times through his posters for Air France, his work in advertising, and his graphic design program for the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble. He was a prime mover in les Rencontres de Lure, France's equivalent of the Aspen Design Conference. Bruce Kennett take you on a tour of Excoffon's joyful and passionate work.

Discussion | Grammy Nominated and Pulitzer Winner Musicians Celebrates The Legacy Of Clara Schumann


The contemporary chamber pianist Mishka Rushdie Momen honors the Romantic-era musical icon and the primacy of female composers Clara Schumann. In honor of Clara Schumann's legacy--both her musical contributions and the path she paved for future generations of female musicians-- Momen presents a program that includes works by Schumann, as well as world premieres by Vijay Iyer and Nico Muhly which Momen commissioned in the same manner that Robert and Clara Schumann commissioned work by Brahms and Mendelssohn. Following her performance, Rushdie will be joined by two composers, 2019 Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Reid and Grammy nominee Missy Mazzoli, for a conversation about representation in composition today, and Luna Composition Lab, a mentorship program and support network for female-identifying composers ages 13-19, which the two co-founded. Pianist Mishka Rushdie Momen has given solo recitals at the Barbican Hall, the Bridgewater Hall, and major venues across the UK, as well as abroad in New York City, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland and India. Composer Ellen Reid's first opera, Prism, about a sexual assault survivor's psychological struggles, was awarded the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Music. Composer and pianist Missy Mazzoli's work Vespers for Violin won a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

Lecture | Remaining a Ukrainian Woman: Normative Femininity as "Armor" in the Gulag


In the 1940-50s, tens of thousands of Ukrainian women were sentenced to long-term imprisonment in the Gulag for political charges. Their experiences of living in the most brutal conditions of the Soviet camps have not yet been the subject of special historical-anthropological research. This talk examines the personal memoires of Ukrainian female former prisoners of the Gulag in order to reveal women’s gendered behaviors and daily practices that sought to preserve their gender identities and thus counteract the dehumanizing effects of the camps. Speaker Oksana Kis is a historian and anthropologist, a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Ethnology, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in Lviv.

Talk | Artist Talk: Graphic, Calligraphic and Historic Influences


Sanya Kantarovsky does not like to hear his work discussed neatly in terms of figuration or abstraction; instead, he relates it to the graphic, calligraphic, and historic influences that guide his practice. Kantarovsky produces video installations and sculptures, though he is best known for his paintings; his signature works often have thinly applied, wiped, or scraped layers of paint, and feature narrative scenes populated by isolated, sinewy figures.

Lecture | Lessons from the Propaganda Underground: How Cold War Optics Can Help Us Read Our World


The twentieth century witnessed the advent of modern propaganda. Many associate propaganda with the Nazi regime, with its vitriolic efforts to conjure militant hyper-nationalism and anti-Semitism. But far more pervasive and long lasting was the propaganda that characterized the Cold War that followed. Propagandists from the Soviet Union and the United States mobilized new and old techniques in mass communication to wage a war of words and images on the global stage. In this talk, Margaret Peacock examines the practices of Cold War propagandists in the Soviet Union, the United States, and the Middle East to unpack the lasting ways that the hearts and minds of the world have been swayed.

This is the final chapter in a two year project for the artists. There will be more than 64 hours of performance over the duration of the exhibition. Atlas Unlimited: Acts VII-X renders the banalities and atrocities of Syrian sculptor Zakaria Almoutlak's life through sculpture and vocal performance. Artist Karthik Pandian and choreographer Andros Zins-Browne have been working with Almoutlak since 2017, incorporating fragments of his story into the previous acts of Atlas Unlimited. Refused entry to the U.S. due to the 2017 travel ban, Almoutlak's presence will be conjured by the voices of Ganavya Doraiswamy and Aliana de la Guardia, drawing on karnatik, operatic, and pop vocal traditions. This is a discussion of the exhibiton with Aruna D'Souza and Matthew Jesse Jackson.

Lecture | Civil Justice and Social Inequality


Millions of Americans every year face civil justice problems that can lead to bankruptcy, homelessness, poverty, family separation, and ill health. Thinking about civil justice in a new way, as a social institution, propels a growing research evidence base that reveals how civil justice contributes to inequality. At the same time, this evidence provides opportunities to radically rethink how we "do" access to justice. The research identifies promising emerging models at the same time that it points to persistent challenges in both access to justice practice and in pushing social scientific research forward in this critical area.   Speaker Rebecca Sandefur is with the Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University.

Lecture | Objectivity and the Humanities: Prospects for a New Realism


Over the last decades, the humanities have come under pressure from the scientific worldview. To many, it seems as if the humanities provide us at best with less-than-objective knowledge claims. Arguably, there are at least two overall reasons for this. On the one hand, the scientific worldview tends to associate objectivity with the kind of knowledge-acquisition, explanation, and justification characteristic of the natural sciences. On the other hand, the humanities themselves have contributed to the impression that they might be less relevant than the natural sciences to epistemic progress due to internal problems having to do with the very concept(s) of knowledge, reality and objectivity. Speaker Markus Gabriel holds the chair in epistemology, modern and contemporary philosophy at the University of Bonn.

Lecture | Useful Pictures


This lecture traces questions of representation in architectural drawings, arguing from a philosophical perspective that architectural drawings are pictorial mediums, rather than epistolary or diagrammatic tools. Perspective views of buildings are generally regarded as pictures, but working drawings, plans and sections are not: they are considered to be diagrammatic, “conventional” representations. I believe this is wrong and that all architectural drawings are pictures. They employ special conventions, for sure, but the key point is that they show what something looks like, and that is what pictures do.  Speaker Richard Hill studied at Cambridge University.

Talk | The Notre-Dame Fire, and the Paris Cathedral's Original Fall and Resurrection


The April 2019 fire that nearly destroyed the Cathedral of Notre-Dame revived a polemic with resonance well beyond France. Should the edifice be reconstructed “as it was” or is the very idea of Gothic “authenticity” questionable – and should the extent and nature of restoration be open to discussion? This talk proposes to leave aside Notre Dame as lieu de mémoire and focuses on it as a material object within a historical context.   Speaker Allan Potofsky is a historian and Professeur des Universités at the Université Paris-Diderot.

Discussion | How Can We "Re-Weave" Our Social Fabric?


The Weaver Movement is inspired by David Brooks, the New York Times columnist who has issued this call for social and cultural renewal: “The Weaver movement is repairing our country’s social fabric, which is badly frayed by distrust, division and exclusion. People are quietly working across America to end loneliness and isolation and weave inclusive communities. Join us in shifting our culture from hyper-individualism that is all about personal success, to relationalism that puts relationships at the center of our lives.”   At this session, you’ll come together to get to know each other and share our thoughts on why so many Americans feel isolated and how we might all work to build connections that can weave a strong social fabric where we all feel recognized, respected and valued. Conversations New York has partnered with many other community conversation groups and the Aspen Institute’s Weave Project to hold discussions like this. The aim is to explore the causes of today’s rising sense of isolation, loneliness and distrust, and what we can do together to weave a strong social fabric.

Lecture | American Foreign Policy in the Middle East


President Trump has made overturning the Iran nuclear deal, the defeat of ISIS, and the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and Syria the cornerstone of his America First policy, determined to maintain only a light footprint in the region. Yet over the past two years, US Middle East policy has zigzagged between retrenchment and engagement as the administration has drastically reduced its diplomatic and civilian efforts in the region while changing realities on the ground have necessitated the deployment of additional American troops. What are the consequences of this reliance on the military and on highly personalized relationships with the region’s ruling families and autocratic rulers while the drivers of instability in the region—suppression of democracy and human rights, sectarianism, corruption, and economic stagnation—remain unaddressed?

Lecture | Liverpool: Multiple Deprivation and Multiple Celebration


In this lecture, Professor Richard Hill will discuss how, alongside deprivation and austerity, Liverpool humor has invented the term “multiple celebration” to describe the flourishing heritage, tourism, culture, retail, and partying worlds of the city centre. Some of the UK’s most deprived areas are in Liverpool. The historic core of the city is a World Heritage Site and one of the top British centres for cultural tourism. The retail hub of the city is thriving at a time when town centre retail is generally in decline. Bars and night life abound. Gentrification is taking place in the beautiful streets of “Georgian Liverpoo.l” Elsewhere low standard new housing is replacing Victorian terraces at suburban densities but with none of the charms of the leafy nineteenth and twentieth century suburbs that surround the city. There is virtually no market for new office buildings, and the rate of new company formation is low, so the economy of the city hangs by a thread.

Talk | Love Will Save the World: The Architecture of Studio Fuksas


The context is not only what we have in front of us, which is related to the past, but it is also thinking of the cities of the future. Being contemporary means working in an area considering how it will be in, at least, the next twenty years. These are the main issues of our days: the mutability of contemporary architecture and sustainability. Human beings no longer live in the countryside, but mostly in urban areas. Urban planning should be based on the study of the present, reflecting the past and carefully thinking of the consequences that  actions will have in the future. Studio Fuksas, led by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, is one of the most distinguished international architectural firm in the world. Over the past 50 years the company has developed an innovative approach through a strikingly wide variety of projects, ranging from urban interventions to airports, from museums to cultural centers and spaces for music, from convention centers to offices, from interiors to design collections. With headquarters in Rome, Paris, Dubai, New York and Shenzhen, the practice has completed more than 600 projects and has worked in Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Australia, receiving numerous international awards.

Lecture | Bolshevik Tower of Babel: The Language Politics of Internationalism in the Early Comintern


This lecture will explain the Bolsheviks’ evolving approach to the politics of language diversity in their struggle to kickstart global proletarian revolution in the first decade of Soviet rule. Leading Bolsheviks – most of whom were fluent in multiple European languages – provided the bulk of the translation and interpretation services at the first two Comintern world congresses. As the Comintern and its influence grew, however, so too did the dilemmas of multilingualism for socialists who were attempting to unite in pursuit of global communism.

Jewish museums, a relatively recent phenomenon, have become a mainstay of Jewish life and also serve as strategic points of entry for others into Jewish history and creativity. As a consequence, these museums now figure in an array of new cultural practices. Visitors to Jewish museums come not only to observe, but also to engage and at times to intervene with these institutions. In addition, visitors take the museum home with them, incorporating its practices of collecting, curating, and displaying into their lives.

Lecture | The Sociology of Dispossession


This talk will draw on comparative research on rural land dispossession within and beyond India to suggest some theoretical and empirical coordinates for a sociology of dispossession. Land dispossession impacts the lives of millions of people and is highly consequential for economic growth, political protest and inequality in many countries. Nevertheless, this social relation has been relatively neglected by sociology. Dispossession, I argue, is a social relation of coercive redistribution that exists in most societies but varies greatly in its drivers, socio-economic consequences and politics. This social and historical variation creates immense scope for comparative sociological research.  Speaker Michael Levien is assistant professor of sociology at Johns Hopkins University.

Lecture | Fire! English Architects’ Observations on the Paris Conflagrations During the Commune, 1871


Fire is the enemy of buildings, and recent examples such as the terrifying fire at Grenfell Tower in London, the devastating fire at the Glasgow School of Art and the fire at Notre Dame in Paris, all bear witness to the appalling helplessness a raging fire inspires when it takes hold. There are also incidents where fire becomes symbolic of a new beginning. The Great Fire of London 1666 and the Chicago Fire of 1871, stood at the start of bright new phases in these cities’ histories. The fires deliberately set during the Paris Commune of 1871 provoked many different reactions, none as curious as those of  English architects. Two of these, Robert Edis and Richard Phené Spiers went to view the city shortly after the collapse of the Commune and their observations are surprising, and not in accord with other observers. What was going on?

Lecture | Affection and Survival: Primo Levi and Friendship in the Camp


Affection is a lesser known aspect of the human and Jewish experience in the camps. Mostly it is related to the fractured past of which the camp is the present. Having written some of the essential pages on the human experience in the Lager, Primo Levi continued contemplating and writing about it throughout his life. This talk will question affection in Levi’s writing and its place in the camp as a strategy of survival. Affection saves, but it also prompts Levi’s internal inquiry that leads to the heart of his defining conceptual innovation: the Gray Zone. Speaker Uri S. Cohen teaches Hebrew and Italian literature at Tel Aviv University.

Discussion | Asia First, Europe Second? Balance of Power Theory and Regional Prioritization in US Grand Strategy


Why does the United States prioritize Europe or East Asia? So far, students of US grand strategy have failed to give this question the attention it deserves, let alone provide a convincing answer. But scholars cannot stay out of this debate any longer. The 2017 US National Security Strategy speaks of the erosion of America's competitive edge, and warns about how Russian revisionism and China's rise threaten the balance of power in Europe and East Asia. With: -- Luis Simon is a professor in International Security at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and director of the Brussels office of the Elcano Royal Institute. -- Linde Desmaele is a doctoral fellow at the Institute for European Studies (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and a researcher at the KF-VUB Korea Chair.

Lecture | The Price of Love for Old Men


This talk considers the nineteenth-century French genealogies of two related concepts in sexual ethics: “sexual poverty,” a phrase that names an unavoidable reality in any sexuality competitive society; and “sexual entitlement,” a putative “right” to sexual intimacy, which was occasionally imagined in utopian terms in the nineteenth century, but whose near-inevitable slide into misogyny is evident in its contemporary iterations among online “incel” communities. Even so, the notion of sexual entitlement is a revealing symptom of French modernity, in which Enlightenment political buzzwords, capitalist-informed modes of social analysis, and the distortions of the sexual double standard are simultaneously at work. Considering writers as diverse as Fourier, Chateaubriand, Staël, and Baudelaire, I explore how nineteenth-century French texts ask prescient and provocative questions about the nature and limits of the discourse of “rights,” and about the political life of the libido." Speaker Andrew Counter is Associate Professor of French at the University of Oxford (UK) and a Fellow of New College. In English

Lecture | The Determinants of Unequal Access to Health Care in the U.S., and the Consequences


Though average life expectancy has increased from 68 years of age in 1950 to 79 years of age in 2015, inequality in life expectancy remains high in the United States, especially compared to other developed countries. Across age groups, inequality in life expectancy among infants and children has decreased, but inequality in life expectancy among older adults has increased. Moreover, most of the recent gains in life expectancy come from medical advancements that treat conditions that occur in middle age and at the end of life, rather than in early life. This presentation will explore how changes in the U.S. health care system in recent years have affected access to care for different populations, and how differential access to care has contributed to inequality in life expectancy and other health outcomes. Speaker Jessica Van Parys is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Hunter College.

Talk | Artist Talk: At Once Abstract and Representational


Olga Balema’s sculptural objects are at once abstract and representational. In the Berlin- and Amsterdam-based artist’s more figurative work, she creates cast objects that echo familiar forms such as gloves, seemingly abandoned by or in search of a body to wear them. Other works rely on a more abstract notion of the body, such as her clear sacks filled with metal or paint shards suspended in liquid inside and supported by metal rods. Balema’s notion of the body troubles philosophical schisms between concepts of object and subject, while also accounting for feminist or technologically motivated notions of the body.

Lecture | The Return of the Native: Right-Wing Discouses in Europe


The right-wing discourses surrounding identity in Europe’s present-day politics and public spheres are often academically analysed in terms of populism, Islamophobia and racism. While acknowledging those concepts’ validity, Duyvendak will show that in the European context populism, Islamophobia and racism are actually all subtypes of nativism: religious nativism, problematizing Islam and Muslims; populist nativism, problematizing ‘native’ elites; and racial nativism problematizing black anti-racism. Duyvendak will discuss whether Islamophobia, anti-black racism and populism are as nativist in the US as they are in Europe. Speaker Jan Willem Duyvendak is director of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, Distinguished Research Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam and he chairs the Council for European Studies.

Lecture | Monuments Without Heroes: Medardo Rosso and the Contemporary Origins of Modern Sculpture


Two decades after unification, Italy was characterized by uncertain nationalism and ambivalent internationalism. The generation that grew up in the aftermath of the Risorgimento was filled with hopes followed by disillusionment. The death of Risorgimento hero Giuseppe Garibaldi in 1882 intensified feelings of anxiety about Italy's future, which were compensated by an unusually large number of highly conventional monuments to the hero erected throughout Italy. Only one young, internationally-minded sculptor, Medardo Rosso (1858-1928), saw through the hollow official rhetoric by rejecting the tradition of heroic mythmaking in sculpture. This talk sheds light on unexplored aspects of Rosso's early political experience and his "counter-monuments", which intended to revolutionize the concept of the monument in modern times. His far-reaching ideas would only come to fruition a century later, finding sequelae in contemporary art. Speaker Sharon Hecker is an art historian who specializes in modern and contemporary Italian art.

In a feat of remarkable research and timely reclamation, Eric K. Washington uncovers the nearly forgotten life of James H. Williams (1878–1948), the chief porter of Grand Central Terminal’s Red Caps―a multitude of Harlem-based black men whom he organized into the essential labor force of America’s most august railroad station. Washington reveals that despite the deeply racialized and often exploitative nature of the work, the Red Cap was a highly coveted job for college-bound black men determined to join New York’s bourgeoning middle class.

Book Club | Monday Night Reading Group: Sula


This month's title being discussed is Sula by Toni Morrison. Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

Lecture | "in her arms she holds them": condoned kinship structures in a poetic Jewish/Black marriage...


In this talk, New Kinship Structures in New American Poetry, Elizabeth Goetz investigates the various views that Hettie Jones, a helpmeet Jewish woman, and LeRoi Jones, an FBI-targeted African American man later known as Amiri Baraka, present of their interracial marriage and their shared social scene. Reading texts written by LeRoi, Hettie, and the friends, like Frank O'Hara, who were their literary interlocutors together illuminates the inequalities their kinship structures, though inclusive in many ways, nevertheless condoned. She argues that the intertextual poetic network constituted by these texts serves as a metaphor for the alternative kinship network of friends and lovers it portrays.
